Chocolatey - apt-get for windows

As a Windows user, I was quite envious of Linux/OS X tools like apt-get or brew... But not anymore!  I've just found the Chocolatey tool for Powershell which let's you easily find and install software on your Windows-powered PC.

Let's see an example:
Searching for Slack and installing afterwards

This way you can maintain apps and versions on your PC using scripts.
If you want to check if there's an upgrade to any of your programs, just write:

choco upgrade all
If you want to give it a try yourself, visit  and follow the instructions
