Editorial states: "Microsoft (or a really smart ISV) should build a full application manager for Windows, similar to what most Linux distributions do today." Most Windows applications come with their own distinctive updating mechanism (much like Mac OS X), instead of having a centralised updating location like most Linux distributions offer. While it certainly wouldn't be harmful for Windows to gain such a feature - the question remains: isn't it time we rethink program installation and management altogether?

You can't rely on bsdstats to compare the various BSDs as PC-BSD has bsdstats enabled by default.
Or do you think that, as example, there are less than 6000 boxes running FreeBSD or just 5 in Canada running OpenBSD?
