♲ Joseph Nuthalapati ✅ (njoseph@social.masto.host):
I'm seeing similarities between the Right to Repair and Free Software.

You cannot repair/(get repaired) your broken software unless you have the source code and the freedom to do so.

Despite the fact that the #gpl licenses are more restrictive than the #bsd and #mit licenses, the corporations prefer use the #gpl, especially version 2, them learned to use the gpl to defend themselves primarily from (ironically) the community and to bully the smaller companies.

One thinks for a corporation the BSD is a better option but how many are the relevant projects based on bsd and that have never released the source code? For me are very few, for example I can only remember the Playstation OS.

#gpl3 is better than gpl2 and for that reason is avoided from the most of the commercial entities. Since the moment that the gpl has been distorted and has been used to sell closed services on top of gpl softwar... show more
 
GIMP 2.10.8 Released - GIMP https://www.gimp.org/news/2018/11/08/gimp-2-10-8-released/

Cool, I have never seen so many improvements in Gimp but I remember the first time that Gegl was introduced that it would have brought relevant improvement in Gimp, even in its development! Keep on going! 😆😆😆

My attempt at integrating #opensource into my #travel #blog. I am using #openstreetmap with #leaflet. My travels consist mainly of #roadtrips throughout mainly the #UnitedStates and #Canada with the occasional trip to a #bordertown in #Mexico. I currently live in #Austin #Texas, but am originally from #Wisconsin so my travels are heavily based there. I’m a bit #newhere and trying to move to more #freesoftware. If you have any tips for my blog I’m definitely open to suggestions as I want to further the #freesoftware movement and also show all the cool parts of the world.

#Hello #People!
when the developers of diaspora will put a "do not like" button?
Perhaps diaspora must continue the capitalist thinking of facebook, by which they trap people from positive emotions... Like, like and more like ..

BUTTON DISLIKE!! FREE DISLIKE!!


P.D.: like if you like I do not like! hehe..

♲ Joseph Nuthalapati (njoseph@social.masto.host):
In a parallel universe where Ubuntu hadn't provided the "install alongside Windows" option (which it did about 10 years ago), I'd be writing enterprise Java on a Windows 10 machine, blissfully unaware of the existence of free software and believing that privacy is dead if Mark Zuckerberg says so.



Dear #purists and #absolutists,

It's great to be clean and pure yourself, but sometimes you have step into the mud to pull out others who are stuck in it.

Introduction


Hi all! I'm #newhere on social.isurf.ca to give Friendi.ca a whirl as a potential destination for this Google+ refugee. I actually registered a few days ago, at about the same time as I joined Diaspora ( @Murray J Brown ), where many other refugees have gone. I've been drawn back upon favourable comments made by @Shelenn Ayres.

First Impressions:
I like the broad interoperability Friendi.ca has with both the Federation (e.g., Diaspora) and the Fediverse (e.g., Mastodon, where I also have accounts: @mjb ).

The look & feel of the Friendi.ca user interface is somewhat more familiar and intuitive (to me, anyways) tha... show more
