@Cfkschaller I didn't know that Red Hat is ok with committing resource for Fedora to succeed when it doesn't align with RHEL.

With GNOME really closing the gap with proprietary operating systems. Most of the remaining major technical blockers for Fedora widespread adoption is now at the Distro layer. I hope Red Had funds the following activities one day.

* System Recovery
* Factory Reset
* Snapshotting and Boot-to-Snapshot

#Microsoft has long downplayed its role in the 2020 "SolarWinds" attack -- one of the largest #cyberattacks in US history -- but a new ProPublica investigation reveals that the #tech giant ignored warnings that could have stemmed the damage. (THREAD)

• Billionaires are responsible for a million times more CO2 than normal person
• 125 ultra-wealthy individuals emit more CO2 than 85 million.
• Bill Gates belches almost 7,500 tonnes of CO2 per year.
• 80 million cause more CO2 than the poorest 5 billion people.
• The top 1% are responsible for more environmental damage than the poorest 50%
• Top 1% get about 40% of all new wealth created. Poorest 50% get 2%.

@carlrichell @carlrichell I can't believe it has been 20 years of his tireless work. It truly is an invaluable resource for us all.

Wrapping up a very productive GNOME design call… about accent colors! We addressed every single blocking topic and have a clear way forward. I don’t want to promise anything specific (especially timelines), buuuut it’s looking good to me.

I might write up a blog post to summarize the direction once we sort some of the little details out. But there’s a pretty good consensus across half a dozen or so people doing the work—harder than it sounds. 😅

#GNOME #OpenSource #Linux #GNOMEdesign

@alice Oh, that blog post was really helpful. Here I was thinking all the color work related to HDR.
Once the designers come to a consensus for an accent color approach, it should be easier to implement now
Thank you!

Showtime, the video player I'm developing for #GNOME has entered Incubator and is available on the GNOME Nightly repo for testing :blobfoxflooftea:

I'm hoping for it to replace Totem (Videos) in GNOME 48 and I will publish it on Flathub soon.

Setting up GNOME Nightly: nightly.gnome.org/

The repository for the app: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/Incubat

Adobe is trying to claim right of access to all of your projects, regardless of things like NDA, meaning that they are willing to violate HIPAA laws, FERPA laws, and any number of binding civil structures:

@protonprivacy I hope to see Proton Pass distributed via Flathub. RPM and DEBs are dated means to distribute software.

This is the forecast for New Delhi

Not a night below 30c.

The body cannot cool off and "reset".

Many people, even young healthy people will not survive this week because of #ClimateBreakdown

#ClimateCrisis is hitting us already. Not sometime in 2030 or 2040 when we have fresh targets to not hit.

This is genocide.

Indian authorities won't be able to keep an accurate tally of the dead. It is a crisis that #FossilFuel companies gave us. we need to sue them out of existence.

@agx You deserve some sort of open source award for the amount of amazing contributions.

@gnome I look forward to this new GNOME development fund 😀!
