Flatpak and/or Snap?

Bronze Contributor

Does Microsoft have any plans to develop/maintain a Snap and/or Flatpak for Edge-Linux?


This is important for three reasons:

(1)  Canonical is beginning to force browser installation in Snaps (with Ubuntu 22.04, for example, Firefox will be forced as a Snap);

(2)  Flatpak will allow users of independent (that is, not .rpm or .deb based) distros to use Edge.

(3)  Edge is an important, unifying tool for those of us who work in a mixed Windows/Linux environment.
