I only use yum if necessary, apt and synaptic seem to do a better job for me

Greetings
I too am in STRONG favor of a yum frontend. I run FC3 on an AMD64 and apt/synaptic tries to uninstall half my system because of the 'duplicate' (x86_64 & i386) libraries and programs. up2date is FAR too clunky, slow and unusable, but CLI yum seems to work fairly well. I like the synaptic GUI and having the total list of packages available in front of me. If someone's intelligent enough to develop one.....more power.

Where can I find Yumex? All of the links I've found (going to various pages on linux.rasmil.dk/mambo) fail (404). Thanks.
