#introductions Almost PhD in economics (international & tourism) studying productivity related to deep ICT use and FOSS.
Manjaro user, but testing some other as Arco or Deepin that I use as backup.
Interested in IP/PBX FOSS as Asterisk+Kamailio and enterprise software as Twiki or Apache offbizz, Casandra and others.
Remember when the Web was more than "five giant sites, filled with screengrabs from the other four?" (h/t @tveastman). The EU's new Digital Markets Act proposal wants to bring back all that lost diversity. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/12/eus-digital-markets-act-there-lot-room-improvement #DMA
I don’t doubt that Apple’s new MacBook is a technological marvel. As they now make the OS, CPU and GPU, I believe their claims of much improved performance while also using less energy.
It seems to me like the software is going to be even more closed than before. Now you can’t even install Windows or Linux on their computer anymore. And it seems like Apple will be able to prevent you from installing an app they don’t want you to install.
I want that computer, made by someone else.
Apple is about to take "walled garden" to astronomical level. everything inside a closed chip. no expandable ram, no expandable storage, with the difference between "air" and "pro" being battery life an a touch bar. Total control. Control of everything you do, and run, on your computer. Advice.....
RUN. Get out while you still can!!
Pardon me, but all the noise about the new Apple M1 chip and it's performance is quite unbelievable. I found a Geekbench test where the A14X chip is pitted against an i9 Macbook and the Apple chip beats it. Apparently it even beats my AMD 3700X in single thread performance (as if). I find it hard to believe that Intel is doing such a bad job, that Apple can overtake them with an ARM based chip in performance.
Not log ago, I thought that the whole NAZI thing was fading away.
I didn't give it much thought. Perhaps a few old misguided rednecks hanging out at their still in the backwoods recalling the days of their youth swapping stories of the cousins they kissed... etc...
But NoOOoo. It's whack-a-asshole all over again.
So.. What was the point of that war we fought in the 40's?
I find it a disgrace to forget what what the fallen were fighting for.
Freedom And Liberty for ALL!

I've just received the #pinetab, tried ubports, and it is not even capable of login to youtube with its browser.
Tried #manjaroARM, that let me install even chromium that does not work, but phosh configuration is not polished yet - for instance not for kodi -.
I write you to ask if you have found some image /DE that works fine.
thanks in advance.
1.- Your image is outdated - one update, and it was just downloaded -
2.- The portrait mode is backwards the keyboard, or I did not find the way, if there is other, to change it.
3.- I do not find the way, not even from terminal to change username and password - the settings also do not work -
PS: running from 64Gb SD card.
For the folks who run #VoidLinux and are also experienced or at least knowledgeable of #ArchLinux, what are the things that attracted you and/or keep you on Void? Lack of Systemd? The package manager? Arch not anti-cool enough anymore?
Do you miss the AUR?
I'm not going to argue anyone's opinion. I am curious to hear.
October News Update:
- New Pine Store
- #PinePhone @ManjaroLinux CE box + image
- PinePhone Qi charging, NFC & keyboard
- #PineTime progress & more
Almost PhD in economics - international & tourism - studying productivity increase if you use deeply ICTs and more FOSS ones.
