Repositories are great, but they are horrible if they are the one and only thing. Developers care more about their software than distros do, and maintainters will never be able to honor the original care the developers put into the user experience.
Linux will never succeed if it keeps believing that leaving voids for maintainers is higher quality than giving the developers a clear pathway to delivering the experience they want to create. Maintainers are lovely people but they aren't the creators. A distro should not try to take the responsibility of a huge and growing third party catalog. There will never be enough people.
I'm so impatient, and I wish i could do more, but I have not enough time to be an animator as it is. i definitely don't have time to learn and practice code (except scripting stuff useful in animation). I think that so much in Linux is great and if they could just make installing and using software (the main point of an OS) easy and stress-free... everything else would click and the floodgates of greatness would open...
