Ubuntu Desktop will eventually switch to Snappy packages by default, while continuing to provide deb-based images as an alternative, at least for a while. I’m sure this doesn’t come as a surprise for some of you, but further details regarding this have been revealed today.
They’re slowly moving away more and more from Debian packages.
I understand that it is a hybrid model between docker and what OSX has for packages but I wonder why no one else had done it so far!
This way we can actually rollback, maintain more distro independent packages and better form of publishing them. So good but I still would have hoped some form of collective open source groups would have done it, like Redhat, and others together. People who use docker these days don’t even care to publish their project using old source package models. Although security needs some work.
