Microsoft is a vanguard for open source.
Except that they’ve steamrolled an active community project with the same name and mission. They own a search engine - no one could search and check if the name was in use or even contribute to the project?

we should make it a norm that every open source project has an open "issue" serving as a guest log for people to specifically write nice things about it

To me, natural scrolling on a touch pad feels natural and so does the scrolling on a mouse wheel with natural scrolling turned off. And yet my brain seamlessly transitions between the two. What sorcery is this?

prediction: the next windows will literally just run on linux kernel with a proprietary microsoft frontend/userland, basically what apple did to BSD

It's funny, I logged into the fediverse to rant a bit about Python's asyncio. And I performed a little search for the keyword and see that @ashwinvis already ranted about it a while back, with essentially the same critique. I'm having a Déjà vu! Ashwin is always one step ahead of me!

Android is killing the one thing on the platform that Does Not Completely Suck: #Termux

Android is already a fucking blight on Humanity. It and the rest of Google can DIAF.

#PinePhone #PineTab #Purism I'd REALLY like to see a sane, fully-Linux, sensible hardware keyboard-option tablet. The form factor's wonderful, the execution, OS, and app landscape, on both Android and #iOS have been abysmal.

The world is not ready for phasing out nuclear energy. Great thread here:

> Erik Sundell (@e_Sundell): "Keeping updated with relevant scientific findings isn't easy. In this thread I'll provide digestible science summaries regarding climate and energy. @Partiet(NO) @miljopartiet(SWE) @vihreat(FI) @SFpolitik(DK). This is worth our time to consider!" nitter.snopyta.org/e_Sundell/s

#Arctic #ozone depletion reached record level

Depletion of the #OzoneLayer, ­the shield that protects life on Earth from harmful levels of ultraviolet radiation, reached an unprecedented level over large parts of the Arctic this spring. This phenomenon was caused by the continuing presence of ozone­-depleting substances in the atmosphere and a very cold winter in the stratosphere (the layer of the atmosphere between around 10 km and round 50 km altitude).
