New Episode of Destination Linux is OUT! New Episode and New Release Day!
With help from the DL Patrons we've switch the release day to Wednesdays instead of Fridays from this episode forward.
Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.
Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.
Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.
@ryan659 in some alternate universe where my entire workflow isn't html already, maybe that makes a difference to me. I'm fine with using html renderers because they work for me in my actual job every day, in practice, in the real world.
"Native" apps are those I spend approximately 0% of my time in on desktop.
My email, text chat, video chat, bug tracker, and code review all run in a browser. My editor runs in an embedded browser (Electron). My source control and remote logins run in a terminal.
Escape to games? They run full screen and do their own cross-platform UIs too.
I guess what I'm saying is, using the "native toolkit" is overrated in terms of what it takes for users to get their usage done.
Rumor is Valve is baking Wine support into Steam to run (at least some) Windows games on Linux/SteamOS. Interesting!
https://speakerdeck.com/skepticfx/voracle-compression-oracle-attacks-on-vpn-tunnels very interesting technique presented on an evolutionary attack on OpenVPN tunnels being used to access plain text web apps.
Monday thougts on people on social networks
I don't like when people contsantly post something 20+ posts per day. In any social network. Because it makes me overwhelmed with information. Which, also, is pretty irrelevant and have no interesting information. And I start spending about 20x time scrolling through the feed to keep myself up to date.
So I mostly unfollow such people, sorry for that. I just don't know the reason, why some people constantly post a lot per day. Don't you have other things to do?
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!
