I do not see the "gross" insecurity. Also, to me klik is not a "damn"
thing -- it's a blessing, that lets me testdrive more bleeding edge
software faster, easier and more securely, and in a very non-intrusive
After all, why would popular distributions like Knoppix and Kanotix
with the klik client pre-installed, if it really were such an unsafe
endeavour to use?
klik mostly uses Debian package repositories to fetch its ingredient
from -- and then a klik recipe transforms the (possibly) multiple
ingredient files into one single *.cmg file (a compressed file system
image/archive), that is freely re-locate-able in user space. Runs from CD.
Runs from USB stick. Doesnt need root privileges. Leaves my system package
manager (RPM) undisturbed. Makes me happy.
The beauty of klik lies in its "1 application == 1 file" principle,
