Flavor leads (apparently) agree

Press X to doubt

Ubuntu asking its flavors to stop using something because it doesn’t is a head scratcher. Flavors regularly use things Ubuntu doesn’t, things you could argue are more intrinsic to an “Ubuntu experience”, like installers, login managers, icon themes etc. Why single out Flatpak?

IMO Canonical wants to make snap like google play, where people sell stuff and they take a 20-30 percent commission


Ardour has been making good money by charging for binaries, maybe other projects could use the approach (e.g. the goal of making 8k in february was reached).


Might be worth mentioning oolite which is a modernization of the source code, I played it a lot (basically finished all the content not in the mods), good game.


He is getting at least 2600 a month now, so things seems ok, this is another example of how important fundraising is.


I just hope they will do good UX research, I don't want some overly opinionated UX design that will be not very usable and hurt the popularity of the project (I think that's what happened to amarok , GNOME 3 also comes to mind).

Reminder that there are 2 mental health communities available at your disposal to accommodate multiple parts of the mental health/wellness spectrum (

I have created two specific mental health communities, one for positive and/or constructive discussion of mental health and wellness, and one to provide an outlet for people's unpleasant/destructive thoughts (sometimes voicing them will help temporarily quiet them if you are in acute distress)....


one to provide an outlet for people’s unpleasant/destructive thoughts (sometimes voicing them will help temporarily quiet them if you are in acute distress).

That sounds like a problematic issue, reddit already has a problem with communities for support where "ppl who suck at X give advice to other people who suck at X). These types of communities might reinforce unhealthy attitudes, I suggest you at least link to sources that have at least trained volunteers (my country have those, and the US probably also has it), maybe also links to other resources like free online CBT/ACT therapy resources or books.


The biggest difference between Mastodon and Twitter is that there is no “algorithmic boosting” of any kind – there is no manipulation of your natural newsfeed. Because Mastodon doesn’t boost for engagement, there tend to be a lot fewer hostile arguments, conspiracy theories, and celebrity fawning.

On the other hand it is a lot harder to find interesting content, even when compared to something even moderately "algorithmic" like lemmy.


If you work on open source your basically doing work for free, there is a limit to how much you can do.

You can put a message when posting an issue, saying the project is missing maintainers, and existing maintainers have limited time to work on the project.

Another option is to use something like rysolv, if people don't want to put money to have the issue fixed (even money that will go to some nonprofit feeding hungry africans) it's probably not that important. The issue getting the most money indicates it is at least somewhat important.


Yeah, i posted this, i basically constantly steal posts from lemmy and put them on reddit lol.

Having some extension showing reddit (teddit?) posts from links posted on lemmy or the other way around could be useful.


I think the best thing to do right now is to increase the active user count, then worry about conversion rate (basically percentage of users who contribute, which seems not good enough for lemmy)

e.g. fosstodon has about 42,934 MAU and makes about $3,236 (about 13 users per dollar).

for mastodon it's 2706053 MAU and makes about $33,627 (about 80 users per dollar).

for lemmy it seems like it's 7.6 users per dollar , but i think that could be higher because the donate button seems almost invisible.


I am in some pretty high quality facebook groups, meta made 118B in the last year, it's very far from dead, If we want to build something better i think some modesty would be useful.
