After you're done reading a book, you put it down, and maybe never even read it again. After you read 100 resumes, and pick a couple to talk to the people you have to hire someone. That someone will be in your life for the forseable future. It makes the consequence of picking a bad or--even worse--a mediocre candidate a serious decision. Its much worse to hire a mediocre employee because it will take you longer to figure out they are no good, and even longer to get rid of them.

Yes, but side loading is installing another piece of software. My point was just because you can do something--such as install an app from a different repo, or install a different web browser on an OS--doesn't mean that you don't have a monopoly.
