I installed the @vivaldibrowser on two systems — one @fedora, the other @Windows. I already had it on my @CentOS Stream 8 system. For me, sync is table stakes, and Chromium's removal of that integral feature closed the door on both it and Chrome. https://vivaldi.com

There are a whole lot of @CentOS Stream 8 updates waiting for you today or tomorrow

Chromium 93 migrated to @debian Testing today. It hit Unstable on Sept. 19. Still waiting for it to appear in Stable. FYI, last Stable update was 90.0.4430.212 on May 21. For those keeping track, Chromium 94 just came out (and is already in the Flatpak). https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/chromium

I am starting to look at @ubuntu with new (and very favorable) eyes. The relative stability, lack of drama and overall polish are starting to look very, very good.

How to intervene when a manager is gaslighting their employees - Mita Mallick/Harvard Business Review https://hbr.org/2021/09/how-to-intervene-when-a-manager-is-gaslighting-their-employees

It's Windows 10 test week, and I am here to report that the Edge browser has made many performance improvements. If I were running Windows regularly, I would probably dump Chrome for it.

I upgraded my Windows laptop to Ruby 3.0.2. No drama. It works.

Today's CentOS Stream 8 updates on my system:

  • gdm
  • gnome-shell
  • llvm-libs
  • strace

(plus I installed the updated mutter from a downloaded RPM a week or so ago)

All in all, a light updates day (for me anyway)

There are a lot of CentOS Stream 8 updates available today — including the Mutter fix for the recent regression that was crashing GNOME in Wayland.

Today's updates on my @CentOS Stream 8 system:

  • device-mapper-persistent-data
  • glusterfs
  • libcap
  • osinfo-db
  • selinux-policy

RHEL surprises me. Somehow, some way, Java 17, Ruby 3.0.2, MySQL 8 and Node 16.7 are now available in @CentOS Stream 8. All but Java are implemented as modules, so you need to tap into it that way. http://mirror.keystealth.org/centos/8-stream/AppStream/x86_64/os/Packages/?C=M;O=D
