Nope. You are fine. Not missing shit. Only plebs rave about how awesome it. The only thing it could possibly have going for it are privacy focused defaults (maybe?)

Funding is unfortunate but its why you don’t use permissive licenses. I do hope they figure that out and everyone pulls their weight.

Yeah the only people hanging back are gonna be H1B visa holders, who are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Yeah but good luck getting java to not exhaust all your fucking resources. Be sure to limit memory and limit it to specific cores or be prepared to have a non responsive server.

Didn’t say it was time consuming like it was bad. Its just what happens when you have to compile most programs in the OS. Just listing tradeoffs dude.

Also wasn’t the whole point of progress to make things better overall than to laude over people on how you had it worse?

Dont mean to victim blame but thats what you get for using windows. Its like asking why you got mauled and almost eaten by your illegally owned pet tiger. Tigers gonna tiger, windows gonna crash.

Partly cause people expect an exact Twitter which mastodon doesn’t really aim to be. Some people will enjoy the organic growth of connections others won’t. Plus lack of feature parity with twitter and the complications of a federated timeline and a local timeline. People in general dont have the patience to try and learn something new.

Not everyone has the savvy to git clone;make;make install either. If we want linux to be more common place we need something straightforward like flatpak or appimages. Most people just want apps to start reasonably fast to get work done and storage is cheap (or at least was getting cheaper) so they aren’t gonna care. It would also be easier in the phone space thats happening. Compiling on a pinephone sounds like a chore cause its not that powerful and how much battery would I use to do that? Its better to have a native package but better than nothing. For a power user it doesn’t matter, its not necessarily for us (even tho we could use it)

Copyleft is for art work and game assets and since they have no legal claim to distribute Metroid Prime assets they can’t release that. What they have here is the engine which would be released with a license.

Why is it on GitHub? I dunno dude.

I’ve heard some good things about Fedora. Its cutting edge enough to support all new hardware you wanna throw at it.

Tbh I have heard of people starting companies in the form of cooperatives where everyone including the CEO makes the same wages and all employees are involved in making future decisions of the company what what happens with the profits. So I do hope this style works out and I accounted for them in the remaining 1 in 5.

Imperialism bad, but pointing out the general hypocrisy in western media is worse right? The fact that this is a legit issue shows that the west is losing it’s moral high ground and is no longer being seen as the good guys, cause they ain’t. (There are no good guys just people looking out for their own interests)

Yes very soon one will be able to run windows apps better on Linux than on windows. Already the case with a lot of old apps and games.

Didn’t know lunduke did that. Fuck that guy!

I have an issue with the ethical open source license, this is irrespective of my stance on free software, which is being ethical is ambiguous, it depends on the reader or interpreter as to what ethical is.

For example I would consider being anti racist ethical but someone else could interpret being anti racist as racist ( or however they victimize themselves )

That ambiguity, that my stupid ass could come up with off the cuff, is why its a bad license to use.

The word minority has multiple definitions, to be clear refer to non white non straight people as minorities is ambiguous, they as a collective are a minority of the population and so so colloquially called minorities.

Could you elaborate with a reason or so for why they are wrong?

also use some of my spare time to update OpenStreetMap data in my area.

Can’t explain how needed this is. Google maps is hard to compete with cause its gained that initial momentum

And thanks for your contributions
