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.

It's called utopia for a reason ... It can never exist in reality , the H factor always screw up things.

H = Humans.


I will pass on commenting on it , I wrote a 500 page in 10 minute about all it's flaws and unrealistic behaviors.

But then who am I to stop progress just upload it to a server so that we can download it and test it .. What's that it's just a theory ?

Also in Utopia there is no need to install , upgrade manually , uninstal software. Software are Free and gratis and you only pay for development or to buy a new computer and they come with 10 X 1 million terrabyte hard drive.

We don't even really have a need or use computers.
