Looks interesting but any specific reason one should prefer Freshbuild over any of the above installers?

Freshbuild can install all three repo managers at once in addition to executing them in a set sequence.

Useful feature but multiple managers could mess up app installs or cause interference with one another.

True, but not all apps are in more than one of these repositories, especially the stuff in scoop.

Scoop has more dev tools + an extras bucket for non-dev stuff (Skype, Slack etc..) but some apps are either missing or a bit dated.

Overall very promising, thanks for the info
