    Remember when FOSS was about community-driven development, transparency, and empowering users? Now, it's where big players call the shots, where open-source becomes just another buzzword for corporate dominance.

    We need to keep questioning these moves. Are snaps really improving our experience, or are they a trojan horse for corporate control? We're trading our freedoms for convenience? As users and advocates of FOSS, we have a responsibility to push back against this encroachment, to demand transparency and user empowerment.

    So, next time you see that tempting snap package, think twice. Ask yourself if it’s a step forward for FOSS or just another signpost on the road to corporatization. Our community’s future depends on it.

      LXD 6.1 also fixes support for running virtual machines on hosts with more thna 64 CPU cores present... There was an "issue" with LCD that it couldn't start VMs on hosts with more thna 64 CPUs but is now resolved.
      Uhm, typoo??

          I assume you mean the fix for starting VMs on systems with > 64 CPUs? I took a look. Yes, the fix was committed in Incus a day before it was committed in LXD, and it was Stéphane Graber that authored the change.

            I'm pretty sure GP meant the core pinning load balancing feature.
