@cyrus angry nerds in FOSS do the same thing about telemetry as angry nerds in Star Wars did about the sequels.

I appreciate this WordPress philosophy overview. More products should be built with these principles in mind:

Works with little configuration and setup
Designed for the majority
Makes decisions, not options
Clean, lean and mean
Strives for simplicity

Question for the users out there who are much more knowledgable on all this than me...

I have a number of apps open on boot, but they all open as windows, so my screen is filled with windows that I then need to close.

What I would like to do is open these apps straight to the system tray, not as windows. In Ubuntu, it did this automatically. Can I do this in KDE?

If it helps, I'm running Kubuntu 20.04.

TIA!

Haven't done one for a while, so here's my - Kubuntu 20.04 running on my ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

So, hypothetically, if we were to throw some other stuff other than stickers into our store, would anybody care? Like t-shirts, hoodies, coffee cups, etc. Asking for a friend.

Yes, most WordPress sites are horribly bloated. That doesn't have to be the case though. Here's how I built my own WP theme that allows my homepage to be <100kb with only 4 HTTP requests. Yes, you can make a sustainable site with WordPress. chriswiegman.com/2021/04/creat

My Fediverse timeline is full of people doing cool things in collaboration with others.

My Twitter timeline is full of people competing with one another while performing their bullshit jobs.

Took Kubuntu for a quick spin this morning and found 2 issues pretty quickly that are immediate deal breakers for me:

1) There doesn't seem to be any way to connect to a hidden SSID from the GUI.

2) It won't allow me to set the super key as the shortcut for the app menu.

Am I missing something here, or is my KDE journey dead before it's begun?

Thinking about taking KDE Neon for a spin. Haven’t used KDE for a long time, but I prefer a Windows-like workflow (except with the taskbar on top).

Anything I should be aware of?

Note: not looking for recommendations of other distros.
