Microsoft makes HTA, where only your HTML files are bundled. People use it. People get bored of it. People stop using it.

GitHub makes Electron, where an ENTIRE VERSION OF CHROME is bundled. People use it. People use it more. People keep using it. People use it even more.

We should all wish Richard Stallman love and respect, even in light of this embarrassing episode, because mistakes happen. We should expect better moving forward, and hope he becomes wise to the outcome of this event.

Friends, be strong! We are still moving forward! Free software around the world is a condition of human freedom! Continue to resist, continue to prosper with our devotion to our free software. The movement does not end unless we all give up.

Sincerely,
Your benevolent comrade.

Tried explaining the problem with Google Play Services (GPSe) on the Android platform to some of my colleagues and why you should use @Tutanota instead of ProtonMail.

One of them have now converted from Gmail to Tutanota and also considers Lineage OS. Others thought it was interesting but will probably continue using stock Android and Gmail.

Stallman, meta

PSA: Normal elevators are not airtight, and I can think of very few reasons for one to be, except maybe infectious disease research facilities. You cannot suffocate in one if it becomes stuck.
