Just so I know witch programs I have installed at any given moment, in one
centralised tool. If it has been installed as a deb, I can use dpkg to get a
summary of the systems installed packages. (Updates, removes a.s.f.)
It's not hard to remember 1 or 2 programs like this, but if I get 10+ I tend
to forget allot of them....
You can't take damsel here now.
