use case howto?

Jim Abernathy

I approach embedded Linux from a path of taking a Distro like Ubuntu or Fedora and chopping it down to a working set of code that forms the final solution.  Obviously, not the same methology as Yocto.  With some success with the current methods, it's difficult to see the advantages of Yocto.  I'm reading what I can find to get smarting on Yocto, but like most new concepts, you try to compare what you used to do with how to do it with the new concept.
For example, if I use a distro, I can install packages really simply with yum or apt-get; update them the same way. If I start with a Yocto meta-??? that's closest to my hardware solution, and get it working at a base level, how do I add things, like browsers, or other application?
