dpkg is the package manager that apt-get and Synaptic use under the hood.

Pacman

So easy to use - with yaourt on hand to access foreign packages through the AUR. Very flexible. very powerful.

Mostly better configured packages and dependencies than with RPM on either SuSE or Fedora.

Nice, simple command line operations - no GUI needed or wanted.

Slackpkg on Slackware. Does the job well without auto dependency resolution.

All i've ever used is Debian and Debian based distros so my vote for dpkg is biased.

Voted for dpkg, but apt-get should really get it. Man, how I miss apt-get when I'm on non-deb boxes! Nothing else comes close.

Have been an Arch Linux user for many years now, so it seems only sensible to vote for "pacman".
