trust me. Red Hat with YUM or APT is the way to go.

Could you lay it out for me slowly and simply? What are the tradeoffs between up2date, apt-get and yam? In particular insofar as access to latest security patches?

Redhat just closed out my 1 month demo license (without notice, apology, or thank you) so I need alternatives. I've installed apt-get, which seems to do everything up2date did and more. Tried yam briefly but it didn't work when I did; don't recall why. Didn't push very hard either; I was inclined towards apt-get from MacOSX/fink experience.
