You don't need Windows, you need an Operating System. You don't need Microsoft Office, You need an Office Suite.

Which means that in Windows 12, there will be no Windows Media Player. I guess the more Microsoft move up the version of Windows the less Windows 7 apps will be available. Lol.

I realize that there's one matter YouTube viewers, typically new to Odysee have. Their reason for not spending much time on Odysee is because the big YouTubers are not there. Not speaking of GNU/Linux, crypto or any other content creator that has been affected by YouTube's policy. All we have to do is educate those big YouTubers about the YouTube partner program for Odysee.

The ONLY reason why some big content creators still have a YouTube Channel and just sync their content with Odysee is just because of the huge viewership. Hence, how popular the platform is. As much as I prefer to consume FOSS over proprietary software and services, I just have to use FreeTube ( for some YouTubers that do not sync their content with Odysee. ☹️

What if a developer created an antivirus application called "Windex" for Microsoft Windows? πŸ€”

Does anyone here know how to get a RSS link from SoundCloud just like how I could easily get one from YouTube?

@derek In the video that you created 'Mozilla No Longer Supports A Free Internet', I just want to know, based on what you said about the blog post, if it's going to affect users that has a Firefox account and still uses Firefox?
What's the worst thing that can happen to these users?
I already understand why you don't want to use Firefox anymore, but I just want to know what could happen to other users that still use Firefox and have a Firefox account?

2020 has been a great year for me even though it had many challenges, I am grateful. I've been using FOSS since early 2020 up until this moment and I just want to say thanks to all of the FOSS developers for your hard work and dedication in creating and maintaining the projects that you offer to the community. Happy New Year to you all. πŸŽ‡ πŸŽ‰
