What about slapt-get (Salix and Vector)?

Actually, I don't think there's much to choose between them all, although I draw the line at Pacman and slackpkg.

Who's using Conary since Foresight shut down?

DPKG vs APT vs apt/apt-get/aptitude/synaptic

As this keeps causing confusion:

DPKG: The actual package manager

--APT: A set of libraries adding extra features for DPKG

----apt/apt-get/aptitude/synaptic/...: user front-ends using both DPKG and APT

Thumbs up Cards

I vote cards of course.

I enjoy it very much, not only because I coded it myself but because it's:

- Very fast thanks to C++ language
- Very flexible thanks to the collections concept
- Small dependencies tree (lib c++, libarchive and libcurl)
- Alias is going to promise a lot
- Totally transparent when using ports or binaries packages
- Very clear Compilation logs
- API available for future Graphical front End (I started something with fltk because it's very light and very fast)

slackpkg is built on top of pkgtool. So the two separate votes does not exactly make sense.

slackpkg with its ability to update what you want and get what you want without dependency hell.
