Is it a good idea to use Chocolatey to install/update software on a Windows 7/10 PC? Is it reliable and safe to use? Will it avoid PUPs and malware? Is the PowerShell that it uses safe?
I currently use Ninite and Patch My PC Updater, which I am very pleased with. I find SUMo is also good for checking for outdated software (but it does not support automatic updates). However, some apps like FreeFileSync and Speccy (installed, non-portable) are supported only by Chocolatey.
