Although I'm not a new mastodon user I've just joined fosstodon.org
My interests include #FreeSoftware, privacy advocacy and everything related to technology improving life for everybody. I've been using #Linux since mid 90s and I've been involved in local free software communities
I'm also a fan of pen and paper role-playing games, indie video games and literature.

A complete editor, dedicated 2D and 3D engines, animation tools, multi-platform exports, plugins, a Free asset store +more.

What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us
For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him
The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people
And it's mostly women who get pushed out
So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable
Richard Stallman resigns as president of the Free Software Foundation
Our statement: https://fsfe.org/news/2019/news-20190917-01.html
The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.
Introducing the Destination Linux Network!
A community hub and media network designed to bring passionate creators together with their communities to spread our love of open-source, technology, and Linux.
I wrote about how we, F/LOSS lovers, need to drop toxic 'heroes' and need to either reform or move on from organizations that WON'T help https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/intersection-poc-floss
i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license
i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important
but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦♂️
i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why
gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead
I need help completing the information here for various desktop environments: https://danielfore.com/linuxisnotaboutsystray/

In light of the recent events on this instance and the way I've seen everyone act (so far) in response to it, I've decided to double my Patreon contribution to show my support for the instance and the people that run it and try their best to make it a nice corner of the Fediverse.
And I think it has always been, and still is, a very nice corner of the Fediverse. People behave well enough here that we don't even *need* a CoC.
So thanks Kev, Mike, and the moderator team for the job you do here.
The @kde has done an absolutely incredible job creating a truly world class user experience. We at GNOME appreciate everything you have done to push the #FOSS desktop forward, and we continue to be inspired by your community and vision! 🤗
Reading about Antergos closing shop on reddit and realizing people on reddit are morons.
"Baaah! Fragmentation is bahd they will do what I say now instead"
This is FLOSS, there is no "fragmentation", just people doing something (like the Antergos devs) or people NOT doing something (see: "everyone on reddit")
