@azubieta it seems like appimage would solve the issue of needing to package multiple binaries for various distros yeah? I know there are draw backs (like size) but compatibility between distros seems ideal.

@Hawk1291 that's correct. Not requiring any additional dependency to run is its major advantage.

@azubieta so in theory, companies or projects not supporting Linux because they don't want to maintain multiple packages for so many distros is no longer an excuse.

@Hawk1291 It hasn't been an excuse for awhile with appimage and flatpak.
