Flipping the Linux switch: Package management 101 (Download Squad)

Jan 9th 2008 3:26AM I'd like to see Linux become more user friendly.

When I first started playing with SUSE about a year and a half ago I didn't have the slightest clue about packages. I soon learned the difference between tar's and rpms etc and repositories & dependencies. Quite frankly for an average user I can see how these things get overwhelming and can cause confusion to the average joe smoe.

So I'd have to agree that linux, as of now, is still a geeks playground. I like having access to my consoles whenever I need them but the average user isn't going to even know how to user anything other then a familiar GUI.

With that being said I love linux but I'vebeen stuck in Server 03 lately trying to get my MCSA. Soon I'll return to my precious linux client, soon.
