    Chocolatey and OneGet

    I just read this article:
    http://www.howtogeek.com/200334/wind...-named-oneget/

    Is this "OneGet" feature still available in Windows 10? I'd love to see Windows Secrets do a story on it.

    Also, is anyone out there using Chocolatey? Wondering if I should add it to my system. As a Linux/UNIX geek, I wonder if I'd have fun with it.

    Thanks!

    Per the HTG article OneGet was renamed PackageManagement in the official Win10 release. Use the PowerShell "help" commands to get details on it.

    I have used Chocolatey on two computers. It was quite handy when I built the last one, as it allowed me to quickly install the software that I was using on my older computer. As I recall, it failed to install a couple of applications, but the others were effortless.

    Sounds good. I'll give Chocolatey a look and look at the new PackageManagement feature in PowerShell. Thanks for the info!
