Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "After looking around and playing with Ubuntu 7, it's safe to say that the features, ease of use and stability of this distro may be enough to edge Linux desktops into corporate offices. Given that Ubuntu supports a VMWare-like environment, you can bet that Ubuntu will crop up in many test labs as well." More at EarthWeb.

However, there are other implementation of self-contained packages like Apple do. For example there is Klik (http://klik.atekon.de/), wich will do this. I've never encountered any distro wich uses this as defualt, though. Other than that there's PC BSD, wich uses PBI in a similar manner. With PBI one can also update all apps in a go similar to the way apt does on Debian/Ubuntu.


Hey, that seems to be really cool! Is it actually working? Do distros know about it?

Yup, Klik has been around for at least a couple of years. I believe it works with all Debian based distros. It's easy enough, especially after you've set it up. I tried it once on Ubuntu and once on Mepis (before they were Ubuntu based) and it worked fine.

Anyway, this doesn't need explanation, just try it, it's easy!:)
