The Kubic Project currently produces a "CaaSP-like" Tumbleweed OS, focused on Kubernetes clusters

However many of the attributes of Kubic (read-only filesystem, transactional updates, containerised services) could be an interesting platform for another use A Chromebook-like Linux Desktop

A read-only Tumbleweed installation, with the GNOME Desktop could be a very interesting platform for basic Linux users.

Stability can be preserved by the lack of variables introduced by the locked down base OS. OS Updates can be pushed out automatically on a regular basis (Weekly?). OS Updates will be atomic and automatically rolled back if they don't work, as we do in CaaSP / Vanilla Kubic.

The only question then becomes User-land Applications.

There's already lots of new answers for that - AppImage, Snaps & Flatpak

So my hackweek project will be to create a Kubic Desktop image and experiment with Flatpaks as the source of Application packages. I'm choosing Flatpak because of the tight integration with GNOME, and GNOME will be the only desktop, because it's my hackweek project, and so it's my choice ;)

Yes, this means after all of my talks about Flatpaks I am going to spend my hackweek using them..
