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."

-AMEN

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.
