          It's honestly quite barebones, but it gets the job done of providing you a GUI for updates.
          It also, due to being written in Python, is very easy to write and maintain, which is far more important in this case than performance.
          Most of the execution time, the program is running apt commands, writing something like this in C or any other systems programming language is casting pearls before swine.
          Python *is* the right tool for this job.

            There's literally a GUI for adding PPAs and what could you possibly need that exists outside of DPKG and Flatpak?
            If you're doing some niche work,or just want something reproducible, then I guess i could understand Nix Package Manager, but at that point you should know how to run like three commands over the CLI.

          What? I have never needed to manually add a repository, much less one that was advertised by the installer.
          The only manually added repository I have is Wine, because Wine recommends it so, and some standalone .deb packages installed, which is basically the same like using an installer .exe in Windows for software you need.

            There are, otherwise, also the Wine package(s) in the Debian repository, and for 95% of use-cases, these are sufficient and the Flatpak versions.
            In the software manager in picrel, there are even three versions listed, since I manually added WineHQ's repository to my apt sources.

            Yes, learning which of these packages to install (so that it automatically installs the other packages, which are most of the time dependencies) is a bit like learning which is the real download button when using Windows software.
            You either get filtered or not.
            Except, in Linux, at least, making a mistake on your end does not mean you have involved a malicious actor in your operating system.

            Then use the Flatpak or read the Docs at WineHQ to install from their repository.
            Also, that part is Debian's "fault."
            And for non-meme Windows exclusive software, like submitting and filing tax reports, Wine 6.0 is absolutely sufficient.
            If you're using games and a normie, just use Steam, sometimes you gotta force the usage of a certain Proton version, but otherwise, that shit works OOTB.
            There are some Linux oddities, like multiple monitor setups with different refresh rates not quite working, that may catch you unguarded.
            You gotta know if you can live without that or if you can get matching monitors instead, and you gotta know if it's worth it for you.

            Yes, you're using regular Mint, which is based on Ubuntu LTS 20.04 iirc, which is based off of Debian 11.

        So now? It's stable. Using debian however.

        Kubuntu can't even update snaps graphically. You're given a snap Firefox and you can't even update it after installing the system, it's very odd when your update manager says "no updates available" yet your Firefox is very outdated. They don't give a shit and will not address this.

            But you don't have to use snaps on Kubuntu right...it just comes preconfigured so you can install snaps right away but usually use the normal repos. I don't see why Linux Mint is needed with Kubuntu, any minor benefits are probably cancelled out by all the extra maintenance needs.

    Tried it recentely but... Why can't I post on IQfy using it? I have literally the same machine running win10 and linux mint (same network, same IPs) and I get a "you're range banned, homosexual" on linux while I can post just fine on win10.

      I'm waiting until Distrobox is officially added to the repos on the next release, this + Flatpack is a good solution. You could also try Nix. I wasn't a fan, but it may work for you.
