Escrito à máquina...

opensource

I first heard about Markdown about two years ago when I started keeping a simple blog on Write.as, Escrito à máquina.... Since then, I've been trying to find a simple but good Markdown editor so that I can write my blog posts and some other texts using Markdown even when I'm not online and save them on my computer without having to go the copy>new document>paste>save route.

Even though I've been using a GNU/Linux system for about twenty years, I'm not am IT guy. I value good software, i. e., software that common people, people like me, people that are not IT gurus can use without having to take an IT degree! I also value Free software and I like to support those who dedicate their time and their expertise to the community whenever I can.

So, when I search for a programme, I look for simplicity, functionality, a programme or service that is reliable and gets the job done. Preferably, well done! And I prefer Open Source, Free software!

I erased my old accounts because I was tired of being a supporter of networks owned by Mark Zuckerberg, a man that doesn't respect anyone but himself and who has made his name and fortune based on the creation of networks that make money through the abusive use of our personal data whether we agree with it or not!

That happened in December 2018. In February 2019, as I told you before, I joined Mastodon.

So, how has my 500-day experience on the Fediverse been?, you may ask.

Well, I can say that travelling this road hasn't been as smooth as I wished it to be. Let's see why...
