Thanks, @MichaelTunnell ! Great show as usual.

News of Qt is pretty hard-hitting. I was on their site just weeks ago looking at licensing because I think contributing to UBPorts will need Qt and was surprised at how expensive the commercial version is. Wasn’t GPL 3 designed to stop source being closed further down the line? My guess is there might be a mass migration away from Qt. Perhaps the KDE team would be best placed for a fork? I don’t use Plasma myself, but I wonder how hard this will hit Qt-based apps :frowning: This is the worst news since CentOS 8 closing.

I’ve never bought Apple hardware, though I do see a value to making Linux available on it, especially as their own policies seem to encourage discarding functional machines that their OS abandons. I hope Asahi goes well.

Personally I think Intel’s had it’s day, for the main part. They’re constantly being outdone by AMD and if the industry continues to follow Apple like it often does, it’s looking like ARM might become the more important architecture in the coming decade.

Yea it is annoying and the price is insane.

Qt isn’t licensed exclusive to GPL, they’ve always had a structure that allowed this. Originally it was proprietary completely.

Qt is still open for non-LTS so it wont be catastrophic but it is still significantly bad even then. I dont know if a fork is in order or not because KDE is not that big of a project to sustain that kind of thing since Qt is a gigantic code base. It will take a multiple org effort to fork it.

On the Linux Mint topic, secondary mouse wheel is the mouse wheel tilt, as in, the wheel clicks side to side.

I’ve had this mouse for years and now I know the wheel clicks on the right side. WHAT?!!!?!?

I used to have a mouse that had the clicks on left and right but that is not what secondary mouse wheel means. It refers to mice that simply have 2 scrolls wheels like the Logitech MX Master 3 (got a lot of comments on YouTube and telegram about this mouse)
