So far here is what I like on the hardware side:

very portable 13'' with del; Home; PgUp/PgDn; end keys and a ton of output ports and there is a key to make the camera disable to all programs/services

On the software side: #pop_os has been a nice experience

Stuff I discovered: #Mailspring is beautifully simple, best client I ever used; #sk1 illustration program from Ukraine for print world; #Freeplan for mindmaps; #Simplenote is markdown and mobile ready;
#linux #floss #OpenSource #design

Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.

BTW, when you “fave” a toot in 🐘, you’re not teaching an algorithm more about yourself, strengthening your signal for targeted advertisements, or increasing your data’s market value. And faved toots aren’t “leaked” to other members’ timelines.

The ⭐ icon functions more like a 👏, 👍, 👌, or 🙌 shared with the toot’s author.
