So, Amzo, what is the benefit of pacman towards pkgng?
Pacman is far superior to foolBSD's shitty little pkgng which is a total copy of apt-get. pkgng is at useless as BSD devs and users. Or should i say dev/users cos only the devs are users of BSD and even then they rarely use it. instead they use Mac OS X more often.
One essential package that needs to work first before I migrate is "schroot". That way I could use a static "core" os and then seamlessly run a dynamic Arch in schroot (including X11 stuff) for big and complex stuff that would be horrible to try to build statically.
Ps. Oh by the way - if I ever had a say about a mascot I would vote for a Mr. Potato variant of Tux, but perhaps I am the only one that would appreciate such a pun Ds.
It's not exiciting, it's shit. Just like the other BSDs.
