NEWS: Announcing a Manual for New Developers
In the past, new developers have had trouble learning how to contribute to #FreedomBox.

Thanks to Fioddor Superconcentrado for translating hundreds of pages and producing the first translation of the #FreedomBox user manual in Spanish.

Disney+ streaming uses draconian DRM, avoid
First of all, as always my opinions are my own, not those of my employer. Since I have 2 children I was happy to learn that the Netherlands would be one of the first countries to get Disney+ streaming. So I subscribed for the testing period, problem all devices in my home run Fedora. I started up…
