Window Managers In the final years of my high school career, more concerned with going out and drinking three times a week than with actually doing anything meaningful at my supposedly posh gymnasium, I rediscovered my love for computing - a love lost during the onset of aforementioned going out and drinking. Realising I would hit university soon, I saved up 2000 guilders, ordered the parts for a brand-new computer, and thanks to this then state-of-the-art computer, old flames were rekindled. Since this pun is burning a hole in my pocket - it was an enlightening experience.

Confusing.

Select one of the myriads installers for Windows - it will work for Windows.

Select one of myriads repos (or w/e) for Linux - it will work for Linux (Debian) but not for Linux (Fedora, SuSE, Arch, Gentoo, etc).

And Linux also becomes a mess - leftover log, configuration files. Same as Windows. Doesn't work any slower, you just lose some kilobytes of space from your storage which has more than terabyte.

Central update - well duh. That isn't how Windows software works. I just cannot fathom how quality software could be upgraded via free of charge to newest version. When Ubuntu will be able to upgrade my Photoshop, Visual Studio, Sony Vegas or w/e via apt-get upgrade, then this "central" thingy argument might work. Right now - woo new updates for some random libraries that a non factor programs uses and I don't get any new features/performance. Woo exciting indeed.

How Windows is a mess again?
