I am proud to say that I am ditching proprietary software, especially Google, slowly, by running Nextcloud on my raspberry pi

Lolololol
Error handling is quite consistent in browsers, but amazingly enough it hasn't been part of HTML specifications.

heyyy uh

quick reminder

ESR took a cool counterculture and got his shitty right-wing UNIX ideology all over it—he's not just a bad person, he's a exceptionally bad historian and you shouldn't take his word for anything, the jargon file that he "curates" reflects nothing like an actual 70s/80s programming culture.

here's a pre-ESR jargon file for reference: dourish.com/goodies/jargon.htm

KDE's Plasma desktop integrated with Nextcloud services like contacts, todo, calendar perfectly fine out of the box!!!

Finally, moving to KDE from Elementary OS. Can't take GTK based applications. Elementary has the best UI...

Goodbye, Windows. I am done with dual-boot. I don't play videos games anymore...

Why would I do that? You fail to explain what good it will do...

Why big companies squander brilliant ideas
In 1970, the photocopying giant Xerox established the Palo Alto Research Center, or Parc. Xerox Parc then developed the world’s first personal computer, with a graphical user interface, windows, icons and a mouse. Bill Gates of Microsoft and Steve Jobs of Apple observed developments at Xerox Parc with great interest. Xerox still makes photocopiers.

The free libre open source analytics software Matomo (formerly known as Piwik) is now on the fediverse:

@Matomo

They also have a website:

matomo.org/

The software costs nothing if you self-host, and they also offer a paid hosted option for people who prefer it.

Unlike Google Analytics, Matomo's data stays entirely on the site that uses it. No one else has access to it, so there's no way for it to be aggregated across many sites.

Free text editors like VSCodium, Atom are making paid editors like Sublime Text obsolete. They provide more customization, plugins out of the box than paid ones.

Hello scholars

"I believe it includes all MSFT patents that they consider to "read on Linux." (That's what MS corporate spokesperson told me.) It doesn't include every MS patent. It does not include Windows, i was told. MS owns 90K plus patents. They are submitting 60K to OIN."

"Microsoft is pledging our massive patent portfolio – over 60,000 patents – to Linux and open source by joining OIN this morning. If you're looking for signs that we are serious about being the world's largest open source company, look no further."

Cognitive load: angular vs react (documentation size)

I've been going around in circles on the #ibm website trying to find the information I need. Its so bad that I had to resort to making a telephone call. I spoke to three different people all of whom were confused by the request for a developer license for a product.

Every few minutes the website pops up asking how likely I am to recommend IBM, (0 not likely at all). Then it keeps asking "How can we improve your experience?" Improving the site content and having knowledgeable staff would be a good start.

Further adventures in #NotLinux: AROS

AROS is an open source AmigaOS compatible operating system that can run on PPC, 68K, ARM, or Intel hardware.
