[John fires up Ubuntu computer]

John: OK, let's play some music

[Fires up Spotify in web browser]

Spotify: Oh, sorry but U need DRM enabled to play music

John: yep I'm back in the Open Source world, time to check FunkWhale

Making a mental note to start the day on Mastodon and Pixelfed, which are surprisingly free of drama. (Well, compared to birdsite/insta-hell.)
And I want to prioritize Open Source Social Media after all.
