    [–] PinePhone Pro Announced resoluti0n_ 29 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in linux

    Nice.

    I will buy it in a heartbeat the minute I can confirm two things:

    • I can run most android apps on it (emulation or otherwise).

    • There is nothing seriously wrong with the hardware overall (battery, screen, cameras...).

    I would really like to see a high end laptop from them too by the way.

    [–] Mozilla to put ads in Firefox address bar suggestions resoluti0n_ 140 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago) in linux

    Unfortunately for some users, Canonical is switching the default Firefox to the snap package published directly by Mozilla in the next Ubuntu release. The flatpak package that is becoming more popular is also published by Mozilla. So those two options should have this feature by default.

    [–] Mozilla to put ads in Firefox address bar suggestions resoluti0n_ 206 points ago in linux

    At this point, I would really like to see a new community maintained Firefox fork with all the nonsense features disabled by default.

    [–] Mozilla to put ads in Firefox address bar suggestions resoluti0n_ 113 points ago in linux

    What’s on by default

    Firefox has always provided address bar suggestions, such as websites from your browsing history, bookmarks and open tabs (on by default), as well as suggestions from your default search engine. Beginning in Firefox version 92, you will also receive new, relevant suggestions from our trusted partners based on what you’re searching for.

    [–] Ubuntu to Make Firefox Snap Package Default in 21.10 resoluti0n_ 1 points ago in linux

    It's much better and cheaper for Canonical to have automated builds publishing the browser into the distro than it is to have someone manually do it for every supported version of Ubuntu.

    I won't argue with that point but why not simply use the flatpak published by Mozilla? They would have most of the same benefits and as previously mentioned, flatpak is much more focused on desktop apps and the GNOME environment.

    [–] Ubuntu to Make Firefox Snap Package Default in 21.10 resoluti0n_ 3 points ago in linux

    Snaps are not aligned with freedesktop.org needs, it's aligned with server application packaging, configuration and deployment needs.

    So why Canonical is trying to push a snap package for a major desktop app like Firefox when their package technology is much more aligned with server applications?

    [–] Ubuntu to Make Firefox Snap Package Default in 21.10 resoluti0n_ 57 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in linux

    There is also a flatpak package published by Mozilla that is available. My impression was that flatpak was much more popular than snap among most Linux users. I guess a good part of the reason why this is happening is that Canonical want to push his own package technology by making it default.

    [–] Steamdeck will be running Linux. SteamOS 3.0 is Arch-based and runs KDE resoluti0n_ 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in linux

    but then again it is not competition for Steam Deck, because you cannot play those games on the Deck anyway.

    FWIW I'm pretty sure the Steam Deck will be able to run BOTW or Super Mario at launch. SteamOS is Linux and there is already YUZU that can emulate both those games on Linux.

    [–] The PineTime Open Source Smartwatch Goes on Sale for $27 resoluti0n_ 9 points ago in linux

    True but I guess they prefer shipping with a tracking option even if the price of the item is very low.

    [–] The PineTime Open Source Smartwatch Goes on Sale for $27 resoluti0n_ 36 points ago in linux

    Well, $60 is not crazily expensive for a budget open source smartwatch...unless your local currency is weak against the USD or the product itself is fundamentally flawed (which I do not think is the case here).
