AppImage (and similar) have a big disadvantage: if a vulnerability is discovered in any bundled library, it is *not* fixed by the update by the linux distro. The bundled library remains remains vulnerable forever, or at least until the author of the AppImage finds time to fix it. This is the main reason why all linux distros strictly forbid to use bundled libraries in distro packages.
