Can anyone explain what's this Flatpack mania?

It seems rather useless for anything open source but it is being pushed as "the final solution" to Linux fragmentation.


Can I boost this many times? lol

I totally agree with it.

@danyspin97 haha lol yeah I've seen it shared multiple times on here. Personally never felt the need for flatpak my distro has a great package manager by default 🤷‍♀️

@tulsi @danyspin97 I'm the same way.

I guess I see the point as an alternative to PPAs. And it's sandboxing (if made proper use of) could be useful as some additional security beyond packagers exercising our software freedoms for those not skilled enough to do so.

But I don't personally find it useful.
