A quick look at the #PantherX Desktop: Here we've got the Menu with global search that can dig into PDF's and other documents, Hub with all online accounts and recent messages and of course System - at the top, right - with clear connection information; supporting all modern standards, including special cases such as OpenVPN with stunnel.
"Some communities like to think of themselves as “perfectly tolerant”. This means that they would tolerate people that take actions to make marginalized people uncomfortable. When a community does this, they are actually being intolerant, and enabling abusers."
At last, someone in the FOSS community took the time to state the obvious: bigots are not welcome. Thank you.

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?
* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.
* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.
* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.
* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
We Have GuixSD (and so PantherX) on DigitalOcean from now!
I started a blog
The first post is about me getting over my irrational fear of makefiles. https://blog.neon.moe/2019/07/06/make.html
A stark contrast: Apple is bound to release a new MacOS on a yearly basis, no matter if longstanding bugs have been fixed, or the OS is ready overall - in most cases, .1, .2, .3 patches bring much needed stability, while engineers are already pushing for a completely new version.
At Panther, we're not tied to investors expectations and share price, so we can take our time: Release when it's ready.
Bear with us, we'll get there!
... and subscribe to our newsletter; we need all the mental support, we can get: https://www.pantherx.org/#subscribe. I promise, I'll send out the first, soon! That's it ;) - Good night!
Since I'm already here: GNU Guix 1.0.0 is out. A Linux, like no other; Check it out - You Must!: https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/blog/2019/gnu-guix-1.0.0-released/
Thanks to a kind fellow, who (apparently) found what we do, kind of interesting, we've now got traffic flooding in from Hackernews: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19834234
Still alive, just busy coding! #PantherX
Anyone any luck with a BCM4360 wireless on #Guix?
@horia would you consider offering set-up (and occasional service) for a caesonia install on openbsd.amsterdam?
If you're in #Brussels, this is probably worth a look: Meet Guix at FOSDEM
"For the second time, we are also organizing the Guix Days as a FOSDEM fringe event, a two-day Guix workshop where contributors and enthusiasts will meet." https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/blog/2019/meet-guix-at-fosdem-2019/
Maybe it's time for someone to have a second look at: GuixSD: mastodon. An experiment in theoretic packaging. https://n0is.noblogs.org/post/2017/04/18/guixsd-mastodon-an-experiment-in-theoretic-packaging-very-early-draftthoughtcollection/ #GuixSD #Guix
