More seriously:
-I have heard that yum has ability to show the package changelog diff
for pacakges to be updated, while zypper lacks it
-yum shows the repository from which the package will be installed.
(Very useful if you have many repos with duplicate packages.)

Other thing is that yum will not abort on impossibility to download a
package. Basically, on a flaky network connection, doing "yum -y update;
yum -y update; yum -y update" will succeed because the packages are
first all downloaded and when impossible to do so, next one is
downloaded. This is something that facilitates nightly unattended upgrades.
