In the initial years was major threat to software freedom. KDE itself was free software but it depended on proprietary (then) QT libraries.

QT became free software in 1999 with the release of QT 2.0.

Maybe we should celebrate KDE as a 22 years old free software project. :)

Just like email, the Fediverse is decentralised, so it is extremely difficult for anyone to ever buy it.

But there are also other reasons why decentralising makes sense for the Fediverse. Maybe the next most important reason is the ability to choose our own rules.

Each site (or "instance") on the Fediverse can decide its own rules for acceptable behaviour. This makes dispute resolution much more civilised, as people who disagree with an instance's rules can move to a different instance (or even start their own).

It also makes a lot more sense than having a massive megacorporation trying to make yes/no decisions on the entire world's disagreements.

Instances can also choose to block other instances. The worse an instance behaves, the more other instances will block it, until eventually the worst-behaved instances are just talking to themselves.

The Masto developers summed this all up well in their official video:

Other improvements

Tadaa, a #pinenote showing its own schematics. It seems like the size of the pages of schematics is almost perfect for this.
