LXer: Windows needs a Linux package manager

Published at LXer:

From the "lessons Microsoft should learn from open source" files: Windows users have a real problem when it comes to updates. Sure they have Microsoft Update and certainly many applications include their own update mechanisms. Yet despite that, there seems to be a problem with Windows users actually updating. Time for them to get a real package manager?
