Is there a simple way to compare all the current installed packages to the defaults (a fresh/clean installation)? So that I can see what packages I removed and which packages I manually installed?

I know Synaptics has a 'History' option, but it's nothing more than a log-file. And it also shows many packages that were installed automaticly by updating the system.

That depends on your package manager. Which one do you use? –  Jens Erat Oct 24 '11 at 1:36
