LXer: Handy binary packages

Published at LXer:

In response to a painful article I read, I’d like to touch the topic of a handy and easy way to install programs under Linux. First and the highest accusation to the current status quo is the impossibility to install the binary package on any Linux distribution, enabling, for example, the possibility to send a file to a friend, for a similar deployment, and the possibility to do a clean uninstallation of all dependencies. The other accusation states that “Linux has become a developers’ system, and not a system for the people.
