    So i have to build for my software package for your distro, for his distro, and his and his and his.. Or maybe i could have user install flatpak, build ONE flatpak package and distribute it to everyone. Sounds easy, give me more of that. This is actually a great idea.

    There is one downside though - visually libreoffice falls out of general system look because it does not follow system theme. Be nice if looks integrated with system as well.

    P.S. yes, it is important how software looks. If you think it is not - well good for you. But you are minority so..

    Actually, the whole app bundle concept first emerged on RiscOS (two years prior to NeXTSTEP). It has since made its way to almost every OS on the planet.
    GNU/Linux itself had several implementations of it before (the ROX desktop uses one such implementation, for one).

    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
    This won't change your mind but RH, "the company", gave no directives to the gnome folks. Believe me, I WISH they had. I WISH more of upper management had an interest in GNOME so that Fedora could actually be given the mandate to fix some of the odd ux choices in GNOME.
    JMO but viewing companies as discrete entities that have long lasting desires isn't, generally, a great idea unless you have some good reason to think otherwise. Individuals, on the other hand, sure, go to town.

    All this complaining about making linux more accessible... no wonder we've been stuck at 1% of the market for decades.

    I can easily see a market for Apparmor -> SELinux profile conversion so we can standardize on one MAC archive format, that software can distribute upstream and have packaged accordingly.
    Apparmor isn't supported by so many distros. If you see a market for it, do it and show how it is done.

    LSM's cannot be stack one on top of another easily. This is a fundamental problem. There are hundreds of distros out there that apparmor will not work for and it is not the right layer for the features that flatpak exposes.
