Took the Toxy ZR today to work as the velo has a rear wheel suspension problem. It was refreshing. No arguments that the velo is a ultimate commuting bike though. Luggage on this thing is a real chore.

Serious question: Why does Matrix get what seems like so much more love than Rocket Chat and Mattermost, which both arguably accomplish what matrix is out to do for enterprises better?

Are you a programmer, software engineer, or developer? What are your thoughts on FOSS / FLOSS ideologies? I share my thoughts here, and I genuinely would like to discuss it with people:

So installing /e/ or Lineage OS on the Fairphone 2 has been a bust. The system folder is not accessible because I haven't rooted the phone. I thought this would not be the case. However, trying to search for ways to root the phone is coming up with nothing concrete. What a pain. I was really interested in seeing /e/ in action as well.

@todd Just wanted to say that you guys are really crushing it. I am going on year 2 of ownership with my L13v3 and I find that I appreciate it more every day. Really well made solid construction. I really am looking forward to everything you guys come out with. Keep up the great work!

My problem with Switching Social and its efforts, is not that it isn't helpful to those looking to rid themselves of Google, etc. but rather that it makes assumptions about what to list and what qualifies. Their browser options for example are a good example. If you think that Firefox and derivatives of it are the only solutions, you are being hugely misinformed.

It is a pain sometimes ensuring graphical compliance with applications on Linux. VMware Workstation is a big one. You have to find the solution off of StackExchange instead of their own support channels.

Android's midi implementation seems rather robust. I wonder why there aren't more apps taking advantage of it?

What worries me most about becoming fully reliant on foss software is how susceptible to errant political extremes it is. Mastodon is an excellent example of this.

@danarel
This is why violently opposing them only gives their pathetic cause more attention that it wouldn't normally get. Also if violence is the answer, then the subjective nature of people's rational is given a free pass to drive opinion and discussion using fear.

Serious question: would you use software, if the person responsible for creating it supported and promoted a group of people who stifle free speech and resort to violence and intimidation to accomplish their political ends even though the software was open source and FOSS?

@elementary One thing I especially love about Elementary OS, is that applications actually open in the same state as they were closed. This means my browser does not need to be resized or un-maximized, like it does on every other Linux distro I've tried. It's the little things!

Have you been thinking about making an app for the Librem 5 but didn't know where to start?

I wrote a tutorial blog post for getting started with designing apps for GNOME mobile (and desktop too).
