What do you mean when you say they don't have a "full" set of packages?

Things don't act the same on every system

How do you know that packages are missing?
eg. in file manager I double-click a zip file and nothing happens. There is no archive manager now. But there was!

Iceweasel just shuts down on one machine, not another.

Wine doesn't open on one system anymore.

And other strange things like that.

I don't know which packages are missing! I just know that _some_ of them are. And there's the rub!

I can usually figure out how to fix the problems that come up, but that doesn't get all of them fixed.

I am tired of running around with a fly-swatter. I need a *big* can of ~raid~!!
