In open source, there is enough choice for everyone. What I don't understand is people going off to the point of flipping out on other people's open source projects. Criticism is one thing, but keep the nerves in check, save them for closed source malware software consoles!
So you don't like eopkg, then don't use it, no need to criticize it, it's been there for a long time and will remain there for a long time, because people more skilled than you have made it because they like it and it's their perfect package manager. So it doesn't suit your use case scenario, big deal lol, just grab another package manager or another distro, it's not like you don't have the choice, there are literally dozens of ways to get software onto your linux machine.
It's really strange that nobody is criticising the single package manager in any of their proprietary software consoles, where there is no choice, where there aren't half the features of eopkg, and where the package manager works so well that you lose a day every month to fix a broken system after the single update per month if you're lucky, and where every other update is not an update but is a reset of your carefully tweaked privacy and security settings that you then have to do all over again... people really don't appreciate what luxury they are spoiled with by the open source communities that make all of this happen for free.
Solus isn't broken, it works really well, it works much better than Ubuntu or Mint for instance, which are fundamentally broken by design in order to satisfy non-logical, mostly commercial, requirements that were made by marketeers and bean counters instead of developers... now there's something to bitch about if you want to bitch about open source. Also RedHat with Gnome Shell, something to bitch about in open source. Ubuntu and Microsoft, something to bitch about. But a package manager that's been proven for years? Come on!....
