A summary of the new privacy law in Switzerland (in German, by @digiges), which once again confirms that even though marketing people use Switzerland as if it was great for privacy, it is not. Our marketing still relies on the dead banking secrecy fantasy but in actual fact we're lagging behind the European Union and without the pressure added by the wide net cast by the GDPR we wouldn't even be as far as we are now. Disappointing.
Made yet another blog post about the #pinephone camera, up to part 3 already :)

Scientific publishers are rampant when they hear scientists proposing a fair relationship between the general public and scientists when it comes to peer-reviewing scientific papers and accessing the fruits of the same work funded by tax-payers' money. Hence consider sharing this campaign!

And it's very sad to think that a racist movement was raised with the help of the Organization of the American States #OAS whose arguments are not believed by statisticians.
I remember when the current de facto president, Jeaninne Añez appeared as the face of the Forbes magazine after the overthrown, several months after calling indigenous people "satanic groups".
With the announcement that #GNOME will use a incremental nomenclature starting with the 40 version, i have a fear that they will not upgrade the GNOME Shell to a version that uses GTK4 and is finally separated from Mutter.
I don't know... this Shell is no good performance wise and GNOME 4 was very promising, i'm just a little concerned.
We're excited to announce the official release of GNOME 3.38 "Orbis"! After months of work from the GNOME Community, this release brings many new features and improvements. It also brings us a new release video!
Can citizens be assured that votes of their representatives in the European Parliament are counted as cast? No. Fix? Either cryptographic evidence (math can't be tricked) or transparency (all votes roll call and public). I'll keep insisting on it. https://www.kolaja.eu/en/post/20200914-how_can_i_verify_my_vote_why_remote_voting_needs_to_be_roll_call/
I just released #Tootle 1.0 (Alpha 1), which aims to be a lightweight Mastodon client for Linux desktops and phones

But GNOME does (at least using the #wayland session), and is fantastic.
But, it seems that #xorg applications look blurry, like Chromium or Libreoffice, how unfortunate since Firefox has some performance issues that are very noticeable in the Raspberry Pi, so i need to stick with Chromium.
The perf has decreased just a little, but damn, is totally worth it.
libhandy 1.0.0 released. 🎉
We released it a bit in advance to let application maintainers update their submodules in time for the GNOME 3.38.0 release. 😀 That being said, we expect distros to ship libhandy as any other regular stable library. 😉
I... i am genuinely impressed, i... can't even believe this actually works nice, like...
I'm using the Wayland session, the animations are surprisingly smooth, not the smoothest but i don't think i'm going to disable it because it feels good enough, since i'm using the 8gb model there's not a problem with the RAM consumption and Firefox 80 with #webrender enabled works nice, really nice.
Any particular problem to point out?
So far only pleasant things compared with Raspberry Pi OS. First, Flatpak is well configured and it doesn't show me any message like "applications will not appear in the menu because "n" technology is not well configured".
The only thing that i might complain is the language configuration which doesn't seem to install anything outside english, i need the spanish language to use the spellcheck in Libreoffice, so i guess i'll install an extension.
The GNOME UI is quite fantastic, compared with LXDE is nice as hell, it feels super comfortable and it genuinely surprised me that the performance is this good. I overclocked the Pi to 2 GHz and GPU to 750 MHz but even before the performance was nice.
The installation process was kinda tricky, you can only install Ubuntu server but you can set up the whole desktop experience by installing the "desktopify" tool from github, the process was smooth and nice, yet it requires some knowledge.
Well that's my report Joaquin xD..
