Apple is removing all the cool stuff from MacOS.
Automator "will not work with future versions of MacOS"
AppleScript in many of the newer versions of apps is being severely limited
QuickTime doesn't know how to edit videos anymore (QT7 was the last one that could)
It's moving away from cool computer things to nice polished commercial software. :(
An actual, real, major government (France) is using end to end encrypted, non-proprietary software (Matrix), and... oof.
I try not to say this because, hey, open source, if something is wrong I should fix it myself, but...
Matrix *isn't* good. We're blowing our chance to make government more secure and transparent through FOSS software. What government will want to adopt FOSS after hearing things like this?
@Matter the solution is whatever is decide it is, since I’m the user. I have absolutely no inclination to mess around trying to bypass Google’s controls.
People say “iPhone is so locked down” where does that come from and have those people actually used iOS? There isn’t a single app I’ve been unable to use and I don’t use any Apple services, so the “walled garden” is complete rubbish.
I seriously can’t see myself ever going back to Android.
This conversation should be mandatory reading for all 12-15year olds.
Kids at school keep hatin iPhones or Android, depending on what they have. What we need to realize is that everyone has different needs.
I enjoy tinkering with my phone. So I got an android and Lin'd it. I got many iPhone friends who love the simplicity.
Use what you feel comfy with, sure, be open to suggestions, but IT'S YOUR DAMN PHONE.
When the proprietary software *only* runs on Linux...
... but wait it only supports Ubuntu 14.04 and refuses to run on any other distro.
... and also it's a GUI tool that doesn't want to open in Docker
... and also it actually only supports 16.04 because why even write documentation?
Installing a Ubuntu VM now... :/
