That's really not true any more in a world built on top of Ruby,
Django, Node.js...

In most cases, the people using these technologies don't use the
distribution packages at all. They instead use 'rubgyem-install',
'easy_install/pip' and 'npm install'. The only thing they care about
from the distro (sometimes!) is having those tools present.
