Cinnamon is now part of official openSUSE Tumbleweed repositories, by the way.

I fixed Cinnamon up in #openSUSE. Now it is time to think about pushing it to official repository.
@Stanislav N., было… всё плохо.
По оценке товарища @Ronis_BR – garbage.

So many years passed, Compiz 0.9.x ( still has quirks Compiz 0.8.x didn't.
But on the same time, Compiz 0.8.x is slow which makes it a bad choice.
Don't see a difference between Compiz 0.9 in Ubuntu and other distributions.
Of course, if a version is the same.
@Stanislav N., I've packaged Compiz 0.9 for #openSUSE myself :-).
Don't see a difference in performance between Ubuntu's build and my own.

If the Devil exists, he's apparently in the cloud.

#MATE 1.10.1 was finally submitted into X11:MATE:Current project in #openSUSE for 13.1, 13.2 and Tumbleweed.

Hmm, I didn't know #ElectricLightOrchestra had this one last album called Zoom in 2001.

I am testing latest freshplayerplugin release (0.2.2) for a few days now (now hard testing, just regular stuff).
What can I say… at last, it works just as good as I need it to :-).
Which means we don't need Adobe blessing for using latest Flash Player on Mozilla Firefox on GNU/Linux anymore. Still proprietary stuff, of course, though.
@Kyle, Adobe is planning to drop GNU/Linux version support very soon…

I am now using biboumi for connecting to IRC.
ejabberd's mod_irc is not very acceptable anymore as it doesn't indicate who comes to channel.

Russian economy rapidly goes to success: euro now counts for 100 rubles.

I am surprised by astonishing ability of some people to choose "lesser evil" instead of seeking a true alternative.
While writing this I was thinking about Bing useds who fight evil Google.

Sorry that I don't write anything here, I just can't make myself realize I can express my thoughts and share information here even though I am commenting other posts.
@Roland Haeder, :-), and sometimes on a language I don't understand ;-).
I think my problem is that I have other channel for expressing what I think: XMPP.
@Roland Haeder, I know easy-to-use one: Conversations.
It is not free (in a cost matter) in Google Play but available in F-Droid. So if your girlfriend is a Google-slave she wouldn't want to use Conversations.

There are also almost FOSS clients: Sawim and jTalk which probably violate GPL (they itself are licensed in GPLv3 but use non-free libraries) and don't have end-to-end encryption.
Also worth mentioning: Xabber and ChatSecure.

In Apple's Russia watch watches you!

I am glad #openSUSE made Factory a usable rolling release.
It gives openSUSE two strong points in my opinion: Open Build Service and rolling release.
Only for OBS I am using openSUSE even though it is not Debian :-D.

@Gleb Derevleov, it is an implementation of Wayland.
@Stanislav N., almost possible to use.

One more thing: laptop with WinPE and Victoria isn't mine (and HDD isn't really alive :-/) and both PC under the table are shut down.
@Gleb Derevleov, :-D.

Federation, Decentralization, and Cross-Posting
As I participate on various free/open source social platforms, I find that there is some confusion over the meaning of several important terms, which I'd like to clear up:

Decentralization is the phenomenon of having multiple hubs (sites, nodes, pods) on a network that communicate with each other. Diaspora, Libertree, StatusNet, Pumpio, Friendica and RedMatrix are all decentralized, in that there is not a single hub, but rather multiple hub/sites, run by various owners/providers that can all communicate with each other, but all using the same platform and protocols. This is unlike, for instance, commercial platforms, like twitt

I guess one problem with large nations (both geographically and by population) is that it's harder to protest policies.

Look at Ukraine: people from all parts of the nation were able to go to the capital city of Kiev/Kyiv and take part in a single large protest movement (which, BTW, is not just about joining the EU any more).

The same can't be done as easily in large nations: I don't think protesters from, say, Los Angeles, have the same capability to join their compatriots from New York or Washington, DC. Instead, we get a lot of smaller protests, which are easier to disrupt or ignore.

That's why, for example, the progressive protest rallies in Default City were so easy to ignore or write off as "a bunch of pesky urban hipsters".
