This evening will be interesting. We will move one of our datacenter locations to a new DC. This also means that most of the U6 product will be offline for multiple hours. I hope there are not to many HDDs and power supplies that will not survive this journey.

Remember the GUIs of late 90s and 2000s? They had options, submenus, checkboxes. Lots of them. Maybe they weren't as flexible and versatile as some command line tools like FFmpeg, or xorriso, but they definitely did give users a lot to choose from, and they encouraged exploration.

Today's GUIs claim to have a better UX, but they're significantly dumbed down. They assume what the user wants, and discourage any sort of learning.

Is this what the next generation of hackers will grow up with?

Tolles Konzept von @fsfe und vielen anderen für eine kollaborative Plattform zur Entwicklung freier Software für öffentliche Verwaltungen. Unser Mitglied Do-FOSS ist auch dabei.

Als Trägerorganisation für den Betrieb der technischen Plattform bietet sich eine Genossenschaft an, gegründet von Kommunen und anderen öffentlichen Institutionen.

Eine echte Public Cooperative Partnership.

Die destruktiven Folgen des Saatgutverkehrsgesetz

"Das man keine selbst gewonnen Samen verkaufen, verschenken oder tauschen darf wusste ich bereits, mit Bußgeldern von 25.000 Euro (§60 (2) Ordnungswidrigkeiten) werden etwaige Verstöße geahndet. Das ist auch der Grund wieso alte Sorten immer mehr aussterben."
