: I wish all join Mastodon.

@LPS @ademalsasa @uri_herrera @Nitrux_NX afaik Pop_OS has not Mastodon account. At least not according to their homepage.

@LPS you really got my point right, LPS. Hope Pop_OS will join Mastodon soon. Thanks.

@lioh @uri_herrera @Nitrux_NX

@LETRA I have no information regarding KDE neon yet. Have you?

@ademalsasa Hi, I don't have it, but I mentioned it because I think the official distribution of the second most used desktop environment in GNU/Linux deserved to be named before several others that appeared in your message.

@ademalsasa Anyway, it is surprising that many applications and Linux systems do not have or do not publish on their webpages their federative accounts but they do with Facebook or Twitter accounts. This is an attitude that is not very careful with the free ecosystem.

@LETRA to this concern, yes, that is why I take my time to make this post. Thank you, you helped me spread this awareness.

@ademalsasa this may be a dumb question but what does it mean for a distro to be on mastodon? Like an official acount?

@tuh thanks for your concern. It is just as my post says, at the moment I just want availability of them here regardless it is official or not. I wish by seeing this active post they will be interested to join Mastodon.


Sadly most of them are unoffical, bots or not maintained. :-(

@GeorgLehmann I am aware of that and I wish that changes when the real ones joined.

@Ahuka hello Ahuka, it is just as my post displays, the availability of them at Mastodon, regardless they are official or not. I wish more GNU/Linux distros join Mastodon soon.

@ademalsasa What does "join" mean here? I'm still very unclear on this. Does it mean having a client available?

@Ahuka like the post portrays, it means they have official accounts here, Ahuka.

@KuyKuy_Katrun apparently, there is official account. I am glad I found that.

@princessgentoo thanks, I cannot find any information about this on, however.


@ademalsasa @gentoo there is, not directly, kind of hidden, let me give you the proper link of the Gentoo org

@princessgentoo this is beautiful. Thanks for sharing this to me. Difficult to me to find it by myself.



Pop!_OS is easily my favorite distribution so far. It has the least bloatware and very obviously the most streamlined interface for developers.


There is also @fedora (don't have any toots :( ) and pretty active @fedoracz .

@DragonLich thanks, I joined immediately. I wish somebody capable take care the inactive one.

@fedora @fedoracz


@sesivany Do you know why there is no official channel for Fedora on Mastodon?

@DragonLich @ademalsasa
No one was interested in maintaining it.
I even once offered to set up a special Mastodon instance for #Fedora community with the domain, but also not enough interest.


Why do you think it should have one? I mean besides the extra marketing space and making a gesture to show how they support libre software

@wuwei Some are using mastodon/twitter as news feed. It's working on twitter why not having some bot to post these here too.
