@distrotube Derek, I think you're overly obsessed with so-called 'bloat'. 😲
@distrotube shoving everything under the carpet doesn't reduce bloat ;)
In fact, you now have a *more* bloated system, because every appimage ships with its dependencies instead of sharing them with other programs.
Re having hundreds of updated packages: 1) maybe you shouldn't use an arch derivative if that bothers you; 2) try to update daily if you don't already; 3) Haskell may be at fault, try using statically linked versions from the AUR for programs written in haskell.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
