@mike's recent blog post mentioning old screenshots makes me suddenly wish I had backups from my Linux experiences twenty years ago.

So, I'd like to make a public request for your oldest FOSS screenshots.
Please reply here with alt text describing the programs seen, running, your setup/environment, etc, and put the year in the body/comment.

This should be hella fun.

KINDLY BOOST! 😁

Auto-upgrades on all operating systems haven't been turned on yet because we're gathering more data about a few bugs.

It's an overly-cautious approach, but we believe it's the right thing to do....

Have you met @alecaddd?

He can also be seen doing live coding sessions on his YouTube channel. youtube.com/c/AlessandroCastel

He's a great person to follow if you want a glimpse into the future of Thunderbird.

Plus he's just a really cool person.

Hello! This thing still on? Haven't logged on in a while. The school year hasn't been great for free time.

Bitcoin is very much like Apple's CSAM detection. A noble idea implemented in probably the worst way possible.

This is what happens if you put an inefficient prototype into production environment. Bitcoin was a proof of concept for decentralized ledgering system. It served its purpose, we should leave it at that and make a better system from what we learned.

Now that’s dope. #Gnome / gnome-shell-extensions comes with a watermark extension that can be tweaked 😲 – it usually shows the dist logo but can show any image. (beko.famkos.net/t/1qfr)

a friendly reminder (mostly for myself) that grace and understanding is very lacking in our world. Thanks for allowing me to share ideas and thoughts in this wonderful space! Let's keep the good stuff going.
