I am using Snap on Ubuntu. It's super convenient, and I do like it. My only complaint, for snap specifically, is that it clutters up `df` output since each snap package is a virtual disk.

I have not heard of Flat Packages.

It's a good idea though. Self contained packages means you dont have weird library dependencies issues. You will lose disk space though, but I think its a fair trade off. Also makes obtaining new software easier for people.
