Very interesting: karrot.world/#/welcome (and the project: github.com/orgs/karrot-dev/rep - some key components Copyleft, others MIT, others without licenses...)

@karrot very interesting... I'll be exploring this one for sure!

Hello fediverse!

Behind every sustainable FOSS project there's a a community, a bunch of committed individuals, and of course a vision!

Have you met us already btw and do you know what Karrot is all about? Here's the opportunity:
Karrot Days next weekend on the 16th & 17th! 🥳 🥕 🤩

Of special interest to people viewing this perhaps is a session about Karrot as a general community organising tool. You're welcome to check out the sessions and join anyone you'd like:

@be @thelinuxEXP but interested to know how much MSFT have extorted with their exFAT patent (I'm a strong anti-patent advocate - we banned sw patents in NZ - softwarepatents.org.nz)....

@be @thelinuxEXP I'm not talking about any specific patent... but seems to me MSFT's R&D has focused on creating pre-emptive patents which it uses to lock innovation out of entire swaths of computing, rather than improve the world. They also burn obscene amounts of money, and I'd be hard pressed to think of a single identifiable positive innovation they've come up with that has made the world better. Another reason MSFT sucks.

@thelinuxEXP Also worth noting that their *only* 'positive' PR on FOSS is focused on the US. Their overseas offices are still totally proprietary and actively work against FOSS in every context.

@thelinuxEXP they continue to be a completely shit and untrustworthy actor.

I'm impressed, @thelinuxEXP with your video: https:/invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=tJdHAJnKqFs or youtube.com/watch?v=tJdHAJnKqF with the fact you've recognised and included the references to the shittiness of OOXML and MSFT's extortion of Android OEMs via their low quality software patents. It's worth noting that MSFT made at least 10x more $$ from Android than it made from Windows phone. Their ineptitude is staggering - they only make $ from leveraged monopolies, not because they're clever. Ever.

@Mehrad maybe we can get along just fine without the stuff that the big corps are shoving down our throats?

@vik another option you could check is RustDesk.com - it allows you to view a windows desktop remotely... (I have a RustDesk server, too - very cool!)...

@vik hmm - bugger, I thought I'd read it supported screen sharing... but can't see that now... Apologies for the rabbit hole... :(

@vik KDE Connect? (Apparently you can install it on Doze 10)...

Due to recent events, I´d like to ask my fellow Europeans once again to please stop electing fascists.

We´ve tried it. It´s shit.

Kind regards from Germany,

@arin_basu here we see the importance of a secret ballot. But yeah, wow, that would be terrifying.

Depressing to see the ITP marketing shithouse proprietary software that makes us dependent on foreign tech suppliers and puts our data overseas. techblog.nz/2975-Salesforces-b They've lost their way. Not sorry I stopped paying them subs.
