Sorry, it's 1998. If you want to listen to music on your computer, you have to hear a man say "it really whips the llama's ass" at least once, for some reason. Just normal computer stuff.

@philippemargery @61 @Purism Signal isn't "bad". In a nutshell:

OpenWhisperSystems / the devs behind Signal made the choice to centralize the service and build identity around the phone number system, instead of doing the federated / decentralized approach.
