These people keep bringing up "mArKeT sHaRE"
1. Linux is free. How would it get market share?
2. It's quite difficult to get an accurate "market share" since user-agents can be faked.
EDIT: I wonder if Microsoft are making anti-Linux accounts to try and hamper Linux.

[Corridor Crew] used this tech a few months back.
This is cool! (It could be used for malicious intent; but it also gives people the ability to protect their privacy in the event that they need to show a face.)

>So that's why [MultiMC removed CurseForge support](https://github.com/MultiMC/Launcher/commit/0a827ba70e6ef20187f8507a536d54a8441020dc) (in commit `0a827ba70e6ef20187f8507a536d54a8441020dc`). (The commiter couldn't even bother to *include* the full explanation in the merge commit. This is why I hate GitHub.)
>So scummy of CurseForge. They're also trying to insert ads.^[["As we supported Linux, we tried to technically look on how ad monetization would look like on Mac & Linux (something that we didn't yet have the bandwidth to do).", *Old API deprecation, Linux and Standalone client FAQ*](https://support.curseforge.com/en/support/solutions/articles/9000215005-old-api-deprecation-linux-and-standalone-client-faq)]
I *absolutely* agree! (I'm not stanning for Linus; I have a similar opinion.) GitHub merges have so little info that I may as well just use `git` to merge.
I guess that's why I'm confused by GitHub merges in projects.
* [Issue #1059](https://github.com/simh/simh/issues/1059).
* [Another message to issue #1059 by Paul Hardy.](https://groups.io/g/simh/message/1417)
The project maintainer is egotistical. I guess that's *another* behavior to not do as a software developer.
Apparently SDL-org changed the license of SDL from the LGPL (a copyleft license) to zlib (a permissive license).^[[Older Releases](https://libsdl.org/release/) (Check the license in versions before SDL2 and 1.3.)]
I don't get why SDL-org would make the license change; unless if it's for popularity.
Bad idea to ban trait-selected abortion, IMO; but I would just allow it as some people would just do abortion on their own anyway.
This issue can't just be boiled down to ableism; it is a large reason for the potential abortions. Ableism is a symptom of capitalism. However, some people don't have the resources to take care of a(n) (autistic) child; some persons got raped and they got pregnant. Is it "ableist" to abort an autistic child then?
I didn't brush my teeth as a child and teen because I had energy issues and I struggled to actually do them; I still struggle to do it today.
I rarely floss because it seems like a lot of work for seemingly little gains.
I got plaque again after getting teeth cleaned some weeks ago. I guess my teeth is screwed...
My opinion is that sex work should be legal. It would enable involuntary virgins to get a *good* sex experience for payment; they will be guaranteed a good sex experience with a sex worker: no harassment, good education, and a fun time.
Sex work gets shamed by ~~people~~ puritans because of payment for sex and it's "sinful"; yet these same ~~persons~~ puritans get and have sex for free out of "passion" or marriage; they also discriminate against minorities in sec.
EDIT: Apparently there is an implied difference between sex work and prostitution. I mean sex work.
EDIT 2: I messed up the writing of my post. My real opinion is located in [this comment](https://lemmy.ml/post/266235/comment/181850):
> Oof. I didn't realize there was way more exploitation than just sex traffickers. It totally makes sense though; sex trades are a product of capitalist exploitation and the existence of private property. (Naturally under communism, the prevalence of sex trades would be heavily reduced.)
> It seems like I couldn't communicate my ideas properly beforehand. I don't want people in the sex trade to be criminalized; I want pimps and johns to be criminalized.
> Only a few hours ago: I wanted to support a sex trade industry that didn't involve rapes or rely on economic coercion. I just wanted disabled people, who keep getting discriminated out of sex,^[[*Sexual Ableism*](https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/sexual-ableism/)]^[[*Dating With Disability: How to Rise Above Sexual Ableism*](https://radiantabilities.com/rise-above-sexual-ableism/)]^[[*Dating with Disability: Choose Your Dreams Over Sexual Ableism*](https://radiantabilities.com/dreams-not-sexual-ableism/)] to be able to feel better about their lives; a lack of sex can cause mental health issues in some people (even though this shouldn't happen). (However, having sex probably won't fix the issue, it will just hide the problems until later). Now I feel like shit...
I feel that barcodes (usually QR Codes) are underutilized; I forgot about them until I saw [this post.](https://lemmy.ml/post/260138)
* I think barcodes could potentially be used to quickly transmit preset information to war victims.
* They could be used to transmit information on platforms that censor: Sharing Lemmy posts on Reddit (even though it's currently redundant due to federation). (I just thought of this.)
