Bear in mind, I'm still very much a linux newbie...
After using redhat 7 and 8 on my desktop and on a couple of 'servers' I have
switched my desktop to debian (woody) and I'm very very impressed with the
apt-get end of things.
I used to have all sorts of woes with package dependencies on redhat, but
having said that, the apt4rpm did work quite well.
Am now in process of changing over the other tow redhat boxes to debian boxes.
(once I figure out the kernel package thingy !)
Cant comment on fedora.
