Linux One of the things I love about software, particularly open source software, is innovation can come from anywhere. Sometimes it appears out of large tech companies such as Red Hat, IBM or Sun and other times it can come from one person writing code on a second hand computer in their college dorm. Software is really the expression of ideas and concepts, which can come from anyone. So I really enjoy seeing small open source projects try new things. Some will succeed and be adopted and some will fade away, but the amazing thing is to see people put their idea out there and present it to the world. Which is why I was thrilled when a few people directed me to Paldo and suggested it was worth a look.

I've tried Paldo recently.

Upkg is interesting in that it parses XML spec files and generates bash install scripts from it.

The problem is that its written in Mono and therefore extremely slow even on my Core i7. Upkg also lacks many features found in other package management systems, such as the ability to restrict certain packages from upgrading.
