OneGet will come with all Windows 10 installs, meaning that developers can now make use of this functionality as they know every new install will have this feature.

If you are not familiar with package managers, it's a tool that makes installing, updating and locating the install software much easier for developers. With the use of trusted repositories, every time a package is updated on the repository, your machine can be updated as well.

Well now that is just awesome.

I long for the day when Microsoft's programs and everything else gets updated in one interface. One of the many reasons that linux is so great.

It will be good if it also gets rid of all of those auto-update services (I purge most of those things).

I have a VM with multiple browsers installed (for web site testing).

I despise Chrome.
It takes at least 10 minutes for the VM to stabilise after boot up, mostly due to Chrome trying to update.
Chrome also triggers multiple UAC prompts (invisible background updates my a**)!

Once it finishes, Opera starts.
Even though it is the new Chrome-based version, it doesn't trigger a storm of UAC prompts.

Thats weird. Something must be wrong with your chrome then, mine never does that or has that issue.

Things like that already exists for quite some time:

I have my doubts about this one, using only though command line will probably mean that most users will not even know that exist, or what can they do with it. A GUI is a must these days.

Same policy here. Only I decide when to risk an update. Firewalls do wonders here, blocking phone-home autoupdaters.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was broken.

If it wasn't so popular (for some unknown reason) I would never have installed it.

IMO, almost all browsers seem to be getting worse with each new update.
Bizarrely enough, the exception is IE.

Sounds very much like the Linux sudo-apt-get-update functionality. Smart.

Wouldn't that program violate the GPL?

If you are talking about the chromes operating system ignore my comment.
If you are using Windows Operating system in a virtual machine. Check the Windows task scheduler in the virtual machine for the Google Chrome update. There should be a setting there to disable the UAC from prompting.

Although OneGet is aimed at developers, I doubt Microsoft would just leave it at the PowerShell level for consumers. I'm not an expert or anything, but is there technically anything stopping them from making a GUI for OneGet just because it's based on PowerShell commands?

Perhaps this might be a long awaited update to Windows Update, or even the Store, since it now features desktop apps as well...

I agree that purging auto updaters is a MUST! Why can't apps just have it integrated instead, and just check for updates on startup, like most NORMAL applications!?
