`Map.fromList` considered harmful.

And other funny functions that silently discard data.

First time running any sort of AMD hardware – let alone the CPU *and* GPU – and gotta say, I'm blown away with the open source drivers.

It's night and day between AMDGPU and the proprietary nonsense Nvidia puts out. No Wayland compatibility issues and Cities Skylines is running the same/better in Arch than Windows (!!!).

I've started using the web content blocker I use (uBlock Origin) for blocking way more unwanted elements than just ads & tracking.

For example, I don't like sticky headers (they can be done right, see Android's AppBarLayout, but most of webpages get them utterly wrong). I don't like all these "please sign up so we can track you!" pop ups. And I don't like the "social sharing" buttons (I vastly prefer my system's native way of sharing content between apps).

This gets me a somewhat cleaner web experience.

@charlag Seen this in a lot of other FLOSS communities as well. Bottom line in most cases: "We need something that meets our needs and works reliably." 😕
