Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.

Im vergangenen Steuerjahr habe ich einen Betrag X gezahlt. Zum Steuerbescheid hier in Australien gehört auch eine Auflistung, wofür der Staat mein Geld ausgegeben hat.

"Es wird Zeit, dass wir begreifen, was wir an Linux haben. Die Stunde des Linux-Desktops mag nie schlagen, es wird Windows niemals überflüssig machen und es wird niemals die Welt retten, aber es macht sie zu einem besseren Ort. Es wird Zeit, die Politik daran zu erinnern: Jede Steuermillion, die für eigene Fachkräfte aufgewendet wird, ist gut investiert. Wer Steuergelder stattdessen für proprietäre Software und Mietlizenzen ins Ausland überweist, verschwendet sie." heise.de/ct/ausgabe/2018-17-Ed

I think this level playing field is a main reason for the success of and why so many companies feel comfortable joining the development.

Recently I read often that is so bad, that nobody want to use it. I think this depends on the definition of use. People who are looking for some free beer to build their own proprietary stuff might feel sad because they can't (ab)use copyleft software. End users couldn't care less. People who want to get engaged typically like copyleft because it creates a level playing field, nobody have to fear that a competitor will take their investment and run away.

I'm sorry, but if your project uses IM (Telegram/Slack/Matrix/Whatever...) instead of the good ol' mailing lists, I'm not going to make (significant) contributions to it.

I've tried, but I just can't. Following a project that way it's ridiculously impractical a waste of time.

The search feature implemented in the user friendly client looks really nice. Hope this will arrive soon at the Debian sid repository, can't wait to use it. 😀 gnomegsoc2018.wordpress.com/20

Interesting read. I agree w/much of this analysis but disagree w/the catchall damnation of free & software. Yes the battle is as uphill as ever. We need principled development meaning strong , better employment agreements & functional nonprofits twitter.com/johnmark/status/10

I've just discovered the GSConnect Gnome Shell extension and my life has gotten infinitely better :)

extensions.gnome.org/extension

Works like a charm with my S9+ running LineageOS.

I’m truly blown away by the amazing work in this ecosystem that rivals and, at times, surpasses in execution and usability the efforts of multibillion-dollar corporate entities. Now to see if we can get folks to take a stand against surveillance capitalism and implement private defaults. I really hope so.
