Depends on the use case. I played around with it a lot and came to the conclusion that I don't like flatpaks and the base system is not flexible enough for me.

I use it as a self-updating desktop for my parents tho,. For that it's absolutely perfect.

@BigBlackCockroach Have you heard of https://nostr.com/ ?
Should be of interest to you.
It's censorship resistant by design and you can get 100% censorship resistance by running your own relay (server which transfers the data between the clients).
It's a protocol, so all kinds of different applications can be implemented with it. Something like mastodon already exists.

What does a whitepaper have to do with cryptocurrency?

Mnmalst, (edited )

Whitepaper is just a different term for a technical documentation[1] and has literally nothing to do with cryptocurrency. Your reasoning in your initial post doesn't make any sense what so ever. I guarantee most of the companies you mentioned, if not all, published white papers for various topics in their past. I can only repeat myself, white papers have absolutely nothing to do with crypto currency. Just as one example. Check the Signal protocol[2] Wikipedia page and search for whitepaper.

It's ok to not know what a white paper is but then don't start your posts with "Looked pretty interesting, until I saw the “read whitepaper” button.".

That being said, where in the skiff white paper did you find crypto currency? Admittedly I didn't read all or even most of it but a simple search for "currency", "blockchain" or even "chain" doesn't return any results. I really hope you don't talk about the word "crypto", cause that has an entirely different meaning in that context.

@aard What window manager do you use? Any chance to see your setup?

@aard Thanks, appreciate it! I am a xfce user with my own script to move windows around that kinda acts like a window manager, tailored specifically to what I need. I made several attempts over the years to switch to a floating wm but never found the sweet spot with multiple monitors involved, so I am always interested how other peoples setups look.

@kescusay Just out of interest, what are the "special-purpose activities that can’t be done on my Linux laptop" if you don't mind sharing?

@SomeBoyo What "long term support"? Official GrapheneOS releases for a device end when the official Android support ends because they don't support hardware where the firmware is not updated anymore. Or did that change recently?

@SaltyIceteaMaker I installed miniflux, a rss reader, on it. Sadly android constantly kills the internet connecting when the screen turns off, so I can't use it as a server to access it from my other devices. I have tried everything I could find to prevent that from happening.

@SomeBoyo Yeah that's the normal devices guarantee you also get with normal android on pixel devices. So in terms of longevity GrapheneOS doesn't offer any advantages. There are other advantages of course.

@kionite231 Was the first thing I tried. Termux even has a "wake lock" function but that also doesn't seem to prevent it.

@poweruser Sadly it doesn't have an AMOLED screen (cheap samsung tablet) but as a last resort it might be worth a shot. Thanks

@DasRubberDuck Thew lack of community federation was super confused for me in the very beginning. Personally i think, communities would be the most important part to federate, cause that data would be lost otherwise if an instance goes down. I could live with loosing my account and my "connections" to other people but loosing all the information in all those communities would be horrible.

Do we have any information if there will be a version without google drm? Would love to use it on my devices that don't have google play installed.

@hardypart I have no inside info obviously but why would he join? He is making bank with photopea, why support potential competition?

@shazbot I am on version 2.1.0 but I don't see any of the new features as far as I can tell. From what I can see only the "addons" from the previous version show up in the settings menu.

*edit: Ah my bad, you have to actively install the update by pressing the green button. That's a little intuitive. This is the first userscript I encounter that doesn't have auto updates.

@shazbot Hey thanks for the replay, I am aware. For some reason the latest version of KES got installed alongside the existing 1.20 version I was using for what ever reason. Now everything works tho. Thanks again, love the script.

Google is working on essentially putting DRM on the web (github.com)

The much maligned “Trusted Computing” idea requires that the party you are supposed to trust deserves to be trusted, and Google is DEFINITELY NOT worthy of being trusted, this is a naked power grab to destroy the open web for Google’s ad profits no matter the consequences, this would put heavy surveillance in Google’s...

@TheYang Exactly! Came here to say this. Everybody actively using chromium based browsers is a part of the problem.

@altima_neo https://mlmym.org/ is fantastic. Sadly it doesn't work with kbin. Maybe some day.

@HLMenckenFan Not sure who said it before but Ricky Gervais makes a similar one at the Colbert show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5ZOwNK6n9U Besides some other good arguments. Worth a watch.

Doesn't always work tho. Opening https://kbin.social/m/android@lemdro.id for examples gives me a 404.

Mnmalst,
Mnmalst avatar

@ElectroVagrant Yes it works like that on kbin, at least to an extend. I am not sure when exactly it gets available tho. Besides that, as other people said, there seems to be a federation bug at the moment which seems to cause this problem.

The best way I found so far is using one of the community listing sites like: https://lemmyverse.net/communities
