Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and others looked the future of user-centric, high-choice, high-freedom software in the face and decided to kill it. That's unforgivable.

My views on Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation
So I decided it was definitely time to remove the FSF sticker from my laptop. It was really hard to remove and it left a really gross residue that I'm not sure I'll ever get off. If that isn't a good metaphor for Stallman's influence on the world of free software, I don't know what is.

My parents' girl kitty likes to play fetch. She finds a toy, then brings it over. Sometimes she drops it on the ground and sometimes you put your hand right under her mouth and she gives it directly to you.
I'm impressed with the number of "don't get mad at Red Hat" articles after the CentOS Stream announcement. None of them have convinced me, though.
Red Hat said they're not going to stick to what they said they would do. You can try to spin it however you want, but that's the crux of it. Trust gone in one press release.
#Debian has a new homepage - and I love the leading headline: "Debian is a #Community of People." Yes, it is also a Free operating system, but at a deeper level, the social contract reveals what it's really about: making the world a better place through software.
I have been a #Debian developer almost a quarter of a century now and I am glad to see these ideals continue to thrive.
The reasons why it took so long:
1. Our backup system for the assets is a bit on the slow side. An expected "couple of hours" after I shut the services down ended up finishing sometime in the middle of the night.
2. The system runs on a different network than where all our install infra is on, so I had to go in and patch the other port in to the right switch.
3. I've spent most of today with $dayjob, poking the server now and then when not so busy.
And that's it. If you see anything broken now, please give me a prod and I'll get on it!
Phew, that took a long time. Almost done now though, just a small mastodon software update and we should be done!
