  1. There is also Shepard, Guix’ init system.
  2. OpenRC still uses sysvinit under the hood as default I think?
  3. I really doubt any init is as fast as systemd especially under high load. Init freedom is still a good thing :)
  4. Links are “Unclickable for your security”? What? Is this about preemptive loading of links?

I don’t know the answer, but if you look at https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroiddata/-/blob/master/metadata/org.scid.android.yml#L96 Build is intentionally disabled. Next step could be looking into the commits affecting that file.

Thank you for the insights, do you know which data that is in particular? For federation I would think 1) who you’re speaking to (both servers?), 2) on which server they are, 3) how long, how often, etc. Is that about right?

Yes, but back in June 2020 it sent the keys over transport encryption, not inside OMEMO, meaning it was effectively transport encrypted and not E2EE.
I’m asking whether that changed.

Also: are XMPP’s voice calls (jingle) E2EE?

However, due to XMPP’s inherent metadata leaks, XMPP should usually not be trusted for private communication. Does anyone have more information on this? I always assumed XMPP to be quite good for private conversations, considering it’s strongly decentralized nature and maturity.

That it is expected to just give out your number to random people, be it work or organizations. I don’t want you calling or texting me, thank you very much.

The first sentence struck me also when I read the first part about the “minimizing” and “maximizing” buttons. GNOME has it’s own UX models, and if you try to force different models onto it, of course it’s going to be a bad experience. Also, I think the negativity and dismissiveness is something which is uncalled for. There is a lot to objectively appreciate, even if one doesn’t like it for their own usage, for example that mobile users will quickly feel comfortable or that it is by far the best touchscreen interface.
