A few years ago we just kept dreaming of a package format, similar to the one used in MacOSX for installation, since this process of installation is much simpler than installing an application in Windows. About a decade ago, such an attempt was the handling of binary packages with the extension *.package or Zero-install.
Although we were early adopters then as well, this method did not become widespread. The initiative was even a bit early since hardcore users were not in need of such a solution and they probably still arent. However…
It became and it is fashionable to use Linux desktop systems! The ever growing number of users keep complaining about the seemingly more complicated installation methods. Actually, its just that average users have got used to downloading and installing all sorts of junk on Windows (Yes->Next->Next->Finish: familiar?). This tends to propagate the spreading of viruses, but sadly no one is interested in security. Unfortunately, the basic attitude to operating system is that the user dos not want to think or read.
So be it!
We hereby announce that the support for AppImage formats has started in blackPanther OS, which makes it extremely easy for the users of blackPanther OS to run applications.
Why so simple? Because all you need to do is download the package and copy (move) it to one of the folders storing the applications and youre good to go, as the below video also shows:
Install this integration:
The AppImage packages contain applications that can be downloaded, installed and run from external sources. Only use them if you trust the compiler of the package. We cannot be held liable for damage caused by malicious content.
