F# is the best language I've used on a managed runtime, and I really want to try Powershell. Do you know if they're any fun to use on Linux with .NET Core?I'm going straight windows with a WSL. F# + Powershell 5 + x64 + PostgreSQL with the MSN user account extensibility blows to shit any linux distro I've seen. Hands down, if you can't use powershell then you dont understand just how far ahead they are. Using simple Java Injection into XML data, you can literally send a complex pay load for chump change as the invocations happen outside the scope of the RPC message sender.
How do you keep up with security updates? How do you track down their dependencies? If uninstalling another package purges one of those dependencies, how do you spot the breakage?I always found gentoo to be complete overkill and I hate emerge - it's so slow (not talking about compile times - just calculating dependencies and shit takes forever on a weak machine).
The few packages I need to customize the configure flags for, I just compile myself.
It's also not just about need. Most packages have a ton of configuration, and if you had the choice, you may well find you'd prefer if your packages where configured in standard ways by default. That's what global use flags give you.
