apt-get vs emerge
After upgraded to FC3, I tried to install apt and gave apt-get a try. After explored a various subcommands and installed/upgraded a few packages, I am happy with its ease of use.
However, when comapring to emerge from Gentoo, I found it has one very nice feature that apt-get doesn’t have: search. With search, emerge allows me to browse a list of applications that has a matching string in its name or description. This can be useful if I am interested to see what related packages are available and perhaps install a different implementation as a result of such search.
So, here is my RFE for the developers on apt. Even without such a minor feature, apt-get still blows the dust off uptodate/yum.
