I predict a close call between slackpkg and dpkg as I'm expecting the. Votes to be distribution-dependent. So, if they're not this could be interesting.
Had to vote dpkg -- I'm too lazy for anything else.

I use dpkg and slackpg on regular basis. dpkg gets a little higher vote from me this year.

Regards.

I still mostly use Slackware's basic pkgtools suite, but I have come to trust slackpkg on the machines where I have used it - which is kind of a major adjustment for me!

So slackpkg it is!

I was under the presumption that the poll meant low level package managers, hence no aptitude/yum/zypper. Then again, that leaves one to wonder why slackpkg is included instead of pkgtool.

The design for the Nix package manager seems a lot superior than the current widespread options! We really need rollbacks in APT!

dpkg was the closest match but actually I use apt from the command-line all the time now; used to use synaptic in the days when I was more of a GUI user.
