Not native Linux apps

Comment by Jupiter2
about PortableApps.com · Aug 2016 · 1 Helpful

portableapps.com is listed with the Linux tag. This should be removed. The site states that Wine is required to run their collection under Linux. They also suggest Wine and other emulated solutions to get these native Windows apps to run under macOS. You might as well boot into Windows on a Virtual Machine and run these apps or remove Linux entirely and replace with Windows.

I was a big fan of this site and especially portablefreeware.com (which I miss dearly) when I was a Windows user but these are not native Linux apps. On a positive note, Linux should soon see real (native), stable, portable solutions becoming more mainstream in the form of Ubuntu Snap Packages, Flatpak and others.
