apt isn't really dead, but it isn't evolving or fixing bugs as
well. Especially for x86_64 systems with multilib installations apt is
no fun. :(

Honestly, the only non-anaconda upgrades that ever convinced me where
these of apt. So if you are on i386 use apt to upgrade. On x86_64 use
anaconda and then smart to heal the wounds anaconda rips open. smart
and yum are both memory eaters and lag on performance compared to apt.
