That awkward moment, when you want to be happy for Apple's mind boggling accomplishment in the M1, but the fact that RAM is now absolutely not accessible, and every little fault within the SoC will necessitate an entirely new mainboard, coupled with the knowledge that Apple will horde this technology (as they should) and only their products will be able to take advantage of it make me sad. Worse? Intel, AMD, and even ARM have a long way to go to catch up.
#Lollypop is seriously the best GUI based music player on Linux. The only thing that I wish it had that it doesn't is a separate volume control instead of the system volume being the only way control volume.
Are you using Windows? Want to make sure it is private as possible (with out going to mega extremes)? Check out WPD.app and Tinywall. A Windows Privacy Dashboard and Windows Firewall respectively. They do exactly as they say do, and do it well. I've recorded network traffic, and confirm nothing but what you allow leaves. They make Windows private again.
Man, if I didn't need the standard modularity of Gnome, I would love to use Elementary OS 6. It is shaping up to look really good! I wish Pantheon supported gnome extensions like dash to panel, but the team at #ElementaryOS is doing some serious beautiful work! I might not be using it now, but I'm happy I sent money there way in the past.
That strange space where my android email client (#FairEmail) works better and is more reliable than my desktop email clients (Outllook 2016 and Mailspring). They are all connected to 9 email clients. I do like Outlook the most because it has so many features. I particularly like that I can pause syncing of email whenever I need to. That is a feature that would be great to have on all email clients.
One other complication from moving on from Facebook is that the solutions available don't really include longevity. The migration itself can detail a lot of work, and take a lot of time. To do this on a platform that will eventually burn out when the one or two developers working on it, have had their fill, just really doesn't help encourage the move. Mastodon is popular now, but not really, and who knows how long its development and support will last? Just saying.
