In 2010, Eben Moglen made a bold claim:

"Mr. Zuckerberg has attained an unenviable record: he has done more harm to the human race than anybody else his age."

And people laughed.

But it turned out to be a prophetic claim.

@tootbrute I can't yet wean off my primary server until some more heavyweight systems are supported (namely Nextcloud and GitLab, maybe Plex or Kodi), but I've found it extremely promising to use (and easy to install/configure) lighter-weight services such as web-hosting, proxies and VPNs, contact/calendar sync, etc. In fact, the kit they offer using the Olimex board handles a surprising number of simultaneous services given the small form factor.

Though is listed as a distribution, it remains a pure blend, which means that its software is distributed directly through Debian's repositories. The fact that pure blends can achieve distribution status in their own right is a testament to Debian's strength.

It's considered a rite of passage for an operating system to be listed on DistroWatch. We're very proud that has finally gained this honor!

Yup, is recognized as a distribution of Linux. 😎

Just stumbled over the stunning talk given by Eben Moglen about behavior, attention, privacy and freedom at #republica19 in May this year.

I really liked his point that it's not required to invent new stuff to fix what's wrong today but "just" to undo stuff that went wrong in last years. Aligned very well with the idea of #indieweb and the fediverse. And he even mentioned #freedombox as a concrete solution.
