Yes, it's ok that #NVIDIA #opensource.d the #Linux Kernel Module for their GFX cards now. It's a start. People backslapping Nvidia now, arguing "see how good they are!!": Wat?! W/o constant pressure of the Linux community since decades, nothing would've be done. Still no MESA, no CUDA.
As a user, nothing changes for you:
You still need that not open sourced MESA alternative by Nvidia to get a picture on your monitor.
That means also: Fresh install images of Linux distros cannot ship a working Nvidia open source stack - still driving countless users to the stupid "Linux doesn't work on the desktop!!" claim. Because from their view, that's how it is. First hand!!
The only ones who really profit from this are the #nouveau driver developers. The real open source heros, bringing Nvidia chips to live with almost no documentation - since years!
They finally have something solid to work with now. Those devs are the ones who deserve our support - more than ever.
EU: All messenger services should be required to interoperate.
Also EU: We will fund opensource software, like e.g. messenger clients.
Also EU: All messengers are now required to scan messages for unwanted content locally, before encryption, and notify the gooberment of such communicaton.
Do they even realize that they literally have to make FOSS illegal if they want people to not be able to choose clients that don't spy on them (regardless of message transport)? The answer, of course, is no.

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?
Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩
I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

1/ Die Bundesnetzagentur verbietet Telekom StreamOn und Vodafone Pass und stärkt damit die Netzneutralität. Warum ist das wichtig? Die Anbieter konnten entscheiden, welche Dienste „neben“ dem normalen Datenvolumen laufen (Zero-Rating). Eine freie Wahl durch User wurde erschwert. Ähnlich wie bei Telefongesprächen echte Flatrates mittlerweile Standard sind, muss es das auch bei Datenvolumina möglich sein.
So you just arrived here from twitter and it's quiet. Real quiet. That's because there's no algorithm here designed to drive engagement(which equals profit).
Here, you are the algorithm. It's up to you to find and follow people that are interesting to you. You can also see who they follow and who else follows them, as you build it up, it gets more interesting.
Also, if you find people you don't like or entire instances you don't like, you can mute or block them. You are in control.
