@TheEvilSkeleton I use Flatpak and I fully agree with you that there is a need to balance practicality vs. idealism when it comes to (fully auditable) FlatPak apps, as well as FlatHub's overall approach and continual work within the desktop Linux ecosystem.

What's more, the fact that an entire domain was devoted to what could have been a blog post gives credence to 'flatkill' being FUD which, while valid for discussion, is most certainly not beneficial to the FOSS community writ large.

@TheEvilSkeleton Either way, from your article TIL about Flatseal[0] so I'll be taking that for a spin!
