Yeah I definitely get that. What I wanted to say was just something along the lines of, “statehood equals terror”, so by all means…


While I don’t disagree, all states pretty much engage in terror.



CaspianReports is not as good as it used to be, I think. I stopped watching it a long time ago.







And then when Lemmy adopts the AT protocol it will become the world’s biggest social site










Unfortunately I cannot answer your question about driver support. There are lots of Chromebooks and I haven’t tried installing Linux on any of them, but I’ve heard from people that they’ve successfully done this and are happy with the result.

My point of view is that if you are going to buy a Chromebook, then you must want ChromeOS and what it offers. Otherwise you’d just buy a regular notebook, new or used. A lot of computers now even come with Linux pre-installed.

A Chromebook is a good utility device. You don’t have to tinker with it. It makes sense as a gaming system too. People who aren’t tech-savvy can just pick one up and start using it, install Steam, and carry on. The OS is light and maintained for you, so don’t have to worry about maintenance.

I guess for Steam you had better get a Deck instead, but I guess a Chromebook then doubles as a device for school/office, general computing, and even development. It also runs Android apps, and so on. I have to say, the thing I like least about mine is the nonstandard keyboard. It makes using key combinations like alt+shift+up/down impossible because the OS in my case maps alt+up and alt+down as pageup and pagedown.



Given that it’s all open source, there will always be a way to get all of this working, but maybe one potential or temporary low-tech solution is to offer accounts on the XMPP server for Lemmy users individually per request, meaning not everyone gets one automatically, but anyone can ask for one. It would however, be nice to have it all linked together and be automatic.

Maye one day Lemmy could even have a chat feature in the browser which just uses the XMPP backend. Anyway, I think it would be great to have an XMPP account on slrpnk.net. Maybe e-mail too?



I vote for XMPP. I would join the chat room(s) if available. The domain is awesome.

Regarding integration, I know from experience that Lemmy supports xmpp: URI’s. I would also suggest making changes to the source to allow users to add their JID to their profile if they can’t already. (Maybe you can by using markdown in your profile?) You can probably replace the Matrix field with an XMPP one with a simple edit.
