All Proprietary Software is Now Suspect

Since Windows and the closed source development model is so easily pozzed by threat actors (both independent and government sponsored), is it time to move over to GNU/Linux or - dare I say - BSD, for serious work?

    Given the choice of a penguin, the devil, or a flag, I'll pick Windows. You're welcome to waste your time though.

      BSD, Linux, Haiku... I don't even care. So long as it's not Microwiener Winjeet or Applel CuckOS, I'm happy to use it.

            Nobody ported a new enough browser. Now it has a native browser that does the modern web. It's a 4MB download lol.

            Yep! That's the one.

            Imagine a modern browser in a 4MB download. With BeOS you don't have to imagine. It's blazing fast (for the stuff it works with).

            Based. It's fun and comfy AF. I still wouldn't daily it yet on hardware made in the past decade, but I try out the nightly images every few months and it's only getting better (albeit at an excruciatingly slow pace). I wish YellowTAB was still around, but hopefully Haiku will get to that level in my lifetime.

            based, I put it on an old Thinkpad

            only downside is there is ZERO 3D acceleration in the system whatsoever, unless you have an ancient-ass ATI card and run the 32-bit version and apply a patch, in which case you can get ancient OpenGL acceleration working

            they are working on Vulkan for amd for Haiku though, it should "naturally" just support most any Vulkan card's functions even without special manufacturer drivers, intel will apparently be the next target, novidea of course is not aimed to be supported

    Human maintainer mental vulnerability is an issue with open source. These are unpaid, permanent, positions. What if one goes rogue or gets minipulated like in this case?

    My solution is to be a janitor you must have sex and touch grass. but we know that ain't gonna happened so we can expect more "mental issues" absences and Chinese manipulation.

      What if maintainers are motivated by money instead of producing a good product? Do you want immigrant teenager rtail mentality running your software?

      There will be a big push to move "essential" projects into big companies even more than has been done already, or into foundations the big companies control.

      It will be resisted. Lots of people make shit because they use it themselves and have no real interest in giving their work to Microsoft.

        It won't. For every RMS there are thousands of homosexuals just one job offer away from throwing their so called """ideals""" overboard the second they smell any money no matter how little, no matter the conditions attached.

          That's why the GPL is a cuck license. Companies and even governments will end up trying to subvert a target maintainer, eventually resorting to extreme measures. Whereas with BSD they will just "steal" your code and leave you alone to be productive.

      It's common knowledge that his blog was hacked by a glowie over a decade ago. Since 99% of Stallman's online activity is restricted to his eMail client, he can't be fricked to care.

    Little reminder for you, homosexual. If you actually care about free software, free speech, internet anonymity and privacy, then Nazis should be the first people you oppose, as they hate those ideals. Stallman is a libertarian leftist btw, try to actually listen to him.
