Self-hoster/FOSS Pronouns: He/Him
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)
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)
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.
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?)
