Recently I heard about Snaps which are described as "universal Linux packages". This seems like a really nice thing and although I didn't read much about it yet, there are some real improvements over traditional app management, like the ability to have the app sandboxed without interfering with others.
Now, on the page where we can list the available snaps we can see on the types Kernel Snaps.
But wait a minute, when I first read about snaps it seemed just like a new way to manage apps which we can install on the machine, like "a better apt-get". In that way it seemed pretty much to be userspace stuff.
What are those Kernel Snaps? What they are they used for?
