It has 5 built in visualizers but no support for plugins (like ProjectM).

Frightening. And they expect people to want to do banking this way!

onixd is a cross-platform desktop client built for Subsonic-API

FLOSS alternative to subsonic, supporting its many clients

Hoping the core dump with MPD issue is fixed in this release

Catering to their right wing user base, maybe?

DDG has become popular with far right groups lately. So there’s some good to come from this move.

There’s qmpdclient but it may have been abandoned as well. Strange to see that no QT based mpd clients are in active development while KDE is probably more popular than it’s ever been.

Author has decided this is the final release and has archived the project. Hopefully a good fork emerges. It would be a shame for this great mpd client to die now.

Lenovo has not been a friend to FOSS in the past. I expect more evil shit embedded into this platform too.

Brave sucks in general. It’s has too much bullshit built in. Yes you can disable it but easier to just use a better browser.

One engineer and one conductor can move 18,000 tons of freight. I don’t see how making trains fully autonomous makes sense here.

Tried it out just for fun because I’ve never used Chrome OS. It’s too limited for my tastes but I can see it being useful for replacing Windows.

Just an FYI: You can’t create a USB installer from Linux (MacOS, Windows only).


Seems to be. Dude is a cancer on the Linux community.

The benchmarks also show a ton of variance between distros which makes me think the testing methodology might be off here.

Scaling on Wayland doesn’t work for me so X11 is here to stay until that gets fixed

Scheduling service which optimizes Linux's CPU scheduler and automatically assigns process priorities for improved desktop responsiveness.

Holy shit. Between this and all the crazy “self driving” behavior these cars should be banned from the roads.

Quality control must be an easy job at the ole Tesla factory

You can always use a libreddit instance. Change reddit.com in the URL to libredd.it. I have a local instance and use the Privacy Redirect extension to make Google search results use my local instance instead of the actual site.

Yep. Lots of jerking off over screenshots of wallpaper and neofetch.

Like I’m going to let someone install a chip Elon made in my brain…

ProtonMail is a service lauded for its commitment to privacy. It’s a particular favorite amongst journalists, as it can be used by whistleblowers and the like securely without fear of revealing their identity. However, ProtonMail was recently compelled by Swiss authorities to release the IP address it had logged of a user, though it had a good reason.

That’s hilarious! As if I needed more proof that NFTs are a joke. 🍿

The friendship app Replika was created to give users a virtual chatbot to socialize with. But how it’s now being used has taken a darker turn.

The recent activity around x86 (x86_64 included) straight-line speculation mitigation handling is set to culminate with this security feature being set for mainline with the upcoming Linux 5.17 cycle.

Metadata within a file can tell a lot about you. Cameras record data about when and where a picture was taken and which camera was used. Office applications automatically add author and company information to documents and spreadsheets. This is sensitive information and you may not want to disclose it. This tool allows you to view metadata in your files and to get rid of it, as much as possible.
