I maintain several machines remotely: several debian. one FC3.

Debian, of course, uses apt-get, and apt get supports download-only. So 
I run a nightly cronjob to download needed updates.

Yum only supports download-and-install. I have the clear impression that 
yum is slower than apt-get even without having to wait for downloads to 
occur, but as it stands and without making allowances, yum is way slower.

And worse, more of FC's packages get updates than Debian's, and I don't 
think it's entirely because I happen to have more installed on FC3 than 
on any of the Debian systems.
