AppImage is a format for distributing portable software on Linux without needing superuser permissions to install the application.
An application directory is a grouping of software code, help files and resources that together comprise a complete software package but are presented to the user as a single object.
Application virtualization is software technology that encapsulates computer programs from the underlying operating system on which it is executed.
Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions.
Autopackage is a free computer package management system aimed at making it simple to create a package that can be installed on all Linux distributions, created by Mike Hearn around 2002.
