  1. For a joke I used Alien for all App's (as meany as I could manually install) on a fresh Ubuntu Gnome install and lets just say in the end the system broke to the point where after doing a system update it no longer booted and chucked out errors in reference to a few of the Alien installed programs even before that the system started bugging out I think dependencies broke over time lol
