    Absolutely! I want nothing to do with Snaps or Flaps. Give me apt only and I will be happy.

    Agreed. Part of the whole Linux draw for me is shared libraries which the current Apt provides nicely. Without that, might as well go back to Windows... desktop anyway. To be fair though, I'm not entirely against them either. Some type of universal packaging mechanism is going to be required if anyone ever expects the big software providers to bring stuff to linux. Thinking Adobe, Triple A games, and any number of other software's that people rely on that keep them using Windows.

    Snaps run in a kind of container for security and it is not allowed to launch 'unknown' applications nor malware.

    When's the last time you got a malware running APT? Me. Never.

    That ' snap provides security ... idea' seems over-extended.
    The use and anticipated use of snaps themselves created the need to confine snaps as many are 3rd party prop with no available/review-able source code.
