A Wise White Man's Decision! :) Linux Mint developers: "Snap? Never!"

Part 1. Fedora will be happy without damned Flatpak!

Part 2. Snap: The simple anal-games of "Generation X/Y/X"

We also heard your queries on the topic of snapd. This is a topic which is important to us and we already explained our position last year:

[…] as you install APT updates, Snap becomes a requirement for you to continue to use Chromium and installs itself behind your back. This breaks one of the major worries many people had when Snap was announced and a promise from its developers that it would never replace APT.

A self-installing Snap Store which overwrites part of our APT package base is a complete NO NO. It’s something we have to stop and it could mean the end of Chromium updates and access to the snap store in Linux Mint.

A year later, in the Ubuntu 20.04 package base, the Chromium package is indeed empty and acting, without your consent, as a backdoor by connecting your computer to the Ubuntu Store. Applications in this store cannot be patched, or pinned. You can’t audit them, hold them, modify them or even point snap to a different store. You’ve as much empowerment with this as if you were using proprietary software, i.e. none. This is in effect similar to a commercial proprietary solution, but with two major differences: It runs as root, and it installs itself without asking you.

First, I’m happy to confirm that Linux Mint 20, like previous Mint releases will not ship with any snaps or snapd installed. Second, to address this situation we’ll do exactly what we said we would:

- In Linux Mint 20, Chromium won’t be an empty package which installs snapd behind your back. It will be an empty package which tells you why it’s empty and tells you where to look to get Chromium yourself.

- In Linux Mint 20, APT will forbid snapd from getting installed.

You’ll still be able to install it yourself and we’ll document this in the release notes, but by default APT won’t allow repository packages from doing this on your behalf.

Bonjour à Toutes,
Bonjour à Tous,

Je sollicite de nouveau vos conseils informatico-numériques (la dernière fois, il s'agissait des meilleures distributions LINUX pour deux vieux ordinateurs. Vos réponses ont été précieuses. Il faut que je retrouve ma publication datant de 3 - 4 mois pour commenter, dire ce qui a fonctionné, au bon endroit).
Actuellement, je suis à la recherche d'une adresse de messagerie libre, indépendante, éthique, franco-européenne (locale) et durable; Ceci pour en faire mon adresse principale lorsque je communique avec mes proches (Fami(e)s).

J'ai un peu testé :
. Mailo (...@francemel.fr)
. GMX (...@gmx.fr)
. Zmail du site Zaclys (...@zaclys.net)

J'ai observé, sans me créer d'adresse :
. ProtonMail

J'aimerais qu'un espace nuage, et d'autres outils de bureau (type LibreOffice et bien sûr Calendrier, Contacts) soient accessibles facilement, associés à l'adresse courriel (GMX le fait bien, apparemment). Il faut enfin que l'adresse puisse être utilisée dans Thunderbird (ce qui semble toujours le cas).
Pour l'instant, après mes études des sites et des paramètres webmail, j'ai une préférence pour Zaclys et ses outils, à l'usage des particuliers. Par contre, je n'ai pas réussi à trouver quelle est la limite de contenance en Go des messages chez Zmail ??? Ni les outils adjacents ? Le saurez-vous ?
Que penser de ce choix a priori, comparé à d'autres outils de messagerie internet ?
Suis-je passé à côté d'autres options vraiment Top ?

Dans l'attente de vos conseils ou de vous retour d'expériences, je vous remercie d'avoir prêté attention à ma publication.

Tits here!


Matthew Miller on April 28, 2020
https://fedoramagazine.org/announcing-fedora-32/
It’s here! We’re proud to announce the release of Fedora 32. Thanks to the hard work of thousands of Fedora community members and contributors, we’re celebrating yet another on-time release.

If you just want to get to the bits without delay, head over to https://getfedora.org/ right now. For details, read on!

All of Fedora’s Flavors

Fedora Editions are targeted outputs geared toward specific “showcase” uses.

Fedora Workstation focuses on the desktop. In particular, it’s geared toward software developers who want a “just works” Linux operating system experience. This release features GNOME 3.36, which has plenty of great improvements as usual. My favorite is the new lock screen!

Fedora Server brings the latest in cutting-edge open source server software to systems administrators in an easy-to-deploy fashion. For edge computing use cases, Fedora IoT provides a strong foundation for IoT ecosystems.

Fedora CoreOS is an emerging Fedora Edition. It’s an automatically-updating, minimal operating system for running containerized workloads securely and at scale. It offers several update streams that can be followed for automatic updates that occur roughly every two weeks. Currently the next stream is based on Fedora 32, with the testing and stable streams to follow. You can find information about released artifacts that follow the next stream from the download page and information about how to use those artifacts in the Fedora CoreOS Documentation.

Of course, we produce more than just the editions. Fedora Spins and Labs target a variety of audiences and use cases, including the Fedora Astronomy Lab, which brings a complete open source toolchain to both amateur and professional astronomers, and desktop environments like KDE Plasma and Xfce. New in Fedora 32 is the Comp Neuro Lab, developed by our Neuroscience Special Interest Group to enable computational neuroscience.

And, don’t forget our alternate architectures: ARM AArch64, Power, and S390x. Of particular note, we have improved support for the Rockchip system-on-a-chip devices including the Rock960, RockPro64, and Rock64.

General improvements

No matter what variant of Fedora you use, you’re getting the latest the open source world has to offer. Following our “First” foundation, we’ve updated key programming language and system library packages, including GCC 10, Ruby 2.7, and Python 3.8. Of course, with Python 2 past end-of-life, we’ve removed most Python 2 packages from Fedora. A legacy python27 package is provided for developers and users who still need it. In Fedora Workstation, we’ve enabled the EarlyOOM service by default to improve the user experience in low-memory situations.

We’re excited for you to try out the new release! Go to https://getfedora.org/ and download it now. Or if you’re already running a Fedora operating system, follow the easy upgrade instructions. For more information on the new features in Fedora 32, see the release notes.

MORE TITS!

reCaptcha


W3C has published an extensive list of reCAPTCHA alternatives:

https://www.w3.org/TR/turingtest/

W3C is requesting feedback for the document, if you'd like to make suggestions, please open an issue: https://github.com/w3c/apa/issues

"Google wants you to think reCaptcha is the ONLY tool. That way they can get more user data."

People should start to complain to every site which is using recaptcha, because it is just one of google's data hamstering tools (which fingerprints users, gets device information, ip and many more private data).

There are alternatives, don't use this google service!

"Free software has many important achievements, nearly all of which have greater substance than “open source–” Free software is more honest, less corrupt, more thoughtful, and will ultimately be more effective at fighting non-free
software than its shill counterparts in the well-paid, often-bribed open-washing world."
