"*Fed up?* Join the Fediverse."

Fed up with Facebook and Twitter dictating what you can and can't say online? Then join the Fediverse, the decentralised social media system that they've been hiding from you for years.

The word Fediverse is a portmanteau of…"

See the new logo design we published for Fediverse yesterday morning.

Add Cloudglare to your list if you like, they seem to be training drones with #hCaptcha.

@dsfgs Flyers are a great idea. I've been meaning to create flyers and/or stickers for a long time.

Where can I find that logo and do you have a link to Cloudglare?

@PaulaToThePeople @dsfgs I believe "Cloudglare" is dsfgs's deliberate misspelling of , which is the elephant in the room that your otherwise comprehensive article neglects while actually referring users to , a CF site that should be avoided.

@dsfgs @PaulaToThePeople You propose as a Playstore app compromise. The fake acct still keeps track of all your installations, and if Orbot is not in the loop links your fake acct to your real acct.

@PaulaToThePeople @dsfgs You propose . That would have been a good suggestion a couple years ago but now most of Mint's docs have been jailed in the abusing walled garden of . So I've started moving ppl away from .

@resist1984 Mind to mention what alternative you recommend those you move away from Mint? I find Mint still the much better alternative to any *buntu (let alone the Redmonds & Co). Especially easy to Newcomers, and still flexible enough for those wanting more. A guess: MxLinux?

Always good to name the recommendations – not just the non-recommendations :wink:

@IzzyOnDroid there are hundreds of linux distros which vary wildly on subjective matters of taste. I'm biased toward Debian which is already a listed. Ubuntu is problematic b/c of the PPAs & tendency to serve as an enabler for proprietary s/w as well as unvetted s/w. I'm moving some Mint users to .

@resist1984 PPAs I see less critically. For me the more strong argument is their "snap" enforcement starting with 20.04 – and their bad history of similar things in the past (just think of that Amazon integration with their desktop search in 14.04, which made me quit Ubuntu back then).

I'm Debian focused as well, most of my machines run either Debian or a derivate. Need to give Sparky a look then, for where that question arises. Thanks!

@IzzyOnDroid PPAs are typically a means to deliver binaries. The harm is not just being an enabler for proprietary s/w, it also introduces exclusivity, as genuine Debian does not have stock support for PPAs, deliberately. The PPA apps not only leave out Debian users, but they circumvent the high quality standards that Debian requires of all official pkgs.


@IzzyOnDroid some would say live-and-let-live, but by putting a majority of users on Ubuntu which then facilitates PPAs, this encourages marginalization of Debian users who an app creator would otherwise accommodate. It also cultivates relaxed trust on the part of the users, lowering the quality standards of free software overall.
