Count me in as well. Debian has been my preferred distro since 1996 or
so. The large amount of package integration reduces management overhead
significantly. Most Linux distros and other versions of Unix have at
least partly emulated the Debian approach in recent years.
I've long argued that the integration of large numbers of packages is a
boost to security as it makes it much easier to receive security updates.
If packages are installed manually from many sources (the traditional
approach) then security management requires manually watching all of the
sources. All too often this isn't done and security suffers.
