Here's my thought on 💭 Distrobox

distrobox gives you distrobox-host-exec to run commands on the host. This is handy to get access to host level clis that you probably wouldn't want to run from the container like podman, docker, flatpak.

DESCRIPTION distrobox-host-exec lets one execute command on the host, while inside of a container.

Under the hood, distrobox-host-exec uses host-spawn a project that lets us execute commands back on the host. If the tool is not found the user will be prompted to install it.
