I’m always on the hunt for the ideal Music streaming service. Currently, I use Apple Music since my whole family is pretty much in the Apple ecosystem. I myself actually use Windows, Linux, and Android most of the time, and it is possible to use Apple Music on all of them; either with a native app or third party.
Sometimes though, I wonder if Apple Music is the best choice. I rule Spotify out because there app is pretty awful IMHO. Which then leaves Amazon Music, which actually has an excellent selection and price point, but there app is not the best either.
I wonder what else is out there. Mind you, my music interest is pretty eclectic, but I do listen to a lot of Indie and Americana music, some real oddball hard to find stuff.
And of course, there is the build your own collection idea, but without becoming a pirate I don’t see gathering enough music to not bore myself or sell my children to pay for it all.
So please share what you’re doing, especially if you are a cross-platform user.
Trying to settle on a Desktop of DE to keep for an extended period of time. Right now it’s between Plasma and Sway.
I was thinking of learning to make @GTK@floss.social apps, and I know @email@example.com has a great beginner tutorial for making apps for their distro. I wondered if there was something just as comprehensive that was more @firstname.lastname@example.org centric for a newb to make an app? Thanks #linux
When I think of getting a new computer, I’m always thinking laptop. But the reality is, my laptop rarely leaves my desk. Maybe I should do a tower, like a beastly System76 Thelio? I would get more bang for my buck, I feel. #linux
Another challenge I have is, I really want a Mac. But the platform goes against many of my ideals, it’s anti #righttorepair, it’s a #walledgarden, and though they are much more private than a Windows machine, they make questionable choices when it comes down to profits… which push me to #Linux.
Still trying to figure out which my next PC will be. Mainly it’s the thought to get a Mac or to stay in the Linux and Windows PC world. Sticking with Windows long term is a no-go. Linux is the true choice for privacy, I feel the mac may be a middle ground, with much better privacy than Windows but not as much as Linux. But the Mac will have much more functionality, let alone I already have an iPhone, Apple Watch, Homepods, and an AppleTV.
I think Linux is the idealistic, stand your ground, fight back against the man choice; but I do want some convenience. Also, the Linux side has the right to repair options if I go with a Framwork laptop or System76. I still have a bit of time to make the decision, but I always bounce back and forth. I may never come to a sound conclusion.
