@ferthelet Time will tell I suppose.
For now, it doesn’t sway me from using Antergos.
The key benefit is to the Developers and Maintainers of a Distro.
“OSTree is a tool that combines a “git-like” model for committing and downloading bootable filesystem trees, along with a layer for deploying them and managing the bootloader configuration.
OSTree is like git in that it checksums individual files and has a content-addressed-object store. It’s unlike git in that it “checks out” the files via hardlinks, and they should thus be immutable. Therefore, another way to think of OSTree is that it’s just a more polished version of Linux VServer hardlinks.”
This is the first commercial Distro that doesn’t come with a traditional package manager.
Updates are performed using ‘ostree admin’.
How is this better than pacman makepkg combo? I am not sure. That is an open question for debate and my post is merely a ‘heads up’.
