Apparently if you want anything remotely close to accurate colors on your Linux machine, avoid Electron and Chromium-based browsers. The left is Slack, the right is the Photos app. What the HECK is Electron doing to Bubblegum 500 in this screenshot??

I'm glad slack doesn't show edit history. It would show whenever I need text formatting that I edited the message like 50 times in a few seconds before I Google how to get the particular text formatting I wanted. You would think I'd have all the markdown rules memorized eventually but nope.

There HAS to be a better understand about how large FOSS projects function than the current nonsense.

One dude in GNOME foundation writes a blog post is NOT the same as "GNOME decides to do X" - its rather part of a debate on how to solve an issue they have.

This is why often projects hide their internal debates away (making contributions etc harder) instead of talking openly about them - the blowback of having to explain, again, what a FOSS project is and how.

GNOME's new icon project is 1) ambitious but 2) with the suggestion to only keep symbolic icons and one massive full feature icon that will scale - makes me worry.

Icons are ALL scalable - all graphics are scalable it's a question of exactly what pixel grid.
Doesn't matter if your icon is huge and scaled down, it becomes blurry at "off resolutions" where the icon slips between the pixel grid and the system has to guess which color goes in what pixel.

Feature request protip: don't over generalize things. “Add this feature, it's very important to many people,” makes it HARDER to analyze & consider. “I would like this because I am using the software in this way,” reveals much more valuable info & can lead to a better solution.

Open source projects get a constant stream of issues, support requests, & questions on social media. Instead of swearing at maintainers, assuming malice, & telling them you're going to go use something else after experiencing a single bug, maybe take two seconds to have a dialog.

I made a hamburger style menu without JavaScript using a checkbox for this . I know it's been done before but I'd never done it until now. I had a lot of fun with it. I might go back and try to add animations to it if I get some time. codepen.io/micahilbery/pen/VBa
