After one years torturing myself with #Gnome3, #PopOS (#Ubuntu) I decided that I want come back to something closer to #Debian but without #systemd therefore there are two main options:
  • Devuan
  • MX Linux
#Devuan - pros: it has a testing release that follows strictly Debian; cons: some software are blacklisted because require systemshit.

#MxLinux - pros: stable release plus backports; cons: MX tools which enlarge the attacking surface;

Since #Flatpak is able to provide all my favorite software constantly updated it is the first time that I am considering to use a stable release and using just Flatpak for those software that I want up to date.

Top 5 Open Source Video Conferencing Tools for Remote Working and Online Meetings


You will find several video conferencing tools available online. Some are tailored for professional use and some for daily casual conversations. However, with hundreds of options to choose from, security and privacy is often a concern when picking a video conferencing app or service. Among the list of options, what’s usually the best and the most secure service?

Well, all (or most of them) claim to provide the best possible security and privacy. But you know that this cannot be taken at face value. Fortunately, at It’s FOSS, we focus on open-source solutions and privacy-friendly options.

Glad to see Nextcloud Talk also on the list.

Creating Virtual Machines in QEMU instead of VMware or Virtualbox


I've been using Virtualbox for a while now on Linux to run Windows if I needed to (that is basically unnecessary now with most games running fine in Steam under Linux now), but Virtualbox has had some oddities with the graphics transparency since the last few updates (noticeable on Windows menus and in Steam).

So I thought I'd try out QEMU - well firstly graphics are 100% and secondly it seems to use less resources. But it is a bit different to use. You also install guest tools inside the Windows guest (called Spice tools) and configuration is a lot more powerful and flexible, but with that comes a little more complexity than Virtualbox.

Chris' video below is well worth watching to see how to quickly get QEMU going with a basic Windows 10 and file sharing. Note you can also do a Samba share from the Linux side. But I do like the way QEMU (or Virtual Machine Manager) does a lot of changes on the fly.

Note you can also migrate an existing Virtualbox file into a KVM VM using the qemu-img c... Show more...

Messed up


I have a connection to wq-in-f104.1e100.net and I cannot tell why.

This whole modern computing is truly messed up. Why does it bother me?
Well, 1e100 - does it ring any bells? No?

This means 1*10^100 = googol. This is where google's name comes from.

And no, this not safe browsing, I don't even have a browser open. Let me also say that I avoid every google service or product. Now this unencrypted connection is still there. Brave New World.

DIY Open Source Stream Deck (Typically Used By YouTubers) Does It Without Touch Screens


Adam Welch has built macro pads in the past out of pre-fab key matrices and handfuls of Cherry MX clones. But all the stickers and custom keycaps in the world wouldn’t make those macro pads as versatile as a stream deck — those visual shortcut panels with tiny touchscreens for each button that some streamers use to change A/V settings or switch between applications.

Let’s face it, stream decks are expensive. But 0.96″ OLED displays are not, and neither are SMD tactile buttons. Why not imitate a screen deck on the cheap by making it so the screens actuate buttons behind them?
