@thomas I'll take one too, please!
@lis hah, nice find.
Distrowatch gives you a pretty good idea, just how fractured open source really is: https://distrowatch.com/
@andreas same thing happened to me. Interesting... maybe this is just the first wave.
"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.
@rtwx sure, understood.
@rtwx @email@example.com @Jami I've been hoping for Jami to work for years (back then, it was "Ring"). We've tried it countless of times, with different people, and across different networks, and countries. If at all, messages are delivered much later, and calls usually fail (it worked once!).
However, that's the problem: Most of these applications are written by developers in countries, that both afford them the luxury of time (to develop it), and a greater degree, of freedom of speech. That means, they are never tested under less than "ideal" conditions, or in restrictive networks.
@firstname.lastname@example.org @Jami Jami is pretty awesome when it works though most of the time, it doesn't - particularly in countries with restrictive internet - which is roughly, half of the world (increasing).
We Have GuixSD (and so PantherX) on DigitalOcean from now!

The first post is about me getting over my irrational fear of makefiles. https://blog.neon.moe/2019/07/06/make.html
