Generally I recommend this video[13 min] to new GNU/Linux users.

It's because GNU/Linux is not just about better quality, powerful softwares. There are certain civility one should learn when joining our community... And this video is the beginning.

Fight Against

"Digital Restrictions Management is the practice of imposing technological restrictions that control what users can do with digital media. When a program is designed to prevent you from copying or sharing a song, reading an ebook on another device, or playing a single-player game without an Internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good; it prevents you from doing what would be possible without it."

Yes, The name matters. It will always remind us how and why everything started. Use the term GNU/Linux instead of "Linux" .

Emacs, Guix, Emacs-Guix errors 

Emacs-Guix package is giving me errors on foreign distro, Anyone knows how to fix it?

When I run,
M-x guix-generations

(I'm getting this kind of errors from all guix related commands)
Error in evaluating guile expression: ice-9/boot-9.scm:1669:16: In procedure raise exception: Unbound variable: generation-sexps

Multiline test toot 2

"And some quote"

Started doing Emacs package management with guix.

Next I'll probably do the Latex package management with guix.

One package manager to rule them all.


The PATH related problems in Eshell for programs installed with guix is resolved when I installed Emacs from guix.

Feels weird when people comment and interact with a post which is more than a year old.

A police van went by this morning asking those who were out for a walk to go back home.
The situation is this bad.

Re: "GNU Social Contract" 1/2

GNU package maintainers have committed to do work to maintain and add
to the GNU system, but not anything beyond that. We have never
pressed contributors to endorse the GNU Project philosophy, or any
other philosophical views, because people are welcome to contribute to
GNU regardless of their views.

Re: "GNU Social Contract" 2/2

To change that -- to impose such requirements -- would be radical,
gratuitous, and divisive, so the GNU Project is not entertaining the
idea. Likewise, we will not ask package maintainers to be "members"
instead of volunteers. If you contribute to GNU, you are already a
member of the GNU community.

FLoC away from Chrome is simply the best headline I've seen today

One thing I was worried about installing guix is, I may have to build many software from source. But so far the softwares I have installed already came pre-built, so that's nice. Also guix website says it has "17020 packages transparently available as pre-built binaries."

Is there an emacs command for evaluating an emacs lisp expression and printing the result to the current buffer instead of the echo area?
