@neauoire how is the orca JS trigger (return key) supposed to work if the virtual machine is paused?

@neauoire @npisanti do either of you use the 'trigger' thing in orca-c? it looks like orca JS doesn't have it at all, or it was removed at some point. should I remove it from orca-c? it would simplify some stuff and free up keyboard shortcuts.

@neauoire nevermind, found it: ctrl+i. is there a list of these commands somewhere?

@neauoire does orca JS not have append mode anymore? pressing return doesn't seem to do anything

@neauoire the way alt+arrow in orca JS has to have ctrl+z pressed multiple times to undo is not desirable in orca-c, right? i didn't implement that facet of it in orca-c because it seems wrong.

@neauoire what's up with the new way the grid looks in orca JS? should orca-c be changed to look like that? or was it done just to save on drawing characters in javascript/browser?

Official update:

I was 75% mistaken on the part of the scare-dialog.

"Curation" overuse receives a neutral rating.

0% mistaken on the toggle switches. Screw toggle switches, man.

In a few years, people will describe me behind my back like:

"Don't bring up the topic of toggle switches on desktop GUIs around that guy... he gets angry"

Now that I'm mostly done lambasting elementaryOS, I'll say some good stuff:

They have put a lot of effort into practical usability. The defaults are all mostly good. Everything that it ships with actually works out of the box.

Also, I'm being serious when asking this question.

(Except for the toggle switches UI elements. That one really is just blind copying Apple's iOS.)

Can someone explain this stuff to me?

Linux FOSS people mock and deride Apple while simultaneously copying the bad parts of their user-hostile behavior.

Bonus achievement: using the word "curate" 6 times in a blog post about repackaging software.

I must not be understanding something here. What's the motivation to do this? I don't get it.

PGP/GPG is so janky. Someone sent me an encrypted email with a certain configuration and it causes Sylpheed and Kleopatra to both hang if I click on it. Sigh.

After 3 years of development in alpha, my shareware Slack and Discord chat client is now available to buy cancel.fm/ripcord/

Looking for suggestions for a general-purpose outline (vector) icon set for a desktop application. The icons need to read well at 96 DPI and small sizes. Paid/commercial offerings are fine.
