I've been talking a bit with a_thing about this in #nuxified IRC channel. I find yum to be quite slow. Not only does it apparently update the package database every time it is ran (which even on slower broadband networks can annoyingly slow down the overall install process), but calculating dependancies takes a bit longer than I'd like.

Other RPM distros

Besides RedHat, Fedora, Mandriva and PCLinuxOS, other RPM based GNU/Linux distributions seem to be pretty obscured. What are they? I'm sure there are some good and worthy ones among them?

Which ones have you tried and what are your experiences?
