#OSTree deduplication and delta updates are amazing.

Sure, #Flatpak apps are a bit big as they bundle their libraries…

But then I just updated Totem, a 8.5MB app, and the total download for the update was… 1.0KB. 🤩

A new #Fedora release is always a good reminder to use 3rd party apps as flatpaks if possible. They're not influenced by changes in the system that happen during system upgrade. This time #Slack client doesn't work with F29 glib 2.28, #VLC from #RPMFusion has broken dependencies.
#Flathub to the rescue ➡️ flathub.org

A new Linux smartphone is coming!

With an affordable price, too. Pine64 is behind this device running KDE Plasma.

KDE Neon creator Jonathan Riddell revealed this at Open Source Summit and it will be called PinePhone.

You can expect this open source Linux smartphone to cost $100+ for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.

2 years ago I saw the need to have a website to browse and install apps. After contacting @gnomealex@twitter.com I began to work on what is currently the main flathub.org website.

I'm glad I found such an open and encouraging project to contribute to!

There is an open source project everybody is talking about. You identify some important flaws that nobody seems to care about.

Choice: Contact the developers of the project and offer your help

Or: Create a website blaming the project's flaws
