With Snaps, the Linux desktop will become one huge platform similar to macOS and Windows. App developers will have to write their app once and it will run on every Linux distribution.

That’s not all. Snaps also brings much-needed security to the Linux desktop as Snaps are sandboxed and containerized and don’t have system-wide access. Another advantage of Snaps is easier and quicker distribution of apps. Since developers don’t have to worry about system libraries, as soon as new versions of their apps are ready they can push them through repositories and users can install them instantly.

As someone who has been covering Snaps since the Click days, and someone who cringes every time he can’t install the latest software on his Linux box, I am very excited about cross-distribution support for Snaps.

I hope the Linux community will come together and move away from .deb and .rpm and adopt Snaps as the default package format for their apps.

Let me know what you think about it.
