Hello @codeberg, this is a special gratitude for your awesome service. I am a satisfied user.
Hello Dr Roy @schestowitz, thanks, you are the inspiration of this article.
With respect to everyone,
Let's help people quit #Github and find a good code hosting.

Let me share with you.
To everybody involved in this discussion about @codeberg, thank you very much. I found many new friends here!
What is your Codeberg account? Mine is here https://codeberg.org/Malsasa.
@ademalsasa I added mine to my profile, and I also followed you on Codeberg 😉
@cosminh wow, I didn't expect somebody will do that. Thank you very much!
@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo @schestowitz @codeberg @ademalsasa @syntax I've run my own gitlab instance for many years, but it soon outgrown me and the number of projects I needed to host on it. You need a really powerfull server and maintain it very good together with a good backup strategy. I'm very open to ethical alternatives or gitlab hosters that do not grind my wallet.
@der_On one good news came from the @fsf as they planned to make an ethical code hosting alternative: https://www.fsf.org/blogs/sysadmin/coming-soon-a-new-site-for-fully-free-collaboration.
"... (FSF) is planning to launch a public code hosting and collaboration platform ("forge"), to launch in 2020. "
@VOBE hello, VOBE. For similar cases I handled up to this day, I helped people I meet to get Kubuntu https://www.kubuntu.org and install it onto the laptop. It is a non-Microsoft modern friendly system with Android phone integration. I often recommend Kubuntu to my students and non-techies. I wish you luck and success.
@VOBE @ademalsasa @codeberg @schestowitz Do you need the operating system to be entirely free/open-source or are you okay with some proprietary (no source code, black box) software.
If you want an entirely #FreeSoftware OS, things like Wi-Fi might not work.
In other words, do you need full freedom or convenience more?
Convenience I think as everything has to work
Going to download libre instead of office
@VOBE Then Kubuntu would be a good choice.
@NylaWoethief Thank you
@codeberg nice share, Codeberg. Let me help convey it to people.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
