Rebranding and white-labelling Free and opensource software apps and selling them as made in India is pathetic. I pity the nationalists who get fooled by these opportunistic people.

Upgrading my laptop os. The screen says "upgrading system... Do not turn off your computer. 0% complete" this is for past one hour I am wondering if this thing will stay like this forever.

A simple solution to COWIN app/website debacle is to have dedicated websites per districts. Why do you have to make it one nation one thing every time? At least if the website of one district stops working people in other district won't face issues. Decentralization is the key in country like India. Maybe the people running the Govt. should try going back to high school to learn civics again.

Once you get used to it single click to open files and folders is really quick and satisfying.

If anybody is interested in translating into their native language or improve the existing translations. I have written a guide for you.

aaaah, amyspark merged their huge high bitdepth and dithering gradients patch, can now do high quality gradients in all color spaces (see image).

Together the svg icc-color patch, Krita can now do stop gradients in any color it understands, including the unbounded floating point ones, which was a huge missing tool for painting HDR/scene referred images.

I've been waiting for this forever :D
