I've always had a small issue with this myself. Sure, they advertise "over 30,000 packages available" but at least half of those re support libraries. I don't install libraries myself (99.9% of the time), they're brought in as dependencies to run the programs I choose. IMHO libraries should be tracked under their own category and not advertised as if they were programs you can install to run.
