CNR package management

CNR, standing for Click and Run, is a package management system, originally developed for freespire, that is now spreading to other linux distros, like ubuntu, debian, fedora and others. It seems to be a good alternative to apt-get/aptitude/synaptics, since it's able to give a lot more of information about the product that's going to be installed, it will be able to install proprietary software, check all package dependencies and still manage to keep the computer clean. It will maybe be a good choice, but, still, I think I'll stay with the official ubuntu package manager, I believe that it would be changed if CNR really becomes that great!
