@wholesomedonut "Vim improves workflow once you learn it" should of course be understood in the same context that learning how to operate an industrial grade CNC router drastically improves the workflow (and output) over a handheld router.

No one should read that sentence and think they can sit their Uncle Jessie down and have him write his (surely Oscar-worthy) screenplay in Vim. Vim is an industrial grade programmer's editor. If you don't need that, don't use it.

I firmly believe that if the programmers, users, sysadmins and designers of the FOSS world want to actually see their desires of a more open world market and society come to life, they’ve gotta stop being so militant about it.

I’m not a fascist for using Microsoft because Win10 and O365 fulfill my use cases, anymore than you are a fascist or a greed stricken capitalist for buying food at McDonalds because you’re coming home late from work instead of a local market.

That rhetoric is poisonous.

Please stop spreading fud like Docker services using more resources and coming with a huge overhead.

It's not a virtual machine, it's really just a (fairly convenient) frontend to a bunch of kernel features, like namespaces & cgroups.

If you don't want a container-like abstraction on your system, that's totally fine, but please, don't make up silly arguments against it.

Here's my favorite git feature that no one knows about:

You can reference commits using the commit message instead of the hash. The ":/" syntax accepts a regex that matches any part of the commit message, returning the youngest matching commit.

If any devs are interested in a side project; I’m still up for building a chat app with the amazing UX of Instagram Threads, but running on matrix.org/ (which is the future) instead of Facebook (which is the devil)

Remember that recent blog post from the lead developer of Signal exploiting a vulnerability in an old version of FFmpeg? Well Audacity was using a vendored version of FFmpeg 2.2.2, which was released 2014-05-04, until 4 days ago.

The more I look around the Audacity GitHub repository, the more concerned I am. They have a one line pull request fixing a security vulnerability which has received zero response from a maintainer in 6 months and now they're trying to vendor libcurl. This is software distributed to millions of people. WTAF? github.com/audacity/audacity/p

Linux was invented to stop family members from asking you to fix their computer.

When they know your answer is gonna be "Lemme install Linux on it" they don't ask.

@datenschutzratgeber @e_mydata to make sure potential users can "trust" that "privacy-respecting" is more than a slogan (no offense meant): open-source would be a must. And ideally, any "online functionality" comes via a module one can load separately ("online addon"). That combination I can imagine as a "door opener" in the "privacy scene". Would be awesome to have! And please also consider TTS :awesome:

Would you use a privacy-respecting assistant on your smartphone (similar to Siri, Alexa etc.)?

Background: The people behind the #Android-based operating system @e_mydata plan an integration of their future AI service called "#Elivia" as well as an offline speech recognition software as they explain on Medium: gael-duval.medium.com/e-2021-t
