RE: Moving from Windows to Linux

What do you have to use snap for in Ubuntu? I've been using Xubuntu for years and the only thing I've ever used snap for was to install Brave. I'm a version or two behind though. Also, I guess I don't install all that much software but almost everything I do install I do via apt.

I don't know, I try to avoid them, I know Firefox is a snap, and if you disable snap and try to apt get firefox, it replaces it with a snap. I really don't like that behavior and didn't look further.

You can completely remove Snap and use apt on Ubuntu, you do need to ensure you modify the upgrade configs though otherwise it will come back on system upgrades.
