I would like to know why was yum choosen to be distributed in fedora instead of apt-get. I started with apt-get before knowing yum existed and was actually delivered with my dist. When I gave yum a try, I was disappointed. Its verrry slooow, and it seems not to be doing much more. I've read from kde-redhat maintainer apt-get is no longer developped, but other than that, what are the main differences between the two tools?
I don't want to start passionnate debate here. I simply want to understand yum better and the reasons motivating the choice of a tool over another.
