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.
"One size fits everyone" approach can be dangerous. It never does, in
fact, fit everyone, and often sacrifices flexibility and resource usage
for the convenience of a single image.
I, for one, like to keep my installations minimal and I often uninstall
optional (weak) dependencies manually. With Atomic base I wouldn't
be able to modify the base easily on my system(s).
