These projects truly are a testament to the true flexibility and power of apt-get, even within a Windows context. Side efforts, such as an ncurses based implementation of Mac OS X's Expose feature for dealing with multiple apt-get sessions, a SIMD/MMX accelerated apt-get, interplanetary control software with apt-get, and last but not least, a dselect-based implementation of iTunes.
