I started with apt long ago and switched to yum when it started
automatically doing the 'right' thing with kernel updates.  Yum
is much slower on the first update since all the headers are
downloaded as separate files, but after that there is not a
big difference on  a reasonably fast machine and the default
of always checking for new headers seems right for the way
I use it.  I always set http_proxy and ftp_proxy on the command
line ahead of the yum update command to point to a squid box
configured to cache large files so it is faster for multiple
machines or if I reinstall and start over later.
