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.

Announcing the next #Guix Days!
Let's meet for two days in February to talk about Guix and its community! This event is part of a series of events this year that celebrate the tenth anniversary of Guix. More to come :)
We welcome any topic related to Guix, so don't hesitate to submit a talk! You have until February 8 to submit a proposal, but the sooner you submit, the sooner you'll be notified, and the more time you'll have. Don't wait!
If you're interested in the Twisted networking protocol, this is by far the best introduction: https://krondo.com/an-introduction-to-asynchronous-programming-and-twisted/. You won't even notice that this was written 13! years ago.
A quick search on Google reveals that there's approx. 2,195 commercial bank branches / 100,000 people. Let's just assume, that there's an equal amount of ATM machines.
I wonder what the collective energy usage of millions of bank branches and ATM's, and keeping those ATM's stocked with money, add up to?
Not to talk about the brainpower wasted on misleading customers, manipulation of markets and lobbying politicians to keep their eyes closed...
How does that compare with "crypto"?

PantherX desktop builds on LXQt and the 1.0.0 release of LXQt is available to all our users on "rolling" as of right now.
The LXQt desktop environment is available on virtually all Linux distributions and whatever you're running, I recommend you to give it a try: https://lxqt-project.org/release/2021/11/06/lxqt-1-0-0/.
For most distributions, it's yet another desktop, on PantherX, it's the only desktop - and get's all our attention.
Erhöhte Hardware-Anforderungen von Windows 11 sorgen derzeit für viel Diskussionen, da einige erst kürzlich gekaufte Systeme diese nicht erfüllen.
Dagegen sind die Hardware-Anforderungen der #OpenSource #Betriebssysteme moderat und können daher älterer Hardware zu Software mit aktuellem Patchstatus verhelfen. Für Desktop-Oberflächen gibt es darüber hinaus Alternativen mit explizit geringem Ressourcenbedarf.
So verbinden sich IT-Sicherheit und Nachhaltigkeit.

Last month the Netherlands passed #RouterFreedom into law: all ISPs must let customers choose their own Internet hardware and still provide tech support at no extra cost. That little box is your home-internet gatekeeper, and now in NL it can work for you https://fsfe.org/news/2021/news-20210805-01.en.html
