Which is better? Why?
I know yum is the official update mechanism here and in Fedora Core, but

better than OS/2.
Let's try to keep the discussion objective:-)
I'm asking, hoping for some insights into why RH might (apparently) be
moving to yum in preference to up2date (yum is now used within Anaconda).
Other than general discussion, I'd also like to know what I'd muss by
using up2date on CentOS.
I'll start with this:
What has yum that provides this functionality:
up2date -d -u
