Podman desktop works great in OpenSuse and with Distrobox and Kubernetes pods/containers. I just finished testing it out and it was a powerful combination.

Of course, you can do everything at the command line but you can also have a GUI to verify that you have set it up properly and save time from some of the Kubernetes commands you would use. I thought it was a lot of fun to go through the tutorial and set up my own Kubernetes cluster on my local computer.

Now what is the downside of this app? I can’t think of any. It was reliable, it never crashed or had an error. It instantly did what I asked it to do at all times. I can’t think of any way that it could be better honestly. When you first ran it walked you through the setup step by step. It told you what commands to run to get a demo file working and even let you copy the line to paste it easily into the terminal. It was a good teacher and a useful way to double-check your command line work. I would do it in the command line with Kubernetes commands and then go into Podman and see if it showed anything and it did. It was exciting to see that.

PodMan Desktop worked great with two different containerization technologies like Distrobox/Kubernetes and had extensions to be compatible with a lot more like the older style Docker that is falling out of use. I am so pleased at how flexible it is. I can’t imagine any system admin who wouldn’t have fun using this program.
