I can. But I don’t understand why? It’s the page(window) title.

Thank you very much, the post was very clarifying for me, especially about the SPC status. In the law of my country there is no similar legal status, that was confusing me a lot, since the closest thing we have is a CS cooperative society status.

But apparently from what their (ex) clients/users comment and from certain contradictory information, they use the SPC status for the purposes of a Ponzi scheme.

Do you guys think this startup is some kind of unicorn/scam? Until now I have only used its operating system on one of my laptops, which is by far the one that offers the best user experience by default among all the 100% free distros, but the truth is that I have not paid attention to the company’s actions.

In the case of Brave search, he seems to be confused or focused more on the user experience than on whether it is a true ethical alternative to G*. After that I could no longer take his analysis or his arguments seriously.

I sincerely distrust any service that doesn’t provide its source code.

The world of streaming services is one of the most toxic industries there can be. People paying for content they will never own. By the way, the joke of playing war with Russia was very expensive.

Really? Just when a thought that compared to Github and Gitlab it was the best alternative for not being a corporation and being less tied (in legal/political terms) to any kind of US constraints. What where the supposed reasons for the banning?

Discord: Slack for streamers/gamers/*tubers/influencers/etc.

Uncomfortable to use. A VoIP software (private) turned into a forum app? with tons of toxic communities (nested chats) everywhere.

Although lately I don’t get out of bed with a great positive attitude, during the course of the day my mood improves.

Yes. Any software that can’t be audited, is a privacy breach because we can only trust that the seller is telling the truth “the driver just does the thing it was made for and nothing else.” and most of the time we have seen how this trust has been “betrayed” and the program does other things it should not do.

It happen because unlike software (programs) that is governed by the licenses (copyright) the hardware (physical objects) is governed by the patents, and mostly of the time these patents are share among several manufactures, and sometimes they are extremely ridiculous (you can patent practically any idea, no matter how simple and unclear it may be) that whatever product you bring out you have probably violated some of these.
