This whole sandbox apps seem interesting. Canonical also talking about snaps :)

Meh, I can see why this concept is tempting for desktop systems but it makes me feel that 5 years from now I'll have to build my own Linux-From-Scratch distro to preserve kind of user experience I initially loved Linux for (minimal overhead, running same system on both your tiny media server and power desktop). "A runtime can be thought of as a /usr filesystem with fixed contents. When a bundled app gets run, the runtime it needs gets mounted at /usr." :(

I don't know at what point dynamic libraries came to be considered harmful, but it certainly seems to be the case now. And even if they are dynamic inside the container, every program shipping an individual copy of the libs means they might as well be statically compiled into it.
