myHD is an Ubuntu 16.04 (18.04 is under integration) in an isolated (namespace) environment BUT able to use Asportal to launch internal (to myHD) applications
ex. Chrome, Kodi18 (17), Plex Media Player, etc. etc.
THE biggest interest is (for application having an Ubuntu repository) NO NEED TO WAIT for a new APKG to get an updated software version. Ex. Chrome or Kodi18 (myHD) are always at the last stable version using Ubuntu apt update … Only applications without repository need to have a new APKG to be updated.
myHD also add new kernel modules to serve some specific usage (ex. squashfs to manage AppImage for ex. ; or wireguard to add simple, light but very performing VPN to NAS … for secure and fast access to remote file)
