Package Managers #lca2017

edit: This got written up as an article on, a huge thank you to Jonathan Corbet for that!

I have also been thinking about this presentation a lot in the years following - the package management problem remains unsolved and it's still something I wrestle with.

Lately I actually took the plunge and installed NixOS on two of my machines. It's weird and clunky in some ways, but at the same time it's a delight.


These are some other relevant talks from lca2017.
