RE: The new Apple announcements

Richard

Well, all applications available via apt-get, synaptic and the client interface in ubuntu are maintained by Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu.

Besides that, it's terribly simple to install applications via RPM's (like Apple's DMG's) or just to build them.

Furthermore, there's no constraint or anything on applications that you can install with the application manager. If you like a certain application, just contact Canonical, and they'll see to it that it becomes compatible (sometimes there are small incompatibilies with other distributions) and that you can easily install it.

It's gorgeous when implemented correctly, and personally, I doubt that Apple will succeed. Unfortunately...
