Ok, don't update Virtualbox with the latest version in their repos (not for Ubuntu anyway) because it's broken and the kernel modules won't build meaning you can't start any VMs

Linux touchpad like a Macbook: progress and a call for help!

Define the goal:

To create a touchpad solution for Linux that serves as many users as possible, we want to be maximally objective in describing what we aim to deliver.

The current preferred plan forward:

1) to fork libinput (overview doc, contributor docs, source), and

2) find up to three developers dedicated to making a measurably better driver.

Really pleased the megacorps are concentrating on gaming now.

All the time they're fucking that up, they're leaving the things I like alone

Daily reminder that the BBC has never been a reliable news source.

They are propaganda for the elite/existing authority and have never and will never deviate from that

The BBC: Myth of a Public Service by Tom Mills is a good read for the entire history of the BBCs bootlicking

Blaming people for sharing their data with Facebook for what Facebook does with their data is victim blaming.

Facebook gets the majority of its data not from our willingly shared posts but by stealing our behavioral data - location, contacts, offline tracking, financial transactions, buying data from partners, data from every other app in your phone using SDKs, tracking on other websites etc.
