@returntrip no, I still have it on my work laptop, but in my new work role I work with non-Podman container stuff most of the time.
Things are still possible to work around, but it is starting to feel a bit pointless to use it when I have to layer external repos, and hundreds of packages (when dependencies are counted).
@bkhl understandable.... for the machine I use at work there is one thing in I have not been able to fix and that nags me: Cisco Anyconnect VPN client cannot be layered/installed...sometimes I also think about switching to standard Fedora for work...
@returntrip the main question for me is if the "old" #Emacs will be a problem for me. Emacs in Flatpak was pretty quirky when I tried it, and even if it would work great it would be inconvenient as my workflows now depend on Emacs launching containers a lot (e.g. to run LSP servers and tests).
Fedora Workstation is an option of course, but feels silly for _one_ program (even if it is Emacs).
@returntrip maybe, though that still needs hacks to run container tools on the host, that are practically the same as with Flatpak.
Managing the compilation/installation of a few programs you particularly care about is entirely reasonable. You can also keep multiple installations around if you want to check on old vs new behavior.
@tfb @emacsomancer @returntrip sure, it's just that when I switched from Ubuntu to Fedora Silverblue I dropped a rather large set of Ansible playbooks to set up a lot of development stuff in my home directory. I'm quite wary of getting back into the same situation.
That said a year of living in Silverblue and doing almost all development stuff with containers has maybe immunized me against that somewhat.
