Lineage is pretty difficult to install, but my understanding is that once it's been installed it is as easy to use as Google Android. For non-tech users, if you can find a tech person to do installation then this may be a viable option.

If you're in the market for a new phone, there's @Purism 's new kind of phone, Librem5, which is due out in April. It is entirely Google-free (and Android-free) and designed to be as private as possible:

i would love to get my phone google-free. are android alternatives like (?) already usable and stable for a non-tech user?

I've been in this industry for 25 years. I'm more aware than ever of how good people become part of bad machines; how ethical concerns get clobbered by engineering deadlines.

Facebook *is* that bad, and it will get worse.
We can't stop it by ourselves, not properly.
But it doesn't mean we have to go along with it.

If you've read this far, then talk to me. I don't have a solid single answer, but we can make things better. I'd say "we have the technology" but that's the easy part.

This is a decent breakdown. Aes has a big dictionary, sure, but he definitely knows what to do with it; his capacity for metaphor, flow awareness & frequently conversational tones are what really draw me to him.

Last night, I released SweetXheart, an autobiographical visual novel about race, gender, and microaggressions. I've been working on it in my spare time for 5 years and am happy to share it with all of you 💗

A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this game, which talks about a formative point in my life. It is not perfect, but I am nonetheless proud of what it's become.

Play the game here (it's free!):

"The most Gen X thing ever just happened."
"Oh! You mean the surviving members of Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden AND Nirvana are playing a show?"
"Someone made a nostalgic roleplaying game where you get to play latchkey kids riding everywhere on bikes?"
"Henry Rollins yelled at someone?"
"Then what?"

@Rheall has been really generous sharing her demi heart emoji. So I was inspired to make a few more pride hearts, as well!

No credit needed! Have fun with them, fediverse! :cc_nc_us:
