After switching distros ~ every 6 months for years, I came to the conclusion that one of the main factors to decide if I like it or not is its package manager..

Not saying that some are better or worse than others, just that i have my preferences..

How important is the package manager to you guys, do you even use it via terminal or are you using a GUI (in which case it doesn’t really matter, does it?..)

Kind of a random question but would be interesting for me to know..

I like pacman, not even sure why, it just feels right to me and apt-get just because I know it best😅

    I'm the same as you. The package manager is one of the biggest difference between distributions, and it's hard (for me at least), to replace Pacman/AUR.

    I'm on Antergos now, aur is super nice to have. Almost everything you need is there.

    Package manager and what's in the repos. And that's why I'm yet another Arch user. Can't beat the AUR.
