Linux "Many Linux distributions have taken the path of easy GUI-based installation, in order to appeal to a broader mix of users. But not Arch Linux, which emphasises simplicity of technical complexity over general usability. Richard Hillesley explains."

Portage is quite good IMO. I think there was a distro that was using NetBSD's pkgsrc ... but I forget it's name.

My favourite package tools are OpenBSD's ... I find they very simple to use. Ports system works flawlessly to.

I am mainly like Redhat based stuff since I used to look after a server room of CENTOS servers. So I don't mind YUM ... I am sure some people hate it.
