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/

@juliobiason Also insta-block people insulting other people in my threads
@juliobiason I reached a point where simply I try not to interact with people in birdside with either
1) Random numbers on their username
2) People with their country flags in their username/avatar/bio
3) Manga/Anime avatars
4) People with "politically incorrect" in their bio
Much happier after doing this
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")

@fatboy depending on the use case org-mode for emacs can be an awesome tool
