More flatpak grumbling... so even after I went through the process of installing some utterly massive base packages to get just one or two packages to run, there happen to be updates to those base packages (as expected!). This means I'm looking at downloading up to 2.9 GB just to get system updates. There _has_ to be a better way to do this.
I wanted to install a matrix client called Fractal. They encourage you to use snap or flatpak - fine, whatever.
Then it pegged my DSL connection for several minutes before I realized it was grabbing 815MB...
Is it just me, or is that totally unacceptable for most apps (especially a messaging app)? I know Flatpak is "secure" and "sandboxed" - but holy hell, find some balance.
