That's all true; however, there needs to be something analogous to App
Manager - or maybe an extension - for those kinds of things. At least
some kind of easily accessible guide or list on the tablet itself as
to what packages are available and a command line for a generic
install. As it is, it can be very difficult to track down what
packages are needed to accomplish a given goal.
