Not everyone have the ability to modify code, compile code (if the project is somewhat large), therefore it should be treated as privilege, not freedom. it's the platform's job to maintain software freedom for the users.

Hot take: on a software platform (browsers, OSes etc.), the more freedom developers get, the less freedom users will receive.

Update: The most famous unofficial Telegram client on Windows, Unigram, is planning to migrate to WinUI 3. [1]

Since I will not use AWS route 53 as my NS provider, the seemingly less inconvenient option I could choose is verify domain ownership by email, but:
On the general part, it seems like that ACM will resolve the subdomain until it gets a domain with MX record. [1]

Built a serverless Google Fonts proxy for my websites using Cloudflare, the loading speed seems good even when accessing it from China 😋

Although Windows Sandbox is good enough to run traditional Win32 programs with rock solid isolation, it's far less elegant and will consume far more resources compared to UWP apps, also the immersive "rail mode" mentioned in the overview video isn't documented AT ALL.

Apparently the situation is even worse: now MS is trying to let devs migrate to Windows App SDK by not providing support for .NET 5/6 and WinUI 3 to UWP projects.

If automount is disabled for a WSL distro, VS Code can't even install it's remote daemon to WSL properly, very weird

I have no idea what's going on but it seems like that Intellij IDEA has better support for WSL than VS Code???

I would like to say that if a game vendor can't implement anti-cheat measures properly, they should not implement it, or, don't develop a game on the first place.
