If governments of the world realised (as I've often suggested) that they should be funding critical digital #FOSS infrastructure, instead of OAuth run by mega corporations, slurping our data with their surveillance capitalism bizmodels, we'd be using Mozilla Persona and our lives would be better for it. Huge opportunity missed. Sadly, by failing to take it, you've thrown further fuel onto the fire currently razing our national and personal sovereignties.

@LateNightLinux @JoeRess @felimwhiteley @degville @8none1 here are a few screenshots of my #xfce setup. Main thing I do is put panel on the left and use docbarx plugin so I can have "grouped" window icons. Admittedly #cinnamon is my primary DE but we make sure XFCE there for light-weight users also.
Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....
When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
Interesting read about why Docker failed.
Sample: "The former CEO notes that all of these factors created 'natural tensions' as Docker grew. 'We wanted to build great community and monetize the developer product...' "
I can't decide whether the model of open source products that get VC funded and then go broke in 10 years is a good thing for open source or a bad thing. We get to keep the code, so that's nice, but that fever around monetizing open code....
I tried Groovy this weekend and enjoyed it. However, I discovered that there isn't a great way to distribute a script to other users. As far as I can tell, you just have to tell your users to install Groovy, and to run 'groovy ./myscript'
Am I missing something obvious? I was hoping for a better end user experience. I've tried scriptjar and a few other hacks. I want to avoid anything too hacky, because that defeats the point.
Carl #Sagan was prophetic. U.S. has, indeed, plunged further into darkness. https://www.patheos.com/blogs/godzooks/2021/09/carl-sagan-prophetic-u-s-science-religion-christianity-atheism-reason/

I've finally gotten around to trying k3s on my CentOS Pi array, and so far it's the best Kubernetes-on-ARM experience I've had.
An album recommendation for #BandcampFriday
@klaatu and his amazing podcast GNU World Order helped me discover this wonderful album so thank you Klaatu.
Hello fediverse! I made a new #bandcamp page for my more experimental music and I just released my first track under the name "the_emergent":
Happy #BandcampFriday, everyone!
It finally happened.
