Raspberry PI OS / Debian GUI Package Managers(App Stores)
Hi, I made an account just to thank you. Tinkering with raspberries for years but just recently started using the rpi 400 as desktop replacement at home, and was difficult to find information to install gui managers for stock raspbian. Manjaro was ok, twister is still 32, and installing apps without googling or using terminal every time made a big difference for me :)

thank you for your effort, your post is awesome

Added Eget and deb-get. Many fun ways to find, download, and install packages.
