    So, tell me what you want, what you really really want. I wanna, I wanna ... apps. To wit, you GET this review of winget, a command-line interface for Windows Package Manager, covering setup, basic functionality and options, installation of different software like Steam, VLC and GIMP, overall functionality and user experience, some problems with multiple versions and UAC prompts, and more. Enjoy.
