I’m fully in love with Linux Mint. But I’m the curious sort who insists on having the most up-to-date software. When I used Windows. I would check for updates mostly on a weekly basis using my software page (back when it was Windows software on it).
With Linux, the Update Manager takes care of that for me. Well, I thought it would. After time I noticed I wasn’t getting updates for many things that should have. Until I realized the majority of the software included in the Software Manager is out-of-date. With no updates for many things like Thunderbird, LibreOffice and much more. Still getting used to how things are done in Linux-Land, I started noticing that Flatpaks are seemingly always up-to-date.
This disappointed me a little. But more research shows that it would seem Flatpak, like it or not, is the future. I refer to Nick for the rest 😉
Just thinking perhaps Linux Mint could start putting Flatpaks on by default and/or switch the default installed apps with the Flatpak versions. 🤔
