Alright buddy you funny, i’m gonna take you as a troll account, but we need those in here. Welcome to lemmy.

what is going on in there, i am a minority in usa and if i suck as a person i deserve to be held accountable.

Please don’t give me a privilege that i didn’t request.

You know you can apply that to any antifa member who wants disobey laws by resorting to violent means.

This is the nature of FLOSS, if you have the time and passion, why should you do what others say instead of what you want?

It’s conflictive, but it’s the truth.

Sort of? They will soon realize that things are different in here, but if we want to grow the community, we have to accept new users, in one way indiscriminately.

This, one instance wont be able to handle a massive amount of daily users, but the fediverse is designed with ahem… federation in mind.

Mastodon dot social is an example of when there is an over centralized instance, but lemmy ml, although centralizing it’s still relatively small.

I am among those people who think stalin wasn’t a hero, mao a genocide, and modern russia and china are oligarchies and dictatorships.

Some community members might disagree with me, but so far it’s been in a respectful way.

It’ll take at least one year in order to see some cheap android phones with this latest version…

Elementary is infamously known for its buggy releases, although i don’t condone the excessive hate towards the devs, i can understand why the distro has such a reputation.

And it turns out that in this release there are some annoying bugs as well…

I don’t think it would affect america’s technological presence in Russia, like in China, people resort to piracy in order to use Windows.

Using ARM is swiming with the Sharks, at least they are actually investing in RISC-V

Not really powerfull, the Raspberry Pi 4 would be more powerfull.

I feel they have to invest into an open source ISA if they want to avoid any bans from USA.

-100C? that’s not as much as i thought…

Cloud services powered in one way or another with quantum computing… i wonder how that would be. We already live in a cloud environment tho.

what platform are you using? (Mastodon? Friendica? Pixelfed?)

Mastodon, Misskey, Peertube, Pixelfed, Plume, well Lemmy… i also used diaspora but that’s a different thing.

which instance? And most important question: 3) why/how did you choose 1 and 2?

In one way or another, you soon will learn that diversity is key in this enviroment, and experimentation is required, now i am mainly on floss.social but i’ve been in many different instances since 2017, trying to look for the right place.

My first instance was an 100% free speech one, and moderation was for the most part nonexistent, very isolated to begin with, and the content was… well, what you’d expect, so i migrated.

Used two more instances for a long time but i have accounts in many others, and i finally settled down in floss.social. I follow for the most part developers, cause i’m interested in what they do, mostly GNOME devs.

Guix is cool, anything that is written on common lisp/scheme is cool.

Politically i dislike systemd, it just gives Red Hat too much control over GNU/Linux.

But functionally, systemd is an amazing… linux framework, let’s say, and as an operative system that rules over the supercomputer market and the server market, you need that. GNU/Linux has to be the most advanced operative system on earth since it operates on the most advanced fields. So it’s just natural that Red Hat wanted such thing.

well i believe that you need to control the subatomic particles, and in order to do so you need an “absolute zero” temperature, so i don’t think quantum computing will be as accesible as a PC has been.

So i have not bought a GNU/Linux phone for several reasons, one of which is that neither the ecosystem nor the devices themselves seem to be mature enough to have a stable experience. To begin with, GTK3 is far from ideal on these devices, and many applications have not migrated to GTK4 which does take advantage of the GPUs... more or less. I don't know exacly what the status of the drivers is like, but i'd assume that the pinephone doesn't support vulkan. But i've heard that AMD and Samsung will collaborate to bring AMD RDNA2 GPU's to Samsung devices, which in my opinion, it's the game changer that we need. This is completely theoretical but we lose nothing by speculating. So AMD is great on x86 right? you have very powerful graphic cards compared to intel's which have open source drivers and implementations like intel, namely MESA with RADV, unlike Nvidia, a company that offers very powerful cards with closed source drivers. I'd assume that these new devices will be able to run a full GNU/Linux distro with open source drivers and all the subsequent tools. You would get finally a powerful device withouth compromising privacy from the software perspective. I understand that the kill switches are something unique that gives the Librem 5 and the Pinephone an advantage in terms of privacy, but using a real GNU/LInux distribution on a powerful and potentially popular device is a big deal. What are your thoughts on this?
