So, sometimes software development/engineering can be a bit like exploration.
The analogy being that you set sail knowing, in general terms, what you are looking for but not how to get there, and what form what you seek will end up taking.
It can be fun, but it can also be difficult forming the result into something of quality.
Alright here's my thorough explanation of why we don't want to ship Flathub by default: https://github.com/elementary/appcenter/issues/1748#issuecomment-963424996
This is one of the most well designed, awe inspiring examples of Open Source software.
The question is of course: "what is ensembles?"
Go download it as a flatpak, or even better, install it from elementary OS and run it there.
Asking for financial help.
Hey folks, I’m hoping this is the last time I need to ask for help, but right now I need it. I recently got started on ADHD medications and I’m hoping that will help me get on track soon. But in the meantime, I need help.
Job hunting has produced nothing for me, and don’t have much money left. I don’t have enough to pay rent or bills right now. If you can spare it, I would really appreciate if you could help me out.
If you know of any job opportunities, I would also appreciate it if you would DM me.
I am so happy with my #keychron k2 keyboard.
I was first looking at the #system76 Launch Configurable Keyboard, but sadly finding it too expensive, I decided to do some googleing. And while I'd still have preferred that nice slab of Open Source CNCed aluminium, The keychron does an EXCELLENT job at $107 (that is incl. shipping)
I'd never thought a mechanical keyboard would make THAT much of a difference. But it really does.
So apparently Microsoft broke ALT+TAB functionality in windows with a new update. ouch.
Also: you know someone made a great app, when you hit the usual shortcut for it, and nothing happens, and you try again and realize: shit! i didn't install it yet.
Then i realize it hasn't been ported :O
I am speaking of course of Ideogram by @cassidyjames
No, this is not meant as a poke to give that attention straight away or anything, but as praise for an app so well written that I just found myself taking it for granted. now THAT is good UX
My thanks goes out to the #elementary team, Cassidy, Dan, David (and the rest). I'm on elementary OS 6 now, and I am quite happy with many of the improvements, and then there are certain new ones that will take some getting used to. But Y'all have done a great job.
And yet again, I am happy that you dare go a new way, even with all the criticism out and about with you breaking with old ways of doing things on the Linux
Watched the first episode of #Loki with the missus last night. It's looking pretty interesting, and I must admit I had a *wow* experience when seeing a certain actor.
