I rarely use closed source software. My exceptions are

  • Windows
    • Because I need to run
      • Photoshop
  • DuckDuckGo (actually good FOSS search engine when?)
  • Vivaldi

Vivaldi just works so wonderful. Once you use it you can’t go back (Check out the in browser mail client). I really wish they were FOSS though.

Welcome to lemmy! Hope you enjoy

Dear god I wish I could get off windows. The last thing keeping me is photo editing. I tried gimp but it just does not compete (speaking of witch, open source Flickr/500px clone when?). I am looking for anything, even closed source, that works on Linux and can rival Photoshop/affinity photo.

edit: I get people like me are frustrating, it’s always the next thing, but I truly think I can reluctantly deal with inkscape and make the switch if I find something

I wonder if

News from around the world!

would be better as

News that affects the world!

but for now !unitedstates@lemmy.ml exists

Thank you for the reference 😉🐍

Correct, a very buggy red checkmark, could use improvement but it’s new so its fine

You did not mention any issues, I was wondering what they were

Why must addons be created for free software instead of merging it in? for firefox seems good but for lm I don’t see the need, why was LES not just added to master?

Curious, other than cf obviously being proprietary, what issues do you have?

You might be interested in interledger if you make websites, I make about 15$ a week off of users with coil just by setting up an interledger pointer.

Thank you for responding, I think I will keep this up but in the future lets stick to things with public source trees

Thank you Jeffrey, I will look into the upload crew!

Yes! I think for me it is better than bandcamp, the perfect combination between streaming and ownership. I joined the coop, (5$ membership + some shares). I hope extra funding can help them market themselves and get their service on the streaming service lists that publishers/indie artists use to launch the album on many platforms, because at the moment there is not much of my style of music.

I have conflicting feelings though, I like the spotlight on indie, but I am not sure how well it will work for the platform’s growth to only have artists no one has heard of. I think ideally we have an indie only section and then the hybrid section with a bit of everything

Edit: Bandcamp is closed source!

Thank you for raising. After this comment turns 24 hours old I will remove the post provided OP does not respond

This is a great thread, all these ideas are wonderful.

I would also like to say I want the site admins to keep being the friendly faces they are even as lemmy grows!

[Mod] What is your vision for asklemmy?

Hey! Back after a large break from lemmy and after returning to the community it seems it is more advice focused: what is the best way to learn programming vs story focused what is a bad mistake when you started programming. …

Khan is massively flawed (We need a comprehensive free alternative!)

Today when talking on discord someone mentioned their approval for Khan Academy, stating that it was what allowed them to pass their class. I have too consulted Khan Academy on a few occasions, and I thought the teaching was well done. I believe education is a human right, and I thought I would see …
