    Upstart existed and worked great for quite a few years SUSE and Ubuntu, two of the top distros used that, till something better came up.
    Yes and it was used in RHEL and ChromeOS as well.

    I like to think Canonical as a company that may not have success with it's side projects but always dared to do things that no one in the free software community had the resources or motivation for.
    Couldn't have said it better myself.

      Yes they have, it's the same old story and I don't have the time to repeat the same things all over again for people like you that won't listen.

        Flatpak formerly known as xdg-app pre-dates Snap.

          Snap initial release was December 2014. Xdg-app initial release was in September 2015. But Snap was a redesign of Canonical's previous system, Click, which was available in 2010, I believe. The purpose of the redesign was to turn Snap into a more general purpose package management solution, making it incomparable to FlatPak, since FlatPak doesn't support the core features of the Snap system. If you do want to compare the FlatPak features, then you should compare to Click, which as I said is many years older than xdg-app.

              i thought it has a lot missing features
              Now I can select BSSID field in NetworkManager with iwd backend and it seems to work (it was remembering the bssid of a device that does not exist anymore and it didn't want to connect to the network until I changed that field).
              I don't know if this is due to iwd or NetworkManager though
