KDE (the developers of a popular Linux desktop "Plasma") gets $100 000 from Pineapple Fund!

It's worth looking through the list of instances this guy has donated to. Imagine the paradise we would live in if everyone with excessive wealth was this generous?

He writes: "because once you have enough money, money doesn't matter".

Are there any European history nerds on Masto? I can't find any good info about Archduchess Elisabeth Marie of Austria, "The Red Archduchess" who renounced her title, joined the Social Democratic Party and married a teacher who was sent to Dachau.

Where to start besides really vigorous Google searching to find more info about her? I've found photos and the same few paragraphs about her life, most of it is just repeats of Wikipedia.

Do I need to re-start my German language studies?

This is the kind of innovation these draconian contracts and DRM nonsense is preventing

It needs to stop

Oooh resonate.is released the new beta of their #stream2own player. Looks nice and a new option to hide specific artists/songs. I'd also like a hide by genre tag for those experimental noise tracks, personally

It's been a while since I last explored after-market #Android firmwares. CyanogenMod was the last.

Besides #LineageOS, what else are folks using? 📱
