Gone are the days of invoking "configure;make;make install" when one needs to install a single application on Linux. (well, it is still there but mostly used by hard-core geeks hehe). Now, it easy to install software via synaptic or the command-line apt-get. Fast forward some more and you now have a tool that allows you to install applications from a website! Yes, a website named Appnr.com. You just select your software and click on INSTALL and boom! It gets automatically processed, downloaded and installed!
These features and services that make Linux easier to use make it closer to being completely 100% consumer user friendly, don't you think?
