@pilum Would be interesting to see what they do with a 15" model though. The others look great!
@pilum 13" @ 1920x1080 is pretty much spot on for me in terms of usability vs portability:
I go pretty much everywhere with my main laptop and usually on a bicycle, and 13" is usually small and light enough to make that trivial.
Then my workspaces are always 2-column tiled with a readable font size, which at 1920 gives a perfect ~90 chars per line. I generally don't know what to do with more pixels than that. HDPI would be nice though. :)
The StarLabs Lite Mk III looks pretty nice, especially the glass trackpad. Wonder if it's any good? https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2020/07/starlabs-lite-mk-iii-linux-laptop
If it was 13" I'd be seriously considering it....
@g My old French teacher used to say that English is one of the hardest languages to learn because the number of exceptions to the rules out-number the number of consistencies. I guess this is one of them? :)
The Paradox of Tolerance has been on my mind lately. Here's Karl Popper, in _The Open Society and its Enemies_
"If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them."
If you meet a free speech absolutist who insists deplatforming nazis is unethical, that means they haven't thought through the Paradox.

Loving this special secret GitHub profile feature…
I like this new feature on @GitHub! (https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/177d6d55-5303-45ba-931d-acc8ac184697)
@fribbledom > Want your own profile to look like that?
Not really. Tbh I'd rather just not have to use a service that profits from detention centre torture.
