While many free programs have bugs, those bugs and insecurities can be fixed by anybody with a copy, without being forced to rely on the program's developer.

#FreeSoftware gives you the right to share your copy, so if you're not a programmer, you can still benefit from this freedom and fix a bug or insecurity.


When we talk about security, we're talking about being unsure about everything, unless it's proven. While proprietary software can't be checked, #FreeSoftware lets you study the program, share it (e.g. to get help), modify it, and share your modifications and all these are preconditions to make sure a program is secure and #privacy-respecting.

Hi Folks,

I updated my #gemlog about setting up a #Capsule with #FreeBSD and #GIMD adding a section to enable #Fail2ban for SSH connections.

HELP! I need to know which GUI frameworks support accessibility and which ones don't, and to what degree each. Is there some kind of nice list or something? What are the best resources on accessibility in Free Software?

bullseye release planned on 2021-08-14 and the last weeks up to the release (delayed by 2 weeks from earlier release date)

A sad day for #FreeSoftware, #Kerala forgets its legacy in leading the world and falls for Google's 'free of cost' service.

https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/kerala/kite-rolls-out-g-suite-platform-for-online-classes-in-kerala/article35217726.ece

I think we should educate teachers and general public about dangers of surveillance capitalism where you pay with your data, privacy and even at the cost of losing our political agency to big companies. #Google is providing 'Free of Cost' only because they know to make money out of people's data and has a monopoly in online ads. Would you join me?

#Debian created an ecosystem where the software available there is reviewed and trusted, so the system can prioritize flexibility over security. In #Google Play, there are many apps we feel forced to use, despite knowing they are unethical or are tracking us. Google responds by locking down #Android to reduce data leaks, which also reduces the system's flexibility. #FreeSoftware puts the user in control so we can build user-friendly systems without being forced into bad decisions.

Why I like Micro editor


#Micro became my favorite #TUI #editor, I really like it very much!

For me Micro is revolutionary, it approaches itself as a GUI application, it doesn't try to imitate Emacs or VI(M).

Using Micro has been really intuitive, if from a side you lose some easy accessible customization by the other hand you get more powerful because the internal command line.

I put in action some of the recommendations and it was great, I look forward to implement the last ones and it may reach the Nirvana.

For writing #Gemini pages it is practically perfect and with a multiplex terminal you can run a Gemini client like #Telescope or #Amfora, Micro and #MidnightCommander at the same time and you have a distraction-free, super fast and features rich environment to navigate Gemini, writing page and have a lot of fun!

Looking for an easy #multiplex #terminal to use.

For easy I mean:
- intuitive;
- not convoluted key bindings or key combinations;
- easy to memorize.

Thanks!
