I would say they are just different, not better or worse, though if
you like a GUI package management tool, nothing beats "synaptic"
on the ubuntu/debian family (I tend to prefer the command line
tools since I use ssh to get to most systems and don't want
to fool with remote X display, so for me it doesn't matter
much if I use yum versus apt-get or rpm versus dpkg - it is
just a question of sorting out all the command line options).
