(The answer to "what is a distro really providing" is probably "work through a Linux From Scratch install, and then you'll see" but I'm hoping to discover the answer to my question in a less … educational … way)

desktops would be used by businesses a lot more if managing them wouldn't be so cumbersome and/or expensive.

For non-enterprises there are currently two options to manage Linux desktops centrally: fidgeting with or buying Landscape at $150/year. In our non-profit case, $7500 is too expensive.

Unless the world comes up with either easy to use OR affordable management tools, the year of the Linux desktop will unfortunately remain far away.

Today I had the need for something like Gist, to paste a piece of code that doesn't really fit any of my existing projects, is too small to turn into one, but it's still worth sharing. Slap it up somewhere, and be done with it, basically.

So I created an organization where I'll dump random stuff: git.madhouse-project.org/paste

First thing shared, an Emacs package to hide/show copyright headers: git.madhouse-project.org/paste

What I hate about april 1st is that it spans more than a day -- australiens try to get me the day before, americans the day after -- it disrupts my work/life-flow and a really funny one is seldom -- I'm getting old, I have seen a prank or two; I'd go so far as to say, that a really good april-fools prank has to be local/personal; maybe I'm just getting grumpy

#Z is a really cool cli application that keeps track of the directories you frequent and lets you jump to them using the name of the target directory or names in the path (in order but not necessarily sequentially) if you have more than one with the same name.

If you're on Arch, it's already in Community so you can install it with pacman -S z 👍

Going for absolutely hasn't been cheaper for us than going for Msft's non-profit discount.

We value self-hosting, so we bought (refurbished) servers. We had to hire a befriended engineer to set up the platform , back-up, the provisioning, configuration management and to integrate everything with SSO + 2FA. We also have a small support contract with him because, well, imposter syndrome.

Going hasn''t been cheap, but hopefully sharing our knowledge will make it cheaper for others.

Hello, world! Mastodon looks great. Would be even better if code blocks were supported, I think :)

Good article, I think I have the same issues with #peertube I'm trying to find an instance, to get started with, but I'm going to be mirroring what I put on youtube, and I don't want to be next to adult content.

I don't have a security background, but I hope someone else can help. I'll boost this toot to see if we can find one of the great and folks in the fediverse.

The fact you've build a native discord/slack replacement is incredibly awesome, and I really hope someone can help with an audit of ripcord!
