TIL that Spotify for Linux can be scaled properly on a HiDPI-screen. "Just" add the --force-device-scale-factor=2 command line flag when running it.

Wtf?

I hate writing E-Mails. I always end up editing the shit out of the mail for like an hour until I go full "Whatever!" and just press send.

The development team behind Flatpak has just announced the general availability of the Flatpak desktop application framework. Flatpak (which was also known during development as xdg-app) provides the ability for an application — bundled as a Flatpak — to be... Continue Reading →

Nothing makes me realize how spoiled I am by Linux as when I have to install a Windows machine from scratch.

And after the install is finished, it only gets worse, we're spoiled indeed.

A new VPN protocol and implementation for Linux. Was first announced last year at Kernel Recipes in Paris, and it's great to see it in a "releasable" state at this point in time. I recommend taking a look at it if you like this type of stuff.

Disclosure, I've reviewed various versions of the kernel code, over the past few months, and it seems sane, but note I am not a kernel networking developer :)
WireGuard: fast, modern, secure VPN tunnel

»Flatpak is the new name for GNOME’s XDG-App initiative, though ‘…95% of the commits come from one Red Hat employee,’ Shuttleworth cheekily noted. ‘We would be delighted if they’d work with us.'« – Sorry +Mark Shuttleworth, but this is FUD.
1. flatpack currently has 29 different committers, most of them not Red Hat employees; one is even a Debian developer.
2. +Alexander Larsson has 78% of the commits, not 95%.
3. snappy has 5 only committers, all of them Canonical employees.
4. If you want people to help you with your snaps, don't require them to sign Canonical's CLA, open all snap components (including the server side) and stop spreading FUD in first place.

Kthybye.
Ubuntu’s Snap packages will now work on other Linux distros. Snapd, the tool powering them, has been ported to Arch, Gentoo and Fedora among others.

What do you think about that, Matt? I am not very comfortable with Snaps becoming the standard. I think that splitting the runtime and the applications that use it into two containers is more sensible especially for people with limited bandwidth.

A bit hot and sometimes the food takes a little bit too long to get. But the wait is worth it. The food is fantastic.
