Do you use it? Do you like it? Dislike it? How do you think it compares to the native package manager, or other cross-distro package managers like Snap or Flatpak?

used it before, can be used to install things without admin privileges. but very time and space consuming.

Why should I use some ruby program to manage packages instead of a compiled tool?

Confession: When I first switched to Linux from MacOS, I genuinely didn’t realize that brew on MacOS was supposed to recreate apt (or other package managers). I thought homebrew on Linux was a knock off of Homebrew on MacOS

Didn’t ever feel like using it.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
