Ok, I read both of those threads, and neither of them
addressed my question as asked.

My question is not, as you seem to think

"Which is better for me, apt-get or yum?"

My question is

"What are the considerations (advantages/disadvantages of each package)
which enter into such a judgement?"

Neither of those threads addressed the question I asked. Each of them
mentioned that such considerations exist, neither detailled what
they might be.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
