Happy new year. I don't know about you, but I've been using Linux as the sole operating system on my personal desktop and laptop computers since 1992, so this promises to yet year 30 of Linux on the desktop for me.

@feonixrift I'm sure it can run reasonably in 8GiB. I've been running it in 12GiB and then 16GiB and it was ~fine-ish, but I had to be careful which cubes I run simultaneously.

What really kills it is the browsers. And I include any Electron app in that group. Stop writing Electron apps people, for the love of everything that is holy! Just damn stop!

The fact that as a developer someone has 32GiB of RAM to play with doesn't mean it's okay to demand that kind of resources on a user machine.

Facebook is using its army of lawyers to create a Trojan Horse into GDPR law so that they can just demand anybody's private information from any company using the loop hole of "legitimate interest".

Good, this means that it will count as quality time during the .

Why did Deno go with writing a Rust wrapper around V8 instead of using SpiderMonkey from Mozilla? Some decoupling from Servo would have helped everybody.

Dear editors,

When you find that an API has a confusing behavior, please deprecate it when adding a replacement with the same name.

I know that you don't want to break "user space", but don't keep both versions, you just create more confusion.

Qualcomms Always-on-Camera: Das Smartphone sieht bald alles

Man soll sich also wissentlich 24/7 von seinem #Smartphone filmen und belauschen lassen, nur damit es das Display abschalten kann, wenn einem jemand über die Schulter schaut, und den Ton leiser stellen kann, wenn es an der Tür klingelt?

Da fehlen einem die Worte...

Bin einfach nur noch fassungslos. Wie können nach 2 Jahren Pandemie noch solche Fehler passieren? #Omicron

LOL. Nach 2 Jahren Pandemie immer noch nicht in allen Geschäften Bedienung mit Masken.

It boggles the mind that amongst greater competition from AMD and ARM, Intel decides that what it's business model needs is a subscription fee to unlock CPU features:

Just a friendly reminder to all developers here in the Fediverse:

There is no such thing as a "Security Checklist", it's a process and there are moments "when two-factor authentication is not enough":
