burning the ships sort of appeal in that approach,
Actually, the correct analogy would be "burning platform" (and we all know how
well that ended).
Flatpacks are an unproven tech that can still crash and burn in the market.
Even if it eventually succeeds crash-landing it in Fedora while half the security and
management tools are lacking is a great way for the distribution to get an awful
reputation, while others will rip the fruits of this work some years later.
It would be nice, for once, if the desktop team could integrate its latest idea in the
distribution, and remove deprecated parts once the replacements are mature, instead of
forcing on everyone half-assed software, with half the bits missing, no alternatives, and
years of bad blood while they insist it is good enough and users are wrong to expect
working workflows (yay for echo chamber effects and devs agreeing with themselves they are
right but persecuted).
1. make flatpacked sofware behave like rpms in all the rpm-centric management tools, and
remove the rpm layer only when everyone *in* *the* *Fedora* *universe* agrees it is not
needed anymore and the replacements are better.
2. make a wayland, not a gnome 3.0
