I'm a copyleft nut but I've got plenty of critiques of the FSF and I don't uncritically revere Richard Stallman, really I don't,
but wow do I love this artwork

Purism Librem adds tamper-evident features, now the most secure laptop under full customer control:
Another update on our Usability & Productivity goal!
Several apps now look MUCH better in HiDPI mode, and KRunner makes it easier to access search history, as well as to find particular file types.
Even more cool stuff: Plasma will have a useful OSD prompt that lets you choose what happens when you connect a new, unknown screen for the first time.

Oh, now that's interesting! Looking at a draft of a blog post due Monday and we've got some great news coming.
We see this very clearly in the trajectory of Bitcoin.
Original idea: "Decentralised money! Everyone contributes to the network, everyone is rewarded fairly for their work, money isn't created as debt, no central banker clique profiting off others' misery"
Then: "it's more efficient to mine centrally, more money means better hardware, mining pools create all the wealth"
Then: "it's primarily an investment vehicle"
Foom, the emergent forces of capital itself recreated centralism. Uncanny.
Any sci-fi series, if it runs for long enough, inevitably gets time travel or alternate universes in it. At this point it starts to rapidly deteriorate and it is better to completely ignore it. Some series start in that state.
Qubes 4.0 is now fully working on our Librem laptops. Additionally, we've added IOMMU and TPM support to our new Coreboot 4.7 BIOS.

#Plasma 5.12 is out:
Apart from performance and stability improvements, new features include spring-loaded folder views, improved Wayland support, optional global menus, interactive notifications, and quite a few more.
We know you've been waiting for this - another update on our Usability & Productivity goal!
Thanks to the efforts of our developers, you'll be able to precisely adjust the panel height, and move Dolphin's Terminal pane to any part of the window.
Konsole can now blur the background when its window is transparent, and Gwenview works better in Full Screen mode.
As you can see, it's been a busy week! And we'll keep on working. #KDEgoals ⚙️
