that only is true for gem on linux though, because there is no system 
package management on win/osx.
Maybe it would be a good idea to make a message appear:
"Please install Gem via the package manager (apt,yum, etc)" if people 
search for Gem in deken. So that poor linux beginners don't get too 
frustrated when they follow some random tutorial by an apple/ms user how 
to install Pd/Gem.
