I want to find the most sustainable operating system, because computers nowadays waste a lot of energy, because of data collection and data processing. Avoiding unnecessary processes and using resources in a mindful way could reduce the CO2 output on the whole world.
This discussion grew very fast and I put all links to other platforms in the end of the blog article.
Move quietly and plant things :)

Appimages with delta-updates would be probably the best alternative to flatpaks which are indeed unnecessarily bloated (basically they force you to install a second fedora based OS)
Is there a virtual package manager, which is able to do delta-updates? Currently it looks like I will use Debian (stable) for the main system, but if there would be something like flatpak, which could provide the newest updates for a few applications, it would be just awesome to run those on such a stable system.
Not an appstore but works ok: https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageUpdate
Modern Distros ask if they should “integrate” appimages on the first launch.
