I came across a site called All My Links recently. I really wouldn't recommend using it.

@kev Hm, I was under the impression you weren't a big fan of Keybase. This post surprises me. I appear to be wrong.

@mike I really like Keybase for their chat and profile amalgmation. I don't really see the point in the whole key sharing thing though - let's be honest, GPG is never going to make mass appeal.

Linux also will never widely appeal or who needs more than 64k RAM?

@sandro correct - Linux still doesn't have very wide appeal. Last time I checked it was something like 3% in the desktop space? That's pitiful.

The 64k thing isn't relavent here - that was said a long time ago before computers became mainstream. We're after the fact when it comes to GPG and it's still not really used.

@mike

@kev I've always thought the idea that Linux market share is bad is an interesting perspective. Apple's market share is less than 10% of the desktop market, and most people I know would say they're a major brand in the desktop market. Given, going from 3% to 10% is a large jump, but Linux is a lot closer to macOS than macOS is to Windows.

@sandro

@mike Don’t get me wrong, I love being in the minority and that’s part of the charm of Linux for me. Let’s be honest though, we’re destroying the server space. 😁

And developing Linux stuff on windows is still kinda a pain...

@kev
@mike
I was joking... There are things that just don't work on windows

@kev
My personal preference is S/MIME but even that I do not see ever having high adoption.

One of the problems is access to trusted Certificate Authorities, it is expensive to get a signed S/MIME key.

I was hoping DNSSEC could solve that, authenticating self-signed keys by fingerprint in DNS, but DNSSEC adoption is slow and the record in DNS would result in address verification for spammers.

Hopefully it will get solved.
