Canonical: How to make snaps faster.
Snaps (and flatpaks for that matter) are a work in progress to unite Linux OS's. They're great for new users +those who treat a PC as just another occasional gadget in house.
No more obsolete and cumbersome PPA adding.
Speed relates to the user experience. With snaps, there are differences in execution times compared to ye olden Linux way. However, it is possible to even eliminate the gap!
@Linux I installed flatpak, thinking I'd be able to exec "flatpak someapp." It works nothing like that apparently. 60 seconds in "man flatpak" was inscrutable. apt-get remove flatpak.
@xj9 @Linux I see nothing of the sort on the app page, other than it should "just work." https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/Download
