@tomasino And don't bother typing out all your lame excuses. I've heard them all before, I'll do that bit for you:
"Oh, boohoo, licensing is so difficult. You live in a weird region. It's not that simple. Tax payer money went into this nationally produced show. It's so hard to set up and maintain the infrastructure to deliver DRM-free digital content (even though this is what the pirates are doing literally for free). It's not that simple. Booho."
Any 👏 Price 👏 You 👏 Wish 👏 To 👏 Name
@tomasino It's not difficult to get along with these customers. I've said this again and again for 20 years, and I am still confident enough that these companies have their front doors stuck so far up their asses that I'm in no danger making such a statement:

in the new year, remember that the "shorter games with worse graphics" (per the meme) have existed all along,
and in fact that's where e.g. most of the well-written and genuine lgbtq+ representation can be found without having to delude yourself into reading queerness between the lines of AAA games that will structurally *never* be able to include more than table scraps to overstate for press coverage,
and you can simply choose to decrease your participation in the maximally-exploitative parts of the industry a little bit and instead give that support to some small developers who could use it
Lately I'm spending some time learning Android, pretty much from scratch. This has to be the most infuriating case of search results getting masked by a more popular topic with the same keywords. No, I don't want to make an app. I want to make an operating system! #aosp

My first search result for "which linux" is equally bewildering.
It's a techradar article titled "Best Linux distros of 2021", and features such well-established, popular desktop distros as:
And, of course, everyone's favorite:
"It's the user's fault that they don't know how or when to file a bug report through github when a command is about to clobber their desktop environment" Pop_OS!.
Riddles are abound tonight.
