After using Kubuntu for several years I've moved to openSUSE recently as I found more and more quirks in Ubuntu lately. Mrk's articles were very helpful during my decision-making process. openSUSE is now running very smoothly. However, package management is very different from the Ubuntu/Debian style. I still have to learn about such peculiarities like setting the proper priorities for my repos and about why and when to "Switch system packages to the versions in this repository" and to solve the often numerous resulting dependency problems. Indeed very different from Ubuntu ... While reading about package management I found to my surprise that APT is also available for openSUSE - see http://en.opensuse.org/APT . Does it offer any advantages over Yast/zypper? Is it faster? Does it resolve dependency problems more elegantly? Does it work reliably in openSUSE? In short: Has anybody of you gained some experience with APT for openSUSE?
