    Ubuntu is trying to appear to us not to be useless.

    Or institutional disconnect between marketing and engineering of a large enough company

    It's Canomical

    I also like Schnapps but I wouldn't ever combine that with using Ubuntu.

    I like snaps, without them I would probably still be using Ubuntu.

    • Packaging moves from distros to upstream
      • 10+ distros, each packaging XXX, inventing the wheel 10+ times
      • So let upstream, XXX.org, snap it, distros take the Snap
      • Distro version released, app updates continue from upstream

    Best way to improve a Snap : replace by a Flatpak.
