CEO Carmony said: "We're thrilled to now be in a position to offer this excellent service to desktop Linux users absolutely free. CNR really makes using desktop Linux easy, and we want everyone to have access to this quality service."

"We do not have our own package manager. We use .deb, just like apt. What we have is a different way of serving those deb's up. CNR is open sourced, so I'd say that IS improving on an existing system. "

.deb is a package format

I consider CNR to be a package manager, similar to other software we consider package managers. Nothing of what I said was negative just a hope that you guys look to improve a project instead of starting a new one.
