The German city of Bühl created "Palim! Palim!" as a platform on top of . The feedback they received is encouraging:

"Many citizens express their personal thanks to us and we have stopped counting how many municipalities have approached us with great interest. I believe that Free Software is currently experiencing an incredible boost and that the sensitivity for data sovereignty is growing rapidly."

Disregarding what it's actually about, the 's hardware concept is absolutely delightful.
It's rugged and has an e-ink display, so they just put the shipping info on the screen and throw it in the mail without any packaging.

: Terrible? Awesome?
I'm tempted to see the controversy similar to those around systemd and pulseaudio, both of which appear to me to be generally good.

@alatiera I don't hate the project, it's actually (and have been for more than I remember) my desktop.

But I prefer not being silent on this.

Blaming the US government is an option. Dreaming of FLOSS projects reconsidering where they're registered is another option. Dreaming of FLOSS projects using branches/subsidiaries/whatever outside the US to circumvent the US gov banning some individuals, is another option. And so on...

More or less in the same vein lists.debian.org/debian-legal/

It actually shocked me a bit. Newer GNOME apps (indicator: header bar) are fine on Wayland, but everything Qt (yes, all KDE stuff too) is stuck on XWayland because it ignores the relevant environment variable.

To find out whether an application is running under native or XWayland, open up xeyes and look where it follows you. When the eyes move you're over an window.

It is now punishing me for these toots by not caching compilations anymore and saying I can't restart debugging because of an error when I haven't changed anything.

Calendar weeks are nice. They make intuitive planning and estimations realy easy.
Great that out of all possible things *that* is where electronic calendar support is bad.

doing microcontroller programming where the microcontroller has a cache, and you have to write every important bit of code twice and A&B test it to see which version the cache prefers, like youre doing SEO and the processor is your fickle customer

developers be like: "No wonder you're experiencing bugs, you don't even delete the package cache, re-clone the repository, reboot and re-run these batch scripts every hour"

It's almost like they fixed too many bugs and had to add new ones to keep the balance.

It's worse than usual today. While switching tabs would usually help it doesn't now. When I try to save so I can discard the changes it does the wonderful windows something-happened-but-i-won't-tell-you-what-chime and nothing else (yes, I have checked other desktops).
