    Sadly keeping your registry in sync is a feature you have to pay for 😕

    I think $96/year is kinda steep for a single user license.

    The AV scan is barely a feature if you have real-time monitoring enabled so it's praxtually only the sync and support you pay for.

    Tbe private repo feature is super niche for an individual developer.

    Or actually switch to free Linux ?

    @Teknas It's good. But still has issues with systemd. And the biggest problem is you ha e to bear powershell or cmd. Nothing beats a Linux terminal

    @Teknas damn, you sound like a jeovah witness...

    Also wsl won't help you. The whole point of chocolately is to install native Windows apps, not Linux packages.

    I liked chocolatey when it was newer. Used it for easily installing/updating a large variety of applications. But as it got bigger, their repos turned into a mess of broken, outdated, or just completely abandoned packages.
