    I'm going for something like that. I think one of the main differentiators is that mine will be open source.

    Not in development yet unfortunately. I'm going to work on a 2D Godot game before I try to make a 3D one. I want to build up a bit of experience in making video games. I probably won't start working on this game for at least a year.

    Yes, but there are also plenty of open source projects that people work on for free, because they find it enjoyable.

    There's nothing wrong with someone playing the game in a way that makes it more comfortable for them. I switch between source ports depending on my mood. I have Chocolate Doom for when I'm feeling more old school, and GZDoom for when I want some more modern quality of life tweaks.

    I used to think LBRY was cool until I saw this post on their official blog. Kind of turned me off.

    So it's weird that Gravatar isn't open source. WordPress is.

    Though TBH, it's not like this alternative is desperately needed IMO, since Automattic (who owns Wordpress and Gravatar) is actually a pretty decent/ethical company by all accounts.

    I have ADHD, General Anxiety Disorder, OCD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. It's a fun combination.

    I'm not entirely certain, but that sounds a bit like OCD, especially the obsessive part. I would talk to a therapist though if it's really bothering you. I'm not a doctor though, I just have OCD.

    If using Windows isn't essential for you, I suggest using Linux. It's free, runs great on older hardware and quite easy to switch over if you choose a distribution (flavor) like Manjaro. It's also just as user friendly as Windows if you use something like the KDE Desktop (software that controls how your system looks.) You just download it to a thumbdrive, plug it in, reboot your computer, and it will walk you through installing it, which consists of clicking a few 'next' buttons (very similar to installing Windows 10). I'm happy to help you if you DM me.

    I think this would be a great opportunity for someone in the Fediverse to try and build an open source and decentralized replacement for Stack Exchange.

    That's a fair point. Just taking the UI would probably be the best course of action.

    They're also working on fixing all the issues you've listed. This is one of the meta-issues I've been following that's tracking most of the mentioned things.

    Telegram's client being open source, someone could potentially fork it and make it work with Matrix.

    Have you heard of Matrix? It seems to fit all of your criteria except for the encryption, and that's about to be fixed very soon. They're days away from turning encryption on by default.

    I switched from Google to DuckDuckGo this year, expecting it to be a bit of a sacrifice but... it's not?

    The interface is really slick, I'll give it that. Unfortunately, I can't use it because it's not on Linux. Besides, Lutris is open source and is on Linux, so I'll stick with that.
