Possible reasons:
1) yaourt's interface has an easier to read output
2) yaourt shows it when a package is outdated (maybe you can show this with some configuration in packer as well, but I didn't bother)
3) yaourt is faster
Code: [Select]
time packer -Ss dropbox
real 0m0.951s
user 0m0.510s
sys 0m0.060s

time yaourt -Ss dropbox
real 0m0.671s
user 0m0.283s
sys 0m0.047s

And yaourt is still maintained, packer is not.

Packer does have a maintainer. That doesn't necessarily mean it should be used, though.

That does just means that the package does have a maintainer. But i guess it´s not necessary to dig any furter, is it ?

handy has been keeping an eye on the status of packer. I have it installed but, probably won't use it until handy thinks it's OK. With yaourt, pacmanxg4, pacman-GUI, ..., there isn't much impetus to use packer anyway. And as Culinax has shown, yaourt seems to be faster.

I noticed that alot of Arch users seem to prefer packer over yaourt... Also I've seen more than a few comments saying that packer was more safe... Not sure why, but i'm not too concerned since yaourt has been doing it's just well enough for me thus far.
