An Open Letter To Open-Source Devs & Software Companies

We are currently seeing interest in and rise both commercially and from a user's standpoint. However, this has resulted in some negative consequences where large corporations are attempting to control the infrastructure that holds FOSS projects together. (Eg: ) As a community that has strongly supported your work, we request that you consider the future of our community when making vital decisions.

COVID-19 is causing many of us to stay at home and practice 'social distancing'. Use Jitsi Meet to keep in touch with friends and family as well as to hold company/team meetings and webinars. Check it out here:

@Tutanota @protonvpn @protonmail The Librem 5 is a new platform by @purism that aims to provide their users with a surveillance-free smartphone. While it still has a long way to go, many would agree that it has potential. As privacy and security oriented services, it would be invaluable for your users and the entire and community if you officially supported it. We await your response. ๐Ÿ˜€

We all know that is not always the prettiest solution to our daily needs. What if we could change that? What if we could motivate the developers to put more time and energy into building better, sleeker and more functional software that adheres to everything we love about FOSS? That is exactly what the Elementary OS team plan on doing. Support their cause and become a backer: Please share this with others.

It has been here for some time now and it still seems to be struggling to deliver the kind of content one would expect from YouTube, Vimeo and other proprietary services. The future of LBRY seems to be bleak. Will LBRY succeed? ๐Ÿค”

The poll has ended and the results are in. While Firefox was what everyone voted for, there is hardly enough votes (only 11 votes) to make viable conclusions. However, Firefox is a commendable privacy-friendly browser. It is with open APIs, comes with 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' by default and is a generally fast browser. Just remember to follow this guide:
