What is your budget ? There is Fairphone 3 and Volla, which both can run LineageOS and Ubuntu Touch (And Volla can run SailfishOS). https://volla.online/ https://www.fairphone.com/en/ https://ubports.com/devices/promoted-devices You might prefer LineageOS but just mentioning Ubuntu Touch just in case. Ubuntu Touch might not be your cup of tea, especially if you want to use all kind of Androids apps, but it comes with different developers (LineageOS development per phone is sometimes pretty uncertain, I’ve had phones where LineageOS development for dropped) and community.



e-phone vs volla question

E foundation sells /e/-GS290 as their cheapest pre installed phone. If I search in the LineageOS wiki or the MicroG downloads I cannot find a download for that, even though the LineageOS stats page for amount of known installs is there. The Volla phone appears also to be a GigaSet phone, but more ex…




iirc I’ve used the F-droid app to create one, like mentioned here : https://lemmy.ml/post/45345/comment/24546 I guess I was inspired by some avatars seen on Mastodon.


Privacy question Twitch

Hi all, in these covid-19 crisis times I would like to support some streamers on Twitch by following and sub-ing, but Twitch does ask for a birthday (besides email address) with sign up. I did some searching and it is not clear to me what happens when I would fill in a well known 1st of January 1970…

Lemmy rocks ! Rock on ! && Congrats and thanks !









Reddit is a cash driven, ad-based, closed sourced centralized platform (In the past I’ve shared a Reddit link on Mastodon. On of the replies was that I posted a GROSS link. That was insightful. I never realized that it was that bad for people who do not use ad-blockers). Lemmy is open source, and aims to have federation working in the future to be able to be decentralized.


Indeed. People have been complaining about The GIMP name for years, and several designers and artist have been reluctant about using it. I am glad that Glimpse made a difference in the wider adoption of open source software usage.











In the past some people have embraced GMO with the advertisement idea that it can “solve world hunger”. In that rude statement lies hidden violence. There is simply enough food worldwide, but the distribution of it is not equal. How about stopping post-colonization altogether and give “third world” countries the respect and support they have always deserved. GMO is an artificial “1st world” product to make the rich countries richer and has a devastating effect on the ecological system at large.


The films are just an example to show more about small scale agriculture versus super large mono culture. And large mono culture is what Monsato stands for. It is a little bit similar with large supermarkets pushing away small grocery stores.



Looks interesting.

Gives a blank page with JS disabled though. That is a bit weird because the source code page states :

  • No ads or sponsored content
  • No javascript
  • No cookies

Nevertheless it looks good so far. Cool that SDF is hosting this.


woaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah ! :)

Till the beginning of this week cross-posting was only available for Premium Members. Because of the grant the developers have listened to their hearts and relaxed the threshold. 😇 Enjoy it while you can !





SearX and MetaGer are open source. I find MetaGer reasonably okay for my searches (I was not too happy with SearX instances results). YaCy is also open source (Java based) and as a bonus it can be used for local search.
