Hey, #Fediverse, do you use (say, at least once per week) any Mozilla products?

Context: some people are claiming "nobody uses Mozilla's products anymore". I'd like to see if that's actually true.

I'd rather Jeff Bezos spend his money on rockets that carry people than the U.S. government spend his money on rockets that carry bombs.

Linux help:

I have a laptop with Ubuntu 21.04 and working WiFi. But I want to give it to my mother, and just switch out the SSD from her old laptop to this "new" one, so she won't have to get used to anything new.

But her SSD is running Zorin OS, and when I put that one into the "new" laptop the WiFi is not working…

So: Is there some wireless driver files on Ubuntu that I can copy over to the Zorin SSD to get WiFi to work? How do I find them?

Thanks a ton!

Looking for an artist to design a logo

For some time I have been working on programming language, KAP, which is a derivative of APL. The implementation is open source, as all languages should be.

The project itself does not have a logo, and all programming languages should have a logo.

Now, I have exactly zero artistic skills, and I know there are artists here that could help me out.

I will of course pay for the effort, since I do not expect anyone to create a logo for a project they do not use for free. If you have an idea, then let me know about it and how much you want for the effort and I'm sure we can come to an agreement.

Just look at the project page and you'll see just how empty it seems without a logo:

Donald Rumsfeld died, so let me say rest in peace to all those who are dead because he was allowed anywhere near political power.

So, if you're an institution of that partnered with because it's a non-profit rather than someone like looks like the joke's on you.


I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has moved their enterprise CentOS 7 or 8 deployments to CentOS Stream.

It's nice the move is as simple as just two dnf commands, but what has your experience been running and maintaining it? Any concerns regarding stability, update rate, etc.?

I have a fleet of ~400 machines and I'm still a little torn between Stream and jumping ship to Alma or Rocky.

Boosts appreciated, thanks!
