So, umm, why on earth do browsers need notifications anyway? Oh, right, the unthinking expansion of web "standards".

A framework to allow synchronisation between devices on a local network. Because why should I need “the cloud” to synchronise my agenda between my laptop and my phone which are in the very same room on the same WAN?

So in short: Bonsai, but production-ready

@sir it's so so so much worse than that, because when logging into a mainframe from a thin client you still had a fairly unified and composable environment: things were scriptable, most things were files, you could pipe stuff around

we now have like... a thin client that connects to a bunch of completely siloed and more or less useless services, which is categorically less powerful and incredibly uninteresting

The inscription was found in several places on the far side of the moon. Written in cuneiform, it said:
"We have seen you, and do not doubt you will one day find these words. We give you the same advice some unknown space travellers gave us, long ago.
Persevere.
Persevere."

Anyone who complains about Nvidia issues on Wayland (or Linux in general!) has a moral obligation to boycott their business. Wayland developers have told you exactly why Nvidia is not supported, and who is to blame. Harassing Wayland devs because they have a name and a face you can harass, rather than boycotting the faceless multi-billion dollar company who is responsible, makes that person an asshole and a shitty consumer.

Nvidia is the one who deliberately engineers cryptographic solutions to subvert the free software driver. Nvidia is the one who refuses to collaborate with the community on standardization. Nvidia is the ONLY GRAPHICS VENDOR WHICH IS NOT UPSTREAM.

If you spent $1,000 on a GPU which became a brick when you tried to use Wayland on it, that's on YOU. Not on Wayland. Letting your confirmation bias protect your ego from the possibility that you made a mistake and turning that feeling into harassing FOSS developers and spreading misinformation about their work is FUCKED UP and needs to stop.

Periodic reminder that climate change isn't primarily due to small, individual choices. It's the large-scale, systematic choices of our society.

Also, you should support nuclear power.

"The Dragon spacecraft also runs Linux with flight software written in C++. The ship's touchscreen interface is rendered using Chromium and JavaScript."

The Dragon interface is an Electron app? Thanks, I hate it.
