This image never fails to make me laugh, and I’ve seen it at least 10 times by now.

Lemmur is currently broken. Jerboa is your best bet. You can find an APK on github, or you can get it on F-droid afaik.

This would be beneficial if you’re not a user, but want to watch a video that someone sent you. The main problem is that it lacks the FYP (For you page), which is the endless stream of videos Tiktok’s algorithm thinks you should be interested in.

Obviously, most here would agree that the lack of the FYP is a good thing. Not disagreeing, just thought it was worth mentioning.

Probably never gonna use it as I prefer KDE, but this seems like a great update.

After years of using Linux and recommending it to advanced and casual users alike, the safest option was Linux Mint. Similar interface to Windows, works great out of the box, and has enough GUI menus so that you rarely have to mess with the terminal. 100% recommend it over Ubuntu and PopOS.

What's your favorite book?
Not necessarily a book you can recommend to everyone, just a book you personally like very much. Feel free to mention multiple books if you can't name just one.

What happened with Facebook is a great example on why federation is the future
lemmy.ml is down? No problem! lemmygrad.ml is still online! In the Fediverse, the "single point of failure" is the internet itself.

Ohh okay, might give an Arch based distro a try then. Not Manjaro though, I don’t like the project leaders after the whole treasurer fiasco.

I only own one device, and its the device I also do work on. I’ve been using Debian based distros for 4 years now, and it just works for me. I don’t feel like I’m in a position to change my workflow. Now I think about it, would my workflow change that much? Other than .deb files not working, and using something other than apt, what else is different?

I want to try a new Debian/Ubuntu based distro. Any suggestions?
What I've used so far: 1) Ubuntu 2) KDE neon 3) Linux Mint 4) Debian I don't really like the MacOS feel, so things like ElementaryOS are not an option. I'm eyeing Pop!_OS though, but maybe there are less known distros that are worth a try. Suggestions?

I think this has worked till now because:

  1. Linux’s user base is small, so it isn’t a very attractive to malware developers.

  2. Linux’s userbase is mostly tech savvy people, who don’t do stupid stuff.

But the question is, does it scale up if Linux became mainstream and popular among the tech illiterate?

If i or someone else is interesting in something like investing or dieting and there is no community here then we will not be here.

True, but one thing I think the Lemmy.ml admins is doing wrong is opening the creation of communities to everyone. Lemmy have less than 4k active users, but more than 2000 community. that’s less than 2 users for each community, so its fair to say that its stretched thin.

If I was them, I’d only allow “Community requesting”, where people need to get approval before creating a community. /c/Memes exist? Applying for /c/Dankmemes is rejected. Until there is a substantial number of users, it would remain 1 community per topic. Might be a bit too restrictive for some tastes, but it is necessary imho.

What scares me more is the rate technology is developing, and the lack of any real ethical/philosophical opposing force.

Yeah I’d love that! I have a lot of experience in moderation, as I moderate a few subreddits with a lot of subscribers, including /r/ShowerThoughts. And I’m very active as well.

As you can see in my profile, I’ve been here for only 2 days, but I’m very active and passionate about Lemmy as a whole. I try my best to share good content and promote the community. So I would like to apply to be a moderator here if possible.
