Need to rethink which Windows package managers to use

Posted by jpluimers on 2023/04/24

Triggered by last week’s post Need to take a look a Scoop (as a long time Chocolatey user), I need to re-think which Windows package managers to use and in what order.

Basically there are two challenges:

  • User level (scoop) versus system level (winget and chocolatey) installations
  • Availability of packages in each package manager

Since I hardly used winget, I need to get started at Windows Package Manager – Wikipedia.

A good example of unavailability is at [Wayback/Archive] Scott’s Ultimate Tools via Winget – DVLUP (which has the ID values for winget or chocolatey of [Wayback/Archive] Scott Hanselman’s 2021 Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List for Windows – Scott Hanselman’s Blog)
