@unicornfarts I know. They are making clear that this is a PC, and therefore openness is expected.

Even as a advocate, I see the as something positive.

A GNU/Linux computer that could not only become mainstream, but also be the first PC interaction of someone coming from consoles (one of the most closed down devices one can imagine) is something to look forwards to.

The fact that is uses @kde Plasma for a change is also very nice.

Just a random thought on

A world made of #FreeSoftware is possible. A world without is not.

We thank all the #FOSS contributors that power the world around us, we thank you for fixing bugs, building and testing features and writing translations.

Free Software is the future, and we are proud to empower its #development.

Guess who finally bothered creating their own personal website?

Thanks @codeberg for the hosting!

I was so excited for things to come in when I saw that Tentacrul was joining the team.
But now seeing that one of Muse's first actions was adding telemetry (Google Analytics of all things), that excitement has severely dwindled.

After a long time that should've been far shorter, version 0.4.0 of has been released! 🎉

Using the new 3.3 version of the , this release comes with 5 new nanogames, music, and lots of QOL improvements! 🛠️

Have fun, folks!

Statement of FSF board on election of Richard Stallman (RMS):

Been playing for a while. Surprisingly comfy game, specially with the right playlist of songs to pair with it.

There's also the chance of unexpected time travel! Or more likely, just a oversight. 😉

is currently going through a very rough time. Not only -19 is impacting us heavily, but now the possible threat of (yet another) dictatorship looms above us.

We're getting hit with everything all at once...

The board voted unanimously to post the following statement on the FSF website: While our primary mission is freedom for software users, we want to be clear, the FSF board unanimously condemns misogyny, racism,and other bigotry as well as defamation, intimidation, and unfair attacks on free thought and speech.

As yet another attempt by the mob to outcast is happening with its open letter. I think it's good for me to share its counter-letter for those who are against it:

You can already find my name in there, if you want to add yours as well, now you know where to go. 🖊️

Happy to see :rms: back in the :fsf: board. Very glad that the support towards him was stronger than the cancellation attempt, in the end.

New guide with tips on how to design nanogames has just been released! 📚

And on the topic of Librerama, yes, the next version is taking a little longer to show up. I'm just waiting for the next 3.2 version of the to be released, which should be soon™.

Just recently, has reached 10 stars on its repository. For most this may be close to nothing, but for a little passion project that I expected nobody to pay attention, it means a lot. Thank you! ⭐
