About package management subsystem of debian
Installing packages on debian based distros are very difficult and painful than installing packages on rpm based distros.I have used several Linux distros and the distro which was very user friendly was opensuse especially in the way it installs packages and resolving dependencies and I am expecting yast and package manager similar to openSUSE on debian upcoming release wheezy.
I have requested about these issues on debian forums but the response was not good.
Someone already started to port yast to debian but stopped due to lack of resources.
I would be happy if these happen.
