...kinda reminds me of why I don't like to deal with Linux for everyday use. Software installation is too much of a hassle for everything that moves faster than the distribution release cycle (and I don't like Snap). No idea if people even build Flatpack bundles for ARM?
Whereas the old Windows way of "download, run installer" still works fine, despite all its different kinds of problems (hello dll hell and malware).
@galaxis Some software developers provide a broad range of supported versions (Resilio Sync is such a positive example, too), but for most things that are not part of a distribution, it’s rather painful and non-fun. And even if the publisher provides a repo for the distri (which is nice), adding that to your repo-list is typically not made for non-admins.
But I’m sure 2022 will be the year of the Linux desktop.

@galaxis another option is to package it yourself, and maybe it's not that hard but I didn't try yet.
