South Korea is planning Linux migration as Windows 7 support ends.
The interior ministry will begin test-running Linux on its PCs. if no issues arise, Linux systems will be introduced more widely within the government.
They don't mention any specific distro such as Ubuntu, yet in future "hope to avoid building reliance on a single OS" which the case is now with Win7.
Linux ecosystem is flexible / adaptive.
OK friends of free and open/libre Android apps: My repo now also shows screenshots in the web browser, if there are any (and you use the web frontend). Should affect about any 2nd app. Enjoy!

Wer genug von fadenscheinigen Ausreden hat, der nimmt eine Alternative wie Mastodon.
WhatsApp discovered in early May that attackers were using zero day exploit developed by NSO Group that installed malware on a user's iPhone or Android phone simply by calling them. Target did not have to answer phone to be infected, and calls often disappeared from call logs https://twitter.com/FT/status/1128057920107814914
French open software campaigners @firstname.lastname@example.org have launched a crowdfunding to create an ethical replacement for Facebook Events:
It would be compatible with #Fediverse services like Mastodon which are already used by millions.

I can't click anywhere apart from via "Expand this status" in the three-dotted-menu to open this toot which consists just of a single picture: https://mastodon.social/@dosnostalgic/102053104434629708
So is this a problem of my browser or a #Mastodon #bug or feature?
Hey @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org Why are you telling people it's already been fixed on your Spanish tweets? It has not. Are you lying? Did they get a 'fix' the rest of us didn't? Still no add-ons here. "ya esta solucionado" = "already solved"

Uh huh... an update? Please @email@example.com enlighten me. How does a browser update fix an expired security certificate?

Just started up a #Firefox which yesterday had automatically re-enabled all my installed addons & has now *disabled* them all again! 😡 That's it, it's good bye now to @mozilla @firefox. It has been my primary browser since one of it's very first releases despite having to work around so many awful changes it went through over the years. Big thanks to Mozilla anyway, since it saved me from having to use even worse browsers & now enables me to choose a fork.
I'm interested in all kinds of motorsport and IT. I'm no coder but contribute to several open source projects & collect data for OpenStreetMap.
