    WinGet is not a package manager. (never was, and probably never will be)

    this 'old' thread still nails it:

    it's just sad.

    use Chocolatey, if you can't for some reason try Scoop.

    I mean, I know its part of the joke and all, but I use Windows at work and at home when I play games and it is so much worse there than on linux. Winget and other package managers make it easier to live with though, but like, Windows users be like (on a new install):
  • Best distro to try on a VM?
    It integrates very well with WSL (each tab can be a different linux distro), and has better support for modern day terminal hacking (almost rivaling what most linux x11 terminals are capable of doing). You can install it from Chocolatey which is an alternative package manager to Microsoft's recently released package manager winget, (which they unashamedly ripped the name from the original author of appget)
