Welcome to the Freedom Island


I dearly welcome you, my friend. If you haven't yet been here before, I can be your guide. Please follow me this way and I will show you around -- and if you like our humble society, you can stay.

Our island consists of three main parts:
  • The Permissive. Our common people. The good citizens who lead honest lives and whose daily bread is sharing and helping a neighbour, while not asking much in return -- a simple attribution is enough.
  • The Copyleft. These are our warriors, the protectors to whom we owe our existence here. As very skilled hackers they developed a weapon by hacking the legal system they opposed to work in their favor instead. They wield the weapon now known as the GPL proudly, and without getting in actual fights very often keep reminding us we are safe here.
  • The Public Domain. Residents in this part of island have achieved Nirvana. They are the spirituals and an example of perfection to strive for.

A friendly reminder: #proprietary #games are #proprietary software like any other. With #surveilance, #DRM, enslavement, people control, awful business practices.

Another friendly reminder: small cute #indie proprietary games and #abandonware are proprietary games as well, with the same goals and ambitions. Even if you don't feel a slave, you are, or at very least are helping the enslavement machinery.

Letting your kids play proprietary games is just like handing them drugs to create a life long addiction.

#native #gnu #linux #gaming is not enough. The games have to be #FOSS, without any compromises.

If you're already addicted and can't stop right away, that's okay, as long as you make steps to slowly eliminate the habit. Admitting addiction is the first step, but you must not stop there. Finish that game you're playing right now and then uninstall it. Replace it with a #free one instead.

Jellyfin: Free Software Emby Media Server Fork Is Announced After Emby Becomes Proprietary #FOSS
 
#TIL about this #art student who was once short on money (surprise surprise) and decided to make some by contributing to #freeculture. He started a campaign to create painted fantasy portraits of those who supported him. The campaign quickly got attention and suddenly the most influential people of the #free culture world, such as Larry #Lessig, are backing the campaign. Richard #Stallman (aka #RMS) himself joins in too, but on one condition: the game that is to use the portraits, which is named OSARE (Open Source Action RP Engine), must embrace the term #freesoftware as opposed to #opensource. And so it happened. After four years of development version 1.0 of the #FLARE #RPG was released (I have played it and what agreat game it is). The portraits of #FOSS giants are included. Can you spot Lessig?

Did you remember the dark time of Internet Explorer 6, when it was the dominator bullying all the competitors with all its own tags and did you remember yourself struggling every day to make your standard #W3C website working on it?

Well, a new dark era is coming in from the far, in the upside is world of today #microsoft is dropping off #Edge and its pretty decent html engine (at least the first and only one standard compliant ever made by M$) and the Chackra JavaScript in favor of #Blink and the #V8 JavaScript engine.

Qubes OS: The Operating System That Can Protect You Even If You Get Hacked





Qubes takes an approach called security by compartmentalization, which allows you to compartmentalize the various parts of your digital life into securely isolated compartments called qubes.

This approach allows you to keep the different things you do on your computer securely separated from each other in isolated qubes so that one qube getting compromised won’t affect the others. For example, you might have one qube for visiting untrusted websites and a different qube for doing online banking. This way, if your untrusted browsing qube gets compromised by a malware-laden website, your online banking activities won’t be at risk. Similarly, if you’re concerned about malicious email attachments, Qubes can make it so that every attachment gets opened in its own single-use disposable qube. In this way, Qubes allows you to do everything on the same physical c... show more
 
Necuno Solutions & postmarketOS collaboration!

postmarketOS is a touch-optimized, pre-configured Alpine Linux based OS with its own packages, that can be installed on smartphones.

Necuno is an upcoming phone with a goal is to give you 100% open source device, from metal to pixel, from hardware to software.

Closed firmware in smartphones is slowing the development of free and open mobile operating systems, but fortunately our FOSS communities, like postmarketOS, are focused on breaking-free from these controlling, unsecure and closed systems.

TWIF 31: A look at app rankings and Briar arrives

This Week In F-Droid 31, Week 47, 2018
In this edition: A look into app rankings and Briar arrives as reproducible build.
There are 16 new and 58 updated apps.

F-Droid is a repository of verified free and open source Android apps, a client to access it, as well as a whole “app store kit”, providing all the tools needed to set up and run an app store. It is a community-run free software project developed by a wide range of contributors. This is their story this past week.

A look into app rankings

Mobilsicher looked into how various app stores rank their apps in search results. F-Droid was mentioned as an option that deliberately uses a very simple ranking algorithm, although it’s not very effective. Article in German .

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

Additional examples of the local Linux love is a premium webzine FOSSNaija (tailored by Alexander Wayne Omorokunwa) which has been around for quite some time.

25 things that are better because of Linux (and open source)


As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the term open source, the underpinnings of open source, from transparency and collaboration to freedom and broad dissemination, have spilled out well beyond the confines of enterprise technology to greatly impact both the world of consumer technology as well as the global business climate at large.

Open source has impacted so much that it’s hard to pick out a handful of the most critical innovations, but we’ve tried. Here are 25 things that Red Hat thinks are better thanks to Linux and open source; some of these may not exist without an open source backbone, while others may have evolved out of necessity, but would likely be unrecognizable to today’s counterparts. So what made their list?
