I think it’s absurd putting free software against tech giants in the same field. One is for profit and can pay to innovate, the other consist of volunteers doing it (mostly) for free. It’s not like FOSS applications don’t want to innovate, it’s just that they can’t for the most part.
It’s equally absurd to demand things like “you should do research and development”, like who are you talking to in particular? The FOSS community is not an organization.
i’m aware and linked an article that talks about it https://www.marktarver.com/problems.html
but at the same time that is why proprietary software has such advantage, to be the first, to be the innovative, so people turn to them. When a FOSS alternative/clone is released, people are already hostage to the proprietary ecosystem. I am aware current society model is what fundamentally leads to this.
where do you got that quote from other than from yourself?
