Uhm, didn't see that coming (totally did):
Not sure how I feel about that (totally do).

There was recently a lot of news about DNS over HTTPS. Some people say it's bad for privacy because it centralizes the DNS requests on Google, Cloudflare and Quad9.
Time to change that and run your own DNS over HTTPS server. I spend some time today in writing, documenting and arranging a small container setup to allow you to do this:
techposting; future of Linux commercialization
Anybody else notice how Microsoft keeps digging its claws into Linux? I’m getting “embrace, extend, and extinguish” flashbacks from the early 2000’s.
Anyway, time for Microsoft Linux to buy out Canonical and SUSE and break standards so everyone has to conform to their junk, ig.
For context, Microsoft has now announced that Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Defender will be released on Linux. This announcement comes following Microsoft’s acquisition of free software hosting platform GitHub and their release of Microsoft’s PowerShell command line for Linux.
Not to mention Microsoft’s inclusion of Windows Subsystem for Linux in Windows 10, which is literally an installation of Canonicle’s Ubuntu Linux that runs on top of Windows.
Feels a lot like they are trying to muscle into Linux and get control of future development to me.
Also, friendly reminder that IBM owns Red Hat Enterprise Linux and, by extension, Fedora now.
Can’t wait for free software to lose its anarchist-friendly bent. /s

@gnome we should talk.
"This Time, There Really Are NO IPv4 Internet Addresses Left"
Yet why is it that IPv6 still isn't fully implemented by at least all ISPs?
Ohh I just realized that the #torbrowser now scales the viewport to a default size no matter the size of the window! Very nice.
I want to see more non-binary defense coming from cis friends. Please speak the fuck out, please defend us, please speak up when being made fun of in the media is the norm. I’m tired of being othered and afraid to show my identity. I want us to share a word. Cis man, cis woman, if you are a true ally, please speak up
Don't know if I like the new black splash screen for the #torbrowser. I rather liked the purple. Otherwise marking HTTP onions as not secure is a good idea (although I thought that onion sites were already encrypted rather it used HTTPS or not?)
Hot take, Ableism
The words "stupid" and "lazy" are never helpful in any context. They are only used to demonize and caricaturize a pattern of behavior or character without even the mildest attempt to understand someone else's circumstances. It shifts and creates blame out of things entirely unrelated to the situation.
