It's simplicity. If you've never used it, all you need to understand it is one command. From there, all other commands make sense:

Code:
apk add apache
apk del coreutils
apk search busybox
apk update
apk upgrade
...

A statically compiled version of the binary is available to bootstrap alpine, and it's really all you need.
It is simple, has sane default and does whatever you'd expect from a pack manager, without getting in your way. No need to learn it, read the docs or whatever.

It's similar to the new package manager on FreeBSD (I'm using it now).
Code:
pkg install
pkg add
pkg remove
pkg update
pkg upgrade
pkg clean
