    88 * Almost all software lives in packages and is only virtually extracted. The virtually extracted package content is read-only.
    9  * Software (i.e. packages) can be installed via the command line package manager `pkgman` -- `pkgman search/install/remove/update ...` searches for, installs, removes, and updates packages respectively. Packages can also be installed manually by moving (not copying) them to the respective "packages" subdirectory in "/boot/system", "/boot/common", or "/boot/home/config".
     9 * Software (i.e. packages) can be installed via the command line package manager `pkgman` -- `pkgman search/install/uninstall/update ...` searches for, installs, uninstalls, and updates packages respectively. Packages can also be installed manually by moving (not copying) them to the respective "packages" subdirectory in "/boot/system", "/boot/common", or "/boot/home/config".
    1010 * The directory layout has changed and many directories have become read-only. Cf. [wiki:PackageManagement/DirectoryStructure DirectoryStructure] for details.
    1111 * The Deskbar menu works differently. It uses a new virtual directory Tracker/Deskbar feature to generate its content. Any package can contribute Deskbar menu entries by including respective symlinks in "data/deskbar/menu". The virtual directory merges the respective directories from all installation locations plus the user settings directory "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu". That means whenever a package is installed/removed its Desbar menu entries will be added/removed automatically. The user settings directory allows the user to add new entries manually. The whole behavior can be changed by overriding the default virtual directory. Before using the default virtual directory "/boot/system/data/deskbar/menu_entries" Deskbar first looks for "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu_entries". This can be a virtual directory as well, or a regular directory, or a symlink to either. E.g. making it a symlink to the "menu" directory will cause Deskbar to use only the contents of that directory, i.e. the menu contents is completely user-defined.
