I use apt regularly and generally get on better with it that yum (I find the

apt frontend synaptic very good). I think most problems probably come from a

poor choice of repositories to use with it, not apt-get itself. If you have 
conflicts you can run into problems, but then also I think with yum.

Not really any more than with yum though. With both you have to decide which

repositories to use and in both cases edit some config files accordingly...

Hi Chris,
Other than the obvious choice of a repository in the same country you live
in, what is a bad choice of repositories??
