Not so unlikely that it’ll be Mick Schumacher but Ocon’s grid drop isn’t for Canada specifically, it’s for the next race he’ll attend.

Ever since KDE made their software more modular with Plasma 5 / Frameworks 5, a Plasma session can be cut down by a lot. Personally, I don’t think it matters much because as soon as you browse the web, the RAM demands of the web browser dwarf that of even a fully decked out desktop anyway, but the options are there – perhaps for certain use cases that don’t involve web browsing.

Nein, weil nach seinem Tod angeblich Leute zu ihm gebetet haben und infolge davon zwei Wunderheilungen geschehen wären.

It’s a shame that male birth control has been so much more difficult to develop

Nah, condoms exist since ages and has many other benefits.

That title is wild.

That’s why I editorialized in brackets. It’s just too intransparent what the video is about otherwise.

It’s a quote from a sensationalized original newspaper headline.

Let this be a lesson and next time just spend 5 to 10 minutes browsing alternativeto.net or Wikipedia’s list of image editors yourself.

Wikipedia then. Lazy people asking stupid questions instead of googling on their own are even more annoying.

maybe they want to gauge different opinions and reasoning.

If those people cared to google first, they’d stumble onto existing answers to the same question. Such questions get asked over and over again. Those people would know that if they cared to google first.

if u dont want to answer, ignore the post.

Same applies to answers you don’t like: Ignore them, don’t whine how toxic people are.

krita ai paint is pretty dope

Oh wow, wasn’t aware of that plugin. Looks nifty.

technology and the opinions around it change, so some new discussions should be started regularly, if just to prevent information from stagnating.

Not that often, no. This is among the questions that get asked all the time. It amounts to spamming. We’re not talking here about a question that was last asked 10 years ago and is now massively out of date.

People make regularly updated lists of possible alternatives to various applications. Finding them is a matter of firing up the search engine of choice and just entering the search terms.

Also: That question literally gave no context at all. Something along the lines of “My circumstances are XY and Gimp is not suitable because of YZ” is missing completely. I got a proper answer by asking Microsoft Copilot “What are alternatives to GIMP? I’m looking for an option that I can use with Debian 12. An open source application is preferred but not mandatory.” and got a proper list of open source and web-based solutions that includes Krita, Photopea, Pixlr, and Pinta.

My mom is approaching 80 years old and can do better web searches than the person from the screenshot.

The tech whizz, sometimes called ‘God’s influencer,’ died of leukemia in 2006 at age 15.

So finding a cure for cancer is not one of his miracles.

It also took lethargic European car makers who rather lobby for combustion engine cars than go with the times

Steam itself isn’t that special and things like Heroic exist but where Steam wins is the ecosystem. Also Valve sponsor developments of Linux desktop technologies, so even if Steam itself is proprietary, some of the money ends up advancing open source.

I'm really annoyed by how much Brave Search is pushing AI

I’ve been using Brave Search supplemented by Startpage for the past 2+ years. When I search for something, I want to get results for credible webpages, not a summary of unknown quality. I liked the previous AI inclusion because it was instant, didn’t take up much space, and I could quickly navigate to the websites referenced...

So you were fine with Brave before when they scammed others?

Brave has always been despicable.
