    Ubuntu uses apt-get and a GUI thing like Pup but it works much
better. I have no desire to do it in a terminal. When I set it up the
first time it took 90 updates. I was amazed how fast it went and zero
problems. There are several things not Fedora or normal Ubuntu
applications that I MUST have. On Ubuntu they are all a simple # apt-get
install and they do all the work bringing in the necessary libs and such.

    At this time I can say the Ubuntu update system is very superior to
Pup and yum used on Fedora. I suggest Fedora look close at Ubuntu and
see how to get it working here.


You can use apt-get and synaptic with Fedora too.

yum install apt-get synaptic

and now you can run apt-get on Fedora.






    Both systems use Gnome and that makes both look VERY similar. A nice
feature of Ubuntu is that that mount all the Linux systems on boot to
/mnt and you can then, of course transfer things from the Fedora systems
to Ubuntu. Or the reverse.

    Ubuntu is based on Debian and the place that files go and do are odd
to a Fedora user. There is no grub.conf and /etc/fstab is a real MESS! I
am not sure my Fedora /home directory can be used with Ubuntu, but I
will try just for fun.

   I got apt-get and it is just 3 -5 times faster than yum on F7!

So it is available and I suggest EVERYONE get it ASAP. You will be glad you did.
