This is one of those frequently asked questions I see on various IRC, webforums, and mailling lists
apt is to yum
deb is to rpm
apt has its advantages over yum and vice versa.. the main differences I see are world view. [What I mean is that if you were to type ls and instead get the output you get from DOS dir, you would be perplexed and annoyed.]
I remember a similar comparison over deb and rpm in the past where each had its technical merits that the other didnt.
Personally I think they should all swith to conary :P
