Ubuntu releases Core 22: Its IoT and edge distro


Re: Snap....

Most Linux users have probably never built a package from source in their entire life, and many wouldn't know how. Most use pre-built packages from their distro's repositories.

There are source based distros, but the user base is small. If you like building packages as a hobby that's fine, but not many people do.

Snaps are well suited for the market that Ubuntu Core is addressing, which is dedicated "appliances" which do one thing and need regular completely automated atomic updates with no user interaction.
