A quick look at the 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.

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: lxqt-project.org/release/2021/.

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.

#TIL: Autochrome photography.

Dates to ~1907 -- 1935. It's a colour photography process. The colour can be enhanced by modern techniques, but represents the original colour captured by the process, it is not colourised B&W or hand-tinted.

PantherX Beta 3 goes live with 51 issues closed: community.pantherx.org/t/panth.

We are already working on Beta 4, which will finally include an automated installer. Stay tuned 😉

Who cares about web performance when you're stuck on the cookie dialog for 10 seconds. Why can't the browser A) tell the site your preferences, B) enforce your choices as much as technically possible and C) optionally report sites that do not behave

So complicated?

LXQt finally has a new Twitter account twitter.com/lxqt_project. You know what to do! Convince them to join Mastodon too 😄

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 fsfe.org/news/2021/news-202108

With IPv4's now costing in the range of $40 isn't it time to make the switch?

»Flameshot«

Wer ein mächtiges Tool für Screenshots sucht, seine Screenshots direkt bearbeiten möchte, dem kann ich »Flameshot« was obendrein noch Open Source ist, nur empfehlen.
Die verbesserte Verpixelung in der aktuellen Version überzeugt jetzt auch.

Gibt es für folgende Distributionen:
Linux, MacOS und Windows.

I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.

Firefox Nightly (90.0.2) is looking more and more like iOS. I don't think I like all those curves ...

PantherX OS Beta 2 is coming in approx. 7 days. Here's a sneak-preview of what to expect community.pantherx.org/t/panth

Depending on the region you look at, anywhere from 20-90% of the population has a vitamin D deficiency. vitamin-d-covid.shotwell.ca. Either supplement or get some sunshine!

It's hot and Bassdrive is humming. This probably marks my 13th year on this channel. Perfect for programming. archives.bassdrivearchive.com - Friday's are especially great, though there's gems every day, at every hour! There's a live-stream too bassdrive.com. If you don't enjoy this immediately, sleep on it ... try it again, and you'll be hooked 🤪

It's arguably one of the worst distractions to have Mastodon notifications on your desktop. Luckily I'm not that popular.

Email Protection by DuckDuckGo - Sounds good in theory, but do you really want all your emails to go trough another provider? Who's responsible for deliverability? What if they are running out of funds, and that email stops working? What if someone compromises the service? Why not just use (for ex.) Fastmail, and add an alias, and use the built-in SPAM filter?

Sorry, I don't get it.
