Recently, I posted a piece (http://www.jonobacon.com/2017/07/13/consolidating-linux-desktop-app-story-idea/) about distributions consolidating around a consistent app store. In it I mentioned flatpak as a component and some people wondered why I didn't recommend snappy, particularly due to my Canonical heritage.

To be clear (and to clear up my in-articulation): I am a fan of both snappy and flatpak, and to be frank, my main interest in my post was the notion of a consolidated app store platform as opposed to what are the specific individual components are in that platform. Thus, don't read my suggestion of flatpak as any criticism of snappy.

Part of the reason I mentioned flatpak is that I feel there is a natural center of gravity forming around the GNOME Shell and platform. Within the context of that platform I have seen flatpak mentioned as a key project by upstream, hence why I mentioned it. Of course, there is no reason why snappy couldn't be that key component too. I was also under the impression (potentially incorrectly) that snappy is focusing more on the cloud/server market, one which flatpak is not designed for at all.

In any case, for the record, I am a big fan of snappy, big fan of flatpak, and an even bigger fan of a consolidated app store that multiple distros use.

I don't watch Doctor Who, but great to see them pick a female doctor. Kudos, Auntie Beeb.
