End of pacman?

https://insights.ubuntu.com/2016/06/14/ … x-distros/

Snap brings in complete packages including dependencies so effectively standalone.

I doubt it. Though it can be very usefull, (especially in the windows world) i've seen too many solutions like this (e.g. App-V) which never made completely true what they promised or introduced new problems. There always will be a need for the apt-gets, pacmans, yum/dnfs etc.

Yes (flatpak) think for trying out of sand boxing it could be useful.

Hope it can deliver that it promises. There a lot of applications that are in Linux dwindling away. Maintenance will become much easier. On the other hand we have to wait and see if corporate involvement won't have negative side effects. It almost always has.

Snaps will be larger than normal packages (as they ship with required deps). Tried to get something running on Arch but most of the guides are for Ubuntu which has more support. Was thinking of the security side, packages (snaps) would be self contained almost like sandboxing.

Lets face it package managers are dying out, apt-get is so slow and out of date its unreal.
