"GTK theme based on the appearance of Win32 apps on the Windows 10 platform using the default color scheme"

I feel that projects and efforts like these might help increase the adoption of GNU/Linux as a desktop OS.

Perhaps, you could consider saving in hybrid PDF format from . It will get opened in any pdf reader.
You can edit the same file again in LO because the odt content is stored as comment in the pdf.

Won't help much if you want
non-libreoffice users to edit the files though.

Loved the idea of these filebased FOSS utilities. (Can be synced with Syncthing or similar services.)

This looks helpful. And it's FOSS.

Also, the author suggests using MS Word for best PDF conversion results.

Reading PDFs on ebook readers and smart phones is a pain.
Hope content creators get to use a better format. (Epub, Single file Html? )

PDF format is perfect for many use cases, but not for everything.

git-scm.com/docs/git-grep

`git grep` seems to be quite useful for searching inside new code-bases.

Key features:
- Searches tracked files only
- With the `gr=git !grep` alias in `.gitconfig`, it can be made to search from the project root.

Here's the detailed comparison:

0A.D. team and contributors have created a fantastic RTS game!
Kudos to everyone involved in it.

"It provides an easy set of rules for creating an explicit commit history; which makes it easier to write automated tools on top of."

Impressive. 😎

@iokeyboards
Nice idea for a service, guys.
Keep up the good work. Good luck 👍

Most of us spend a lot of time typing, but hardly think of improving that experience.

AFAIK, mechanical keyboards are
- more durable (consequently, good for the environment)
- improve the typing experience
- and good for health (ergonomic)

Vertical (Sidebar) for tabs is a nice idea. Been happily using it for a while.

Takes some time to get used to it. But I think it is worth a try.

(I just wanted the tabs in a vertical manner.Not particularly happy with the *tree-style*)

I find this site very useful to find good tutorial links.

Crowdsourced resources to learn a new programming language (or technology).

The Firefox's containers feature is useful.
But I found it inconvenient to right click and select the container each time while visiting a new site.

Thankfully, they have this "Always open this site in" feature. Once configured for the website, it will automatically open it in the desired container.

Interesting laws/theories.
These are even useful in general, outside of the UX domain.

Playing videos faster (1.25x or 1.5x) is quite a useful feature.
Specially for the informative/podcast types.
