/me is currently playing #whackabug with #firefox on #illumos with what compiler is that browser normally even compiled??? It now fails with -Werror=sign-compare before it complained about a macro type problem.

Jitsi Meet: How many video participants in a single conference room can a self hosted server support? Didn't find a good answer so I tried it out myself:

I don't know if it'd work (on a chromebook), but I just live-booted an **illumos** distro (Hipster) and felt the power surge under the hood. This is software engineering at it's finest, I suspect.
__ZFS, DTRACE, Zones__, etc. tightly integrated into it's core (not grafted on top like in the BSDs.
Absolutely no sysD.
Also not a big community so that reflects in software selection.
RMS would **NOT** approve of this :thinking_rms:

__Tribblix__ is next upโ€ฆ

@sehnsucht @neb while #FreeBSD is certainly distributed separately I see #Illumos as the base userland collection. I always wondered why the post-Solaris world split into multiple distributions (one might argue BSDs did the same) - it could have been a very powerful offering were it a single system. The only one I have played a bit longer with was #SmartOS, a very compelling system.


It saddens my heart that more people haven't mentioned this:

Hello world!

We're slowly making progress towards our first product. It's a standard 65% PCB with hotswap sockets. It's powered by the open source software QMK and it features a standard ISO-layout to fit as much people as possible.

Our goal is to make custom keyboards easy and available for everyone.

i kinda need help!

i want an encrypted voice and/or video calling application that
- works (at least) on linux and preferrably android
- is reliable
- is floss!

pls boost and say things you think might fit!

Heard of @fdroidorg and still wonder what it is? Here's a 10 minute video on PeerTube you might wish to watch, including some recommended apps you can find on F-Droid:
