A computer program is a collection of instructions that performs a specific task when executed by a computer. A computer requires programs to function.
An application program (app or application for short) is a computer program designed to perform a group of coordinated functions, tasks, or activities for the benefit of the user. Examples of an application include a word processor, a spreadsheet, an accounting application, a web browser, a media player, an aeronautical flight simulator, a console game or a photo editor.

Most importantly, it's not FreeSource Software.

Brandon Nelson

FreeSource Software
Nice, don't mind me stealing that terminology.

Joshua Collins
Joshua Collins

I've been considering a term like this too for permissively licensed code. Unlike the GPL, the software produced from the code is not free, but rather proprietary, so it is misleading to call it free software.

Colton King
Colton King

I call it proto-proprietary software, because while it is not technically proprietary yet, its purpose is to end up as it and writing it is donating code to proprietary software vendors.

Oliver Anderson

hmmm, let me check it then…

Josiah Parker

The sourcecode and binaries produced under MIT and BSD ARE Free Software.

The difference is that others have no obligation to publish the source, nor are they prevented from adding any additional restrictions.

As long as the release refrains from doing this, it remains Freesoftware. idk where you got it your information from but its wrong.

Carson Jones
Carson Jones

Wrong. Since BSD does not require making the source available, you can dump a binary licensed under BSD, which is not free software.

Nathan Cook
Nathan Cook

Then those other versions are non-free, the original is still free. Stop 'pretending' to be retarded.

Levi Ross
Levi Ross

binaries produced under MIT and BSD ARE Free Software.
No. Let's say Mr. B develops an application under the MIT license. He then compiles it and adds a download for the binary on his website. Users download what you are calling free software. Since that binary is free software by your logic, how do people use their freedom to modify the software. They don't have the source code for it.

Gabriel Fisher
Gabriel Fisher

Dashchan does not support Hispachan.

Levi Price

Look, if you're going to be retarded, don't pick something that can be easily googled to sperg about.

He then compiles it and adds a download for the binary on his website.
Like I said: If his binary is identical to the source version that's publicly available, it's still FreeSoftware. Otherwise it isn't

Joshua Thomas

Mason Hernandez

I never said that Mr. B made the code public.

Levi Richardson

Orfox, Orbot

Does anyone else get the impression that the Guardian repo apps are somewhat carelessly produced? Orbot's log messages seem vaguely inconsistent to me every time I run it, it once or twice it changed the language of one of its dialogs out of nowhere IIRC, the release archive on its website was inconsistently named as well last I checked, and the description of the ObscuraCam app mistakenly refers to it as "Orweb," which I'm not even sure is an active app anymore. (Not to mention that they can't even decide if to use asterisks or trans-ASCII chars for stars in their descriptions.) Together, it kind of undermines the gravity of that Guardian project.

t.not a newpipe dev or shill, i just genuinely like the piece of software

There's hardly anything wrong with shilling for libre software.

Firefox Klar

It's pretty, but I recently realized, by accident, that it identifies you by the "accept language" header. I would like a privacy-oriented browser to unify such data (which they already kind of have done with respect to UA -- they unified "Klar" and "Focus" in it), at least optionally. It's not useless if you Torify Klar.

k9mail

The ultimately probably innocuous fact that it is apparently derived from a Google app notwithstanding, I hate the design pattern that locks me out of the application's core interface before I set something (ie. an email account) up. I want to check it out and look around before I blindly feed it my data. Much of my trust towards an app comes from judging the stability and literacy of its UI.

does it always do true gapless playback?
does it support ReplayGain tags?
does it do high quality resampling when the hardware doesn't really support the sample rate of your files?
does it do proper dithering when converting to 16 bits?
does it support less mainstream formats such as Musepack?

Dylan Allen

Has OsmAnd improved over the years? Last time I tried using it I couldn't even search addresses. It would only let me use cross streets which I then needed GMaps to look up. At that point I was better off sticking to GMaps for directions.

When will Dashchan add hooktube embed support? I'm not too concerned because I mostly browse at home, but when I am using my phone, seeing posts referencing an embed that isn't showing is annoying.

Nathaniel Nguyen
Nathaniel Nguyen

Airplane mode doesn't do shit user
Yes, it does. It turns off the antennas in your phone. Said antennas cause interference and introduce noise to readings in several specialized equipment (back in the day planes were susceptible for this, hence "plane mode".)
You can easily check this by placing your phone besides a big speaker and then making a call. If the phone is not in airplane mode, you will hear interference in the speaker. If it is, you won't hear anything.
Why is it that I can go into some remote area hundreds of kilometers away from any sort of civlization with zero phone service, yet I can convientely still call people for 'emergencies'.
You can't. You can only call emergency numbers in the US and Europe because they put special infrastructure for emergency calls (and even then good luck making that call if there is, indeed, zero phone service in that area.)

It's like IceCat, the difference being that GNUzilla is more sensible and forks the ESR release, while Fennec forks the regular release channel.

F-droid is an app store for Android that contains only free as in freedom software, you can download it here:
f-droid.org/en/

Cooper Young
Cooper Young

Okay, I checked it, not your post, the Fdroid repository. Packages are not compiled and signed by developers. And there is no way to prove their authenticity otherwise. Seems like an outright honeypot to me. Dumb noobuntuers "yay, we fucking love package maynagers wazing wo-hoo! ding!" thought this was a good enough idea. Let me explain what's wrong: when I use a distribution like Debian, I trust it's developers with my whole system, therefore I trust them with modified software packages they ship. When using AUR, which is an exactly what Fdroid tries to cosplay, I import every developer's keys prior manually, unless I want myself to be rused by random highschool hackerman.

Wyatt Taylor

What is going on with the influx of retards into Holla Forums recently?
People that insist that web browsers are "leaking IPs to web servers" or that the guy saying MIT license isn't freesoftware because it's not copy left.
How about the retard who thinks he needs to re-license his publicly avalible GPL program as proprietary in order to sell it for money.

Why is Holla Forums flooded with gypsy niggers making 20 posts per thread?

Owen Price

Isaiah Nelson

Unfortunately Osmand isn't useful day-to-day for those of us who rely on public transit in many cities. I'd love to ditch all things google for good, but I don't really have the option to not use google maps unless I download the schedule PDFs of all 189 bus and train routes in my city and manually work out connecting schedules. Even my city's official transit app is just a google maps wrapper, and every single transit schedule app on F-droid does not support my city at all.

Though I do love and heavily rely on Osmand when travelling. That offline map functionality is just glorious. It's saved my bacon more than once.

Jonathan Clark
Jonathan Clark

It's a real good thing too seeing as how devs could just inject whatever shit they want.

A-fucking-men to that! There's all too many real-world examples of developers (particularly on the Play Store) selling out to some random Chinese data-mining company, and those Chinese companies pushing out super-sketchy updates since they now have the signing keys. Chinafire selling SuperSU to CCMT, anyone?

I'll take F-Droid's "we repo devs compile all, we repo devs sign all, we repo devs are god" approach over the fucking Play Store's "lol, feel free to sell out for a quick buck at the expense of your users" bullshit anyday.

See above. Fdrod has Telegram with proprietary dependencies and no one gives a shit. Comparing developer's redistributable files with your own compiled binaries and then signing the original would do the job just right. This way package manager ensures that files are received from Fdroid maintainers, and user-controlled key storage ensures that they were not modified by non-developers.
Are you from 2010? Few recent tablets come without LTE. Only option today is hot air blower and steady hands.
All cities that have botnet transit planning apps already have a clockwork-like schedules, you won't loose much by waiting few minutes at a bus stop. That's from my personal experience.

Go read the description on F-Droid for Telegram. I quote, "Several proprietary parts were removed from the original Telegram client" etc etc. The version of Telegram on F-Droid is specifically described as replacing binary blobs with forked sources that replicate those blobs functionality, or removing functionality entirely if alternatives to blobs are completely unavailable. Aside from using Telegram's closed servers, the Telegram client on F-Droid does NOT use proprietary dependencies.

Show us on the doll where F-Droid's maintainers touched you.

Are you from 2010? Few recent tablets come without LTE. Only option today is hot air blower and steady hands.

Yeah, this is just completely wrong. Thirty seconds on amazon will pull up a shittonne of recent tablets without LTE, at all price points.

All cities that have botnet transit planning apps already have a clockwork-like schedules, you won't loose much by waiting few minutes at a bus stop. That's from my personal experience.

How the fuck is that supposed to help with figuring out CONNECTING schedules? Do you have reading comprehension issues? My city is just a little on the large side. When I need to figure out how to get to some place I've never been, I need to plan out a multiple-stop route. Waiting a few extra minutes at a bus or train stop won't do jack shit to accomplish that. Bad weather can screw up those "clockwork-like schedules" pretty easily.

Not him but I'm not seeing the source for perfect viewer, its certainly not on f-droid. The difference though is that Tachiyomi lets you search and view many different taiwanese comic book sites. You can use it to batch download from those sites or just use it as a reader for those sites.
Also I recommend TachiyomiEH instead, it supports more sites and the builds don't break with every update like the one on f-droid does(it can auto-update from github instead).

Aiden Perez

Actually looking at it, I don't think TachiyomiEH will be necessary anymore once f-droid fixes the build for 0.7.0 since the non dev version now supports plugins. Avoiding gayhub would be nice.

ddb2 on android, foobar on desktop.
unfortunately, haven't found anything that ticks all the points among FLOSS. maybe I will make one myself eventually, but this is far from an easy task.
I'm looking for support of most useful formats (and not only the mainstream; this is not hard if decoding is delegated to ffmpeg btw), maximum glitch-proof (not possible on mainstream operating systems because they are not realtime, but it should try hard to never glitch), DSP support (including convolver, good resampler, crossfeed, etc), replaygain support, and everything one would expect from a music player.
ddb2 doesn't meet all of this but it's close.
foobar2000 is almost ideal, but it's not free as in freedom, and it has a couple of stupid limitations which are too hard to explain for those who aren't using it for 8+ years or so.

How the fuck is that supposed to help with figuring out CONNECTING schedules? Do you have reading comprehension issues? My city is just a little on the large side. When I need to figure out how to get to some place I've never been, I need to plan out a multiple-stop route. Waiting a few extra minutes at a bus or train stop won't do jack shit to accomplish that. Bad weather can screw up those "clockwork-like schedules" pretty easily.
Don't your bus stops have a list of all buses that go through that particular stop, with all the stops they individually go through? With that, you don't need all those PDFs because you know where to go.

it cannot do any DSP delay compensation when converting (that is, if I use a filter which has a delay, there's no way to make foobar2000 compensate for it) this results in wrong resulting records lengths and/or misplaced track transitions. the only practical way to combat this is to not use DSP-effects with non-negligible delays. (unfortunately, not all useful effects are possible with near-zero algorithmic delay)

converter's behavior for DSP restarting is really limited; it either treats all tracks as completely separate (thus potentially introducing discontinuities) or treats all selection as one continuous record (doesn't make any sense for converting multiple albums in 1 go; especially given the previous problem); I need to select each album separately to have the desired results.

there's no way to paste items to playlist at the end using only keyboard; I can only paste before the last element. "solvable" by having a dummy silence track at the very bottom.

there's no way (even with add-ons) to let it feed a few seconds of silence before starting to play a track (but not do this on automatic track changes), I have to manually add "silence://2" to the playlist before the album I want to play and start with this. this is needed if the selected output method for some reason may glitch for first seconds, a very common thing actually, especially with wine.

it doesn't save nothing if it is killed abnormally (crash for example), it's a PITA if you forgot to manually save your playlists and settings and crashed it (that is, gracefully quit it and launch again) and crashing it under wine is 100% possible.

IIRC, functionality for editing/adding/viewing embedded CUE sheets is lacking but I haven't seen files which use it for a while as I got rid of them in my collection.

it understands UTF-8 CUE sheets only if they have a BOM (that's really stupid for UTF-8 as it's byte-order neutral by design); if there's no BOM, it will interpret it as some other encoding, often displaying garbage.

it can't read CUE sheets with precision greater than 75 fps (as in CDDA), but almost no player does…

when converting to 16-bit, the dithering is not configurable; it's either on or off, and the amount of dithering is almost too excessive. one can prevent harmonic distortion with a lot less added noise. it's okay for listening anyway, but excessive noise, even when not heard, leads to worse compression efficiency by subsequent compression.

random playback is quite limited; one can jump to a random track, but not to a start of a random album. (possibly solved by addons but I rarely need it, so I don't feel like increasing attack surface only for this)

level matching is only possible by putting ReplayGain tags inside files; there's no way to do it transparently on the fly (automatically scanning files in background as they are added and storing it in a separate DB)

I actually started coding a music player with a coworker just to get this feature.

Also with the pasting songs at the end, noticed it too.

I guess it's kinda the effects of getting spoiled. being with foobar for so long only get's us started on the shortcoming, but any other player pales in comparison to the point of being useless in the shadow of the dependable colossus that is foobar2k.

Before I roll my own, what is the absolute best text editor for Android with FOSS license?
minimal requirements:
1) Up-to-date look and feel ("material design", native to Android 7.1)
2) stable, never crashes
3) can save&load both to its own private data folder (inaccessible by other apps) and to any other place on the filesystem
4) small APK size, no botnet features
5) can accept text from other apps via implicit intents

I tried a few from F-Droid and each one failed by several of those simple points. Yet I know that it's really easy to do them right.

I was using Hackers Keyboard but the creator hasn't updated in awhile now and the English autocorrect dictionary is no longer on the Play Store OR on F-Droid and has not been for months now. It seems to have been abandoned.

You should try eleven, its the default of LineageOS and it was added recently to Fdroid. The only problem with it is that the devs seem to suffer from the same illness that the GNOME people do and it has very few options/configuration. (All Lineage apps are like this)
There is also Vanilla Music, very nice simple player. It has a better metadata reader, as my library didn't became a mess like it did with eleven.

You don't need to root your device though you retard. The problem is Android for security reasons installs its apps under its own user. That's what Termux is for, it basically creates its own root with its own package under its own user, like a chroot but not really.

m8, I know of the meme that Linux "can't get viruses". That only exists since most broad viruses target the largest user group--windows. There are still viruses for Linux, and especially many broad/generic viruses for the Android version of it.

I am not like you with "nothing to hide". I protect every device I have on all 7 layers of the OSI model. I wanted a recommendation for to help with Android / Lineage since many I've tried have done much more than block viruses. They are what you guys would call a "botnet".

How do you protect the session layer? Delete your cookies or something?

Nathaniel Rivera
Nathaniel Rivera

Viruses are mostly an OS design issue. Android generally speaking doesn't get viruses because every application in Android is installed as its own user. You can't spoof Android applications because the APK has to be signed with a unique signature to even be installed (lest you get the "Package appears to be corrupted" error) because package signatures are how Android determines wither or not the application is already installed. You never even hear about modern Windows getting viruses because Microsoft learned from their mistakes (there are viruses that can disable the Windows anti-virus services but they need to be installed and executed locally first)

No, you fucking idiot. The most profitable targets are servers (Linux dominant), critical systems (linux dominant) and smartphones (linux dominant). Desktop computers are irrelevant. Linux is just secure by default and getting malware on it requires the user to allow it's execution manually through a super user permission. Getting malware on windows is easy because it's an insecure platform by design.
