You know what: it'd be great if people who need accessibility didn't go around calling other people's work "trash". I get it: accessibility is hard, and required for people to use a computer—but you know how proprietary platforms deal with it? They pay developers. You know what Linux users do for it? They fucking whine about it, and then they go out and say that any effort made is trash.

Well, guess what: stuff doesn't fix itself.

Hey, our audio editor is on hiatus, as most of us moved on to other projects. Our GitHub organization now mostly hosts previously unmaintained audio libraries that were brought up to speed with the 21st century.

A very cool person has been silently working on another fork, Saucedacity alone, ever since a bit after the time we popped around. We're discussing on how to carry over our work to their project.

If you want to see me and some KDE developers discuss the need to get serious about building real platforms, check out this week's Open Tech Will Save Us stream, hosted by @thibaultamartin and @matrix.

Nice to learn more about you. This bit caught my attention 😊

My favorite tool is definitely Workbench, an application that allows me to compose GTK interfaces with XML/Blueprint, JavaScript, and CSS, seeing the results in real-time. This tool has simplified my life by reducing my time drastically. It is an essential tool for those who develop applications with GTK and I recommend it even to those who are new to GTK.

Please join us and #GiveUpGitHub by visiting and while you are still on #GitHub, adding information to your README that you do not agree with GitHub's policies and monopolized place in our community.

Happy to see this published! I think so many people who use GNOME don’t realize the positive impact Endless has had on it over the years, and will continue to have moving forward.
