One of the most hotly-requested features for elementary OS is proper multi-touch gestures, and we hear you. Learn about the work going into elementary OS 6, our swipiest OS release ever.️

As much as I would love to make a GNOME app, I have no idea how to! I've followed all the tutorials on GNOME Development I can find; I've even finished a whole year of uni! But I still don't really know how to make an application! I don't really know how it works!
Does anyone know of any resources that could help point me in the right direction?

Just know that your computer isn't yours. The issues with #Apple's latest OS update laid out very well by @sneakdotberlin but this is not much better on Windows, Android etc.


- discord can delete your account at any time for any reason, cutting you off from all of your servers
- discord will lock out your account and force you to enter in a phone number at their discretion/use of vpns
- discord may even demand to talk to you on the phone if you use vpns/tor
- discord regularly reads private dms or private servers to determine account deletion
- messages are not E2E encrypted and there will always be an unencrypted copy stored on their servers
- discord can provide messages to any third party they wish at any time, such as governments or companies without any legal obligation or requirement to let you know
- messages are not deleted when the account is deleted
- discord decrypts voice chats in flight, who knows what they're doing with it, they could have saved every single vc and there's nothing you can do about it:
- discord's app is proprietary so there's no idea of what it could be monitoring on your computer
- discord silently tracks all your activity by default: This probably includes any actions in discord, but also usage patterns like connection times and IP addresses

TLDR: if you oppose censorship, value privacy, or don't want to be datamined out the ass then don't use discord

XMPP is an open-source protocol that supports E2E encryption, offline messages, file uploads, video and audio chats, and more. There are hundreds of clients for all different devices, so if you don't like one then you can always try another. With any of these apps, make sure to enable OMEMO encryption, normally its just a lock icon that you can enable.

A couple of recommendations to get you started:

- Siskin:
- ChatSecure:
- Monal:

- Conversations: Xabber:

- Siskin (iOS/Mac):
- Monal (iOS/Mac):
- Gajim (Windows/Linux):
- Dino (Linux):
I wonder if this'll start an industry transition to ARM. After all, other PC makers do like to copy what #Apple's doing.

A misunderstanding is circulating that the GNU Project demands you run 100% free software, all the time. Anything less (90%?), and we will tell you to get lost—they say. Nothing could be further from the truth. #gnu #freesw #linux

Did you know that farmers have to deal with software licensing just to use their tractors? Imagine not being able to grow food because you didn’t renew your tractor license. Cars are not far behind. We had a TED talk speaker on DL trying to fix that problem. Check it out!

I hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus.

Google banned LBRY Android from the Playstore without warning and for contrived reasons.

This video details their exact communications, reasoning, and hypocrisy.

We believe we are being targeted due to big creators fleeing YouTube for LBRY.

Please share 🙏


Happy 20th Callan!
Thank you so much for being a part of my life; you're such an awesome friend and I really appreciate you :)
I wrote a song, too, which I'm quite proud of :D
