Sun Should Use apt
It’s funny, when I read Tim Bray saying this:
Apt-get is just so unreasonably fucking great. Why aren’t we using it for Solaris updates?
My first reaction was “I’ve been wondering that for YEARS!” Of course, I wondered the same thing about Red Hat for nearly as long.
It’s funny how open source solutions often outdo the commercial guys–even the ones who “get” open source.
Maybe Sun should offer a Debian style package repository for Solaris? I know there are some unofficial attempts at this, but I’m talking about a full-blown supported setup.
