Imagine a #Batman story where Batman's identity gets revealed and criminals don't fear him anymore, so he has to somehow make them scared of him again, and gets consumed by the Batman side of him, fully eliminating Bruce Wayne in the process
"It’s compelling to look at the non-hosting users, conclude that they are a smashing majority (99.8% !!!!), and make a sweeping conclusion that no one wants to host their own servers. Yet it’s precisely because of those 0.2% that the system is capable of existing. Take them away, and the whole system dies."
Great post. The tiny minority of people running the network are a key constituency. They need good #UX too.
I had recently got my Oneplus6 set up just the way I want it. Now AT&T is forcing me to stop using my Oneplus6 even though it is LTE capable. They say it's not. It's supposed to stop working next month. I have another phone but I'm gonna use this one until the last day.
Tmobile will let me use it on their network but their coverage here sucks. I wish it was better.
Now I'm going to have to find a more recent phone, load LineageOS on it and start over.

Valve: We are the daddy of PC gaming. Also, Linux, bitchez, Steamdeck will be awesome!

It's way easier to run old games on Linux using their Windows releases and Wine, rather than to run their native Linux releases on modern Linux..
And this is not just a problem with games... Backwards compatibility is an issue on Linux.We usually don't care because most of the software we run can be recompiled for modern systems. Unless the code has not been updated for 2 decades, and everything around it has shifted forward...
My youngest son had a school test today that involved the use of the proprietary ArcGIS. However the school test had to be postponed because of license issues with ArcGIS.
Message to all schools, colleges and universities use FLOSS only. And if an alternative doesn't exist, help creating one.
(excuse my username) FLOSS is cool. I like making polls relating to FOSS/FLOSS projects
