That’s… nice but I’m talking about how Signal handles Github issues



Don’t let perfection be the enemy of good. All my friends and family use Signal, it was a multi-year effort to pull that off. Signal will roll out usernames faster than the tide will turn, so let’s take our wins and learn to be better.


Trust, we run to not feel like penguin 4



Where’s the one where they’re curing cancer… “but at what cost?”



The memes posted today are too on point


Debian is great on the server, but definitely an unpleasant experience on the Desktop unless you know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it.


Fedora is a good choice for this. The distros are by large all the same, and the ones that send Telemetry the most do it less than the Windows Calculator app as a whole.

Good luck with Fedora - One tip to keep in mind is if you don’t like the look and feel of Fedora (it’s by default GNOME), you don’t have to jump ship to a new distro. Fedora has tonnes of skins, my favorite being KDE (image related). That said, try the default first! ~~


Made worse by the fact this was written by a Linux user


Pronoun wars are people looking for the easiest battle to say they participated, rather than the one with the most impact



Their privacy policy seems to be adamant about not sharing transcripts, but they do store them. Although they still do things in house… Yea, this doesn’t seem to great on second thoughts


As someone who uses Element, this is music to my ears. Great install choices too! (Links taken from <a href=“https://fluffychat.im/”>fluffy.im</a>, I’m just messing around with styling in the post)

MIT and BSD are cuckold licenses
I would say "change my mind" but I won't. I spent 5 years believing \*maybe\* I was missing something about them, but no, these are licenses selected 49.5% of the time for the wrong reason, 49.5% of the time because the original project devs were cucks, and 1% of the time because they're trying to replace a corporate dominant proprietary solution (which is the only valid usecase for these licenses). If you're a FOSS dev, have some self respect and choose a proper license.
