Absolutely yes. Obviously having clear guides and help is good to narrow those choices down, but if we go beyond the basic example of Linux distros, just check out the phone market. There are hundreds of new choices each year, without counting the ones from previous years. It’s absolutely impossible to get a good deal without tons of research or luck.

Had to deal with that experience personally these last couple of days, after years of not following the smartphone consumerism hype machine.

So Mozilla can do something right!

always has been (apart from the few moments where they don’t) 🌎️ 👨‍🚀 🔫 👨‍🚀

With Fedora 36 isn’t anymore true you can just turn on the switch for third party libraries and than you have RPM Fusion also enabled

False. Just like F35, all it enables is the “Fedora third-party repos”, which include Google Chrome’s and PyCharm’s repos, as well as Steam and NVIDIA Driver filtered RPM Fusion and filtered Flathub.

You still need to use the terminal to enable RPMFusion and there’s nothing the Fedora team can legally do currently to make it available to users in an easier way without putting themselves to some level of risk.

The Free Software Foundation Europe asks the EU to introduce legislation to extend the life of hardware and encourage device recycling through the unlocking of bootloaders, publishing of specs, and guaranteeing the right to repair through an open letter together with 38 organizations and companies.

We really need to teach children self-defense

Yes, but that by itself doesn’t end bullying, because bullying isn’t just physical assault. I’ve been through it myself for three years, during a time where bullying was juuuuuuust starting to come to the public discourse, but not taken seriously enough.

Of course there was physical assault involved, but also in a lot of other ways, like mean comments and gossips, being excluded from everything related to your colleagues, humiliation in many ways as well, like mean nicknames and making fun of the things you like or pulling pranks.

And also it usually isn’t an individual thing, it also depends a lot on the other people around the victim “looking the other way”, which happened a lot with me, with the point of other classmates acting as an alibi for the bullies and trying to gaslight me.

There’s not a lot that can be done about those if there isn’t an actual effort from the school.

They just implemented a systemd feature, systemd-oomd. To be honest, it can cause issues in some edge cases, but it works pretty well in any distro (that uses systemd).

I personally went with paulgo.io just because of the high quality ranking in searXNG lists the really clean UI.

UI/UX is currently the Aquilles’ heel for searXNG and I really want to see it improve.

Still needs better UX/UI if it ever wants to get close to being used by average folk. That’s how DDG and Startpage grew so much.

Yes it absolutely is, because “woke culture” is nothing but a strawman to justify LGBTQIA±phobia and racism. Let’s not forget that “traditional values” are forged in a lot of those things.

Just for a bit of context, this guy is mainly famous in the Linux community for his “Linux Sucks” series he used to do annually, with a light-hearted but pinpoint approach to tackling the main problems with the Linux desktop in general. That is, until the pandemic hit. Then he just unleashed his inner fascist that was probably always there.

Then his content became mostly complaining about “woke culture” mainly in Mozilla and the GNOME team, “cancel culture” after the whole schtick with RMS and his behaviour and probably his worst take yet to this day, reducing Linus Torvalds himself to a “vaccine passport company employee” when he yelled GTFO to another guy spreading misinformation about vaccines in the Linux kernel mailing list.

tl;dr the guy got famous for good content and then became publicly the complete ass he probably always was

Man, Lunduke can create some good content every once in a while, but fuck that guy.

He can’t even proceed to tell news without disrespecting Danielle’s transition and consistently calls her by her old name.

  • It doesn’t run like crap like Reddit’s redesign while still looking modern and good, unlike Old Reddit;

  • Good dark theme;

  • FOSS and federated;

  • Shuts down fascists and trolls hard and quickly enough for me (the new moderation system seems to be really good);

One of the things that libadwaita brings to the table that could have never been done without it in GNOME is accent color customization (that isn’t going to make it into 42, but maybe in 43 or 44), just like elementaryOS does with Pantheon; and the app itself can be recolored in many ways with some of the new features (like it already does with Metadata Cleaner).

It’s not a lot of customization in the hands of the users, but it brings loads of possibilites for the app developers themselves and guarantees that their apps won’t look broken due to some poorly implemented theme like it used to do with GTK3.

I found this while browsing Reddit, and going past the first reaction of "this is terrible" I think it can spark an interesting discussion on machine learning and how our own societal problems can end up creating bad habits and immortalizing those issues when building such systems. So, what do you guys think about this?
