Re: just curious about Debian vs Redhat

It is called update-agent. It can do almost the same things as apt can do. The main difference is that you can only get updates  from priority.redhat.com, while apt can get them from any mirror. Update-agent for rh6.1 only runs in an X session. I'd take debian apt-get any day.
