“Defaults don’t matter, you can just change them.”

Really? Why do you think Google gives Mozilla HALF A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR to be the DEFAULT search engine on Firefox if defaults don’t matter? Or give Apple £1.2 BILLION for the same in the UK alone?

Think about it.

Are they idiots?

Or are you?

Well, guess what. Weekly recaps are back, at least for now :)

Some of the usual sections like 3D, CAD, VFX have been omitted this time, and some of the topics like releases of Inkscape, GIMP, and Krita are old news. But there's more :)

I always looking for projects using Microsoft GitHub logo to indicate they are Free Software. Here is a gem I found while browsing the footer of GitHub itself: 😆

They don't even use the OSI logo XD

rocks. 👍 Nothing special happened. Just occurred to me. Just now. Again.

@mray ...Then again, there are a lot of bottlenecks and over-centralizations in free software that I wish more orgs would step up to participate in. I wish community distros would offer Mastodon instances; I wish Mozilla would offer an email service; I wish EFF, OSI, FSF, SPI, and SFC would offer lots of communication services to the community. They don't, which is what lets GMail and Apple Mail and Office365 dominate....

I often forget how much cool public domain stuff out there on the internet, last weekend I spent multiple hours just browsing art on artvee.com, it's like you get to experience being a millionaire art collector but instead of money you just need time and free disc-space.

I found this cool collection of links to #publicDomain #media on wikipedia

It's about time we stopped buying into the propaganda phrase "ad blockers", and started calling user-protection tools like #uBlockOrigin and #NoScript what they are; spy blockers. If I display ads on my website using HTML and CSS, spy blockers won't block those. As far as they know, the text, images, audio, or video that make up the ads could be anything. So what's really being blocked is not ads, but tracking. Thanks to the authors of this site, for pointing this out:
