Hi, I believe MATE userbase is conservative and mature when it comes to computing in that they prefer time-tested, working solutions than 'shiny new things'. However, I'm just curious to know (esp after seeing the LM's reaction), what you all feel about 'snap' packaging system. Do you like it? hate it? don't have any preference either way? are interested in trying out? had bad experience? etc. I just created this poll (my first, and a learning experience ) to know more about it.
In my limited experience, I feel that open source community has not been all that fair to Ubuntu. I see that Ubuntu team come up with something and most of the time, if not always, open source community jump on them painting them as villains and come up with alternate solution instead of collaborating and improving. In the end Ubuntu just abandons the project they started; Unity, touch devices, Mir, Upstart etc. Although I am not expert, I do not want snaps to fail, just because some in the community dislike/hate Ubuntu/Canonical. Let me know what you think.
- I like (or would like to know about) snaps. I do not mind applications (including core applications) offered as snaps by default.
- I do not like snaps. I do not want applications (including core applications) offered as snaps by default.
- Cannot decide.
