    AppImage is so much better in every way.
    Snap pollutes the whole system, and even makes boot slower. Argh!

      It is built from the ground up, yes. If your requirement is that you must only be allowed to use a technology once it has passed internal quality control, then you would be better off using a system like Windows or Mac OS.

What you _could_ say, as a battle hardened soldier of the revolution, and feel very strong and proud, is that it's not platform independent because it directly depends on the Linux Kernel, so it doesn't invite BSD. But there is no way for you to say that because a packaging format is based on the Linux Kernel and because it is copyleft rather than permissive, it is anti-Linux.
        It's more simple than that: snaps just suck in every possible way. How many times Canonical has to repeat their mistakes? Upstart, Mir, Unity (this one was good, but they dropped it, so it doesn't matter) and now snaps.

          If you're uncivilized POS that has to sign CoC to behave in civilized way, then it's definitely for you.

            That's it, no more Ubuntu on my HW. Ubuntu used to be great, yet sadly, all this BS about forcing snap to user's face, abandoning working and well established Debian components (netinstall replaced by /dev/null, ...), it is time to move away. Farewell Canonical...

              Snaps are really great, as was Upstart. Mir is still a great product that is doing well.

                Lol. As always: Snap gets mentioned and the trolls pop up an the flaming starts. No matter what the relevance actually is (in this case we are talking about an empty repo that is being "replaced".) Michael is for sure pleased for all that traffic.

                  AppImage is better than Snap the same way Spotify is better than Firefox.

                    If it is to replace an empty repository, I donĀ“t see the problem.
                    Then, if you have to pick the lesser of 2 evils, you'll definitely go for snaps (vs flatpaks).
                    Makes sense to me, as long as no (regular) software is forced to me as a snap.

                      drakonas777 Lots of Red Hat paid trolls on Phoronix (a bit like Russian infiltrators) spewing nonsense and trying to discredit other companies.
