  1. After:
    sudo apt-get install com.github.philip-scott.notes-up
    I get:
    Couldn’t find any package by glob ‘com.github.philip-scott.notes-up’
    (Ubuntu 18.04)

  2. Elementary is not my cup of tea but there’s no doubt it’s an impressive distribution. I can certainly appreciate what the developers are doing.

    One of the things that put me off about Elementary is the lack of apps in its Appstore. However, what is available is top shelf and I like where they are going with Elementary. Theirs is a philosophy that would benefit FOSS and distribution development as a whole if a similar standard were adopted.

    I commend its developers for not allowing software into the Appstore unless it meets a certain criteria standard in design and function. Very cool.
