You say in your blog post to "See the PureOS wiki to learn more about the extensive security features in PureOS." You link to your wiki's front page, but the word "security" is nowhere to be found on that page.
And if you click through to the only page that seems like it might have section on security, the "Overview and some general information about PureOS" , the word "security" is nowhere on that page either.
I'm still not clear where in the wiki this info is, but the security features and defaults are one of the most interesting things to me about an OS.
- It does OpenAuth right now, and mentions enterprise auth as an advantage for StackOverflow. Is enterprise auth (e.g. LDAP) on your radar as a future thing you just haven't been able to get to yet, or not considered part of the product at this point?
- Is there a capability in the product to disable specific components? For example, the discussion and StackOverflow/Quora-like features look great, but we're already using a messaging system so we don't need the Slack-like functions. Is there a way to not present those so users don't stumble into them thinking they're going to be used?
Thanks for all the work you're doing--this looks really interesting!
Yes it is
> Is there a capability in the product to disable specific components? [...] we don't need the Slack-like functions
Yes, there's an admin area "Features" tab, with a checkbox for disabling the chat.
(Someone else also wanted to disable it; they were using Slack already.)
Thanks you too for the questions
I cannot see how Stack Overflow still has no real competition after all they've done to encourage people to find other solutions :-/
(What OS do you use? Sometimes the website won't load in iPhone, although works for me in my iPhone 7)
The time for sound to go from your instrument to the ear of the other participants should be 30ms at most (equal to standing 10 meters apart).
I think low latency would also help make video conferences less tiring.
I personally migrated to Evolution at a particularly frustrating moment relatively recently, and it's been less painful for a lot of things. It has built-in calendar and PGP support, which certainly help. Unfortunately searching through message bodies is unusably slow.
I don't know whether my standards are unreasonably high, but several colleagues have expressed similar views on both.
I find the search in Thunderbird to be amazing. I have archives going back 20+ years and it searches them instantly.
Self-hosting email with dovecot, if that makes a difference.
Also a unified calendar is out of the question.
NoMachine is free-as-in-beer and it works nearly flawlessly across linux/windows/mac.
2: It's freemium with the following note: "If you need to create virtual Linux desktops on demand, want to limit the logins to SSH, or are using NIS, Kerberos or other enterprise functionalities, you need one of the NoMachine Enterprise products you can download"
Before I tried Windows Remote Desktop and TeamViewer and had issues with both. I specially had issues with the mouse not being replicated properly so 3D software bugged out.
I used to hate gnucash but I have basically become an accountant with my own life. For businesses it can definitely be used for minimal crm tracking and invoices.
- One general hangout, where everybody's muted except the quizz master
- One hangout per team to chat
- Google doc to fill in the answers (make sure everybody starts from a template, to easily count points)
- Google slide for the questions
Lots of fun! I think the quizz master role is more lonely, as you don't really hear anybody (we had 2 masters, I think it helped)
I think this would work reasonably well for Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples as well. Pictionary and Charades should also work.
- Drawful 2. Free on Steam. https://store.steampowered.com/app/442070/Drawful_2/
- Pictionary clones. I like https://sketchful.io/
- Local coop games via Steam Remote Play. https://store.steampowered.com/remoteplay
- Virtual scape rooms.
It's wonderful software for audio but for text it's rather useless. A quick disconnection means losing everything.
For reference, there is an open feature request for this, but nobody is working on it at the moment. https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/issues/2560
There's a free to use hosted service or host your own via a 10min install including https setup (runs fine on a $3 2GB Ubuntu VPS)
You can still support the authors by donating and/or buying licenses, services/consulting or support.
It is a trap. Traps are especially effective and harmful in panic mode when everyone catches the first bait.
In the long run, free software (not as in beer) is much better for everyone. Especially in panic it is essentiel to think thoroughly through your decisions.
Some people/organisations definitely do. (I would leave a company that decided to use Facebook For Work, and I wouldn't join a company that uses it.)
Purism additionally pretty much _have_ to take this stance for branding/reputational reasons, even if they didn't believe in it (which I'm 100% certain they do. This is _the_ moral imperative that is the core of their business.)
