[CentOS] Why is yum not liked by some?

I'd like to comment on this list to say that despite earlier reports 
saying that I had fixed my YUM problems, it still freezes my computer 
every now and again. I've been told this might be because I have too 
little free space on my hard drive, so I cleared over 9 gigs, and it 
still freezes sometimes. I was told my RPM database was screwed, so I 
rebuilt the database and it still freezes.

I'm not sure what the problem is now, but I do know that on the one hand 
YUM seems like a great idea, and when it does work, I think it's really 
cool. But something is not right with it, and I don't even have error 
messages which let me know what went wrong, so I can't say that I would 
recommend YUM.
