i think distributions themselves will eventually devolve towards
bootable one-use applications, managed through hard virtualization.
there is a lot of fuss and noise about the importance of standardized
installs for those who just want to press a button and work, but if i
could deliver a bootable-SD to 1000 customers, i'd have a far easier
time as a developer, making distributions irrelevant entirely ..
