Whenever a web browser, operating system, or web site gains dominance among users, it stops being cool and starts becomes blatantly abusive.
This Chromium nonsense is just more of what we saw from Internet Explorer.
Every generation of geeks learns this anew, and acts all shocked. Learn some history, folks. Learn from those who came before.
Stop supporting only one platform. Variety is ESSENTIAL. Monocultures are death. #sysadmin
Other good example is #kakoune
It's often weird for new users it does not come with many features known from Vim. It does not provide smartabs for example. They are avaliable as plugin tho.
I think #suckless tools are poor examples of minimalist software. For me minimalism in computing is about having features you need and understand - nothing more. With suckless stuff you have to learn to live without some features or patch them (but then you are developer not user :V).
You can reconfigure them without recompiling. That's fine if you are C developer but for me it's steep too far. You have to make install them so no package manager for ya.
Why I use old hardware
I added Fish shell support for z.lua (autojump util similar to z.sh)
Give it a try, it's awesome :D
Microsoft created fantasy console and it looks solid

Helpful Clippy - it's still funny for me ;) #kakoune
hey guess what; #fennel 0.2.0 was released yesterday

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
I finished scrapping http://brutalistwebsites.com/
~500mb of brutal goodness :D
