Debian Buster Release Party sabato 2019-07-06


Sabato 6 luglio è previsto il rilascio di #Debian Buster, e come ormai da tradizione, il LIFO, nella sua incarnazione di Debian Local Group, organizza un party per celebrare.

Il programma prevede un pomeriggio con computer e merenda presso il FaberlLab a Tradate, indicativamente tra le 15:30 e le 18:30 e una cena a Varese presso Hambù in via Vetera alle 19:30.

La partecipazione al pomeriggio è libera, per la cena è necessario
aggiungersi al framasondaggio entro sabato 29 giugno per permettere la prenotazione (aggiungere una riga per partecipante, anche per eventuali +1)

Il ristorante per la cena è un hamburgeria, ma hanno anche hamburger vegetariani e pinsa romana ed altri piatti per chi non volesse mangiare hamburger.

Attenzione: in caso di problemi con le sedi e/o aggiustamenti dell'orario verrà aggiornata la pagina del party sulla wiki debian: controllate qualche giorno prima per avere certezza di avere le informazioni aggiornate.
 

The poddery story

poddery.com ( #poddery stands for Pod Dery ) was started around 2010 (domain name was registered on 2010 December 07) by Joe Bivins. To place this in history of #diaspora,
1. The famous lecture "Freedom in The could" by Eben Moglen, was delivered on 2010 Feb 05.
1. This speech inspired 4 students of New York University’s Courant Institute (Illia Zhitomirskiy, Daniel Greppi, and Raphael Sofaer) to launch a crowd funding campaign to replace #facebook on 2010 April 24.
1. The first developer preview was released on 2010 September 15 and first consumer alpha version was released on 2010 November 23. The first tag on the github repo dates 2010 December 2.

As you can see from these dates, poddery.com is one of the earliest diaspora pods. Possibly, third pod after joindiaspora.com and diasp.org (if you know another pod started before poddery.com, let me know in comments). When we organized our second Mini #Debian Conference in Pune in 2011, we opened an account in poddery.com () and its first post was on 2011 June 23.

We posted many photos of the events on this account and when we heard Joe Bivins was planning to close this pod on 2013 June 30, we did not want to lose these posts. We offered to take over the maintenance and launched Save Poddery Campaign in June 2013. We got around 50% of the target amount and with around 66% discount by KnightSwarm, we took over maintenance of poddery.com. We are running this service for about 6 years now. In between we added #xmpp service and last year #matrix.

You can follow the history of this service via and @poddery.com updates accounts.

We are running our 3rd crowd funding campaign now. Thanks to everyone who contributed, money as well as time and effort to run the service.

Distro personal crisys (an open letter to myself... )

tl;dr I think this is something that happens from time to time but I think I need to change distro for a while. And I just realized this long post is for me, because I have to deal with my ideals and I am not really happy to do that, but I am not having fun with Debian recently and I need to solve it.


After ten years of #Debian I see Debian changing in something that I don't recognize or I don't feel comfortable with it. Many years ago Debian was also synonymous of innovations, on every fields, today what happens in Debian is, along to slow, behind the scene, like the Risc-V port but for the Desktop area there is nothing exciting and since the #systemd debate I had the feelings that Debian simply refused to lead in favor on just following the events. I mean I am really prone to think if tomorrow Ubuntu is shipped with Just snaps that Debian will follow the same, honestly DEB/DPKG/APT are just old as sysvinit and if you changed the latter there is no reason why you can't change even the former.

Today there are a tons of very good Desktop oriented distros, it is just me and Debian that we are stick like ten years ago. Today we have community project like #ElementaryOS, #ZorynOS or #LinuxMint, and sponsored distros like the same #Ubuntu, #PureOS and #Pop OS!. Without forgetting #ArchLinux, #Fedora and #Opensuse #Leap and #Tumbleweed. I probably will not choice the last three big; and among the ones I quoted early only PureOS is a Debian (testing) based distro, and the #Purism is also the only company that gives back to Debian, which makes PureOS a really strong candidate however because my laptop is a System76 one probably I will end to install Pop_OS!

When I bought my laptop the first thing I did was to erase any trace of *buntu... I really can't handle Canonical, it is from when Ubuntu just meant "I am unable to install Debian", I really don't like the behavior of Canonical in every sense, this is why I would not ever use a distro based on Ubuntu.

What, from my point of view, makes Debian superior respect the other distro available is because the DSFG, because it can't be only about technology! Technology without ethic is dangerous for all us and produce pollution, weapons, etc... Technology with an ethical approach produces wellness for everyone and produces also free software and distros like Debian.

This is why I am really reluctant to leave Debian even if for a while; and #GuixSD is not ready yet for a desktop use, and probably it is not even desktop oriented. But in Debian there is not space if you aren't a devs and the Debian users aren't really prone to accept changes and every debate in Debian fall down because Debian must be Debian as is known while you can change constantly if you respect your ideals.

The informatics is my entertainment and today I am not really happy with Debian, hence I am looking around. I am watching Pop_OS! closely.It is based on two of the pieces of software that I like the lesser, Ubuntu and #Gnome3, however it is modern and it works as a modern distro should do. For example it was able to install the "virtual box guest additions" out of the box, it recognized the executable file inside the "virtual cd" automatically. That was pretty impressive, at least for me. With Pop_os!/Ubuntu I can install all the QT applications as snap by default and keep my system clean while I have the snap software always updated.

Those are cool things, that aren't important in order to make your computer or OS usable, so I don't pretend that Debian must follow the same path, but, as a matter of fact today Debian is not following any path if not just collecting upstream software to produce a stable distro (IMHO). I am confident that in the future Debian will shine again, probably the competition with GuixSD will trigger this change, but in the meantime I will install Pop_Os!

[ANN]Arronax v0.7.0


I just released a new version of Arronax.

Arronax is a program that allows you to create and edit starters for programs and locations (*.desktop files) under Linux. Besides a standalone program there are optional plugins for the file managers Caja, Nautilus and Nemo.

Arronax is written in Python and uses GTK for the graphical user interface.

The pointlessness of the FSF endorsed distros based on Ubuntu...

A pure Free-Software distro is a very hard ambition as well as an hard goal to accomplish, you have to deal with your hardware and if your hardware is not compliance with the free Software it is almost impossible running a pure libre distro. But back to time when even installing a standard distro was an impossible task, Ubuntu came out helping a lot of people making easier installing linux on whatever hardware. However we have to flip the point of observation, at the beginning there were just free drivers mostly made through reverse engineering, most of them were too buggy or unreliables, and the few closed drivers were hard to obtain or unavailable to the end users. Hence running a linux distro and having a laptop or a PC with 100% hardware recognized was very hard to achieve but not for Ubuntu. Ubuntu made easy installing blob binaries on Linux and making your hardware properly working, cool! All of we are in debt with Canonical for this because Ubuntu broken this barrier and helped all the distro to achieve the same, pointing the direction to follow. The main point is Ubuntu used closed software to achieve its goal, it pursued a pragmatic approach instead of an ethical one and it was right.

Ubuntu also decided to focus on a smaller set of packages respect to Debian, from which it derivates, and it takes care only the packages available on the "main" repo while all the others are in the "universe" repo and are handled by the community. However to release Ubuntu the packages in "universe" don't need to be bugs free like the ones in Debian. As a matter of fact Debian is released when all the critical bugs are closed, then basically all the packages in Debian stable are working while, even in a Ubuntu LTS, the packages that are in the universe repo can still be buggy.

An Ubuntu LTS can have software more updated than a Debian Stable but the latter is 100% reliable and secure. Ubuntu takes care only of the packages that are strategic for the Canonical's business and has several partnerships with hardware and softwares vendors to provide binaries blobs and closed software on his platform in the name of the pragmatism and customers satisfaction. Fine, but now is clear that Ubuntu is not the best choice for a pure linux distro, when you take out from Ubuntu the closed softwares you lost all the points that make Ubuntu a pragmatic distro and eventually you have just a distro with an unusual repositories organization and with most of those packages available quite buggy.

Even FSF noticed that and as a matter of fact they switched from Ubuntu to Debian for their gNewSense distro. It is important to remember that Debian was financed, long time ago, by the FSF itself because it actually promotes free software by default but it is not restrictive like the FSF does and that caused a separation that still continues.

My suggestion is, if you like to have a FSF endorsed distro based on deb you had better to avoid any Ubuntu derivates and move on the ones based on Debian like the already mentioned gNewSense or PureOS and don't forget that Debian is 100% free software by default.
