apt vs pkg #2151
I personally don't think it is a good idea to promote
Well it's not like people who "plan on moving from Termux to actual Linux" cannot stick to apt alone. Also apt is not like a universal standard anyway, there are yum/dnf in the redhat world and the lovely pacman from Arch, only to name a few other package managers.
I was wondering, what's the difference about "pkg" and "apt" and was coming to this post (I'm new to Linux). I don't understand why pkg is the standard in Termux because it's only a wrapper for apt?
I was confused when i tried to uninstall a package with following:
$ pkg uninstall vim-python
It says "use 'apt autoremove'" to remove unused packages and i was trying like something:
Maybe it would be really better to use apt as default :)
