TROM Meeting:

A bunch of wonderful humans who came to visit us. People who help this project, and people who are very good friends. So calm, so nice, so human.

A huge thank you to them all. Too bad we could not gather all of them for the meeting. But we will do more.

We mostly meet in order to have some good time together but also to work on some TROM stuff. We will try to work on the transcriptions for the TROM II documentary and a few other things, will see.

Looking forward to release the documentary in June. #tromlive

TROM II: A Message to The Aliens (trailer)

Now in 8 languages: Russian, Romanian, Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan, German, Greek and Traditional Chinese. Enjoy!

A big thank you to all of those who have helped with the subtitles and are still helping! #tromlive

TROM II: A Message to the Aliens (official poster)

The documentary will be released in June. The trailer will be available this week.

Kings and Queens are a primitive and insulting notion. A ruler over the ruled. A "have it all" over "have it none". A hilarious imagination supported by primitive minds, that results into a needless and cruel power imbalance.

It is astonishing that the people who believe in this, do not find it ridiculous and disgusting.


TROM II Documentary Updates and Release

Finally the TROM II documentary is done and it was sent to the ones who took part in it for review. From now one there will be no change, unless they notice anything that is REALLY REALLY bad and needs to be fixed. Or typos.

4 parts, some 5 hours long. Soon we will make a post about it and about when we plan to release it.

Stay tuned and follow us on the fedierse or via our updates


Some people are spreading the word about TROM by putting a giant sticker on their Taxi cars 😀

Thank you! Maybe more can spread the word about TROM in any way they can ;).


WHO for all.


Our Invidious instance won't show up the popular/trending stupidities anymore, but a simple page:

Let's not make ourselves dumber and dumber 😁.

It is up to you what you search for, but we do not want to promote the youtube garbage collection.


Schools are not for learning.

Just so everyone knows, boobs and genitalia are not bad. They can cause a lot of pleasure. Penises too. And overall the naked human body.

Therefore we won't remove any video from our Peertube instance just because some people are too sensitive to the naked body. You know, you too heave one. Enjoy it!

Guns, poverty, wars, violent games, ads, and so forth, are the ones we should stay away from and consider unacceptable. Not the naked human body.

The Bullshitters, but better.

We have updated our TROM Files and now we provide a much better Photo Gallery app. An almost complete alternative to the Google Photos. You can sort your images in albums, sort by date, add tags, folders and more.

On top of that you can now directly edit your photos from the app itself:

You can add text, resize photos, add filters, tweak the brightness, contrast and the like.

We give 5GB for free for everyone. And if anyone needs more you can let us know. We do it trade-free of course.

Enjoy the beauty of Nextcloud!

PS: a few features are missing now, such as the ability to extract archives or convert videos. We will enable them as soon as they become compatible with this new version of Nextcloud.


A reminder that we provide a ton of trade-free services via

Social (facebook alternative) - - more info
Files (alternative to google drive or dropbox) - - more info
Videos (alternative to youtube) - - more info
Maps (alternative to google maps and the like) - - more info
Chat (alternative to dicord, whatsapp and the like) - - more info
Office (alternative to microsoft office and/or google docs) - - more info

And more....


Laptop Donation Campaign -

By Tio:

This is a donation campaign to help me, Tio, buy a new laptop that will allow me to become more mobile while having all I need to work on TROM and its baby projects. Please see the donation campaign for a detailed explanation and help if you can.

Basically I need to take what is in this photo (except those galaxies):

With all of the shoeboxes full of HDDs and cables:

And put it into this:

Thank you very much if you can help out! 😀


The UN has done it! We will fix it. Finally!

FIFA World Trade

The current FIFA event shows a few things that should have been obvious anyway:

1. Slavery was not abolished, it was reduced and redefined at best.
2. High level sport is a business, nothing more.
3. Greenwashing is the most popular practice of pretty much all companies and organizations.
4. Not many people care about climate change, slavery, dictatorship regimes, and so forth.
5. The ones in power (from states to organizations like FIFA) care only about profits and lie endlessly.
6. We are fucked, nothing changes. The same trade based society keeps on being in the driving seat, deciding where we go.

"The OTHER big problem with the Qatar World Cup ->>


The idea of launching satellites to display ads to humans, from space, sounds like an utter idiocracy. But it is something some are thinking seriously about. See here.
"Space advertising turns out to have a potential for commercial viability."

A trade based society where humans need and want (because of constant training) to trade this for that, even when we have enough to provide this or that without trading anything in return.

If we keep this trade society alive, humanity will get trashed. And is likely to be too late anyway....

The wonderful Roma (a very special TROM-friend) is visiting us.

On top of having a great time together and very interesting discussions, we worked on TROMjaro these days a lot. We will release a new ISO soon that brings something we truly needed: packages for our scripts. We have a bunch of scripts for fixes, and for the layout and theme switcher. Now we won't have to ask the current TROMjaro users to do this or that change, everything will be directly pushed by us. We also fixed a few things and such.

We achieved a wonderful synchronization for theming. Basically now the theme, the icon pack, and the font sync across apps: GTK, GTK+Libadwaita, QT, QT5, QT6, flatpaks that accept theming. So awesome!

But the best part is that we can now improve these packages and push updates automatically to all users. Stay tuned for the release! And thank you Roma for being such a good human. A true human being 😀. #tromlive

According to our Friendica instance, is the 7th Friendica instance in terms of total users, and the 3rd in terms of monthly active users.

That's great! We are only one and a half years old or so. We will continue to grow and overall Friendica gained almost double the users in the past year.

It is still a drop in the ocean, but adds to the big fediverse network. Happy to see that. Please join us! #tromlive

We are integrating a few things into the new TROMjaro release:

Our Trade-Free Library of apps. We are adding it as a webapp.

It is pinned to the apps-panel by default. Browse through some 650 trade-free apps. We have screenshots from TROMjaro, description, and an install button. Click it and install. As easy as that!

VideoNeat - fast access to hundreds and hundreds of quality documentaries and courses.

Click any magnet link and it opens by default with WebTorrent so you can stream everything directly from p2p. This one is also pinned to the apps-panel.

On top of this we are adding to the Documents folder a PDF about our Trade-Free initiative.

This is very important because TROMjaro is not just another distro, it is fueled by a "movement", an idea, that trade is the origin of most problems and we want to push it aside by providing trade-free goods and services. TROMjaro is one of these goods/services that we provide. If you are curious see the PDF here -


Behavior is Environment

The ruining of "free" and "donation".

Libadwaita still sucks and they have no reason to implement it

Our TROMnews Illustrations is back !! We gave up trying to pull an RSS from instagram accounts, and we do so from Twitter now. Luckily these accounts have twitter. This section is perhaps the most TROM relevant of all of the TROMnews section, as it represents important ideas and criticisms of this society, via illustrations. Very very powerful.

If you know more such artists let us know so we can add them to the mix!


What if we treated everyone like they were babies?

How small we are, how big our eyes are

TROMjaro 2022.07.07

Changing politicians is like changing hats to become smarter. We don't need new politicians, we need a different way of organizing our society, to move away from a trade-based society, to a trade-free society. #tromlive updates:

- We've added - a complete Trello trade-free alternative.
- We've added a simple and useful online sketch whiteboard. Draw together with others and share your drawings.
- We've added another one geared towards learning programming and creating animations.
- We moved to the original Do not worry, they are linked so it does not matter which one you use.

As you can see we are adding new trade-free services. Thanks to the people who donate to TROM. Now we have 27 trade-free services that are well maintained. So if you can, please donate to TROM here to keep these services alive and relevant, and add more in the future.

We will make some "info" pages for some of these newly added services, soon. Enjoy! #tromlive
