I don't doubt that, it's probably mainly a question of habit; but with aptitude
you have all the information about every recently added, obsolete and
upgradeable package just under your eyes in the ncurses gui.
It is very very comfortable.
I saw tha yum is not less usable or less capable but you should invoke it for
every wished action. I'll take the habit. :-)

Thanks for your time.
