The Unix philosophy was always KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid. It started that way in Linux too.

Windows can never, ever be described as having that philosophy.

The tools (even today when systemd is the final nail in the coffin of that philosophy) to detect an APT remain far simpler for Linux than Windows.
