App developers are incentivized to keep their software working. When something breaks, the end user blames the app, not its 4th subdependency down the chain, which the end user doesn't even know exists. If the app developer goes to that subdependency and asks them to pretty please not make a backwards-incompatible change, it can spiral into semantic bickering over what actually constitutes a breaking change and what doesn't. At the end of the day, it's just easier for the app dev to bundle.

Here are Debian stats for these platforms:

popcon.debian.org

They've logged 8 users of each these platforms. Eight.

These platforms add up to one tenth of one percent of Debian users, by most generous interpretation of these stats.

I need a browser extension that replaces all occurrences of "Gnome" with either GNOME or gnome.

Up now: a blog post on how you can use the flatpak CLI to develop, test, and create distribution tarballs for your applications: https://blogs.gnome.org/christopherdavis/2021/02/16/developing-with-the-flatpak-cli/

Casual reminders that 9/10 comments on the internet don't know shit about what they are talking.

Debian: *still ships alpha*

Ubuntu: Hey mate, your 0.2 that you wrote in a delusional fever that doesn't even work anymore? Delish.
