Why Linux distributions are so disconnected from the reality? Are they really?

By Erlang Central | Published: June 22, 2012

So much flashy title is necessary – Peter plans to emphasize several current issues with Erlang and Linux distributions (packaging, building, dependency checking, etc). Many Erlang developers blame Linux distributions and Mac OS X package management systems for having outdated Erlang versions, not providing necessary libraries, etc, etc, etc.
He’d like to enlighten his fellow Erlangers about the current not-so-bad state, tell them a story behind that (with the historical parallels), outline current issues with popular methods and tools of the software delivery process, and predict some possible future developments.
