@joeyh has an interesting postt about "The Futures of Linux Distributions": joeyh.name/blog/entry/futures_ and which references another good one by @liw

IMO one reason we've seen such a gulf between language package managers and distro package managers is that many traditional distros haven't had a "local development environment" option. So you have to turn to you language's tooling for that.

Guix and Nix have development environment modes, but maybe it's too late?

@cwebber @liw I appreciated that comment, but the actual redeeming part of the HN thread is two responses to a "why not just container" comment:

1. You're describing Nix.
2. You're describing Windows.

LOL

(They're actually describing lithification, that concept of r0ml's needs more attention.)
