"Linux will never succeed on the desktop until..."
You mean Linux have succeeded on desktop? News to me.
So where are these people now who espouse that the "right" way to do software distribution is to have users find an "easy to download and install package" on the project website?
It's still an important facet of the OS. But the question is less about the "random site" but more about "random developer". iOS succeeds despite the fact that officially you can install apps only from one repository, but the important fact is that apps in said repository are placed by the developers themselves, not by some packagers who may delay delivery for years (and will reject closed-source apps out of hand).
