@ubuntustudio, the Linux distribution "for creative humans", will move to KDE's Plasma desktop by default for future releases. Plasma's "better tools for graphics artists and photographers" and lightness make it the ideal desktop for Ubuntu Studio's users.
The KDE community looks forward to working closely with Ubuntu Studio in delivering the best desktop experience to their users.
There is a big problem, a universal biometric ID without a strict legal framework of privacy laws can be a tool of oppression in the hands of a tyrant.

@firstname.lastname@example.org Making it mandatory especially look at the tactical way they are doing it. Its mandatory if you want to go to work! 🙄 One other idea was to make it mandatory if you want to use the public transport.

@AugierLe42e India has lot of migrant labour just like how eastern europe labour work in the west. Until last 2 days these migrants werent allowed to go back home, they didn't have job or any social security net to fall back during the lockdown.
