@benjancewicz the shitty air quality sure makes me want to get to offworld, that's for sure.

@federicomena yeah I know, I know, but as I said that API requirement is often difficult/impossible to fulfil.

@federicomena when effectively every time it's activated it's a false positive and that happens effectively every time an app is activated, because the API requirements to avoid it are often impossible to fulfill.

@steko Nah, woudn't want to cause the issue to closed because people were actually commenting on it.

How many upvotes will it take for the focus stealing prevention stuff in mutter/gnome-shell to be removed/made configurable? Asking for a friend.

Here's the thing though. If some dev not talking to or refusing to deal with your consistent toxicity and dog piling efforts is enough to 'radicalize' you, you were a racist piece of shit before all of that.

As much as these cats froth at the mouth about virtue signaling, they engage in it quite a bit.

If you don't like the software, just don't use it. Anything beyond that is some personal grudge shit that refuse to let go of.

@federicomena @ebassi +1 for the GVariant, a context GError would be good, too.

There's a certain schadenfreude in the way that rabid firewallers who refused to open any ports but 80 and 443 under the daft assumption that forcing every communication in the world to encapsulate itself in the same protocol would somehow increase security have created the world in which their IP-Port based model of security is completely useless.

@alcinnz Semi unrelated, but you don't know what part of the stack might give me a way to split words for languages that don't necessarily use whitespace, do you? I thought Pango might, but maybe I should checkout fribidi too?

So... @tbernard and I (mostly Tobias, really) did a thing couple weeks ago for LAS cause we found the conference name to be orthogonal to its goals.

Here's a blog post version of it.

"There is no “Linux” Platform"


Special shootout to @elementary for being the inspiration and case study for it and doing a kickass job all over the place.

"For some, open source is about making software less buggy and more robust by widening the pool of possible contributors. For others, it’s about giving users—at least the more technically skilled ones—more control over the software they use. For the most cynical, it’s a way to dupe people into working for free."


politics, swearing 

PCs are well-supported dumpster fires. Macs are poorly supported ivory towers. ARM boards will only boot if you get an image from a sketchy github repo in a dark alley, and then your SD card dies.

Pick as many as you want, sucker.
