    Success? If it was a success, then there wouldn't be something new. I've never had the feeling that someone actually used it. Maybe from the entire userbase only 1-2%. The rest probably went Workstation, Xfce4 or netinstall something.

    It's weird to standardize the naming for some of the desktops but not others. I realize Silverblue and Kinoite are the big two, but they should have taken the opportunity to rename them to Fedora Workstation Atomic and Fedora KDE Atomic.

    That's great news and something I've been wishing were the case ever since Kinoite first came out.
    Using a gazillion random names for, more or less, the exact same base system + flavor-specific libs and (almost no) system apps makes no sense whatsoever.

    Not only did the original naming introduce pointless confusion over the nature of each individual project, but it also made querying for common issues and workarounds excessively harder over nothing.
    And no, coming up with a natural object suffix for Fedora, that happens to start with the same letter as your desktop, absolutely doesn't make up for it.

    So for personal clarification....is Canonical's Ubuntu Core their version of an immutable OS built around Snaps even down to snapping the kernel, as opposed to however Red Hat is engineering Atomic Desktops ?

    And is this the future of Linux desktops going forward ? Seems a lot like ChromeOS-ification of Linux. Not saying that's a good or bad thing. Just observing.

    Good. Actual, sensical naming. "Silverblue Kinoite" tells you nothing about it or why you should involve yourself with it. "Atomic KDE Desktop" gets the point across without sounding terrible.
