Linux & Open Source 2019: Chrome OS, Snap, Flatpak, RISC-V, and Stallman

It’s good for Chrome users, who now have a broader selection of apps from which to choose. It’s also good for Linux app devs, because it means their projects now have the potential for a larger base of users. More importantly, for us real Linux users it means we’ll see more software choices showing up in our repositories, as it now makes more sense for devs to port apps to Linux in order to take advantage of the combined Chrome OS/Linux market.
