Today on This Is the Year Of Linux on Desktop, I try to install Flatpak on Majaro Linux running on the Pinebook.
“Choose a provider for xdg-desktop-portal-impl:

Man, Apple must be shaking in their boots.

This makes me sad. Of all the places you'd think you could avoid proprietary platforms, the Free Software Foundation would have been at the top of the list. 😞
@eldaking This is exactly why I get massively set off by issues in proprietary software but am super patient with issues in libre.
When there's a problem in proprietary software I often feel like it's an attack on me, either by way of deliberate feature restriction, or unwillingness to route my payments to the actual software I paid for.
But bugs in libre mostly make me think, well I'm sure they're doing their best, I love them just for making this and sharing it with me.

Me: cool, I appreciate that, thanks

Namecheap: please fill out this survey to tell us how we're doing
Me: sure, I'm happy to provide some feedback

* How many people live in your house
* How many dependents do you have
I lost it at "Still not impressed? You are an #Emacs user, right?" 😂 http://www.terminally-incoherent.com/blog/2012/03/21/why-vim/ #Vim
Oh it worked!
"#Linux is my creative work daily driver, on 95% #libre and #FOSS tools. A few years ago it was the opposite, I was on 95% proprietary tools. It is often said that you cannot be on Linux if you do #creative work for a living, but I have transitioned across the last few years and love it. With the advances in #librecreative software the workflows just keep getting better and better. This collection shows some snapshots of my setup and how I use it."
I am so happy that I chose #Namecheap as my domain host.
I just noticed there's a De-Googling guide at the bottom of my DDG search results page. How handy! https://spreadprivacy.com/how-to-remove-google/
