Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap.
Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues.
* Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work
* I get *notifications* for pending updates
* Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer
This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.
My family is fairly well off, and nobody needs anything.
We have a poor tradition of buying gifts nobody needs.
I've spoken with some of my family and we're going to change this to make Christmas about giving to those in need. Unfortunately, everyone has slightly different interests and I'm having a hard time coming up with impactful charities for various family members.
**Does anyone know of some (global or Canadian) charities in these categories?**
* Human Rights/Poverty
Some charities I've got so far:
* [The Water Project](https://thewaterproject.org/) (Human Rights)
* [Software Freedom Conservancy](https://sfconservancy.org/donate/) (Technology)
* [Godot](https://godotengine.org/donate) (Technology)
* [Doctors Without Borders](https://www.doctorswithoutborders.ca/donate) (Human Rights)
Any suggestions appreciated (:. Share this post with your family if you want to start something like this too!
I tried my hand at making some basic logos for this community:
Thoughts/suggestions? I didn't have too many ideas on what to try (the Lemmy mascot isn't the easiest to fit into things 😛), but if anyone has another idea I'll try it :)
Telemetry is disabled by default, but can be found in the System Settings => User Feedback. It's a great way to passively give back to the developers of KDE, and you have REALLY simple controls on how much telemetry you give!
I'm personally the kind who always enables telemetry *when asked*, but KDE really goes above and beyond to not tell you about it, and have it off by default.
