    It’s like you run a curl command in the command line to install Homebrew, you also run a ruby and curl command to uninstall Homebrew from your Mac.

    This command works on my Mac:

    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/uninstall)"

    It’s a good idea to use Linuxbrew to keep your command line tools up-to-date on an LTS distro. It’s also useful to get tools in a server where you don’t have root privilege.

    Everything has it’s pros and cons. For Linuxbrew, it’s BSD based. Secondly, the developer is very conservative about some packages, like openssl 1.0 is used in linuxbrew by default, which means curl, nghttp2 installed by linuxbrew don’t support TLS 1.3. I think openssl in most Linux distros is on branch 1.1.

    If you’re not an admin on the machine, Linuxbrew may be the best choice. If you are an admin on the machine and only wanna keep tools up-to-date. You should switch to a non-LTS distro, or a rolling distro.

    I don’t get it. I already have all that I need in the Open Source communities. Why would I need anything from Apple? I guess I’m just not getting or understanding this one?….
