Hmm, at https://flatpak.org/faq/#Is_Flatpak_a_c ... technology_ they claim they don't necessarily run in containers though? And even with containers, I'm not sure there's necessarily a fundamental reason those should be terribly slow. What kind of 'significant time' are you talking about? When I for example run "time docker run alpine ls" that takes under 2 seconds in total - which seems slower than reasonable to me, but still not super relevant for an application that would run for 6 hours.AlexTheBassist wrote:Yes, this is the very nature of Flatpak. There's that daemon which starts up too slow, and one can't run Flatpak programs bypassing it. They are started this way:raboof wrote:This is interesting. Do you have any idea why? Is this caused by a fundamental design flaw, or simply an implementation problem that can be fixed?because Flatpak apps run in containers, which take significant time to even get running.
Code: Select all

I think the NixOS concept is very interesting, but have never used it in practice. Have you?AlexTheBassist wrote:For us, the better thing is Nix package manager.
