    I think I'll formulate my statement more precisely.

    One is unable to see an image taken on a trip by a friend - depicting a forein culture which uses a symbol which in their context symbolises (something like) peace and in ones context is a symbol of hatred - without getting offended, because one is not able to understand the differences in scope and context. And then letting that affect permanently the relationship with ones friend.

    I dont think this is acceptable behaviour. ergo One is an idiot or has other serious problems that make it hard to impossible to be friends with.

    *It is possible that the friend is the idiot and is showing the pictures of his trip at a very impropiate time. eg. one is complaining about a swastika painted by nazis in town and the friend goes hey look here, its a symbol of peace in japan.

    i have never heard anybody complain about latency in messaging, and around here nobody, as in not even grandma, uses sms or any carrier based messaging. maybe we've got better infrastructure here

    I'm playing Dorfromantik

    its a very beautiful and chill game, that puts you in a state of flow and makes you dream about it. it has some challanges and rewards, but can be played and enjoyed by anyone. and once you "lose" you have this beautiful landscape you build. i'm playing it for 2 weeks and its already high up in my all time favourites.

    must play for people who can't or won't invest hours of their day but still look for a deeply satisfying experience.

    i think its because the more degrees of (creative) control you want, the more complex needs to be the interface. and i say that from the perspective of a manual worker.

    I use lots of very simple tools, so the control comes from my ability to actualy wield them. which takes a long time to aquire. whch just means all complexity lies within me and my skills.

    there are some complex machines that do things better and/or faster, and are intuitive as in there is one button. but they are very limited in what they can do.

    and there are some very complex machines that can do a lot more and faster/better, but because they do things differently than me, they need to know different things, so the interface gets very complex very fast.

    e.g. to work metall by hand is "easy" . look and feel it, and you know instantly with what and how to work it.
    machines that can only cut are "easy" you just tell the thickness and push a button.
    let it cut and bend by a machine, you need to tell the machine what kind of metall it is, exactly the thickness, and the exact dimensions, then you need to thell it exactly where to cut it and where to bend it etc. and it is still very limited in what it does, but the interface complexity grew exponential

    so there is obviously a tradeoff there and y think it translates well to computers. the more complex the interface the more power it can/should give you.

    we should strive for simplicity for simple tools, eg. email, browsing etc.
    but we should allow complexity where we need control eg. shell, design, tables, anything where learning something upfirst allows you to safe time or nerves later.

    I'm a linux only gamer since the early proton times. things got good so fast its incredible. Outside of some/a lot newish AAA titles everything is running nearly flawless.

    for me as a mostly indie and patient gamer (something i can advise everybody to get into) and linux veteran, the experience feels amazing, especially as i can use an OS for anything else that works so much better for me than any comercial alternative.

    if you gonna do it or thinking about, maybe starting with dual boot and give yourself time to transition (also advisable) buy linux supported hardware (e.g AMD, fuck nvidia for not opensourcing their drivers and making everything more difficult) get a feel for what distro works best for you.

    or dont and do what already works for you. if you dont have a ideological, monetary or "learing something" reason, save yourself time and trouble and go with what you know.

    ps. lots of games run actually smoother on linux ;-)

    yes i know, but i can live without nextcloud &co for a pretty long while, I cant without email. I mean on my nextcloud is more sensitive data but not having acces to my email would really really hurt my life :-) but yes, in the end, i want to learn these things, and the only way to learn it is to do it i guess.

    But i will look more troughly into the gsuite/oauth offerings, as i might have some misconceptions there

    thank you for your answer. part of the whole idea is to have and give a local alternative to the big datasilos, so gsuite is out of question. And looking just now at AuthO which belongs to a 6 billion US company does not instill good feelings either :-)
    Is there a free/libre alternative? I would prefer having no SSO at all than use one of these two. what do you think about using the built in solutions of every service? its a lot less confortable but it seems i can fuck up a lot less.
    And yes, i dont do email myself, i let migadu do it for me. as that is to critical of an infrastructure.

    I'm setting up a server with nextcloud, plex, matrix and some other things I don't yet know, for some friends and family, (about 20 people if I get lucky)
    and now I heard of a thing called single sign on/unified login. (Login to different services with the same user/pw and/or login once, access to all services)

    so far I found out about Keycloak https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keycloak

    is this what I'm looking for? does anybody have experience in this? Are there other/better/simpler solutions for this?
