That makes very little sense. apt doesn't fix anything to do with rpm,
just as it doesn't fix anything about dpkg. Its just (another) indexing
and downloading frontend.
And its not significantly different from:
Apt is useful, but 99% of people's complains about rpm seem to be they
never bothered to download the documentation CD, or just decided they
were too cool to read the docs, and hence don't know about up2date,
which has been in Red Hat for four or five versions now.
