Bork, bork, bork.
"I don't use MS software on a Mac. Seems counter-productive to me."
Probably shouldn't use a RedHat package on ubuntu then, it's counter productive.
How is it that you've gone from not understanding why clicking on a .rpm in ubuntu would open the archive manager and also not understanding why zipped files open with the archive manager to espousing the benefits of AppArmor to Kernel security?
"With over what, 350 different "flavors" of Linux, don't you think there should be some sort of consistency among them?"
There is they distil down into several distinct trees namely....
"Should there not be some kind of consistent way to deliver applications that don't require "for Ubuntu, Press 1, for Red Hat, Press 2, for SuSE, Press 3, etc"?"
....oh you already know. Good.
If you want more interoperability between package formats and distributions, should I also expect Microsoft to ensure that .exe files run on Mac OS, RISC/os, Aegis and AIX etc?
"There shouldn't be hundreds of ways to deliver a simple application."
Would it matter as long as there still exists one way that you can click and run? I use apt-get frequently, not because I can't browse to a website and download a .deb or install from the software centre, but because it's faster if I know what I want. I'm glad that there is more than one way. It's productive and helpful.
"Yes, the Linux group has created a bunch of applications - some even worthwhile and not game-like - ..."
OK enough, obvious Troll is obvious. Have a nice day.
