i'm glad this VM usage that i'm struggling to achieve on windows was a major part of the process to getting me back on linux, because windows just fucking sucks

by twitter standards, almost every post on the fediverse is "ratio'd" because we talk to each other here sometimes and rarely boost because we're all already friends

Germany: We have the strictest data protection laws! Our core principle that only a subset of data limited as much as possible should be handled!
Also Germany: Ah, you want to rent an apartment? Submit copies of your passports and payroll slips to 100 different landlords!

Think about how fucked up it is to pay tax on what you eat even if you're broke

@delta I also think that for this to be feasible, protocol specifications need to be made as simple as possible. If your protocol is extremely difficult to implement (see: basically anything involving E2EE at the moment), then that makes the barrier to entry for additional implementations too high and you end up with either everyone giving up and resorting to the one original/reference implementation, or multiple implementations that are just different skins on the same SDK, which isn't much better.

"Decentralized" systems are susceptible to catastrophic failure if every node runs the same software created by a single entity. Open Source doesn't change this. *Social* decentralization and diverse implementations for a protocol provide better resilience and distributed agency.

I'm not sure janky little decentralized services run by actual people have a chance when people have these ridiculous reliability expectations from having being weaned on megacorp services.

It's part of the reason why I sometimes get depressed working on NetBSD, people expect every single possible configuration to work when that's simply not possible with the available developer pool and lack of corporate sponsorship.

Personally I like things to be a little broken. It's a sign of love, and humanity. Like home baked cookies that have turned into one big cookie.
