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.

but in the end it seems like it would basically be OSX + a centralized system, which isn't exactly revolutionary. The whole thing with BFS live queries could be handled exactly the same with the centralized system using a database, you're just moving the relation management from the db into the native filesystem.
