Show me your favourite most beautifully ugly GUIs, From the clunky, to the bubbly and the weirdly overtextured.
Where’s the badass music player UI, the long forgotten Watched Too Much Hackers Linux desktop UI, the weird desktop buddies
the story behind the new default perceptual colormap for matplotlib is that MATLAB's new one, parula, is actually mathworks IP so they had to roll their own https://social.mecanis.me/media/ZjFpVlK_GeuuCxgBacM

My problems with Paradox's other games that weren't Victoria is that they felt too....abstract? They felt like pulling levers and rolling dice that never matched up with what happens. In Victoria, there's a grounding due to actual simulation of population with their needs, religions, etc.; by operating on them, I feel cause and effect, and that I'm doing something meaningful to a country and its people. It gives it a unique character.

Calling MySQL/MariaDB on the same level as Pg or MSSQL is something I can't take seriously from experience trying to write queries for MariaDB though. Ask a DBA smarter than me (like, all of them) and they'll likely give you the same answer.
@Miller_Geek @chr @oreolek MS SQL is a pretty good DB, you know? MySQL should have died with shared PHP hosting - its SQL implementation is quite sad to work in. I hear Pg is much nicer, but I've had the Pg DB for this mastodon server corrupt within the month I've been running it.
So I guess in my experience, the only DBs worth running at SQLite and MS SQL. (I've had it churn hard running SharePoint and it still keeps ticking even with power failures and heavy Lourdes.)
