    [telegram] <Astrokamel> as an end user sudo apt get stuff is easy and a good user experience
    [telegram] <Astrokamel> nice, thx for that
    [telegram] <pizzalovingnerd> The issue with packaging is you either have to package 7 million different formats, or you have to rely on someone else to do it for you for each distro
    [telegram] <pizzalovingnerd> For the user, packages are great, but for developers, they are a nightmare
    [telegram] <Astrokamel> haha
    [telegram] <Astrokamel> you ever use magic-wormhole? i just checked and it seems they now have an apt package but originally i think they just basically said "install python then do pip install magic-wormhole". when i read that i thought to myself "linux packaging sucks so much you resort to just using pip?" lol
    [telegram] <pizzalovingnerd> Pip doesn’t work with stuff that isn’t python, but pip could be a solution
    [telegram] <Astrokamel> to be fair, python may be at least partly to blame. i love python, but if i had a complaint it's that the environment and importing system is very confusing to new users
    [telegram] <Astrokamel> sorry, wasn't suggesting using pip it just reminded me of that
    [telegram] <pizzalovingnerd> It’s ok
    [telegram] <pizzalovingnerd> I’m going to sleep now, my brother woke me up to help someone in Minecraft and I’m tired. Goodnight
    [telegram] <Astrokamel> goodnight!
