This is Manjaro XFCE 18.1.0 RC5.
- Three entirely separate and independent means of software distribution supported by default at the same time: .pkg.tar.xz packages (whether from repos or AUR), Snap and Flatpak. We now can't assume that a user got the program from repos or AUR; we have to take into account that someone may have got it with Snap or Flatpak too, and that maybe the user have no clue what mean of software distribution he actually used. Have fun troubleshooting.
- Two programs to manage software according to the menu, with more or less similar name and description in the menu. What should I use?;
- Krita appears three times. Which one should I take? How should I know what I am supposed to choose?
- Both program used to manage software offers to do updates. Which one should I use to maintain my system? Are they totally equivalent or not? Will each of them update absolutely everything on my system (OS, libraries, applications...) or not?
How newcomers are supposed to familiarize with this and not get totally confused? Already on Windows 10, it was a bit more complicated with the addition of the Windows store, although it is such a joke that it is often pretty much not taken into account that much.
But now, we have made it even more messy, complicated and confusing than Windows 10. Isn't that beautiful?
