The next post in my, "Finding an Alternative to Mac OS X", series is up: A Year Away From Mac OS http://bitcannon.net/post/a-year-away-from-mac-os/ #FreeBSD #Linux https://mastodon.social/media/r2sPvuh7RVCGH164224
> each app living within their own little iframe ... While this approach has the disadvantage that we have many duplicate instances of different versions of libraries, increasing the size of the app, but it offers the massive advantage that introducing a library is a discussion between a few people instead of decision that involves ~100 people and their various needs.
Fuck 160 million monthly users with bloat because 100 devs at the same company can't communicate...
I did my first OpenBSD port today, there are corners to be rounded and further tests to be made though!
It was not that hard given than sysutils/screenfetch was already in the ports, i just had to adapt things.
I'm going to write a lot more about this in the coming days but the most important takeaway from my first few days of switching my main development machine to Linux (Pop!_OS 18.04)?
I. Do. Not. Miss. The. Mac. One. Bit.
Everything Just Works (tm), including my USB-C-only LG external monitor (which doesn't even work with Laura's older MacBook Pro), Magic Trackpad, etc. And there are things I actually enjoy more about the experience. Never thought I'd be writing this about Linux. Exciting times!
had a somewhat disappointing realization; as much as I love building my #cyberdeck around a raspberry pi or similar somewhat-open hardware platform, wrangling the battery board and figuring out an HDMI display is probably going to result in something heavier and less reliable than just repurposing an existing all-in-one device designed for Android.

*Linux Laptop Wiki [Rebooted]*
The aim of the website is to provide a central wiki to post experiences with Linux on the model of laptop / notebook you're using.
An attempt to 'reboot' the abandoned and spammed linlap dot com which is now unusable.
Please consider participating on building a new "HQ" sending in your model / experiences!
Any help appreciated!
“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”
If you want to support an open source federated video platform, now is your chance:
The main goal has been reached so the funding will definitely be paid, but there are stretch goals and the more raised now the faster the development will proceed.

YAML: probably not so great after all https://arp242.net/weblog/yaml_probably_not_so_great_after_all.html
Looks like there is even more competition on the homebrew console market now. This one looks pretty nice: powerful and affordable.
And the best part is that the library I wrote for µGame should work on it without modifications.
