Distrowatch gives you a pretty good idea, just how fractured open source really is: https://distrowatch.com/
"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.
It is proven! I am franzs on Keybase: https://keybase.io/franzs/sigchain#24cc0011fe3ef485fc4cfa865749f2fd1e222a0a1cda47e72075cd93ae355ddb0f
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
