comment How to make wget faster or multithreading?
I am wondering if there is a way, maybe via alias and wrapper to use axel when is available instead of curl or wget, unless there is more than one parameter to the command line.

comment Why are apt-get repositories hardcoded to a specific release?
@saiarcot895 seems to indicate what I was looking for, being able to use a placeholder inside the .list files so you could stay on "current" release and not have to patch them each time you upgrade.

You are right that I asked why, not as in how to fix it. I was I was looking more to a link to feature request. From the technical point of view it should be possible to make it work smart (as in detecting matching releases, so you would not have to fix them manually).

It seems that it does not really work as expected. I was looking to a smart solution that doesn't work only with official repositories. If apt would be able to detect releases from remove repository, it could pick the best option. it can even have a configurable preference.

comment Are there any plans to simplify console service management on Ubuntu?
@AndreaLazzarotto quite happy to see that I am not the only one seeing the same problem. I guess for the same of implementing the next big thing some devs fail to see the power of simplicity and the importance of hiding the complexity. I don't give a **** if this is an old/new stype service, as an user I should be able to control all services using an easy interface. The irony is that here Microsoft made some good progress, they do have a pretty good command line utility for that.
