Had to vote dpkg -- I'm too lazy for anything else.
Well, colour me surprised.

I think Ubuntu-based distro's is what did it. Debian (and it's non-ubuntu derivitaves) vs. Slackware (and it's derivatives) I'm willing to bet you would be right, but Ubuntu seems to be used as the basis for 2/3 of the distributions there are now.

I agree -- with Mint leading the "Desktop Distribution" poll it's likely that dpkg will be voted for.
I wonder whether anyone has gone outside of the package manager on a distro? Slackware and the source-based ones aside I can't see it being possible.
Sorry, I'm just being boring.

I prefer to distros with a package manager that is either the most commonly used or ones that were the most commonly used in the past. This includes the Debian tree, Slackware with pkgtools which was the most popular distro during a time in the 90's, distros in the Mandriva tree which use urpmi, and the Red Hat - Fedora group which uses yum. Some other package managers are certainly in the argument for the best, but they were never the most used in GNU/Linux.

I like pacman because I can easily figure out what each package does! And Makepkg and PKGBUILD makes it really easy to create your own packages.
