Being a Linux-only user for many years now, I don’t even keep up on the never-ending flame wars of Windows vs. Linux. But sometimes a sentence or a paragraph would catch my attention in a totally unrelated article. Here is something that I think a lot of people will find surprising:
There’s an awful lot to be said about the simplicity and usefulness of installing software on Mac or Linux. In the latter case, you simply drag a file to your Applications folder, and you’re done. Linux package managers do all the heavy lifting without any user intervention. If a Linux program requires additional libraries, the package manager finds them and installs them automatically. In both instances, I can install new applications in a fraction of the time it takes to install something on Windows.
