OK honestly, at this point, I just keep forgetting to reboot

But nothing's broken, soo, keeping this train going

"Smart" and networked proprietary devices should be very much called what they are: dystopian junk.

If you want a less polemic term, use "automated surveillance devices," but really all of these TVs, home assistants, toasters, fridges, smoke detectors, etc. are dystopian junk.

We need "low tech" appliances, and we need personal computing devices that are, by design, fully controllable by the people using them.

Don't talk out of your ass about things that you clearly don't fully understand. Be open and willing to say, “I don't know.”

To reboot for updates, or to try beating my uptime record for this installation...

I did an overview of , as they recently released version 15. It was a fairly polished experience, but I had some concerns... youtu.be/jFWvCSAu6xY

I've been using Pinafore for Mastodon for a long while now, but I've gotta say, I'm really liking the new default Mastodon interface.

I can understand the appeal of the original, multi-column view---which is still available to use---but this looks a lot better to me.

Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍

So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?

If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to joinmastodon.org ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?

(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)

If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.

Re-recorded it today, it kinda went from "first impressions" to more of a review. Still gonna shoot for releasing it today.

Recorded a first impressions video of (probably going up tomorrow), and it's pretty good overall.

I'm not usually a fan of a heavily-customized GNOME (like what Manjaro does), but I do like Zorin's implementation. Feels really polished.

Users have asked us about a dark style preference in elementary OS. In our latest story, Cassidy dives into the research and prior art around dark styles, plus shares how it could be achieved not only in elementary OS, but across desktops. buff.ly/2HnNaII

@davidmcdougal @Wimpy @popey We're currently working on adding snap support to the Software Boutique.

Random tidbit: elementary users have paid hundreds of dollars for my little apps in AppCenter, even though it's not required. All other distribution methods combined (including Flathub, Fedora, etc.) have grossed $9. From one person.
