    You write a Hello World program and it is 45 bytes, then you package it with Snap or Flatpak and then it is half a gigabyte.

      native linux hello world is even larger when you add all linux to it(like you stupidly added shared flatpak runtime)

        Still smaller than Electron-based monsters.

          I wish flatpakless people continuing fun with wrong libraries. Just half a year ago, I had various problems because of Fedora shipping a new glibc and some programs which weren't compatible back then.

            Germany had experience with "Leaders". And we all know how it ended. Same valid for many other Leaders who tried Leading
            Now back to my old peasant package manager
            patato.rpm
            onion.deb
            carrots.tgz

              That's unlikely.

                Then you notice you installed it on a 500GB SSD and used barely 1/1000th of the available space.

                  that's 100%, because flatpak shared runtime is subset of native linux(if you try to be smart and create smaller linux, then you can be even smarter and create smaller flatpak runtime)

                    lol, your example shows that you are fucked up already. you have to use 3 different distros for 3 different apps, because their devs can't produce packages for every distro on earth. while flatpaks work on any distro
