    Pocket Popcorn Computer — Finally, a handheld Linux device with a high-definition 1080p display and large battery life. Pocket P.C. is your hacker terminal on-the-go.On Flatpak disk usage and deduplication – Will Thompson’s GNOME-ish blog — There is a blog post doing the rounds asserting that Flatpak Is Not The Future. The post is really long, and it seems unlikely that I and the author will ever agree on this topic, so I’m only going to talk about a couple of paragraphs about disk usage and sharing of runtimes between apps which caught my eye.Bustle — Graphical D-Bus message analyser and profiler.Gnome Initial SetupEndless OS Foundation — Our mission is to help all people and communities connect with technology.Will sometimes does other stuff and writes about itFlatpak Is Not the Future - Ludocode — Flatpak calls itself “the future of application distribution”. I am not a fan. I’m going to outline here some of the technical, security and usability problems with Flatpak and others. I’ll try to avoid addressing “fixable” problems (like theming) and instead focus on fundamental problems inherent in their design. I aim to convince you that these are not the future of desktop Linux apps.docker-slim — Don’t change anything in your Docker container image and minify it by up to 30xFlatseal — Flatseal is a graphical utility to review and modify permissions from your Flatpak applications.Bruch with Brent with Stuart Langridge — Brent sits down with Stuart Langridge, co-host of Bad Voltage, for an exploration of open source’s “final mile”, the text and language interface as a UX opportunity, terminals vs. search engines, Darwinian processes and crab-bucketism in software development, and more.Seeking contractors for work on Flathub project — GNOME has a donor who is interested in supporting financial sustainability for app developers and removing barriers to an inclusive ecosystem. Flathub would like to use these funds to work with a contractor for a short-term project and make steps towards supporting application developers being able to request payments (whether donations or subscriptions).

One of my favorite Linux-related podcasts

I enjoy the discussions and topics had on this podcast but I wish they would cover Debian more often. Debian doesn’t get nearly the coverage or respect that it deserves on this show.

Stick to Linux, drop leftist rubbish

Just playing dumb Chris? You known full well Stallman was canceled because of a campaign by an nobody SJW, getting him kicked out of MIT and the FSF by leftist trash and spineless college admins for expressing an opinion she was too dumb or dishonest to understand . A “social contract” for GNU? More leftist drivel? I don’t think so, Stallman isn’t an idiot. Tired of your ignorant leftist opinions.
