No, that's the difference between yum and apt, if anything.

Fedora also doesn't utilize depends as Ubuntu does, Ubuntu upgrades go smoothly because of 'ubuntu-desktop'...

'aptitude show ubuntu-desktop'


This is also the primary reason Ubuntu is bad, to have smooth updates, you need to have everything installed that they think you need... which is fine for novices...

Yeah there should be a way of removing things from metapackages. I'm guessing thats an issue with dpkg though. I usually never do a rolling upgrade, because I usually hose my system far before that. I'm a tinkerer and I like to test things so for the most part by the time a new version comes out, if I don't' have the beta installed already, my system is usually slow from all the crap in it. Luckily I have three harddrives to test crap on. I've been thinking about taking up fedora again to at least see where they are going. I was going to do the same with Suse.
