A sad day for #FreeSoftware, #Kerala forgets its legacy in leading the world and falls for Google's 'free of cost' service.

I think we should educate teachers and general public about dangers of surveillance capitalism where you pay with your data, privacy and even at the cost of losing our political agency to big companies. #Google is providing 'Free of Cost' only because they know to make money out of people's data and has a monopoly in online ads. Would you join me?

A bully does not understand how solidarity works. When people see the pain of others, they want to do their bit to relieve it. When they see injustice, they oppose it.

Someone who sees protest and violence only as a means to power cannot understand this.

Installed VScodium (FOSS VSCode) again after almost 2 years to see if I'm missing out on anything. Turns out I'm not. Emacs has really spoiled every other text editor/IDE for me.

Does Redhat's recent move on the CentOS project feel like a similar but different version of Microsoft's Embrace, Enhance and Extinguish?

Had a chance to try windows 10 PC after so many years at a friends place. I must say. What an abomination it has become. It goes out of its way to be in your way of work, specially if you have a wacom plugged in. Settings scattered around all over. People say Linux is quirky. 🤦🏾‍♂️

Mothers are special people. They know how you feel from the way you sound over a phone call. Well they've been seeing you almost constantly from your birth. They also use this incredible amount of information to tell you exactly the right to make you do exactly what they want.

Any #nodejs developers interested in taking up this challenge?

Build #yarn 1.x with #babel 7.x

Yarn 2.x already moved to babel 7.x but there is no stable release for yarn 2.x and it is completely different from yarn 1.x.

This will help us ship yarn in #debian (we already moved everything else to babel 7.x but could not port this yet) for next stable release bullseye.

It would be useful to nodejs developers to make initial installation of yarn easy.

Wonder how many years Python 5 to Python 6 transition took.

How do you measure your percentage experience? Like I've seen it in a bunch of personal websites and never really understood the logic behind it.
I mean what does that even mean...

"96% experienced in React"
What does that mean? 96% of what?
