"Every Free and/or Open Source Software based/located/maintained/served/related to the USA and its companions IS NOT a Free Software, since there’s no freedom of use, access and study, at-least for 80 Millions of individuals."

If you host any #freesoftware in the USA, please consider moving your code outside USA.

Right now, we have following activities planned:
- "Introduction to Debian bullseye" by AR
- SuperTuxKart gaming session, details to follow.

If you would like to present an event/talk, please get in touch with @avronr , @anupaaj or @sahilister latest by Friday, so that we can plan accordingly.

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

thehindu.com/news/national/ker

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.

എന്താ ചെയ്യണ്ടേ എന്നു വെല്യ പിടുതമൊന്നുമില്ല. പിന്നേ ആകെ ഉള്ളതു കുറച്ചു ആഗ്രഹങ്ങൾ മാത്രമാ.

1. Dopamine receptorസിനു ആവശ്യത്തിനു വിശ്രമം കൊടുക്കുക.
2. കൂടുതൽ വായിക്കുക.
3. കൂടുതൽ കാര്യങ്ങൽ പഠിക്കുക.
4. മണ്ടത്തരങ്ങൾ കുറയ്ക്കുക.
5. വെറുതെ ഇരിപ്പു കുറയ്ക്കുക.

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. 🤦🏾‍♂️

Why do you think XMPP is outdated? Also tons of free software projects that have both tech people and non tech people are run using just IRC and mailing lists. So I don't buy the whole productivity argument.

@sudo @purism@social.librem.one

Firstly XMPP is way better. There very mature clients available that are drop in replacements for something like WhatsApp.
Secondly if we want them to grow we need to be ready to invest in them. Otherwise we're just spectators.

@purism
It's sad to see people put so much money on centralised platforms such as signal. Federated decentralised software is the one way to be absolutely sure that your freedoms aren't hindered and your privacy is respected.

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.
