wastingtimewithforums, package management is a legit reason on why Linux is better. One of my biggest pet peeves about Windows is how many apps essentially roll their own package management, and you have multiple "software updaters" running and bothering you. It's f*cking annoying. Apple and Adobe are especially bad, but it's not the point. It's not the right way of doing software lifecycle management. It's completely idiotic actually.
If W10 solves this it would be a huge boon to Windows. How someone can complain about package management I don't understand. Even just having apt-get in Windows would be a huge advancement. But it even seems that Microsoft is going beyond copying apt-get. Microsoft is fixing a lot of the problems with mainstream Linux's package management. It's possible to break a system with a poorly designed RPM or DEB package. I've had it happen before. It's a fundamental design flaw in how these package systems work that is not easy to correct. They use full root to do their installation. I don't see how the same is possible with APPX. This whole APPX virtual FS thing looks more like NixOS then Ubuntu apt-get.
