The DL Triforce brings to your our Must Have Linux Apps, the applications and software we can’t live without. We discuss the latest big GNOME release with GNOME 3.38. In the Gaming section this week we reveal our new DLN Xonotic Server and show you a way to get some table-top gaming back in action on Linux. Later in the show we’ll give you our popular tips/tricks and software picks. Plus so much more, coming up right now on Destination Linux.

    Great show! I’ve always been interested in a better definition of /opt

    On the future of tracking i’d recommend watching Google’s The Selfish Ledger.

    By getting to know family heritage and friends it’s plausible to build habit models even on someone who’s never touched a computer. Even if we assume perfect data hygene (which… goodluck) data mining communication platforms are also so proliferated it’s near impossible to communicate without a lot of conversations becoming permanent Google storage (ex: emailing from @protonmail to @gmail). In time machine learning will also start piecing together discussions about people not present in the metadata (to/from/cc fields).

    Privacy is usually a herd immunity problem well before it’s an individual one. When someone talks about if they’d give a stranger access to their phone in order to get through security they tend to only talk about themselves and “their” privacy, not the 100s of people who’ve entrusted them with their data and access sometimes spanning a lifetime. In part it’s because the privacy conversation is almost exclusively self centric, I think it really needs be framed as a herd problem when not talking specifics.

  3. Lol Ryan did that pose as a joke during the show when I asked for a clean shot for the image. He had no idea how perfect it was for a thumbnail :slight_smile:

  4. Excellent episode as always! I was really glad to hear shout outs for some good software that I don’t hear much about on Linux podcasts like Standard Notes and MPV. As far as the /opt and /usr discussion goes, /usr is /UnixSystemResources and not /User if I remember correctly so, that might shed some light on the conflicting information Ryan had on what goes where in the file system…Though maybe not for the developer :wink:

  5. You got me. I will try out Standard Notes. It is time to use an encrypted service.
