Do you feel that yum is ready to work as fast or regarding dependancies

seems that apt with rpms is still more efficient in processing the data
required.  Maybe thats just me I'm not sure.

I personally believe a 1 cd install is a must since most people always
complain of the 'bloatedness' of Fedora.  They always point to ubuntu as
say thats what it needs to be like fast and efficient.

I can see their point if they are a desktop user however I don't see
their point if they want to setup a server. I personally always
download the dvd's for the pure sake that its one cd and its got
everything I personally need on it.



Well, a "desktop" should easily fit on a single CD, and yes, that's really what we want. BTW, I've been always wondering: do all these people that like single CDs have broadband to download hundreds of megs of extra stuff? Or they do not anything that is not on the CD?

Nothing preventing people to setup up Fedora Extras ISO's.
