A nice solution is this. If you integrate this in your website, like qupzilla did you offer something which both integrates with package management AND is darn easy.
It sounded “too good to be true” thus of course I went to check. I'm using latest version of LTS - Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) and the only thing I see is the following text: “Ubuntu Precise, Oneiric, Natty and Maverick users can install QupZilla by running these commands”… FAIL.
This is what I'm talking about: I need to upgrade the whole distro just to get a new app! Worse: the distro I need to install is not yet even released (and I will probably need to wait few months till it'll be tested by our IT guys). If this is not demonstration of failure of the whole model then I don't know what is.
