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:
I'm excited!
__Tribblix__ is next up…

@sehnsucht @neb while #FreeBSD is certainly distributed separately I see #Illumos as the base userland collection.

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!

This Norwegian university wasn’t kind on the US healthcare system. They later apologised for the “unfortunate phrasing” and changed the notice. Some people were happy about this, while others urged them to put it back.

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:
