Seriously, @mozilla ?
Not only you went and implemented this DRM crap and now you're downloading non-free binaries behind our back???

Hot take: Firefox may be open source but it's not free software any more than Google Chrome.

@jorin
* new kind of browsers needed *
time to replace js with lua
@mmu_man @mozilla

@hansbauer @jorin @mozilla I wonder if NetSurf would accept support for <script type="text/lua"> :D

@mmu_man @hansbauer @jorin @mozilla
tbh with JS to Lua transpilers kinda already existing, LuaJIT might be good enough for everyday browsing

but what if, What If!!! we just... don't put scripting into browsers.... and build better OSs instead

kinda what @Shamar is doing

@mmu_man @hansbauer @jorin @mozilla @Shamar

like, getting a new, majorly backwards incompatible technology accepted is always a big hurdle so why not fix the issue at the right level of abstraction and yeet the browser stack out the window together with bad kernels and userspaces?

@grainloom
if we always think about backward compatibility, we will be made eternal. slaves of the tech giants. better do something new and better.

An operating system don't need to be complex and large.

#Jehanne strives for #simplicity and it's small: jehanne.io

It's also a distributed #OS that derive from #Plan9 but diverges on important aspects: it's more radical and... more broken 😇

#9front is a serious distributed OS that is still small: it follows the "Worse is Better" design style, while Jehanne's style can be summarized a Simplex Sigillum Veri.

@Shamar @hansbauer @grainloom @jorin @mozilla Haiku is a little larger but still not as huge as GNU/Linux :p

Suivre

@Shamar @hansbauer @grainloom Haiku at least is usable, unlike GNU/HURD :D

@mmu_man @hansbauer @grainloom

I used #Debian GNU/HURD for a month a couple of decades ago... it was... funny! 😉

But don't mock it too much...
there are interesting ideas there...
Maybe one day it could surprise us!

Anyway, the value of a #hack is not in its usability but in what you can learn from it.

The best hacks are failures.
