I just wish Linux distros could take a hint from this guy. LOSE the FLUFF.

" An operating system should be just that, an operating system, upon which users can load and unload the software of their choice."


Linux distros seem to be scared to say this is 'OUR' default app. Anything different must be installed by the user from the repository.

I also love the way this guy has solved the dependency hell problem. They set it up so that all applications and required dependencies are stored in its own folder. I can see where this might add some bloat to the over all system, but you know what? I'm sitting on 250 GB of storage of which I have used 35.6gb, and if a little bloat can save me from linux dependency hell, I'd sacrifice the extra space.

I'll keep my eye on this one.
