Well, I'll try to explain my view.

Using pbi system is not really a better way for finnal users only, it's for users and above all for distributions developers.

As you said the finnal user don't care about click on synaptic or click on other package manager tool. The problem today is, as we can see on debian (my work system) and other linux main distributions, the big ammount of work to be done to maintain the whole system with thousands of packages.

If you provide a system, as I think is trying pcbsd, where third parts can provide their software without care about dependencies, libraries, etc... developers can have all their efforts in main system.

MS don't care about provide a flash package for windows is Macromedia who care about provide a flash package...
