As a user of standard Fedora, what would this give me?

Configuration of my system is mostly easy when setting up (dnf install xyz, plus 2 config file tweaks in /etc). It's the config of everything in /home that's complex (gnome settings, my emacs, bash and git config etc.).




Its immutable, so painless upgrades without worrying about a borked package that systems tend to have after you've been running across major releases. It also grabs most desktop apps through Flatpak, so in theory more frequent releases of desktop software.

It's a trade-off. I like it because I want a system that always works and updates silently, and I don't make heavy customizations. It's probably not for you.
