The OS itself is versioned and binary identical to any other
installation with the same version. There is no longer the
pathological behavior of everyone in effect having different sub
versions of Fedora because their package versions differ, because they
caught today's update, or yesterday's, or the before noon update, or
the one with the moon transitioning from crescent to gibbous.
So what is the user experience of "updating" in this world? How does the
transition from one snapshot to the next occur?

Also, how to copy / push such apps to workstations. We're going on 18
years since .app bundles on macOS can be drag and drop copied to
install, and it's like, really no one has copied this? The easiest way
to put a second copy on another machine is to just download it again?
Well macOS stole "app as a directory" from RISC OS which pushes the idea
back about 30 years ;-)
