#2 I started to talk about how opensource was better with my friends, even though I was still using Windows. My friends then rightfully asked my why I was still using Windows then? I made the decision that day to start using Linux. I have been using primarily Linux every day since.
I switched to Ubuntu 8.04 from Windows Vista and tried my best to get things done. I was doing PHP websites at the time. I started with Wubi, but eventually just installed Ubuntu. It was a big learning curve but I am grateful for making the change because I wasn't happy being locked into the Windows system.

I first tried to create a Flatpak for Bisq but failed because I couldn't get Bisq to build without relying on network resources. I needed to map out each dependency from Gradle! Gradle is a Java build tool which downloads dependencies. Snaps did not have this limitation/feature?
BTW, snap can install a `*.snap` file with the `--dangerous` flag.
@klaatu The perfect use case for blockchain is money. This is because money is half of every transaction. For better or worse money is the life blood of modern civilization. Bitcoin breaks the law of oppressive governments and gives the people a way to store value like seen in Venezuela today. Other so called use cases of blockchain are usually scams because they are not trying to break any rules and should be implemented instead with a SQL database.
"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
- Noam Chomsky
I love how @Tutanota mail defaults to no pictures whether you are on Android or the web app.

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
