    Nope. You will have six instead of five.

      never said it did. i just said the sandbox software exists and is used by pms, just not for the apps without config.
      what you are pointing to has zero runtime sandboxing which is the feature I am referring to.

        If you want an OS that functions like android then make flatpackOS.

          You are confused about the goals here. Flatpak has nothing to do with android.

              not directly flatpak, but rancherOS is a pid 1 docker, where ALL apps run inside docker containers, so each app can be isolated from the next one.

              My main issue with flatpak is coming from gnome devs... i don't trust then, as i don't trust systemd, pulseaudio devs... Everytime i see something coming from oracle, redhat, apple or microsoft, i step back and try to see the bigger picture... not that everything they do is bad, but they fucked up the final user several times already to improve their business, so i don't trust then

                Many many different operating systems have sandboxing. It isn't something android specific and flatpak sandboxing doesn't work like android at all.

                  How are running the Linux kernel then? It is driven primarily by commercial organizations these days.

                    Does it have 1 or 2 pms? Now that i think about it you need two. One for the sandboxed apps and one that manages system tools and libraries. Otherwise htop for example would not work sandboxed.

                      Is it possible to run flatpack apps inside flatpack sandboxed apps? Steam could use something like docker also.
