    1. Systemd problems might not have mattered that much, except that GNOME has a similar attitude; they only care for a small subset of the Linux desktop users, and they have historically abandoned some ways of interacting the Desktop in the interest of supporting touchscreen devices and to try to attract less technically sophisticated users. If you don't fall in the demographic of what GNOME supports, you're sadly out of luck.
    1. The benefits for developers do reflect on benefits for users, with more software delivered faster and more securely.
    2. What’s the use of ie. snap libreoffice if it can’t access documents on a samba server in my workplace ? Should I really re-organize years of storage and work in my office for being able to use snap ? A too high price to pay, for the moment.
    3. I - we all - totally agree about the benefits of snap for developers. But the loss of comfort and flexibility for end user is eventually a no-go option.
    4. I clearly understand why snap is a safety progress on server and IoT but in my « human » usage snap is just restricting how I use my data and computer.

    1. Svelte will not offer a generic way to support style customizing via contextual class overrides (as we'd do it in plain HTML). Instead we'll invent something new that is entirely different. If a child component is provided and does not anticipate some contextual usage scenario (style wise) you'd need to copy it or hack around that via :global hacks.

    1. This is it. I'm done with Page Translator, but you don't have to be. Fork the repo. Distribute the code yourself. This is now a cat-and-mouse game with Mozilla. Users will have to jump from one extension to another until language translation is a standard feature or the extension policy changes.
    2. Mozilla will never publicly ask users to circumvent their own blocklist. But it's their actions that are forcing people to do so.
    3. So to me, it seems like they want to keep their users safer by... making them use Google Chrome or... exposing themselves to even greater danger by disabling the whole blocklist.

    1. But what seems like the perfect solution, fining the parents for their bully-child, may actually make the problem worse.

      This potential solution may just backfires. In most cases, the bullied are silent about the incidents and parents of bullies may not care enough. In fact, they may bully their own child more for getting a fine. There are many potential negative effects like retaliation from the bullies and the continuing cycle of bullying.

    1. That slumberd, wakes the bitter memorie Of what he was, what is, and what must be [ 25 ]

      This rouses the memory of what he was and the thought of what he is and how he must become worse. one of the most powerful features of Paradise lost is the presentment of the gradual debasement and decline of Satan as the evil he works against man masters himself.

    1. In my professional career I’ve noticed that doing “The Right Thing” is not always the best path. That phenomenon is called The Rise of “Worse is Better” and it can be observed in many things including C, Unix, Windows, JavaScript… Seems like New Jersey approach wins out more than it looses in a real world. (Be a virus, spread and than the pressure will rise to better the game).
