Yup. I maintain both Debian and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 systems
at work, and I find yum and apt-get have actually grown quite
similar. In any case, yum is light-years ahead of the old 'up2date'
tool RedHat used to ship. The choice of packages in RHEL is still
rather limited, though -- for example, nut-client isn't in there, so
I had to grab a Fedora RPM to interface to my UPS.
