I really wish people would stop trying to pit "optimize for user experience" against "optimize for developer experience" and using it as shorthand for native development vs web development.

You can have great developer-focused tools for native apps. Xcode used to ship when it had major QoL improvements for developers, not based on annualized feature-creep releases on whatever shit Apple cares about this year. They should be taking all these great DX features from the web like hot reloading and templating and modularization and embracing them.

You can have smooth, fluid, rich experiences in apps built on platforms that make developer's lives easier, but they can't JUST make developer's lives easier. That has to be in service of better software, otherwise it's just cheaper and faster to build, which serves everyone except the user. Hybrid/web platforms aren't going anywhere, and they should be compelled to improve.

By pitting DX and UX against each other, you're only letting Apple and Google off the hook for shipping crappy monolithic tools that don't scale and hardly improve, and you're letting open source projects get away with reinventing the wheel without improving life for the people who have to use all these apps.

I have not much to do before going to bed

I'll just read the MINIX 3 book :blobcatsip:

I'm rather more concerned about most people actually unironically agreeing with him

maybe it's time to stop the self-deprecating thing with the overall public

I just heard about the recent Keemstar-furries drama

he's just a jerk as usual

its only legal to wear an ahegao shirt in public if your a woman. many people become women for precisely this reason

Today I had a wild day using Oberon A2 and Oberon V5! Here's me using the latter right now

Expansion of my list of OS experiments that I find particularly interesting (so far, in no particular order)

- Oberon
- Inferno
- BeOS/Haiku
- Genera
- Singularity

I should also look at:

- Squeak/Pharo/Cuis

So far, the only advantage of using Ubuntu instad of Musl Void besides not having to compile my own kernel: this intel_pstate management extension for GNOME Shell works (oh, and also GSConnect)

Updated to Tusky 5.1.

Still no emoji autocompletion.

Imagine making a T2 chip with centralized trust for avoiding tampering and stuff just to make it all pointless thanks to Thunderbolt

I tried hard to use . After wasting a week on it, I just had to give up. The protocol is just too bad, and the federation design is broken. It's impossible for me to run a server due to this. The Matrix protocol *by design* is the largest DDoS amplification attack vector I have ever seen. Until they fix that, I cannot use it. And it doesn't seem to be a priority to fix it, it's just "Would be nice if we would fix it some day".

Today @sadcatstarry has a Lucario on her avi and I think that's beautiful
