To get this to work on Windows you need to have the official drivers installed and make sure that the official goXLR app isn't running. Some sections of the UI still need some #a11y work, but the mic setup, mixer and rooting pages are all working really well. #noxp

Content warning: missing quote tweets
You're right, it's a glaring absence, but it's not a new absence, and it's not going to change. Eugen is Mastodon's BDFL, and he's not going to add quote tweets. I know it's frustrating when you're so accustomed to that interaction pattern, but getting snarky and annoyed is not gonna help your argument.
Your reasoning about why quote tweets should be a standard feature, and how screenshotting a post is basically the same so why make it harder, and how it's not always for dunking, sometimes it's friendly or contextual, is not new to the discussion. Please, if you're going to weigh in, read up on the history first, and maybe read this more recent analysis from @graue.
If you desperately need quote tweets, try another #fediverse hub like Misskey or Fedibird. You'll still be able to keep up with Masto buddies, and you can quote-tweet to your heart's content!

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to.Mastodon
