They don't really promote the package manager, i think package management would entice a lot of users to linux, and do a lot to counter the old "you cant go down to a store and buy whatever crappy software off the shelf" fud.

Apple users seem to love the app store - getting everything in one place, updating everything centrally etc... Linux package management offers something very similar.

There is nothing like some screen-shots to illustrate a point:

Easy as pie.

20311 packages in the listing.
