The current title seems to be unpopular. Do you have any suggestions for a better title?


Signal's servers are no longer open source for anti-spam reasons.

We build Signal in the open, with publicly available source code for our applications and servers. To keep Signal a free global communication service without spam, we must depart from our totally-open posture and develop one piece of the server in private: a system for detecting and disrupting spa…

It is not a mistake. I said “many don’t work well”, you say “many work fine.” Those two things are not mutually exclusive. Many can work fine, many can work badly, and many can work fine with minor issues.

I’m not a English native, does “many” as used in context like this not mean “most of the objects in the category mentioned in the sentence”, but only that there are many of them? If so, then your sentence “many linux versions of games have either major bugs or are almost unplayable” doesn’t seem to provide any meaning, does it?

Valve games all work fine (besides modding, sometimes you can run into path issues or similar)

Just a reminder: multiple problems in the Linux versions of some Valve games have not been fixed for several years, I have seen multiple problems with Left 4 Dead 2.

so they rely on often-apathetic developers to release a fix.

I agree that we should support linux developers, but I think it is a difference in philosophy on whether people should exclusively support linux devs

I think so too. I can’t convince myself to pay for a game from a developer who is apathetic about linux .

For games like Borderlands 2, Planetary annihilation, Rocket league, Rust, etc… those fixes never came and in 2 of those cases, linux support was just removed instead.

especially when their support of linux may be fleeting.

It’s really a terrible story. I was also annoyed by Borderlands 2. Fckn Linux support… Darkest Dungeon, Outlast, Dying Light… I try not to buy games that have had a third company produce a Linux port. Those games tend to leave bugs in the Linux version. It would be nice if information about Linux friendly/unfriendly game developers were shared with the Linux gamer community, but unfortunately, such stories are not in the mainstream of the Linux gaming community.


I would like to point out that many, many linux versions of games have either major bugs or are almost unplayable

This is a mistake. I have played over 50 Linux games and many of them work fine. I find it unfortunate that Proton/Wine gamers tend to miss the opportunity to support the creators of games for Linux.




I need to write down the number of anal wrinkles on a sticky note and stick it to my computer monitor for analprint sign-in!


The pessimistic future that I currently foresee is that the Proton/Wine community will become accustomed to having the effort of Linux gameplay for non-Linux games pushed on them by the game companies, and will take it for granted. Hopefully they will remember that there is a huge gap between Linux-enabled games and Proton-enabled games.



I think it’s the most (generally) well-known E2EE cloud storage. There are several cloud storage services that offer better security/privacy if you simply want to upload your data, but I think it’s a great service for distributing files to an unspecified number of people on the Internet.




The site cache is stored in the data directory of Zeronet, not in browser. By the way, what is a hole site?


Cookies are disabled if you reject them, and there is no tracker. This site is great.


Oh, right. I’m sorry. My mistake.



I think the reason this post is getting downvoted is probably because the question doesn’t make sense. “Self-hosting” simply means “Doing self-host”, and the definition of “safe” in this question is unclear.


New windows? Not new tab?


There is no question that there is room for improvement in the recommendation algorithm, but the claim that Big Tech is being (unfairly) harsh on conservative information is worth considering. However, this is partly because conservative information on the Internet contains a lot of wrong information.






Whenever I see people in the customer service industry complaining on the Internet, I always wonder why they direct their frustration at the customers and not at the system of the institution where they are employed.


You should have at least posted it on /c/linuxmint.




Github is a repository for open source code, not the concept of open source itself. As I have said many times before, please do not confuse “open source” with “open source software”.


No. Open source is safer than closed source. The correct is: “Open source software is not necessarily safer than closed source software.” On such topics, we need to make a clear distinction between open source/closed source and open source software/closed source software.
