    Changing Start Menu

    This isn't possible, unfortunately. Modern apps installed from packages (similar to Linux package managers) are enumerated and listed out of the data store. They are not "shortcut files" like shortcuts used to populate the Windows 95-Windows7 start menus

    This would be awesome. As much as newbies to Linux seem to cringe at the mention of using the terminal, for many purposes it's ideally suited to the task. Makes repetitive tasks easier and makes for very easy documentation.

    Chocalatey has been around for a long time, as has Nuget. This is basically rolling that funcationality into the OS. There are GUI frontends for both, so no command line is needed for typical operations. Only if you want to script stuff, or use more advanced parameters.

    How's the usual installation method (i.e. run the installer, click yes) not easy? What's "easier" about Linux-style installations? Three clicks instead of four?

    The Linux depositories also take care of keeping the programs updated. That's one reason I use portable apps platforms (PortableApps.com, WSCC and Liberkey) for a lot of my programs.

    Click setup.exe, click on Next, next, next, next, next, finish. Uninstall malware. Reboot.

    yum install httpd

    Linux is easier if the programs you want to install are in your Repositories.

    If they aren't and they don't include install scripts then "hilarity ensues" (and I mean in the TV Tropes sense). *Sad

    yum install httpd Well, that depends on what are you installing. This problem has nothing to do with the installer concept itself. The software I'm installing requires two- three clicks at most : setup and eula being the only steps. Or are you saying that Linux repositories guarantee the absence of malware? Or that Linux software always works properly?

    This is the reason I gave up on Linux, it is far to confusing. I feel like I am back in the 80's, having to run COBAL UNIX commands. Plus, I never know what I can use with what. Oh and those typo's what a nightmare.

    You can use most Linux distros without resort to the command shell these days but sometimes it is quicker to use it.

    Hi there

    The repositories are usually decently populated for the typical Linux distros (about 95% of typical users choose one or more of these - LMT, OPENSUSE, FEDORA, CENTOS,(K)UBUNTU).

    In any case even relative noobs can obtain a SOURCE FILE (most stuff is OPEN SOURCE) and compile it -- often it's a better method and provided you have the libraries, the gcc compiler and sometimes the kernel source installed it works most of the time.

    The advantage of using the SOURCE is that you are Distro independent. You don't even have to KNOW how to code in most instances. !!

    Cheers

    I'm in favor of this if developper can send their software without any adware included in the installation files. It will also make rookies able to search for software for their problems easily in a malware free environment. Hopefully, it can give smaller developpers a chance to get their software known.

    Of course, MS needs to be lax on what kind of software can apply to be stored but, at the same time, need to be severe so that the installer does not contain malware/adware and co. There also could be ways to encourage people that downloads software to donate or use a simple advertisement banner during the installation process that the developper earn from it, instead on relying on people being stupid enough to install the adware.

    Of course, you can always install software manually. This "repository" is only a place to make things easier, not to make Windows a closed OS.
