I'll play with this for sure when I get some hardware

If you are using Tutanota desktop clien tand have that "cannot access secret storage message" (link to faq: tutanota.com/faq/#secretstorag) you can use KeepassXC to be your secret storage provider

How often do you take snapshots of your / folder? I'm just having one which is snapshot of last successful boot, reasoning is working kernel and GPU driver. I've made script which deletes old snapshot, takes new one and changes its permissions to write, I can boot from it in GRUB menu. I've seen people take many snapshots but I'm wondering whats reasoning behind it.

If you are using same folder encrypted with Cryptomator on both Windows and Linux there might be problem with write permissions inside decrypted folder. Solution is to chown encrypted folder and you will have your permissions when you decrypt it

I think people will think more than ever to switch to new version of Windows. Secure boot is must, internet connection for installing windows is also must and tpm chips too. I guess we will see boost in Linux users but not before Windows 10 reaches EOL in 2025

If your grub won't add other systems to boot menu just add this line in /etc/default/grub file:
GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false and rebuild grub

Cryptomator works fine with WinBTRFS formatted hard drive on Windows. If you use same hard drive on both Windows and Linux with Cryptomator and you don't want low transfer speeds WinBTRFS driver is a solution. Link:

I've bought ARK: Survival Evolved game on Steam, it should be Linux native but when run without Proton compatability its just buggy and slow. Kinda dissapointed, never had problems with Linux native games. It works fine with Proton and anti cheat engine disabled.

I would like to write some code behind GUI and have formatted document (which consists mostly of math expressions) as results of execution. My idea is: Python (backend), Qt5 (GUI) and Latex for building formatted documents. There are probably some libraries for Python-Latex interaction but do you know a better way to do this? Any ideas appreciated

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

about:config
pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

Linux Foundation has been quietly developing a project that might solve the supply chain attacks that are now on the rise - basically, a cryptographic transparency log of signed artifacts such as libraries, packages etc. It's in early phase but looks very promising
