Hello, welcome to Linux, here are the apps you installed using Snap. Here are the apps you installed using Flatpak. Here are the apps you installed using apt. Here are the apps you inst- wait, where are you going… what’s wrong? WE WERE JUST GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER!!!

@aral Package management systems are actually a long-solved problem under #Linux. Why do we need so many of them?🤔


@datenteiler @aral Package managers and the management of them by the distributions are part of the problem. Old software. By distributions patched software. Developer of the software have no control about it. A Developer must create binaries for a wide range of distributions.

Linus talked about it in the past [1].

Because of that we need solutions like Flatpak or better stable API/ABI over all distributions.
