Hey Lemmy!

We’ve released gofoss.net, a beginner’s guide to free and open source software, privacy and sustainable tech.

The site is available in English, French and German. We hope that it can help some of you to:

  • safely browse the Internet
  • encrypt your conversations
  • protect your data
  • switch to Linux
  • free your phone from Google & Apple
  • join the Fediverse & use alternative cloud providers
  • self-host your stuff

The source code is available on GitLab. Happy to chat, let us know what you think!

For more information, please come find us at gofoss.net :)

PS: We are 100% non-profit: no ads, no tracking, no sponsored or paywalled content.

    Thx for the post & feel free to elaborate. While we can’t please all, we are always open to constructive feedback. To be fair:

    a) we’re a bunch of FOSS idealists. So no affiliate links, sponsorships, crypto-shadiness or any other bullshit on our website

    b) we make it pretty clear none of those services is the panacea. We’re still convinced they’re better than Big Tech/GAFAM

    c) we mention caveats/criticism where deemed necessary, e.g. Mozilla’s conflict of interest, Signal’s privacy flaws, etc.

    d) we always mention a couple of alternatives, so that readers can pick & choose according to their needs
