Tulisan menarik dari Dahlan Iskan. Saya highlight yang menarik bagi saya.

Kita juga lagi sulit. Jangan salahkan Sri Mulyani. Kalau kita tidak gagal di bidang ekspor Sri Mulyani akan baik-baik saja. Kalau ambisi kita tidak berlebihan semua akan baik-baik saja. Tapi siapa mau all out menggalakkan ekspor? Politik, bagi mereka, lebih menggiurkan.

Iya, issue ini massive, banyak negara terkena massalah ini, banyak orang tidak tahu, banyak orang yang sama sekali ignorant, diberi fakta hanya bisa nyinyir dan counter dengan argumen bodoh. Ditambah lagi dengan kebencian yang sudah mengakar.

Alih-alih memahami apa yang ada, lebih suka menyalahkan apapun dan siapapun, karena menyalahkan itu lebih mudah daripada berpikir atau belajar.

💩🚀 Windows 95 in Electron. Runs on macOS, Linux, and Windows →

Found this project via the verge, i can run Windows 95 on my mac, it’s a bit nostalgic, you can see it screenshot below, i first run this windows 95 in about 1997, and still using it until 98, but i still remember my friend still using win95, until 2000, and using Windows 95 Plus! as its theme.

Because back in the day the space on the harddrive are very limited, i had 250MB worth of space, with windows 95 consuming around 120-ish MB, and the rest of it either for office, code (coding with pascal, assembly, c), files or music. windows 95

head out to this page to download the release on its github.
