Chocolatey is an open source apt-get-like machine-wide package manager that you can use today, even if you don't have Windows 10.
OneGet isn't Microsoft's version of Chocolately. But there is a beta/preview Chocolatey provider that plugs into OneGet so you can use OneGet to get Chocolatey packages and install them.
Other things worth noting, even though OneGet is in the box for Windows 10
