How To Install VirtualBox 5.0 In Ubuntu/Linux Mint Or Other Derivatives

Is the author of this article really just reaching users how to use dpkg? Why not just double click the package file? Debian and derivatives have long had gdeb or other similar software that allows graphical installation.
The article is so inconsequential, that I can’t help question the author’s motives for writing it.

It’s very strange that OSnews is linking to this article because it has an utterly pointless existence on the Web. It is basically saying “to install VirtualBox, you download it from the VirtualBox Web site and run an install command”. Even Windows users know how to do this, so quite why Linux Mint users need hand-holding to such a basic level is beyond me.
I really doubt that Thom would ever link to such a trivial and lightweight article as this…
