Life’s always been better without Windows.

I’m scared. I dual-boot windows just for some very specific school assignments. I don’t want it to do any updating, just stay on windows 10 and leave me alone. God I want to purge this shit from my laptop. (only reason that it is not a vm is for performance)

Well, hopefully school assignments will be long done by the time anyone has to worry about Lose11.

Dear god I wish I could get off windows. The last thing keeping me is photo editing. I tried gimp but it just does not compete (speaking of witch, open source Flickr/500px clone when?). I am looking for anything, even closed source, that works on Linux and can rival Photoshop/affinity photo.

edit: I get people like me are frustrating, it’s always the next thing, but I truly think I can reluctantly deal with inkscape and make the switch if I find something

Flickr/500px clone when?

Pixelfed?

Yes, but its not “professional” oriented, although the quality tends to be higher than instagram. Px/Flickr offer portfolios, show metadata like focal length, camera, and lens, and let photographers sell their work. Maybe it gets a pro mode for instances in the future

Maybe check out Krita.

Although what’s wrong with GIMP? It might not be pretty, but I thought it was pretty feature-full.

Nothing wrong with GIMP by itself, but when compared to Photoshop, it is not really the same. Photoshop’s tools have a “works like magic” feel to them, its hard to describe. Gimp in comparison does feel a bit rough. Also it has a few missing features for the really advanced users.

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
