No, I like having the programs available in a storage area that I can pull from when I need it.
And I want to install the programs WHEN I want, WHERE I want, and HaikuDepot does not let you do that!.
Try your suggestion. Disconnect your internet then try dropping a hpkg into the right folder, for 70% of the programs the system will choke because it can not get the dependencies.
Look, I go to the cabin up north - No internet.
I am going to Cuba at the end of the month, do not even suggest using that slow internet.
I go on cruises later this year, not only is the internet slow, it is EXPENSIVE!
I want the ability to download all files of programs I would like to try out, and be able to add and remove them without needing internet for them.
