Re:Bad Idea

You are missing the point. The thread started with someone thought they couldn't share libraries because they were in different directories and there fore you had to have multiple copies/versions of each library (this is the way I understood the first post).

Then I replied that one doesn't _need_ to have this (multiple version) but one _could_ have this. There was no arguing that only one version of a library was supported, rather that GoboLinux actually supports multiple versions better than most other distros out there (it does).

What I meant in my last reply was that it's actually possible to only have one version of library installed at any one time on GoboLinux (if one install a new version of a library it's "only" needed to recompile all apps depending on that library and then remove the old one), but then I didn't care about API incompability (which is another issue).
