:linux: Package 📦 Managers: vs vs
Which one do you use ? and why (comment)?


@linuxtechmore flatpack, appimage and snap are not packagemanagers.

apt, yum, zypper, pacman and nix are.

You are asking for container formats!

@musicmatze Package managers provide a way of packaging, distributing, installing, and maintaining apps in an operating system.
So you can consider Flatpak and Snap as a package managers.

@linuxtechmore Containers can be used to bundle applications and include all the necessary dependencies, so you can consider Flatpak and Snap containers.

@selea @musicmatze Theoretically, They are.
And this is my opinion and may be it's wrong.
