Also other Linux distribution like RedHat, Gentoo, Suse, even MacOS X. But, Arch Linux have very simple and easy to use package manager, its called pacman. Can we use pacman on other operating systems other than Arch Linux?

And fortunately it is not impossible to do. There is a software that is made with the Python programming language that allows us to use Pacman in any UNIX Like operating system. Its called "pacapt". How it work? This tool use native package manager, but use pacman command to manage the package.
