Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Statically linked packages
Using statically liked packages allows each package to contain all of the dependencies it needs, this way the user just installs to then use the app. No muss no fuss.
Pro Very easy and fast
Installing and removing packages is very easy, fast and painless thanks to using binary installs.
Con Lacks man files for installed packages
The man files for tools are not installed with the binaries.
Con Not sandboxed
Binaries go directly to /usr/bin, so they are not sandboxed.
Con Not many packages
Although Rudix is in development since 2005, there's a distinct lack of packages available. This limits the usefulness of the package manager for the user.
