What do you think is the most secure?

Anyone bought the Go Incognito course from @techlore ? If yes, is it good?

Do you use an podcast listening app in the terminal? If yes, which one?

One of the most frustrating things about Linux development is how even if the source code is available, it’s practically impossible to learn what it’s doing, let alone develop for it. All the information is scattered around or either super outdated. It feels like there’s an in group that I’m just not invited to.

SerenityOS in my opinion has a strong and vibrant community. I dislike the fact they use Discord and it’s BSD licensed, but Andreas seems like a genuinely helpful person

What should I pick as my new laptop? An X230(with a bunch of mods including quad-core mod) or Librem 14? Librem 14 has better performance, but adds Intel FSP and a much worse keyboard. One is about $1000(not sure, maybe better) and the other one is about $1450

Over the last years I learned about things like Intel ME, libre hardware, homelab and privacy.
Buying libre hardware has better privacy (no intel ME) but has bigger costs, lower performance and has fewer options (easier to decide).
If I don't care about Intel ME and similar issues, I don't lose too much privacy, it will have smaller costs (comparing to the first), but it will be really hard picking hardware.

What should I choose for servers? I have the same issue and at laptops (X230 or other)

Do you authenticate to various websites with your Github, Google or Facebook account? Be careful, if you get blocked by these companies, there's virtually no recourse and you might have a serious problem!
