Not anymore according to Wikipedia:

SteamOS, version 3.0. This new version is based upon Arch Linux with the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment

xylogx OP ,

Good question! After installing Emulators on my Steamdeck I realized it could run as a desktop. Also, I learned it was a rolling release. This seemed attractive to me, so I wanted to hear how mainstream this could be.

Sounds like the answer is not very. Some other good suggestions in this thread I might try, though.

xylogx OP ,

Thanks! I was playing hide and seek with this little fella for a while and I thought I had lost him when he suddenly hopped up on this bush and I snapped a few quick shots.

I knew the story of John Lasseter, but I never knew Ed Catmull’s role in Pixar. He was the tech guy who turned into the pragmatic leader.

Lots of good info on the early days of tech, interactions with Steve Jobs and really insightful advice on how to nurture creativity.

“ …ways you can organize a business that makes literally impossible to legally do these things. ”

Not disputing this is true, but could you provide some examples?

An exploding population of hard-to-eradicate “super pigs” in Canada is threatening to spill south of the border, and northern states like Minnesota, North Dakota and Montana are taking steps to stop the invasion....

Investing in one company is not a bet against another company.

So you are saying it is only mildly interesting?

I would focus on getting top posters from Reddit to move over or at least cross post.

Baltimore to pay $48 million to 3 men wrongly imprisoned for 36 years (www.washingtonpost.com)

Three men who spent 36 years in prison for a murder they did not commit — they were wrongly arrested as teenagers by Baltimore police and wrongly convicted by a jury — will receive $48 million from the city after a vote Wednesday by the Baltimore City Board of Estimates....

So the tax payers have to pay for this miscarriage of justice and no police or prosecutors are held accountable? Why are they not facing a life sentence?

xylogx ,

The fact that the burden on tax payers is lower, does not change the fact that there is zero accountability here.

Their ads are natively served so ad blockers already are pretty useless for them already.

Who are some people to follow on Bookwyrm?

When my kids were younger I monitored their usage and restricted their access. As they earned trust this eased up. Now that they are teens they are mostly free to do what they want. I will still ask what they use their phones for and we have frank conversations about it, but I will not invade their privacy unless there is a good reason.

This look to me like an advocacy group successfully advocating for common sense legislation:

“Advocates for menstrual equity who oppose a tax on menstrual products say the taboo around menstruation and the lack of access to menstrual products hurts women economically because it costs them money for products and may keep them from attending jobs and school. Poor menstrual hygiene poses health risks for women, including reproductive issues and urinary tract infections.”

If you were asked to think of something you never thought of before, what would be the most reliable way to do it?

When I read about how most of our thoughts are repetitive, I wondered if it would be possible for us to have a thought that is completely new or original by will. Is there some way we can have unique thoughts whenever we wish to?...

This is like coming up with an original name for a D&D character: you just put together sounds until you get something that sounds cool. Here is one:

Bryo-Kernatz

Once you have the name it helps you imagine the character it might belong too.

He was recently interviewed by Steven Dubner on Freakanomics. He said he was offered the choice of China or Japan and that he chose Japan.

Were these cops named Fred, Velma and Daphne, cause this headline sounds like it came right out of a Scooby-Doo episode.

What exactly was the breach? There is no detail about what data was accessed or who accessed it in the entire article.

This is the only comment in this entire post that makes any sense. Thank you.

The article refers to Vivaldi’s response as scathing, but I think it is fair and even and the best overall summary I have seen -> vivaldi.com/…/googles-new-dangerous-web-environme…

In order to win a libel suit it is my understanding they must prove the claims to be false. So if this goes to court they could end up proving in court that it is a matter of fact provable that Twitter has become more toxic since Musk took over. And then they would win. That would be brilliant.
