Home Discussion Discuss: Media Edition 1.0.4 Beta 2 has been released now

  • dbCBUtmskhzbRJDavin October 26, 2012 at 11:38 PM

    Installing software on Linux is acaltluy a ton simpler (assuming it's in the repositories, slax's Modules are probably these). On most distributions, installing/uninstalling software involves nothing more than checking/unchecking a box next to its name in the package manager. Admittedly, if you want something that's not in the repositories, then it does get very complicated, but that's not due to Linux as a system, but rather the choice of software developers for Linux not to package their programs as a .deb or .rpm.Those that do chose to turn their apps into .deb's or .rpm's make installing exactly as simple as Windows, you download and double click the file, and it does the rest for you.The inherent advantage to Linux's method is that updates can be found for every single piece of software on your computer at once, and installed automatically and without version-clashing errors every time. Also, uninstalling is complete and dependencies are (unless you're in Gentoo) automatically taken care of. The disadvantage is that it's unusual for Windows folks, and has the inherent problem that if your computer loses power during an update or an install, anything that was being worked on is permanently broken.But hey, it's how it is, I personally prefer it.
