idk about you but if you sell me a computer with a processor whose documentation I can't read on a board whose schematics I can't buy and which I can't repair, which is only designed to run software I can't audit or change

in what sense do I actually own that computer?

I spent a couple hours with Kubutu and KDE Plasma, and I'm very impressed! Plasma is very beautiful and has so many options to fine-tune the experience, which is presented in a very refined way.

Next time I have to install a new OS or come across a spare machine, I will hop on board ๐Ÿ˜€ !

@mousebot @hankg The cost might seem like the obvious reason, but fees to ARM are pretty minor compared to R&D and physical manufacture.

The real enabler is not no-royalties-due, it's no-permission-required. It's the same strength that underlies free software.

Anyone who needs a new and weird chip to do something special can pick up RISC-V for the non-special part and get world-class tools working with their prototype from day zero.

The explicit prior permission combined with an architecture based on four decades of lessons learned makes RISC-V a no-brainer for most kinds of research endeavors, academic or commercial.

Anyone working on a project with some longevity will have a far easier time finding spare parts 10 or even 20 years from now if they build on a design that anyone has the rights to reproduce.

๐ŸŽ‰ Happy anniversary KDE! For this occasion, I painted this artwork (using #krita on #kubuntu, of course).

Soon my YouTube channel will hit 20 000 subscribers. That's pretty amazing. You've been a great community and I couldn't do it without you. Here's a little collage of thumbnails from the videos I've made over the years.
Thank you! <3

Currently, I'm juggling my time between three projects: TRBot's 2.4 release, chiptune music, and a WIP game prototype.

I hope to show off the game in the near future. It's made in Godot, which I'm still learning - and enjoying!

@ademalsasa While the official Jitsi is today owned by a US company and the main instance uses Google tracking, there are many free instances, as long as Jitsi stays free. For Germany, I use or the lists of Jitsi and BigBlueButton on to find one available really free instance. examined the main Jitsi instance.

Great move. I likey that ๐Ÿฅฐ
Must emphasize this for us, too:

New track, titled "Mountain"! Though you've come a long way, there are still more hurdles to overcome.

I'm restructuring my Funkwhale to organize my tracks into proper albums. If a link to one of my tracks is broken, chances are it'll be in a new spot on my Funkwhale profile.

Another new track, this one being "RobotFactoryV2". I love revisiting old tracks and seeing how I can build upon them. What do you think?

I'm in a creative slump regarding this one chiptune track I'm working on. If I can't pick it up in another day, I'll start on a new tune and come back to it later.

version 2.4 is coming along nicely - take a look at the Kanban board:

New features include comments in the input syntax, greatly improved performance, and a WebSocket event dispatcher to allow external applications to read TRBot events.

It is so nice when technology works.

Got myself some train tickets (I like trains! ๐Ÿš† ), confirmation went to my e-mail address which I self-host using @yunohost.

I read the e-mail in the Mail app on my @nextcloud instance (on the same yunohost server), and of course it helpfully suggested I add the travel dates and relevant info into my Nextcloud calendar.

We *can* have nice things. Anyone who says #FLOSS cannot be user-friendly is lying through their teeth.
