""If I had to write a Linux Starter's Kit, it would be along
these lines," said Slashdot blogger Mhall119, who has actually
submitted a blueprint to Ubuntu on a related topic. (See the
blueprint and the spec.)
"Repositories would be first on Mhall119's list of what to
include in a starter kit, he told LinuxInsider.
""Windows users switching to Linux need to understand Packages
and Repositories," Mhall119 explained. "Repositories, whether APT
or YUM, are the Killer App for Linux -- they provide the greatest
single advantage over Windows from an end-user perspective.""
