Cake day: Jan 14, 2021


Started using Zorin for the first time a few weeks ago. I’m a long time Linux user ( 7 years as a full time Linux user, and 3 before that on and off ). It’s really good, feels like a polished out and more reliable Ubuntu. The things they’ve done around theming make the look and feel be consistent. I know it’s mostly recommended to new users coming over from Windows world, but veterans should have a look at it as well, you might be surprised.

He annoys me so much. It’s awesome that he points out privacy issues and raises awareness. But he always points out things which are possible in theory as facts which are already happening at large. Like after some researchers showed that it might be possible to keep track of location data by using the gyroscope feature, he started to say that all non foss apps are doing that.

They mention it in the dev video. Not sure if they say here that they plan on having it ready before it hits the market in December. If not in that video, there is a video out there with a steam official saying exactly that (maybe the q&a or the Gabe video?)

EAC and BattleEye will be Proton compatible before this is launched.

It. Is. Happening

Gnome. Very sane defaults and flow, customizable. Also fully navigable both via mouse and keyboard, which works great for me since I navigate my system and apps using both almost equally. It’s gotten hate for relying on extensions, but for me it makes it feel modular and customizable.

Really cool and interesting research, crap title and article opens up with a wrong conclusion, as is tradition.

Don’t know what you mean by “specialist”. Also not sure if you’d be looking into getting into software dev, devops or something else. Either way, making your first step in the open source space as a contributor is always to contribute.

Look at the software you are using, check their git pages, see what kind of help they need and then see if and how you can help. This can be writing code, writing documentantion, proof reading documentaion, helping out with translations / documentation, artwork and much more.

Starting to contribute will help you get familiar with various git flows and make you feel comfortable in an open source dev environment. From there it kind of starts rolling.

Using JavaScript doesn’t put money in his pocket, using Brave does.

at this point huge governments like India and Pakistan would directly get involved in producing the vaccine.

That’s a very good point, thank you

I really don’t get this bullcrap excuse. They can easily say that they can’t force opensource the vaccine, because it’s the IP of the companies who created it. If you force it open source, then these companies will not have any incentive to work on a vaccine when ever the next pandemic happens. That would be a good excuse. This “other companies would not be able to safely produce it” is crap, considering that at this point huge governments like India and Pakistan would directly get involved in producing the vaccine.

Either dash to dock or dash to panel (depending on what I’m in the mood for), top icon plus.

And the Tweaks app is a must.

That’s all I use, really. Gnome is pretty awesome the way it is, really. I really like that it gives you all the tools to have both a mouse driven and a keyboard driven workflow. I switch between the two workflows all the time, it’s just awesome to have it there and so accessible at all times.

You can have a look at WPGen and at Vectorify da home!.

WPGen gets you a nice material design with the stripes option.

Yeah, he can be a stubborn dumbass. The only way to use Windows safely is how ExplainingComputers guy (excellent youtube channel btw) uses Windows 7 because he insists in using some ancient version of some ancient video editor - completely offline.

I think he’s a positive force as far as awareness goes. He will display ways of making windows, ios or google android safe because he is trying to appeal to a very broad audience. The peoole he wants to reach are mainly non technical.

As for the bad, he has a “leave me alone and don’t make me pay taxes” kind of vibe going for him, almost like an ancap. That is not the focus of his talks though, just heard him mention here and there. That kind of stance is common among tech media creators though, and I never saw him promoting that.

For me, he actually pushed me towards degoogling my life. Overall, he touches on lots of privacy - related topics and I feel that he is being 100% honest. Sure, he may be wrong in some cases, but it’s just being wrong, not malice.

He is stupidly stubborn though.

@robbtoLinuxReorganizing $HOME

.{name} is best case scenario as far as I’m concerned. Plenty of apps will default to $HOME/{name}.

That kind of crap should be marked as malware or something

That’s malware - like behaviour. Firefox should outright mark this website as dangerous. A website should not instruct its user to disable browser security features.

That’s how I started as well for the first few months before I went all in and set up my own on a VPS.

I feel that contabo is giving those specs as an average or as a max. The resources are clearly shared. Evenings, at around 8 PM my time (10pm germany time) the web interface is painfully slow. Rest of the day it’s either slow or good. I dont use the web interface often, so can’t give more detail, but it definitely fluctuates. It’s perfectly usable in my experience though, and it beats everything out there for that price.
