I would only use one or the other. The main difference is just that thier written by two different groups both for the same purpose. Unless you don't like swaret for some reason, there is no need to switch.

Of course, Swaret and Slapt-get are for people who can't get over leaving Debian.

Actually, I wasn't referring to Slackpkg, only the apt-like programs, which to me seem just as alien as the new Anaconda installer for Gentoo...

this topic was discussed billion times, the main difference is that swaret supports "packages dependency check"(which is not recommended by Pat), slackpkg doesn't use anything else then original vanilla pkgtool...
