A few hours ago we learned how Martin Wimpress was talking about incorporating snap packages into Ubuntu MAT, starting with the MAT desktop itself. We also saw how a simple package could be created with a calculator that worked perfectly.
But this is not the only thing snap packages can do. Michael Hall has wanted to reaffirm the importance of snap packages and not allow them to be left as superfluous, as he has done himself a transformation from deb packages to snap packages which will not leave anyone indifferent.
The software we refer to is nothing more and nothing less than Critical 3.0. Hall wanted to demonstrate the full potential of snap and has performed the conversion of a version of Krita 3.0, Something he has done in a simple way and with a fully functional result.
Hall has created a Krita snap package to demonstrate its power
Hall has assured that snap is not just for calculators and will allow users to have the latest versions of their favorite programs just a few hours after launching publicly as the creation of snap packages and updating it does not take as long as deb packages, The current package system that was inherited precisely from Debian.
The results of the snap package are very good, there is no doubt about it, but the problem with this new package system is not in its quality but in its quantity, in the number of developers who will use this new parcel system. For now, still Snap is used in Ubuntu Core, there are few packages that have their snap version and this is something that I think will unfortunately stay for a long time What do you think? Do you think snap will eventually be the standard Ubuntu package? Have you tried any installations via snap?
