Flathub as the centralized repository for serving Flatpak sandboxed Linux applications crossed the threshold this weekend of serving more than two billion downloads.

Flathub continues as the de facto repository for obtaining packages in Flatpak format from a variety of software vendors. Flatpak as a whole has been a phenomenal success for the Linux desktop and continues proving as a great alternative to the likes of Snaps and AppImage.

Flathub 2+ billion downloads

As of writing flathub.org/statistics is now reporting as having served more than 2,002,793,783 downloads. Those two billion plus downloads are from more than 2,600 apps since 2018. Games and utilities continue to be the most popular categories for Flathub apps.

Unfortunately there are no public Snapcraft statistics for showing in comparison for showing the default Snaps repository.
