Me either. But I had already seen it posted on irc.

It is a post on twitter from pid_eins

Check out logs for #devuan on our libera irc channel for discussion of the history.

Re: April fools in August

'Software freedom your way' by the Devuan community is a very good book. There are very few other distros which have published the philosophical reasons for the existence of the distro. And yet, books of that nature can be very important for helping users to form deeper connections with the goals of the project. For instance, I became much more insistent on using libre software after reading 'Free Software, Free Society' by Richard Stallman, and reading the Stallman biography called 'Free as in Freedom'.

There's a PDF version linked in the post that golinux posted where you can read the entire 'Software freedom your way' book yourself: https://bxl.dyne.org/media/actions/3-so … ur-way.pdf
Devuan users should read the entire book if possible.


I visit the Dev1Galaxy using 3 different browsers: 1) links2 in a terminal; 2) self-compiled Pale Moon; 3) Mull from the F-Droid store. If you want Pale Moon with no dbus dependency or with sndio support, I can help.

What economists call over-production is but a production that is above the purchasing power of the worker, who is reduced to poverty by capital and state.

@aitor . . . it appears so. "hellekin (how)" is a sig he uses. In fact, on the "Team" page of the website his description is:

Hellekin O’Wolf :: editor, webmaster and book sprinter

I have lost track of what he is working on.
