Ah heck, just caught up with the #9front list. Rest in peace Mycroftiv, you made a really awesome community with 9gridchan.
Ok, I now have permission to talk about this project in full and in public. I'm working with Alan Kay to build six replicas* of a Xerox PARC Alto display for use in a museum exhibit**. Visitors will see a real Alto and then walk over to one of the replicas to futz with Smalltalk '78***.
Here's a nice writeup of a different project that rejuvenated an actual Alto.
Just an opinion...
After reading https://raphlinus.github.io/rust/gui/2022/07/15/next-dozen-guis.html and seeing the various atrocities that have been called beautiful user interfaces over the years, and comparing these to the results of Rio, 8 ½, and Uxn, I am 100% convinced that any reasonable GUI going forward should just dismiss the entire idea of window frames all-together.
No titles, no zoom controls, no resize control, no built-in scroll bars, nothing. Only a reasonably thick, black border which can be used to move and resize the layer.
Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!
@Longplay_Games you're btw my first professional gamedev contact in fediverse. And then also an Unreal dev! You get double bonus points! 😉😅
Unity (former game engine company) has merged with an actual adware and malware distribution company. That's not an exaggeration. Fake Flash installers, was blacklisted by Microsoft's anti-malware tool, VirusTotal entires, that kind of thing.
Don't build your games on engines you don't have the source code to.

TikTok wollte die DSGVO so interpretieren, dass die #Profilierung von NutzerInnen alleine auf ein einseitig unterstelltes “berechtigtes Interesse“ zu stützen wäre. Das hätte massive Nachteile gebracht.
