Thanks to @gamingonlinux, I was able to switch to a self-hosted setup as my backup solution. is really amazing.

@thelinuxEXP It seems someone at ZDNet watches your channel! 😁 They appear to have taken your advice on recommending 'desktops', not distros.

This. No one is ever saying GNU/Linux . And then you'd have to add all the other projects that are as important, if not more than the GNU tools. Everyone knows that when you say "Linux", you mean the entire OS, based on context, everything else is pedantic.

Hey security friends! After much encouragement, Bitwarden has joined the Fosstodon family πŸ€—

@codeberg I use a 'throwaway email provider' with both GitLab and GitHub because I don't want my real email address to be associated with my commits in a public repository. Is there another way to authenticate myself besides using my actual email address to sign up?

@Tutanota The message counter for 'Inbox' doesn't update when I read my emails. I am using Tutanota Desktop on Linux Mint 20.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but a friendly reminder that a PC is a personal computer.
A PC doesn't by default mean "a computer with Windows installed."

The Steam Deck represents a perfect opportunity for veteran #Linux users to show their friendly, supportive and welcoming side.

Let's not screw this up.

Great news! Cryptomator is now finally available on Flathub as a Flatpak app. πŸŽ‰ Huge thanks to Ralph Plawetzki for his amazing contribution, which pushed this big effort across the finish line. πŸš€
