LXer: File under 'disturbing': Debian Wheezy doesn't ship with the Synaptic Package Manager

Published at LXer:

My current Debian Wheezy installation is an upgrade from Squeeze, so I was unprepared for what just happened: I'm doing a bunch of installs in between my other work, and I just got around to a traditional Wheezy desktop installation with the GNOME desktop using netinstall image. I was unprepared for the only GUI package manager to be GNOME Package Kit. No Synaptic Package Manager. Not even the "Sofware Center" ported from Ubuntu that shipped in Squeeze.

Tragic! Scandalous!!
Whenever I've used Debian, the first thing I'd do post-installation would be browse through Synaptic.
