Microsoft has officially launched “Winget”, aka the Windows Package
Unfortunately, it’s run into a bit of a snag: anybody can submit
packages to be included in the repo willy-nilly, leading to problems
like duplicates, bad links and other misbehaviour.
“What is wrong with this picture?” as they say: Look at any of the
common Linux distros, and you will see that every package has an
official maintainer who will take responsibility for its quality,
handling of bug reports, updating from upstream and so on. Nobody can
simply submit a package to be included and then forget about it. There
is a proper QA system.
