"The world's unfair, kiddo" is not an argument for "then allow unfairness", but instead is an argument for "Then make the world *FAIR*"

Tom Waits has a new song out, it's a cover of an Italian Anti Fascist song

It is hard for me to overstate this. My very favorite band of all time who has tried to stay apolitical since 1985 has released a song yesterday, on September the Eleventh, 2018, and it is, well, a good song.

I'm excited to one day use but I really hope remote desktop solutions get massively better on ... XRDP is neat but still so complicated just to get into an existing session; X11VNC is good but I still have issues with characters repeating crashing it.

My problem is I want to learn _both_ ...

I have limited coding experience, mainly in javascript/node, and python (but not django/etc). Also C++ and Java via school, but I haven't used them for projects.
