So there is this peer to peer, chat system. It has no tracking or ads, it doesnt require any infrastructure to be 100% effective. You can use it with your computer and type to folks, similar to IRC. You can literally run a BBS over it and many actually do.

Its called Ham Radio.

@bob I wonder why businesses still rely on Windows. I also have to use Windows at work. Image how much time and money could be safed by using Linux instead.

If you care about your users privacy, don't use Intercom.

Just discovered this - v9999.25; Is it safe to assume, this is stable now?

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.

We're looking for talented developers with extensive Qt5 (+ ) experience in , . Apply and join us now: sedv.org/jobs/apply/embedded-s

It's hardly shocking that #IntegrityInitiative - working with and paying the media including #TheGuardian - claims to be protecting democracy while doing exactly the opposite. Like #microsoft boasting #security while adding back doors http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Microsoft_and_the_NSA

I'm so tired of Windows. Unfortunately at work, I'm not able to run Linux on my desktop. I'm thinking seriously about asking for an Apple computer next time, but I'm really torn. I'm NOT a fan of Apple. They annoy me on a visceral level. I can't decide if putting up with Apple is a better path than putting up with Microsoft. Neither is a good option in my mind. Maybe I'm just short tempered today because it's Monday?
