          Deleting deb packages from the repository and replacing them with snaps on an increasing number of packages AND making it so snap auto-reinstalls itself is absolutely fricking disgusting and I do not want to use Ubuntu out of principle.

          Note that the Arch Linux example still relies on the computer having Wi-Fi; I consider the system has an Ethernet link or something still.
          With Ubuntu, Debian and probably RHEL/CentOS/Fedora, you can usually download a .deb/.rpm package shipping with the driver and add it to your system with a USB stick. I should know; I've done that.
          On Arch Linux, you must have another Arch system to actually makepkg the thing before you can use it.
          >Sandboxing isn't why people hate snaps.
          It's not but people keep saying that "the Snap Store is closed-source and FlatPak exists so frick Snap"; while the argument for the Snap Store being closed is indeed a true concern, Snaps are still technically better than FlatPaks for all I know. Easier to maintain and better security notably.
          Maybe FlatPak will catch up eventually. Hopefully, even. But snap has Canonical backing them up.

      This.

      It's essentially the Linux distribution with most of the benefits people claim Windows has, so all of the support, ease of use, popularity, etc... this is why many here hate it, but also why a lot of the people leaving Windows like it, though for them I think Linux Mint is better for familiarity alone, to me it almost feels like Ubuntu could really be a lot more popular if it used Cinnamon instead.

    Once it reached a certain threshold, it's just an inevitability. Even if there may be better distros nowdays, you don't find another one as widely supported and it's not that bad. Anything it's missing over other distros, you can change. it's linux after all.

    Debian did most of the work. Then Canonical came along and did the things Debian couldn't or wouldn't do. People in the Debian community were trying to get Debian to see reason and focus more on the desktop use case. But Debian was too principled for that. Now most people just use Ubuntu when they need a Linux desktop.

    The only other distro worthy of consideration by the masses is Arch.

      The sad state of debian is that they make it incredibly hard to add new software to it. If you want to, you need a dev to "sponsor" your package, which is incredibly hard unless you have connections. Similarly, making a PPA is bullshit hard and it's difficult to make them trustworthy. Makedeb is also broken in several ways.

    when an app wants access to the hdd, it should ask what folders it has permission to access, and disk access should be logged so I can tell if it's trying to look for crypto wallets or something
    when an app wants access to the network, it should declare what websites it wants to communicate with, each attempt should be logged so the user can decide if it's spyware or not

      haven't noticed much of a difference now
      firefox snap really slow before, but they've taken steps to improve it, and the updater will automatically update it when it can instead of refusing to do anything if the app is open
