Being on openSUSE, of course my choice was RPM, though there is nothing bad I could say about dpkg either. Just RPM is what I prefer.

Love pacman overall. I use apt most due to my love of Debian, but pacman is IMO the best package manager.

I think aptitude/apt-get should have its own listing. That's just me.

Don't forget that apt now is it's own program seperate from the legacy apt-* suite.

I vote for Synaptic. Why is there no listing for Synaptic?

Synaptic isn't a package manager, it's a GUI front end.

Synaptic uses the dpkg format on the backend.

I may now be mostly using RPM, but pacman remains the best: efficient, straight-foward, flexible . . . who could ask for anything more.
