    Great indeed, it used to be that everything was friendly to offline. The DOS/Windows and CD-ROM days.

    I only wish we had removable media that's sized like a smartcard or business card, like USB or SD storage but sized for handling by humans. It would also leave room to write what the card's content is about. If it was $1 and 1GB that would be great too though not very realistic yet.
    If debit or credit cards were sized like SD, SIM or micro SD I bet we would be pissed of lol

    As far as I know (and maybe not the answer you want to hear) it's because the DDK worked just fine. With that extra dev time we were able to do much more on the usability/functionality side of the OS.

    Correct, Endless does not sell to market that wants opensource support. Endless sells smooth user experience to Apple-like end users.
    See their site https://endlessos.com/

    That linux distro only wanted a good user experience.

    What happened to the similar initiative from Solus?
    AFAIK they packaged the Steam runtime, not Steam itself.

    Guess I should've said Flatpak repository or something along those lines to be more clear about it.

    Either way, thanks for the link to the steam flatpak manifests - even if it seems to be just a thin wrapper over the real packaging work they've done in other parts.
