Personally, I use Debian and apt/dpkg as well. I love it for its
simplicity. However, the cluster I am setting up is being maintained by
people who prefer RH. We're using 6.2 (I personally don't like 7.x) and I
wish to upgrade 128 computers with as little time necessary. I understan RH
will be chargind money for their "up2date" service, so what is "yup" and
thier "update" and can it be used in a similar fashion?
