All these developers going nuts about Windows getting the Linux kernel built in, when Linux has had the Linux kernel built in this whole time...

🤷‍♂️

So #Mozilla fixed the #Firefox certificate expiration issue that disabled all your extensions. All you have to do to get the fix is to check:

✅ Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla

✅ Allow Firefox to install and run studies

:gargron:

(Don’t forget to turn these off right after your extensions show up again. I restarted the browser but not sure if that’s necessary.)

Looking for technical help online sounds like this:

“Folks, my shower drain is clogged up, how do I unclog it?”

“Why don’t you move to a house with a bathtub?”
“Try not to clog it up in the first place, duh”
“Why would you even need to take your showers at home?”
“Just take out the things that are clogging the drain, how difficult is that”
“If you can’t maintain a shower stall in good conditions, why do you even clean yourself?”

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

Visual Studio Code, as most know it, is an example of non-free open-source software.

The downloads are released under the following license and not the one the source code is released under: code.visualstudio.com/license

The source code is modified before being compiled and then released on the VSCode website. That's why it's licensed MIT and not GPLv3, otherwise this would not be legally viable.

See here: github.com/Microsoft/vscode/is

Try VSCodium instead: github.com/VSCodium/vscodium

I must admit that it frustrates me when a useful #FOSS project uses SourceForge for their development... why? Seems to be the worst of all worlds - proprietary and lame for devs, with no network effect.

We are proud to announce the immediate availability of #Solus 4 #Fortitude, a new major release of the Solus operating system. Check it out at getsol.us/2019/03/17/solus-4-r
