Fedora's was a mess. They've been trying to fix it forever,a nd this is just another attempt.

A firehose is a firehose. Oh... you can compress the stream however you want. Or you can separate out only the new breakage, and send that compressed, to be combined with the original good stuff and old, unfixed, breakage on the client side. But the end result has the same problems, plus any new problems introduced by the shiny new delivery system. The churn problem is preserved by the process, and made worse by something akin to the second law of thermodynamics.

I'm sure that your Debian's updates are better than Fedoras. But pretty much any distro's updates are. We've all simply escaped in different directions.

I will agree to your every word. yum is hell and so is RPM. I also moved from Fedora/Redhat to debian due to the same reason. People who wants to know the difference between yum and apt-get or synaptic please read the link below:
