Just give us access to the source under gpl or something or at least just give us access and accept pull requests. I can list at least three MAJOR bugs off the top of my head I encounter almost every time o use it which I'm sure the community will fix straight away. You are literally refusing free bugfixes by not doing this.

But its been 9 years.

4. Why are notifications not native? Even on windows this makes no sense any more. It looks like hot shit every time I get a popup in the "bottom left" except its not at the bottom because it won't draw over the bar thing in my DE. They don't even follow the users global notification preferences (assume a byproduct of not being native)

5. The colour scheme doesn't follow gtk or qt

If anyone from valve read this (highly doubt it but still)

Valve, love you but... WHY IS YOUR LINUX CLIENT USING ITS OWN GUI TOOLKIT. Like you pump all this effort into porting your client yo Linux, proton, porting all of your engines and making Linux better in general and then you do this.
1. Why is it proprietary? and why are your engines proprietary for that matter come on goldsrc is more than 20 years old
2. Why are you still rolling your own GUI toolkit? To carry the UI over from windows? This might make sense as a short term

Welcome to centralized Internet 🤷 A number of high profile websites are down right now, apparently due to a failure at Fastly (?)

Fuck Nintendo man, who goes hmmm yes today I will implement a dark pattern to try to force the user to update their device by flashing a big fuck off popup with the yes button selected by default "asking" you if you want to update every time you launch a game. At least I don't pay them for this shit

Bittorrent is defiantly the best piece of web technology to have been created in the last 20 years

What is the strange obsession of big game studios and weird proprietary video codecs like "oh we need it to take up tiny amount of space and use next to no resources because we need that for the game", we live in an age of hardware accelerated video decode (which these codecs can't take advantage of because they are so closed) by using the weird codec you're wasting resources since the decode will have to run on the CPU. I don't get it

Just published Google lawsuit evidence indicates that like always retained users' location data, even if disabled in user interface, to the extent that its own employees flashed LineageOS on their phones to avoid tracking. Full thread on twitter.com/jason_kint/status/
