Yes you are right.
But i sincerely believe that online installations from source code can take away that hurdle
from tech and non tech aware "costumers" hands. Dependency and bug checking would be
automatic... and would make distros to collaborate more closely because a particular bug or
dependency hell could have had a solution somewhere else, and no need to repeat costly cycles
or live things hanging in the wild...
The current "status quo" only stands because there is not commercial profit incentive to do it
Political Statement: right where the "ma$ters" want it to be.
