@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.

ubuntustudio.org/2020/04/ubunt

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.

Congress failed to address this, their biggest SIN! twitter.com/rohanrgupta/status

The apps that we call "contact tracing" apps don't do contact tracing - they do "exposure notification." Exposure notification is a useful adjunct to the labor-intensive work of contact tracing, but it is no substitute for it.

We have no money to send migrants home for free on a fancily named train. We have the money to waste on this petal sprinkling farce today by the airforce which helps nobody.

Until 1945 when Germany was completely destroyed, Germans believed that Hitler's decisions are because of his patriotism for Germany

Sad that history repeats but in a different country

Dear advocates around the world, please oppose the pushing a surveillance app 👎 Aarogya Sethu using the pandemic as an excuse. The worst thing is that they are making it compulsory if you want to move out or start working!

Not to mention the app violates every single tenet of patient confidentiality. This is a medical horror before it is a a mass surveillance system

The Arogya Setu app, is a sophisticated surveillance system, outsourced to a pvt operator, with no institutional oversight - raising serious data security & privacy concerns. Technology can help keep us safe; but fear must not be leveraged to track citizens without their consent.

Is this correct? Not using the govt sponsored malware will invite criminal proceedings?

Govt can afford the personnel and money to chase down people who don't install apps on their phone?

Buggers are brain dead. No game plan beyond fascism.

Anyone installing spyware on their phone because govt says so, probably leaves their laptops and phones without passwords, because parents or bosses say so.

After all, if some benevolent authority tells you to be vulnerable to malicious elements, it is a good thing, right?

Govt is strong-arming Indians into using the #AarogyaSetu tracking app, that gives itself permission to use data as it likes. How can it be make mandatory for work, mobility, transport, without privacy/timeline guarantees? Is it being challenged in court? huffingtonpost.in/entry/aarogy
