Synaptic is not a package manager its a front end to apt

Coming from someone who predominately has used Arch...Apt is so damn slow. At least, for me.

Apt was just way, way slower for me from day one on every distro with it I've tried.

Interesting. I don't have a fast hard drive or anything (sata1 caviar se) or a fast cpu (athlon ii x3) I never noticed any difference in speed between aptitude and pacman so I would have thought its the same for everyone. Yum is a bit slower, but I havn't seen any speed differance great enough for me to prefer one of apt/pacman/yum over the other based just on that. I have always liked yums readout, and how it automaticly removes the vast majourity of orphans (the normal ones, not the fedora definition) both small things but I tend to see yum apt and pacman close to the same level in everything else. Apt does full system upgrades very well. Pacman doesn't need to. Once fedup is stable I won't be missing anything

Hello,

I've been using Linux Mint 14 on my laptop since Windows went bad on me a few months back. Been an Mac user for many years, then ended up with a laptop with Windows 7 a few years back. Linux Mint 14 gave my old laptop a second life. Love it. Just built myself a computer and planning to install the new Mint 15 on it.
