What would make it better exactly?

From Talent500 - Talent500
"Both Chocolatey and Winget are widely regarded as stable and dependable package managers in terms of performance and dependability.
Yet, given its longer existence and larger community, Chocolatey might have access to more up-to-date packages and greater support for troubleshooting problems."

winget can install & manage Store apps, but otherwise Chocolatey has a wider repository of supported packages.

winget is terrible for scripting Windows post-setup installs, because it's an UWP app. If any app was provided in both formats, I would always choose Chocolatey because someone will fix it faster than winget.
