The Finns do some cool stuff. These folks did some precise cutting of the ice surrounding their cottage to turn it into a giant ice carousel, complete with a sauna (because Finland).

I'd love to see a first-launch pop-up which prompts users to choose whether they want to see this menu bar or not and lets them know that hiding it may make certain functions 'hotkey only'.

For example, as a long-time user I know that F5 _does_ provide the refresh functionality that Linus was looking for, but I was actually surprised to realized that the default configuration hid the entire menu bar and, therefore, hid the menu option from new users!

I am a huge fan of KDE's Dolphin, but the latest video is a treasure map to how to make it better!

The amazing devs in the @kde community should look at the pain points exposed in that video and I'm certain that Dolphin will benefit greatly!

I've done some research and I'm pretty sure I know what this is, but I'd love to hear guesses to see what everyone else thinks?

@kde I would absolutely encourage everyone to do exactly that—it's unfortunate that I don't have time to contribute to KDE, though I do contribute to other FOSS projects—but the LTT videos are coming from the perspective of a layperson who is not already invested in the ecosystem.

On the page that loads there is the article, but also, somewhere on the right, often near the bottom, there is a small video player. Inexplicably, it was not blocked by your ad-blocker.

For filesystem nerds, this is a neat concept for a project. I think this is based on a fractal tree index rather than just a b-tree. The implications for write performance are super interesting.
