  • The command line
  • Customization ( kernel. system, etc..)
  • Not dealing with Micro$uck and the window$ OS anymore -- PRICELESS...

Lack of a central repository is just an extension of freedom of choice.

What if your choice is to be able to install a program and all it's dependencies effortlessly with a few keystrokes?

Then you choose to install slapt-get or another distro! BTW, how do you uninstall the dependencies with pacman? I've noticed that when I uninstall a program, the dependencies remain. Is it possible to get the dependencies too, all in one go?

Code:
pacman -Rs
And to find unneeded dependencies that are installed:

Code:
pacman -Qdt
