I do not like the NEW trend in Linux either.
I mentioned in another post on another forum my concern over 'flatpak'.

CSS is another bug of mine in Linux.
A 2,000 line CSS which cascades into another 2,000 line file that refers to another 2,000...
Just so I can find the line of code to change the color of my window borders.
I used to see all kinds of programs for Linux but now fewer & fewer...
And that trend of Linux Programs turning into Windows Apps...
I see Linux becoming Windows 10, a complicated bloated pile of OS CRAP!
I was happy with Windows XP because places I worked used WinXP.
It was the best of the Micro$oft OS's.
Then I retired, then the WinXP laptop quit...
Now living in Linux and was loving it...
I am old school!
I grew up on DOS & Win3.1. Hated Win95&98. Then XP, ahhh...
I learned the old programming languages in HS & College.
Basic (on a teletype with paper tape!), Fortran, Cobol, Pascal & Modula, C, & Assembly.
I know of C++ but tend to stick with C.
I use Visual Basic for Excel and it still baffles.
I know I will get ranted at by Linux Lovers but I don't care.
I have pretty much turned off Linux Updates and am sticking with what works.
If I can't find a program I will write my own.
All you Object Oriented Hacks can !@#$%^&!!!
Go ahead Linux & become another Micro$oft Windows, I will NOT help!
