We've had loads of new folks join Fosstodon, over the last few months. There are plenty of articles/blogs on FOSS friendly alternatives out there, and suggestions for such but, it'd be nice to hear from the community. What apps/alternatives are you using and why? What would you suggest for someone who's new to the FOSS scene? What have you discovered, based on your experiences?

Let's give our newer/unfamiliar members some community input and a few "pro tips" 😉

Anyone here using it or used it recently who can comment on their experience?

Hey Fediverse! Do you use git (or Mercurial or Darcs)? Etherpad? Homebrew? Inkscape? quemu? Wine? Maybe even coreboot?

These are just a few of the projects for which the Conservancy project provides administrative support. The projects rely on Conservancy, and you rely on the projects.
