    I know your video is a bit old as of today, but as far as I know, a simple EULA isn't legally binding in court. If MS would abuse ANYTHING like it, especially if its about personal data, then they could end up in big trouble. Moreso in Europe with the newly passed GDPR law(s). This license agreement isn't even compliant with it. I'm no fool, though, and I know that as long as no one takes notice of it, that they just don't give a damn. But still. They can legalese all they want, if it comes down to it, they could get into big trouble. The EU doesn't mess around with that stuff.

    Snaps are handy for systems that don't have native support or your trying to make an application that has a lot of external dependants. but I find Snaps use more hard drive space and memory as a whole and are slower. maybe in the age of 6 and 8 core CPUs with gigs of ram and seemingly unlimited storage space, that's ok. But it's not very efficient for people using something like HP streams that are both ram and storage limited, let alone potato powered CPUs. All that extra overhead can be costly.

    I use Google Chrome on all my systems... Windows, Linux, and my mobile devices... And it works perfectly. It does exactly what I need it to, and its sync functionality means that I have my profile across ALL my devices. I despise Firefox... Mostly because of the lack of proper profile management (It does have it, but it's not enabled by default and requires a lot of playing around to make it work), and partly because it seems to display some webpages wrong. A problem I don't have with Edge, Chrome, Opera, or Safari.

    I am quite interested in in putting a version of Linux on a Windiws7 computer I have.. It has an AMD processor so I want something that will work. I've been leaning towards Mint but MX looks interesting. Some years ago I had some Linux experience. I was quite interested the the HP48GX calculator and in a library for it known as Jazz which could convert the cryptic internal code into a human readable string which could be edited and recompiled to modify it. Software was built on computers for it but the DOS/Windows system of the day could not compile Jazz. In order to compile it a linux machine was needed. So I got interested in the Linux of the day which was terminal based. I was at home on a terminal and s graphic user interface was looked at almost as a luxary. The MX Linux seems to be closer to home because it works more like the old Linux. Now I need to consider it.

    Snaps are the future, because it saves both the distro owner and the developers a lot of time and money. It will make it easier for commercial companies to move their products to Linux, because instead of N Linux versions of the same product they only have to maintain one. And if the developer makes an error and the Apps does not work anymore after an update, you can rollback the snap and go back to the working version.

    Can you make a video of doing a UEFi install? (This is a legacy install) I'm in the process of doing this for a computer that will have win10 on one drive and mint 19.2 on a separate drive but in order for this to work Linux needs to be installed in UEFi mode and partition table different and stuff.

    Yeah snaps are controversial. In some ways they're "nice" since they do not have issues like dependency clashes. You can have 2 programs using different versions of dependencies, not really possible with normal deb install. Though this is also possible with flatpak and appimage, the two major competitors of snap. My own personal issue with snap is those loop mount points. I have a setup where I mount into a sparse file, which gets encrypted. This I do through a script running at startup. And the only way I've found to mount it is through a loop mount. Unfortunately, snaps interfere with that. Meaning each time a snap is installed or updated, the loop mount orders seem to change, meaning I have to edit that script to now point to another loop mount. I've not seen a way to make these more consistent. But my solution was to just get rid of snaps in totality, if I want something like this then rather just use flatpak (it does the same thing, just not using loop mounts). BTW, it's one of the behind-the-scenes changes Mint does on top of Ubuntu. They replace the snap package manager with flatpak instead.

Two years ago I tried Windows 10 for 3 days - found the 45 pages of TOS they buried, discovered my logitech camera was now listed as a Microsoft camera by Dell and I couldn't take a selfie for authorization into an online college course - turned out since I wouldn't bend over for the Windows 10 Store they denied access & use of my own equipment which they now claimed as theirs- FY Bill or Satoshi or whatever your name is now. Immediately reinstalled W7, but not for long. Very soon I shall be free of that evil cabal forever & for good.

    As a relative newby with Ubuntu I had a problem with snap - there are two entries for KeePassXC (my preferred password manager) in the Discover software manager. At some point I had clicked on both of them and both were installed. If it were not for the fact that one of them did not follow my desktop theme it might have been a long time before I twigged. You see, one of them integrated with the browsers seamlessly and the other just wouldn't. Depending on which shortcut icon I happened to use to launch the program it intermittently worked and failed. It was, of course the snap package which was all wrong - there was no mention of its different status or non standard program file location etc. (it did give itself permission to load upon booting without ever asking too.) I did learn quite a bit whie sorting this out - principally how to delete and remove snap and ALL its packages. And then I got rid of Discover and replaced what apps I wanted using Muon package manager. As a side benefit my home disk is way less cluttered and quite a bit less full.

    If I were using Ubuntu, I'd try to uninstall everything related to snap (meaning snapd & those conversion scripts). If that were not possible, I'd hop to another distro that's not based on *buntu. Probably Debian. Forcing snaps on users is shady thing to do. Specialy if they do it for older versions of *buntu family. Many people are running away from Microsoft because it was forcing things. Now Canonical is trying to pull the same s**t. Luckily, Linux is all about the choice.

    Is there a chance of corrupting the file system if I run a scheduled backup in anacron and shutdown the computer during the process. Since there is no terminal output there is quite a high chance of that happening. Does anacron complete or otherwise safely handle the unfinished backup on the next reboot or does it just start a new job. In the case of e4defrag I am a bit worried that powering the system of during a defrag could corrupt the filesystem.

    • Joe Collins

    Thanks for uploading this. Very informative indeed. I do however have a question. Say I have scheduled a postgreSQL backup to run daily but open my pc a month later, would that mean that anacron runs the backup 4 times or would it just execute the last backup request?

      benriful How do you get at the structure of the AppImage, though? It just look like a huge monolithic executable. Does Linux have something like a resource fork like the classic macs?

    • benriful
      benriful Day ago

      @Ram Laska It's actually pretty much the same thing as snap/flatpak. Just the implementation differs. For one thing, it also doesn't really need any extras to run, unlike snap needing snapd to run. The actual file you download for appimage contains its own runtime. After you've downloaded it, right-click properties and under permissions set its executable flag on. Then just double click the file to run it. Some linux distros come with a setting to then just add these to your menu at the first time you run it. Out the gate, Snap and flatpak enforce sandboxing. AppImage allows it, but doesn't enforce it, it's up to whoever make the appimage file to turn this on/off. And it is actually possible to edit the file - it's just a ZIP file with specific folder structure and a text file with settings.

    • Ram Laska
      Ram Laska 2 days ago

      benriful I’m not sure how AppImage works. They say it doesn’t do sandboxing, but I’ve also heard it’s basically an iso or disk image file. So I’m guessing it somehow reads and writes to the disk image, but I’m not sure if it is actually mounted or not. It would be interesting to try to find out. I do like AppImage, and flatpak seems pretty decent as well (they label more of their licenses, which is critical to me).

    • benriful
      benriful 2 days ago

      Exactly my issue with snap as well. Those loop mounts actually interfere with mounts I setup myself. And why is this loop mounting needed? Flatpak and AppImage can do the exact same thing as Snap without having to loop mount each and every program individually.

  • Kuhluh
    Kuhluh 4 days ago

    I like the idea of appimages, snappy and flatpak, especially from a security point of view. One of the problems of binary software releases on Linux is that you (as the developer) need to recompile and distribute your program for a lot of distributions/distribution versions (Linus Torvalds also complained about that once) individually which is a lot of work and a lot of developers (understandably) to want to deal with that (especially because normal user don't care about such problems). Another positive things is that the apps are sandboxed (similar to running a docker container) which is really good from a security point of view (and Linux is also a big hacker target these days, most servers, basically all IoT-devices, and Android use the Linux-kernel, the times that is was more secure by being less used are long gone). So in a whole: more secure, by being less work for developers it's a bit more likely that they also build for Linux (example: Spotify, available as debian, snap and flatpak package), and being easier to remove manually (if you ever need to do so).

    • Hyp3rSoni X
      Hyp3rSoni X 4 days ago

      @Kuhluh I know, that's what I mean. If there are 20 different approaches to sandboxing programs, then in the end the devs still have the higher workload of packing their stuff into different 'sandboxers'. But yeah, if the only real advantage of sandboxing is security, then I too would say it's great on servers, but not really that good for the normal user. At least not every single program.

    • Kuhluh
      Kuhluh 4 days ago

      @Hyp3rSoni X to be fair, every distro gives you the option to install flatpak if not already done by default (sudo apt install flatpak on Ubuntu for example, but yeah)

    • Kuhluh
      Kuhluh 4 days ago

      @Hyp3rSoni X Appimages and flatpaks are sandboxed too The reason for sandboxing is security, the user won't really the notice the difference between non-sandboxed and sandboxed (besides a small speed penalty) but a packages which is a virus can't really brick your system (but could keylog you still with the insecurity of the X-Window-System if you use it instead of Wayland)

    • Kuhluh
      Kuhluh 4 days ago

      @Hyp3rSoni X different versions of libraries make programs quite often needing to recompile and things like apt following the Unix philosophy of having as small packages as possible; that's why we don't have something similar like .exe files

    • Hyp3rSoni X
      Hyp3rSoni X 4 days ago

      well... if in the end there are like 200 alternatives to snaps, nothing will change. You will still need to package your app for all those sandboxers, because well... the userbase will once again split between all of them. I already see people rooting for appimages, others for flatbacks, and some for snaps etc. The Linux community seriously needs to start determining "standards" that everyone has to follow, but give the users the choice to opt out. For example if they choose flatpacks as the standard, every distro has to include it, but also give the user the choice to remove it and use something else instead... Just an example. But yeah... then there are people who will complain for standards to even exist etc. But I honestly don't see that much of a great future in snaps. Especially in the mindset of "run everything in a sandbox". Why do we even need things like snaps? Why can't linux distros also have something similar like the Windows .exe that I can just run in every distro? I mean they're all Linux in the end...

    Thank you for another great video. Ubuntu Eoan GNOME is rocking. It is interesting that you are working with Boxes in this video. It would be interesting to hear your evaluation of Boxes and how it stacks up beside VirtualBox. As a matter of interest did you know an existing VirtualBox vdi. can be imported and converted to run on Boxes.

    That's what I don't like that they decide what I need and don't need on the desktop. If you don't like snaps don't remove them or your 19.10 hangs in a boot loop. It didn't find Chromium the first time because you typed chomr.

    19:29 you didn't use the snap cmd correctly. When forking at that decission myself(same env yada yada yada), using snap instead of apt is when the hierachy is created. So like (forgive me if i am 100% wrong here) apt install chromium-browser would make like '/bin/chromium-browser' where using snap would make like '/snap/etc/chromium-browser'. Is how to say that the best way for explenation. i think apt wouldn't make jails though.

      I didn't use that snap command at all! That's the point. They SWITCHED me from APT to Snap with a transitional package.

    I will never use Ubuntu again because of the way they are forcing snaps. Ubuntu and all derivatives are no longer welcome on my hardware.

    The first time you searched for Chromium you misspelled it and typed "chomr." That's why you didn't find it the first time around.

      Yes. it does the same thing. This change is in the main Ubuntu repos so it effects EVERYTHING that is based on Ubuntu.

      also since Linux kernel 5.0 the have problems with the kernel because of licenses (because a kernel module can't use kernel modules released under the GPL if it isn't released under the GPL itself)

    I've actually never been keen on a cluttered desktop. A wallpaper and maybe a couple of desktop widgets with full transparency and I'm good. Removing the app menu would kinda make sense cause most apps don't make use of it anyway.

    Thanks for a great review/overiew of Manjaro Linux…currently using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and learning the pro’s of using linux… Thinking of running Manjaro but undecided between Gnome or XFCE…? but appreciate your honest thoughts….

      I think I'd do XFCE if I was going to run it long term. That's sort of the default for Manjaro and they do a great job setting it up. :)

    You should record a video on Gnome Boxes at some point. I've been happy with VirtualBox but I am curious about this alternative. Thanks for all of the great content! I know that I will learn some new things when I watch one of yours.

      @Joe Collins Yes! Please! Personally I would love to see if its graphics performance is any better than VBox. It's the main reason I go through the convoluted install process for VMWare Player, my graphics intensive apps simply do not run well in a VBox VM. If Boxes does this better through its underlying Type 1 HV (Qemu - theoretically it "should") then it is definitely an option for me.

    Hi Joe in case no one has mentioned it I use Ubuntu 1904 on an older system with Core i5 and 16GB of RAM and VirtualBox runs just fine it's zippy for me, maybe there's a bug with VirtualBox and Ubuntu 18 just thought you'd like to know.

    I like snap since there's a lot more software and versions with it. I don't know if I'd like it to replace apt. I'm mostly waiting for 20.04. I'm a single board computer user. Only LTS versions are stable enough to do good work. Manjaro is then another solution, but I always come back to Armbian(Ubuntu) Bionic 18.04. For now. If it works, don't fix it. A lot of work goes into making things work well on SBC's. So a transition isn't always easy. Thank you for the great info. Cheers, NicoD

      I believe the purpose of Snap in part is to prevent the use of random PPA's.

    dude you should try qemu + virt manager its the best trust me! virt manager has very nice GUI to pass through hardware if you want to try that

      @eznix Yeah, I looked at it. I think one of my issues was that VBox is Qt, though. Boxes is GTK :)

      @Joe Collins Have you tried Aqemu? It is a Qt frontend to Qemu. It seems to work well, but the interface takes some getting used to. :-)

    I installed the Brave browser at one point as a snap on Debian. My issue was that the system would not recognize Brave as the default browser. You might check that with chromium.
