How does it compare to yum in Fedora and CentOS?

Nowadays, they're pretty much equal. Years ago that didn't used to be the case. APT used to have far more packages available in the default repositories as compared to YUM, and used to perform quite a bit better. At some point YUM switched to using sqlite to store it's metadata which improved performance quite a bit, and the availability of the EPEL repository greatly increased the number of packages available to be on par with APT.

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.
