@auramun I'm using LineageOS + microG, and F-Droid as an app store.


I'm also working for a company that is developing an open alternative to the Google ecosystem.


Since I have gotten into software development, I have also been getting into and exploring Linux. I installed Parallels on my Mac and run Fedora in it. What some things to learn or start exploring/doing with Linux?

It is in our best interest as developers and users to work together in the fediverse.

Pixelfed is not competing with Mastodon or any other fedi project. The amount of MAU the whole fediverse has is under 1m users. A drop in the bucket compared to centralized, corporate, social media.

(MAU = Monthly Active Users)

I don't disagree with Tim Cook, but this also irks me. I have no belief that Apple has any concerns for my privacy or anybody else's privacy beyond the fact that it hurts Google and Google competes with Apple.

What are your guys thoughts on Apple's Differential Privacy? I came across their documentation for it and I hear people saying it's worse then regular data collection or it's better. What is your guys take on it? Here is the doc


Hi everyone,

I'm Dylan. I'm a recent grad and a beginner dev. I've had a passion for technology since I was kid. I currently have a Mac running Mojave. But I am debating on dual booting Fedora. I am starting to study blockchain and decentralization.
