I like to write Linux tips for the Linux User Group Hannover on Twitter (@lughannover) and Mastodon ( in German. Sometimes I translate them into English and publish them on my personal account on Fosstodon ( or on Twitter.

Maybe we shouldn’t label #FOSS licenses as Permissive and Non-Permissive. Instead we could use Protective and Non-Protective licenses: Copyleft licenses that protects and respects our freedom and #OpenSource licenses that doesn’t. What do you think?

The release of @openSUSE Leap 15.2 🦎 is coming and the German Wiki needs to be updated. That’s why we have a team meeting this evening via Jitsi. I’m looking forward to it. 😀

Why is it important to be excellent to each other especially in #FOSS communities? Politeness - which sees sense in treating people with respect - is interested in facts and in truth and truth is a prerequisite for freedom. Being polite is being wise, Schopenhauer already knew.🙃

I love my @Fairphone 2 despite its quirks because of the ethical aspects and you can use #FOSS on it. I became a FP angel 👼 for Hannover because I like helping people. And if you have ever tried to fix a glued phone you are happy if you can change the display without a tool.🤗

I have prepared an old laptop 💻 with Linux for the child of friends. I showed the kids how to make music 🎶 with Sonic Pi (Pic 1). His favorite is painting pictures with @TuxPaintTweets. He loves the stamps and the magic 🧙 and creates true masterpieces.🙌 Pic 2 is my try.🧑‍🎨

I’m not so much on Twitter because the Fediverse is more my home. You’ll find me and other #FOSS activists on, but you can start with any instance you want. But @ShonalikaTilak can explain the Fediverse much better than I can. 😀 <3

I believe that #FOSS can change our society for the better. But FOSS is also increasingly used by companies to lock us into proprietary services. That’s why I support @fsfe. Software that was financed with tax money should be available to everyone as FOSS.
