Why can't Linux be called 'a success', the very moment that it helps one person? Why don't we call Mastodon or Peertube a success the very moment a tiny group of people uses and likes it?

The lengths we have to go to in order to protect our privacy from basic everyday things is ridiculous. We need fundamental change. Surveillance capitalism needs to die.

Fun fact: a business which pays its employees and pays its bills and still has money leftover is a viable business

Todays F1 Turkish GP was another show of the talent of Lewis Hamilton. A categorical win to seal his 7th world title! I hope a lot more is yet to come. Get in there, Lewis!

Fingers cross for a great race on Sunday🀞
