Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

Yes. you are obsolutely true. I have been planning to post this as a article sometime soon and the important difference between yum in fedora and apt-get in debian is the size of the repositories

http://cobind.com/yumgui.html

remember though yum has great amount of improvements which is in the development tree and will be in fc3. so the gui currently doesnt provide all the functionality but if you are just in need of a quick gui like synaptic go ahead and install it and it would helpful to send thomas chung a quick email to appreciate his docs.
