Other than that, it's a pretty good experience, but the above needs to be fixed. As of right now, I don't feel it's ready for newbies.

I helped my brother dual boot 36 yesterday, and here are my thoughts:

- There's no auto partitioning in the installer for dual booting, it has to be done manually
- Dealing with RPM Fusion & 3rd party repos is weird and unintuitive. This applies to drivers and nonfree codecs
- Software (the package manager) is better than I remember, but still bad
- Flathub repo needs to be installed manually
- dnf is slower than pacman, but faster than apt

Would you daily drive a Linux distro like Silverblue or Steam OS 3, with an immutable root file system and apps only available through Flatpak and Appimage?

Alright, update on the Feeds situation: I went ahead and bundled webkit. It's gonna be a substantial download, but it's finally out!

I've been itching to release this 1.0 for a long time, since it's so much better than the previous version: and , but also the very necessary cleanups and improvements, plus the new backend built on top of syndication-domination, the small library I made to parse rss/atom/opml and a little html as well.

Coming VERY soon on 😁

I just found out that the 42 runtime won't ship with with support because apparently it isn't API stable.

I've been waiting a very long time to release Feeds, and I still can't, this is very frustrating.

Fellow GNOMies, do you have any suggestions? Would it be feasible to create a webkit2gtk5 runtime extension?

Boosts appreciated

Mousai is a program which can listens to an audio source, be that your desktop audio or your microphone, and checks for any songs that it hears, providing you with the link if it can find one. This is very useful if you just can't quite put your finger on what the name of that one song is

You can get the app on Flathub here:

Update: seems like the appeal got approved! Weird that it just happened like that, I didn't want to cause any trouble. Maybe it was an automated false positive.

Show thread uhm, update: it seems like this new account has been suspended for spam. I appealed it, but I probably misunderstood the terms of use for Am I not allowed to have a bot account automatically share what I post on my blog? I've seen other publications do it, so why is my case different? Anyone has any clue?
