Restoring package selections

I have to say I just love apt-get way of package management. Especially that you can just save the list of packages you have installed

dpkg --get-selections > pakete.log

and with just a few commands bring your system (or another machine) to the same state again.

dpkg --set-selections < pakete.log
dselect update
dselect install

Also note that it might be useful to copy your /etc/apt/sources.list
