When I tried Mandrake 8.2, rpm had a bad dependence management,
deb was much better, then when I tried Fedora Core 3 I had many problems
with yum (mainly slowness). I didn't tried an rpm-based distro since Fedora 
Core 3 so I don't know how rpm and its tools work nowadays.

Instead I never had any problems with debian and its packaging system.

Pacman is the best and faster packaging system I ever tried.
Emerge (Gentoo) is a good packaging system, but its binaries support it's not
very good and it's getting slower and slower,
in fact I was using paludis (an alternative package manager for Gentoo) in my 
last year of Gentoo Developer.

Sorry. I didn't mean to sound arrogant. I want to collaborate to ArchLinux,
because I love that distro and the community around it and I think I could
help and surely I'll learn something new.

Thanks for your time and this wonderful opportunity.
