I find it somewhat annoying and concerning that an essential tool like is broken on 24.04 since the end of February and there still is no update in sight.

hey users on the fediverse, is there a way to tile windows on KDE Plasma 6? I've seen some stuff about Bismuth but it doesn't look like it's functional anymore, is there anything similar?

Hi, I am a sound designer and engineer.

I like programming sounds with , and hardware synths, DAW's, etc. But tools don't matter in the end as you probably know, aesthetics do -- and reverb algorithms. Do you know any?

I spent too much time with and . I reaaaally don't like commercial ads. After all, is the internet post-modern?

My favorite emoticon is the smiling face with tear.

I toyed around with gabber:

Found this article about leaving Apple. Hopefully there are enough tips here to help if you're stuck moving away from Apple software.

If you are attempting to try out a desktop for the first time because you've had enough of Microsoft's shit but are feeling a need to scream in order to express just how frustratingly weird and annoying this operating system is...

I'm here for you. I promise to do my best to both validate your emotions and guide you towards the knowledge you need to be free.

Apparently he's still using 7 because Linux is so buggy.

I feel like should try to become the most accessible operating system. The open source nature of it seems like it would be better at catering to the needs of communities with disabilities, and yet it doesn't appear to be competitive in

Alright. Another question. For a hard drive that doesn't have system files and it is used mostly for saving multimedia content, what would be the best file system so it can be read and written by Linux and Windows in a clean manner?

Small detail about #LocOS you will notice only from a remote session. One core has very high usage for a simple screensaver.

It seems it’s not properly going to sleep afterwards. Maybe some ACPI issue or maybe because it has auto login and no auto lock. It’s a machine intentionally in free access.

For now I just set the saver as just blank.

Wow, the @PINE64 #PinebookPro turns five in late July.

My own unit turned three quite recently.

I wonder if there's a #Pinebook 3 in the works 😁

Why is it that in modern OSes we have to stick with the original format when saviing files with the OS dialogue?
Isn't it an easy task to convert say a JPEG to PNG? I'm a user btw.

I used to be thrilled every time launched and was like "Do you want to install the update"? Yes! Free! Awesome! Works better!

@IchoTolot @jonobie The only reasons I keep around are for and .

The Affinity suite under / Wine is still plagued with issues, unfortunately, so it’s dual-boot for me.

Software development isn’t cheap, and I imagine that there just aren’t enough Linux users to justify the expense of a port. I would gladly pay for a version, but that’s just me.

For those who aren’t aware, Microsoft have decided to bake essentially an infostealer into base Windows OS and enable by default.

From the Microsoft FAQ: “Note that Recall does not perform content moderation. It will not hide information such as passwords or financial account numbers."

Info is stored locally - but rather than something like Redline stealing your local browser password vault, now they can just steal the last 3 months of everything you’ve typed and viewed in one database.
