Interesting *checks notes* so to be a self-made millionaire you just need to own a factory, have people come work in it, and then dictate to them how much of their economic output you get to keep

There is a new feature in NeoChat, the @matrix client. Now you can directly reply or add reactions to a message from a menu that appears on hover.

I've come to realize I can't decide if I like #GNOME or #KDE Plasma better so I split the difference and use one on my laptop and the other on my desktop. 🤷‍♂️

Also, these are both amazing projects. Please contribute or donate!

There's so much harmful, exploitative, and proprietary software out there that casting your anger at copyleft is a really stupid, self-defeating attitude

Copyleft or permissive, either way, we're all on the same team. If a copyleft license would force you to make your code copyleft by including it, then whatever, dude, just do it, who gives a flying fuck

The kde.org website was ported to the Hugo framework, making it faster to load and translatable. You can help with the effort of translating it by getting involved with the translations teams: community.kde.org/Get_Involved

On Wednesday the #EU Commission published its new #OpenSource Strategy. We are pleased that the Commission recognises the benefits of #FreeSoftware and the four freedoms to use, study, share and improve, but the commission lacks concrete targets and indicators to implement the strategy. Without these, we worry that the strategy will end up accomplishing too little! fsfe.org/news/2020/news-202010 #fsfe

@eletious programs *like* GSoC, not *just* GSoC. We should make more new GSoCs and fewer new Hacktoberfests.

@kde developer platform is starting to looks quite good! The documentation homage was reorganized and we got a fancy table of content that follows your reading progress.

We have a new tutorial in develop.kde.org about flatpak this time. A small introduction to flatpak packaging for and applications. Big thanks to @Jbb Go check it out at develop.kde.org/docs/flatpak/p!

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as KDE, is in fact, the Plasma desktop environment. KDE is not a desktop environment unto itself, but rather a community that makes software, and the Plasma desktop is just another free component they produce.
