OSNews, Generic OSes Ever since I started using computers, I've been baffled by the relative clumsiness of installing applications. Whether we are talking the really old days (launching the Rambo game off a tape), the '90s (running Keen or using installers in Windows 95), or the modern days (still those installers, but now also package management and self-contained applications); it's all relatively cumbersome, and they all have their downsides. I decided to put my money where my mouth is, and come up with my idealistic, utopian method of installing, running, updating, and uninstalling applications.

Quite right. This does not seem quite that utopian - everything to do this is already there.


Oh? You do know what GoboLinux is, right?

The reason nobody has set up something quite like it, is that its not such a good idea after all.


Care to elaborate? That's four pages of detailed explanations and user scenarios you just read, and all you can counter it with is "not such a good idea"?
