FLOSS quality and UX
that happens on org to individual level yes, but as I said if the tool company uses is not easy, and there is an easy option that people can use individuals will gravitate. as I said thats how google calendar got where it is. there were other calendar tools /integration tools organizations were using when it showed up.

Interesting OS security project: https://spectrum-os.org
* each app runs in a separate KVM container
* each VM is generated by a #Nix derivation
* graphics output is composited together via wayland/virtio
The idea is not too dissimilar to #QubesOS
, with the following main differences:
* Xen -> KVM
* Fedora/Debian -> #NixOS
* Xorg -> wayland/virtio

@vu3rdd Oooo, dang, bootstrap a Haskell compiler. That's the bonus question after the "C compiler" part, right? ;)
@vu3rdd Hmm, I think maybe I have (or something like it). Great stuff! I didn't know Guix was using it, cool.
(The one I am interested the most is this one, which unfortunately is going to be hard - https://elephly.net/posts/2017-01-09-bootstrapping-haskell-part-1.html)
@meejah I'm pretty sure YACC is an assembly-only compiler that's very easy to manually audit and is used to build a copy of GCC that's then used to build a GCC-built GCC, eliminating the Thompson issue.
Friends, my twitter account has been hijacked and is now spewing crap. I've reported it and I've done all I can to get it back but I'm still waiting... https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2020/11/16/i-lost-my-twitter-account/
It's kind of fun thinking of "bootstrapping" a trusted compiler from some old sources. Like some sort of master handing down their tools to the apprentice.
"Now, I bestow upon you my most trusted C compiler...artisanally compiled from ancient scrolls using only an 8088 chip"
The oldest thing I have is also the first C compiler I ever used, the ECO-C88 on 5.25" floppy.
p.s. Also I just looked up that Ken Thompson paper, and it credits " Unknown Air Force Document" for the idea (!!)
