FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.
Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.
It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.
i actually agree with this and i'm glad amd is getting their long overdue moment with gpus lately https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfIibTBaoMM
The more I dig the stranger it gets.
Serbia is cursed with bad landlords but this guy seemed cool. Really chilled. He said he'd pick up the other items later, and that's cool but leaving all these kids toys about my room seems odd.
Also there's a key on the outside of the room with the toys. And someone smashed the glass on the inside if the room.
The copies of "Power of the subconscious" and "Excel 2003" lying about don't make things any better.
I just explained Gemini to someone.
He said 'first come the nerds using the new protocol to talk about the protocol. Next is porn. Third is illegal downloads, if the new protocol is doing well'.
I don't know if that's true, but I happened upon stage 2 alongside some st builds, so I guess Gemini is moving at a good pace so far.
On the 'FOSS good' vs 'muh computer games' debate, how do people feel about computer games being treated like ebooks? i.e.
- if the binary cannot read/write outside its save files, only connected to the internet when prompted (like a book with fillable fields),
- the user downloads updates by choice (also like ebooks),
- and it runs through a FOSS game-launcher (so the user could determine what info the game is allowed access to)
Would that feel like a comfortable solution?
I got sxmo, the tiling window manager up on the pine phone (PostmarketOS).
If the thing's going to not work, it may as well not work in style.
And duf's in the apk repo!
I'm making a 2D horror game for the GNU/Linux operating system. I'll show something here when I'll have something worthy to be shown. I think to do the job with make, g++, gdb, emacs ecc... the SDL2 and OpenGL libs, Krita for the 2D sprites. I'm not going to produce any sound and music by my self because I'm not a musician. I'll see what I can find online about that aspect. I would like to make a game which should be ether funny and scary to play with at the same time.
@bootie_fringe I'm aware lots of people use it, I'm just pointing out a deep difference here between action, and espoused politics.
There's a left and right, there's Atheists and Theists, and both have some meeting point and antagonism where they want airtime to talk about how others are wrong.
But nobody publicly talks about how they want to commit theft, and nobody publicly talks about how the world needs less FOSS.
New to tech and becoming more terrified each day.
