For Linux there's Text Pieces which does a similar job. Idk about Mac but I'd expect some similar tool to exist too.

Now, this is the hardest bit, most of us are too poor to afford the latest and greatest tech and other new stuffs, but things which we can do, like installing a new program (Microsoft PowerToys, Windows Terminal and Windows Package Manager (Winget)) testing new softwares (Windows Insider Program, Apple Public Beta Program) are some ways to make us the early birds or early adopters without spending our precious Rupees.
The amount of times I have accidentally done this...

Microsoft failed to rotate certificates for winget CDN on time
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Feb 2023
We updated the certificate about an hour before this post. It takes 6 - 8 hours for the certificate to fully propagate.2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Feb 2023
We're working on renewing the certificate. It looks like this is the first report: https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli/issues/2956
What is a recommended way to install Windows Terminal (and maybe winget) in LTSC?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/Windows10LTSC | 9 Feb 2023
2) Get winget from microsoft/winget-cli and install it manually then install Windows Terminal with it. The downside is no updates for winget itself unless you download a new version by hand.

This is a frontend for various Windows package managers, it does not do package management itself. You would have to investigate the specific package manager you want to use. In this case, it's using (among others) Winget which is Microsoft's package manager offering (which is fairly new, I think).

This is finally the Windows experience that developers wanted. I thought that OneGet (PackageManagement) was going to be the way almost a decade ago, but that fizzled out. The guy that wrote that one seems to be totally on board with this though: https://github.com/microsoft/winget-cli/discussions/186.
I think that the guy that wrote OneGet had it mostly right, but it seems (as a layman who knows nothing about Microsoft) that he simply did not have the political power to make it actually get picked up by the higher ups at Microsoft and that someone else did which is why it took an extra half-decade to actually happen.
I do wonder what would have happened in my career had OneGet actually taken off . Previously I used to work exclusively on Windows, and I now work exclusively on non-Windows machines. At the time that I switched developer experience was one of my primary frustrations - and lack of a proper Homebrew/apt/yum like experience on Windows was a non-insignificant part of that. Chocolatey was OK at the time, but paled in comparison to its MacOS and Linux equivalents.
