@JoshStrobl Thanks for the new blog post, these are great new to begin the week :)
I'm eager to install Solus to a relative and to a friend.

Thanks @JoshStrobl for acknowledging that accented letters shouldn't be sorted after "normal" characters.
I'm [1] very happy to see the following issues fixed 😀

@admin@tedomum.net Instance PeerTube down pour commencer le lundi de bonne humeur ^^"

About not having to reinstall every few years, this is the good case. Worse is ending with an unmaintained distro, and after a while having unsupported packages (highest impact will be the browser)
And even in the good scenario, before the end of the support period, the software can get quite old. (i.e. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)

@elementary @Linux4Everyone
But I know whether making a rolling release distro or an upgradable one in a reliable way for the general public is a massive technical challenge.
I'm still searching for my two local LUGs such distros to someday avoid giving the users an OS with a literally planned obsolescence.

@elementary Hi, :) the interview in episode 7 of @Linux4Everyone is sparking my interest about Elementary.
Will there be a way to upgrade from version 5 to the next major version that will be based on Ubuntu 20.04?
Because not having to reinstall every 2, 3 or 4 years is something very valuable for the user experience. And the accessibility of the OS to people without the technical level and involvement to do such operations.

@Linux4Everyone Ho, you are also on Mastodon! :D
I love your podcast and hoped that someday you will also be reachable by a libre social network. Thanks setting that up :)

@gbryant Mozilla mainly works Firefox but not only but still has 1000+ employees and a 560 millions USD revenue.

VLC core devs have a company where they sell service around VLC (integration, implementation of a new codec) which is profitable enough to give them time to work on VLC (I couldn't find a written source, don't hesitate to ask if you want more details)

@gbryant Hi :) Thanks for this video: invidio.us/sYFRWjBT7Og

Comment: @6:38 Actually a lot of people are paid and that's a good thing because doing non-libre software during the day and doing libre software only at night is sad. So the advance de professionalization is great.
For example, most of the work on the kernel is on payroll: thenewstack.io/contributes-lin

@filipo ĉu la financado de tiu ĉi Mastodon instanco enordas? Mi memoras ke mi donacis al vi pere de @Liberapay
sed mi ne plu retrovas ĝin. Kaj mi zorgas pri certigi ke mi kontribuas al tiu ĉi instanco ^^

@JoshStrobl And because I love Solus and I have high hopes and would like to contribute to it's sustainability.

@JoshStrobl Hi :) Since @SolusProject isn't ready to receive funding as a project, would you be willing to do so as an individual? I think it's very important that users could pay for their libre software so people that want this to be their job could. Or at least part time job. Because ethical software built unpaid doesn't look so ethical about work conditions ^^"

GitHub a ajouté Liberapay aux plateformes de financement supportées dans le fichier `FUNDING.yml` : github.blog/changelog/2019-06-

Hi, will your PeerTube instance be maintained? Or should I migrate my videos?

@TheKinrar Hi :) Did something bad happened to your PeerTube instance? (video.atlanti.se/)

In last week's blog post we said we were working on enabling a donor to send money to multiple creators at once instead of having to make multiple payments. Today we're happy to announce that this is now done for donations to European creators processed through Stripe.

Eventually we should be able to the same thing for donations to non-European creators as well, but we don't know yet when that will become possible.

To renew your donations, go to liberapay.com/about/me/giving/

C'est pénible: J'ai plein de bouquins papier que j'aimerai avoir sur ma liseuse. Mais vu que je les ai déjà je vois pas pourquoi je devrai les acheter à nouveau. C'est bien un exemple ou la taxe pour la copie privée sert vraiment à rien.
