I've been interested in writing a Ren'Py game for some time, and wanted to work on something goofy that could make people laugh.

RMS Dating Simulator (Github)

This is a fun way to motivate myself to do something with the engine, and I get to write an interactive story and make the art for it, too. I honestly think this could be a really fun collaborative project - it'd be fun to brainstorm with people about ways to make the story better, or funny things that could happen here.

A visual novel involving Richard Stallman (also known as RMS) of the Free Software Foundation as well as the GNU project. This is inspired by numerous dating simulator games found in the Newgrounds.com community


Licensed under the GPLv3, with CC-BY-SA 4.0 for any content that comes from it. Currently, there are no art assets developed yet, and the interaction is little more than a few conversation loops. However, I hope to take this much farther, and seek to tell a real story of some kind with it.

I wonder if you can pretty much reconstruct most of #Unity in Gnome Shell these days? It would be interesting to see the core functionality fully translate over to the native #Gnome environment.

So far, the dock and indicators are supported, and can work in a Unity fashion. I guess at this point, you'd just need a Global Menu and a way for notification bubbles to be rendered in a corner? I'm curious how the new Ubuntu release will take shape, given their recent work on the dock plugin.

What would miss me the most is the dash and the hud.

Get it while it's hot - my #Librem review is here:

The Price of Freedom — A Review of the Librem 15 v3

Purism is a wild startup located in South San Francisco. Their mission? Providing a superior hardware experience for people who love privacy and software freedom. Purism is building and shipping GNU/Linux laptops, and is interested in developing a phone as well.

Nice article, thank you. Still no info about battery time though...

@dsh lol I just found this

This looks good. I currently run Debian stable on my desktop. I use XFCE over Gnome. If I could do that with PureOS, then I think this is what I want, next time I get a laptop.

I've dressed up my #PureOS installation. It's been a while since I've had a Linux-based environment dedicated to daily computing, but overall I'm excited about it.

I think I'm going to stick with #Gnome for a little while. I love #KDE, but the toolkit clash between different applications really hinders the experience. It's easier to make Qt just mimic GTK+ on a Gnome desktop.

This distribution ships with Gnome 3.22, running on top of Wayland. What's surprising is that most of the Wayland experience is completely invisible to the end user. It could run ever so slightly smootherFor an open source video driver, it doesn't run too poorly. A very basic demo of glxgears runs at 75 FPS - though not a definitive benchmark, it generally feels good.

Media and important files have all been transferred over, a development environment has been configured, tools have been set up, and a few choice themes / extensions have been assembled.

I haven't heard of PureOS, but the search led me to https://puri.sm/. Looks pretty cool. Does anyone have experience with these laptops?

The Librem are the first high-end laptops where you are in control and have complete visibility into the operating system, all bundled software, and the deeper levels of your computer. Typical laptops use hardware chips coupled with software that can betray you (including tracking you without your consent). News stories have shown how these chips c...

So excited for my #LibreM 15 v3 - ready for Coreboot and using #Linux full-time again.

Awesome! Don't forget to write a review when you get it! I'm looking around for a replacement for my Googe-freed Cromebook running on Coreboot.

For the 10th anniversary since the legendary OpenMoko announcement at the „Open Source in Mobile“ (7th of November 2006 in Amsterdam), I’ve been meaning to write an anthology or – as Paul Fertser suggested on #openmoko-cdevel – an obituary.
