About AppImage

AppImage is a way to package a software (for developer) and to install it (for user) in one-file-per-one-app way that is universal for all GNU/Linux distros. With this, a software can be made available in its website for Windows and Mac and GNU/Linux in their respective formats of .exe, .dmg, and .appimage. To run an AppImage formatted software is the same as EXE and DMG, just let it be executable and double-click it! See also a very nice comparison between AppImage, Snappy, and Flatpak. Thanks Simon Peter (probono) for his excellent works at AppImage!
