Bollocks.  I am quite aware of the differences between the two distros.
 Do not insult my intelligence.  The point I'm making is that some
dependencies seem unnecessary.  (Again, I'm unable to come up with a
specific example at the moment, since I'm at work, but I'm sure there
will be a post shortly that says 'why do I need this to install this?')

Adding all those dozens upon dozens of dependencies in just result in
bloated binaries and lowered performance because of that.  Surely, NOT
including the 'kitchensink' dependency will cut down on the size of
binaries.  Not to mention lowering the bloat on a system.
