Fedora: The Latest (Flatpak, Wallpapers, and PHP)

  • Flatpak and Snaps aren't destined for graveyard of failed Linux tech yet
    The world of Linux has long been divided into tribes, or distros as we called them. But what actually makes a distro? The packages it uses? The people who put those packages together?

There's a change coming to the world of Linux that's potentially big enough to make us rethink what a distro is and how it works. That change is Ubuntu's Snap packages and the parallel effort dubbed Flatpaks.
