Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "I must say that both of these distros have pleased me a lot and completely suffice my requirement of a home desktop system. Both automatically detected all my hardware and had installed the drivers required. However, when it comes to comparing the two, I get a little biased towards the more polished distro." Elsewhere, it is reported that Ubuntu's new Linux version sports a debugging tool.

Yep, appears to follow apt-get's marking of auto-installed packages. The auto-installed packages show up under a different section under the "status" view, and you basically have to mark them manually (not really a big deal for me).
You can even change the "auto-installed" status from within synaptic if I remember correctly (been a while, I usually keep auto-installed stuff cleaned out so I can't test that right now).
