RPM/APT turned out to be poison which killed the whole thing
This is, at best, extreme historical revisionism or selective memory. What killed the whole thing was endless Gtk/Qt switching, requiring everyone to rewrite their apps time and again, thus effectively discouraging anyone from writing any. This has nothing
to do with RPM/Apt (dpkg). The hiring of an MS executive who, surprise!, went with Windows Phone had even more to do with it -- and look how well that's turning out for them! This is not 'the curse of RPM', it's 'the curse of ex-MS execs still fighting for the old school tie'.
