We are releasing a new and different TROMJaro and we need people to test it. We want to give up Gnome and move to XFCE. Read more about it here https://www.tromjaro.com/tromjaro-xfce-alpha/ where you can also find the test ISO.

Basically it looks similar to the TROMjaro Gnome, but should be much faster, well built, has global menus, HUD, and more awesome stuff. Please give it a try and tell us what you think! #tromlive

Yes it is, in a sense, a customized Manjaro. We push this trade-free idea and ship the OS with packages that are "trade-free", plus install as default such packages. On top of that we have our own library trade-free apps https://www.tromjaro.com/apps/ that anyone can install directly from our website. We d a lot of tweaks to make the desktop faster and more usable.
okay, trade-free and free software licensing practices do seem compatible, which was what my first question would have been. I only concluded that though based on applications listed as trade-free, not from the particular phrasing of the definition itself.
Yes. Trade-Free would mean you provide your software and ask nothing in return. No money, not user data, you inject no ads into your software (so no attention trading), and so forth. You simply provide and expect nothing in return.
There are some historic examples of such human societies functioning in this way. One of the best documented examples would be the Haudenosaune.
Never heard of it, I'll have a look. Thanks.
I should be more clear. My initial thought is that some might choose to define the GPL, where one receives software on the promissory expectation of offering it to others under the same freedoms you had received as a kind of trade, in consideration. Hence why I was wondering if the two were compatible.
We understand that, but we can't be so strict about the trade-free idea else we won't find much software out there that's trade-free. Licenses do add a limitation (a trade) to those who want to modify the software, such as you mentioned. Some ask you to give credit to the source project if you fork it, and so forth. I'd like to see these licenses being dropped and simply allow anyone use the software as they wish, although I fully understand it can be abused by corporations especially. But our "movement" is more about the "educational" aspect of it. Plus, we can filter out a lot of crapware, freeware, and the like, via this trade-free label.
indeed, and this is also why I was trying to determine if what I am doing meets the definition of trade-free since I do use the GPL.
I suspect free software, in the purest sense, is perhaps one of the few places genuine trade-free exists, other than where indigenous peoples still do thrive.

We increased the storage quota from 300MB to 500MB for https://office.trom.tf . TROM Office is a complete alternative to Google Docs. 500MB means thousands of documents that can be stored with TROM Office. #tromlive

Love it :)
TROM can't sell any kind of merch, because they're against trade. This is such a clever way for anyone to be a part of this project and support them, without trading of course ;)

Our latest TROM-Cast about Nudity is up https://link.trom.tf/fE2wF

Unfortunately we got a lot of issues. First that of sound. I forgot that I messed around with OBS these past days and I removed the input sound module for my computer from OBS. So I had to fix it live....then the connection to @Cleo of Topless Topics was not that great via Jitsi. I suspect is because the Jitsi instance we have used was hosted closer to us than to her, so her video quality was not that great + she interrupted a bunch of times. We did lots of tromcasts with people from all around the world but the connection was never as bad.

Lastly our live interrupted 2 times....and I have to investigate why. I have no clue at the moment. Maybe Peertube is too buggy when it comes to lives. I will test the live before our next TROMcast. Luckily I have recorded everything locally so all is saved.

Give it a bit of time to convert so you can stream it properTHank you to @Cleo of Topless Topics for participating! Very interesting discussion!

Ok, that makes more sense. Would be nice if you could automate this though, so that it'll automatically shorten links before posting on Facebook/twitter so you don't have to do them here 🤔
I wish that would be the case but right now idk how i can do that

We are testing a new version of TROMjaro, one geared for low spec computers, to put some life into them. Instead of Gnome we are using XFCE. We are testing the waters to see if we can maintain 2 version of TROMjaro. We made it look very similar to the main TROMjaro.

You can grab the ISO from here and give it a try https://link.trom.tf/Ev7ZZB8J

Feedback is appreciated! #tromlive

21st Century Mythologies

Art historian Professor Richard Clay explores how Mythologies, written in 1957 by French philosopher Roland Barthes, laid bare the myth-making at the heart of popular culture. Now, following in Barthes’s footsteps, Richard Clay dissects some of the everyday myths we still take for granted in the 21st century, revealing the hidden meanings in everything from money, Wi-Fi and race to the Madonna.

"Until the Great Depression of the 1930s, holders of dollars could in theory trade in their cash for gold stored in the US federal vaults. In 1971, US President Richard Nixon unlinked the dollar to gold, turning it into a fiat currency. At the time an ounce of gold was worth $35. Today, the price is $1,920.80."💁‍♂️

Our files.trom.tf is fully encrypted since 2 or so months ago. Now all of your files cannot be read/watched by anyone except you. Not even us who own the server, cannot do that. We can only see your hosted files’ names, and their metadata (when it was uploaded/edited, or what is the size of your file), plus we can see the structure of your folders. However we are unable to open any file to see its contents: videos, documents, photos, you name it, we are unable to preview any of these files even if we wanted to.

So take advantage of that! 5GB of free storage + Only Office included + more. Read more about it here https://trom.tf/files/

COVID 19 killed some 4.6 million people for the past 2 years. Air Pollution kills 7 million people each year. Both are important, but you do not see much attention given to the air pollution as a "killer".

We have removed over 100 accounts from our videos.trom.tf like we have said. These accounts did not fit to our thematic: science/technology/activism. All of the users were notified beforehand about the removal. We freed-up some 150GB of disk space and got rid of a ton of crazy videos. #tromlive

Psychedelics – the new psychiatric craze! - https://joannamoncrieff.com/2021/09/02/psychedelics-the-new-psychiatric-craze/ - Very good article by Joanna Moncrieff, who was one of our TROMcast guests. It is important to understand the human behavior, but we need to be as scientific as possible about it. #tromlive
