    Hi,

     

    Thanks a lot for this great comment! I must say it is rare to read such insightful blog posts and this is why I wanted to answer you on the various points you mentionned.

     

    1/ Are we going to address the issues you raised in the future? Of course! You are a bit tough with us on this point. Just to give you a brief history of allmyapps, we started hacking on it in December 2008, released a very limited first version (Linux only) in january. Then we regularly released a new version each month (~) and the first windows version was released september 15th this year. Be sure we are working like crazy to satisfy all of you guys Smiley

     

    2/ Not enough applications listed? This is true but we're improving. We launched with about 150 apps listed and we will be rolling out new updated apps very soon. Stay tuned on this.

     

    3/ Are commercial apps going to be listed? Definitely. We already signed distribution agreements with major editors and we are currently integrating their apps in allmyapps. We chose our name because we want to provide a central place where people will be able to find all their apps! Obviously, the ones you cited (Photoshop & MS Office) won't be here tomorrow as Adobe and Microsoft are a bit picky when it comes to proposing a downloadable version of their apps... but anyway, we'll have them in the long run Smiley

     

    Thank you for this comment, be sure we do our best to provide you with the best service on allmyapps.com !

    Cheers,

    emerge -eav @world @system

     

    Command for Gentoo/Portage to recompile your entire system - toolchain, all libs & packages - everything but the kernel. If you're re-installing you can save the "world" database of installed packages, then issue the same command to bring the system essentially back into the same state by pulling in all dependencies, compiling, and installing.

     

    Unfortunately thats something Windows will never be able to do, but similarly just about every platform has trouble with making a good unified way of installing software using 3rd party installers. Also proprietary software, and software which requires the user to manually accept a license can't be fully automated or easily downloaded from a central repository. Gentoo for instance works around this problem with "fetch restrictions" requiring manually downloading tarballs or inserting the install media. Windows does about as good of a job in that sense by keeping track of what you have installed via a front-end to 3rd party uninstallers (add/remove programs). Windows still lacks the ability to "know" how to install everything with a system of scripts. It also doesn't install programs to the system from a sandbox and keep a database of the deltas in order to keep track of whats installed on the level of individual files mapped to a respective package. That is something I don't see changing any time soon.
