  1. Hi Chris and team,
  2. I've been a regular listener over the last year to a number of your programs.
  3. I'm intrigued by and curious about much of the software you mention regularly. I'm tempted to try some of it, but I don't have a good sense of how easy it is to delete or clean off installed programs in a way that ensures a stable system without a lot of left over junk.

  5. Can you give some insight about how you usually handle this. I'd rather not have to nuke-and-pave the OS over and over to insure a stable system.

  7. Do Snaps insulate your main OS from any concerns along these lines?
  8.  
  9. I'm inclined mostly to just install things inside VMs with GnomeBoxes or VirtualBox on the system since I'm assuming deleting the VM will destroy any trace of those programs. On the other hand, I'm guessing I'm not getting a true sense of the performance of those apps.

  11. I just thought you might discuss this on the show.
