 Microsoft could adopt the same model and help their Windows users stay much safer as the ability to be scammed with fake executables would be much less.

In the Linux world there are package managers. These are programs that allow you to easily install software. You search for the software that you are looking for, click a box, and install. It’s that easy. All the software in these packages are maintained by a group of people. They individually test each piece of software and add in the upgraded free psn codes versions of this software into what is called the repositories which is just all the installation packages. It’s a fairly simple system because everything is safe and works.

What is Windows adopted a package manager system? Would Windows be safer?

One of the big problems that Windows users face is opening executable files and setup files that are fake. At times it looks like the executable is a real file but in fact it’s a virus, Trojan, or malware. It’s easy to be tricked with fake files downloading from the internet or attached to email. The concept of less than average users constantly infecting their computers is a reality.

Microsoft could adopt a package management system. Think of this like a big “Apps Store” if it’s hard to visualize. If you wanted a certain software, instead of getting fake files on the internet that are malicious, you can get them from trust and tested software that Microsoft tests to be sure it’s safe. With as many problems that Windows has had with this, it’s a wonder that a system like that has not be implemented before. It would also give Microsoft a platform to sell their other utilities that they offer.
