Android is not really FOSS though. Google took the Linux kernel and a few other things to give themselves a headstart, and then built a closed source userspace on top of it.

Even the panic this offer caused among blue ticks is worth it :) I’m enjoying the Schadenfreude.

DuckDuckGo Removes Pirate Sites and YouTube-DL from Its Search Results
Yet another slight from Duckduckgo, adding to the many they have done recently. I'm looking for a new search engine to be my daily driver. Any suggestions? Startpage? Brave?

He’s not a good person. But Elon Musk is a wrecking ball, going through the system and demolishing it. If he buys Twitter and open sources it, then the world will be a slightly better place.

Windows is malware itself. No computer system is so ridiculously unsecure.

I've been a long-time Elon skeptic. But if he does this, I'm open to being an Elon fan.

You get banned by the mods if you disagree with the narrative.

What I meant is that the Western dogma paints China as a dystopian hellspace that might collapse any day now.

Reddit is not filled with NeoNazi users. It’s just that Reddit wants to do an IPO and therefore censoring everything that deviates from the mainstream narrative as not to hurt the share price. It’s not ideological, just business.

Huawei disproves all the dogma Western elites have been saying about China. That is why they hate it and have been trying to bring it down with sanctions.

It’s even more impressive once you realize that most of Huawei’s staff is in China where the cost of living is much lower. 9.65 billion buys a lot more in China than it buys in the West.

To be honest this is not the stuff I expected from NYT. Suprisingly anti-car and pro-public-transportation.

Senior officials at the European Commission were targeted last year with spy software designed by an Israeli surveillance firm, according to two EU officials and documentation reviewed by Reuters. Among them was Didier Reynders, a senior Belgian statesman who has served as the European Justice Commissioner since 2019, according to one of the documents. At least four other commission staffers were also targeted, according to the document and another person familiar with the matter. The two EU officials confirmed that staffers at the commission had been targeted but did not provide details. The commission became aware of the targeting following messages issued by Apple to thousands of iPhone owners in November telling them they were "targeted by state-sponsored attackers," the two EU officials said. It was the first time Apple had sent a mass alert to users that they were in government hackers' crosshairs.

Bush Jr was a mass murderer and a war criminal. I don’t know of he’s also a nazi, but unlikely.

osmapp.org is great!
I just discovered osmapp.org after the post on HackerNews. It is a great maps "app" for android. I put "app" into quotes because it just runs on your browser. I am not sure if osmapp.org or organic maps will be my daily driver, but both are looking very good!

Workers of Lemmy who were working from home: Are you being harassed to return to the office?
After working from home for two years, we are being "encouraged" to return to the office. Most of us see no point in returning to the office and suffering through long commutes again. I expect it to get ugly. What about you?

Reddit was fun when it was a place for nerds. As Facebook got worse, the Facebook crowd brigaded and took over reddit. This is why reddit has been getting worse.

You were suspended for not conforming with the narrative. Not for this comment.

I think integrated graphics are particularly bad for gamemode. I now avoid it after trying it out and not seeing much benefit.

Stopped drinking coffee. You would not believe how much positive impact it had on my life.

Looking for an open source app for ping and tracepath functionality.
I'm looking for an open-source app to do some network debugging: resolving hostnames, pinging and tracepath functionality. Anyone know any existing app like this?
