How do we make sure that the FOSS movement survives in the future?

How do we make sure that the FOSS movement survives in the future? People stated gating on rms and corporations have been getting involved more and more. This is not good..

      yeah but rms is the founder of all of this. Its his vision and leadership that brought us so far, would some random trannies and corpos really have our interests in mind?

        Of course not, never have. It's up to _us_. We aren't supposed to shun the responsibility, but carry it.

          But true FOSS advocates are outnumbered 1:1000 by people who dont know what that works really means. Loosing rms would mean that we loose a lot of influence in this movement. Distros which dont follow the redhat-standard(tm) are loosing support day by day in a literal sense. Software support is getting worse and worse on an supposedly open OS.

            Probably way more.

            They're just one man. Anyone can gain and use influence to drive their goals, it's how politics happen. Regular people get elected and do decisions and preach to masses.

            >Software support is getting worse and worse on an supposedly open OS.
            I'd argue it's never been easier to use Linux than it is now. It was true pain to get anything working in 2007

            If rms gets replaced by the opposition that would mean that the FOSS movement would change as a whole. GNU would have to separate from it, can you believe that?
            >I'd argue it's never been easier to use Linux than it is now.
            Yes its easy on a cookie cutter distro. If a distro does not follow the guidelines laid down by redhat some programs simply wont work. One of these issues would be the musl vs glibc debate. A lot of software is not distro cross-compatible, due to how corpos decide it should work.

      This is moronic.
      Having some centralisatiom is the reason BSDs are less corpocontrolled.

      You think randoms in their spare time can compete with google that is now in charge of linux security?

      OpenBSD refuses most new ppl (most new are subpar) and do not accept code they don't fully understand. Peer pressure only works when you run an open source software like linux is ran. And the ones that havr the most peer pressure are the corpos that can manipulate the masses.

        According to who? Is google the one now issuing out new versions of the linux Kernel?

        There's no "compete" on GPL'd code. All of Google's efforts are now yours.

          lol

          Japs are pedophiles with a fetish for white people and white little girls in particular. Don't pretend it's something else other than what it looks like.

          When Japs want to draw Japanese people, they draw them very differently (compare Pokemon's Ash to Misty, or Captain Tsubasa characters to those of any other show). And when they want to draw trannies, they draw them like pic related.

    Corporations and trannies only involve themselves in widespread public IT initiatives.
    To ensure the enduring survival of FOSS, you have to branch away from megacorps and big software. Go grassroots, go to hardware that doesn't run globohomosexual software, splinter off to a new internet that doesn't invite normies. It's in our best interest to keep out the trannies, the glowies, and the corporate wienersuckers. Open source doesn't mean open community, after all.

      Wish there were a truly open source reasonably performant FPGA

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Does it matter if the FPGA itself is open source, or just the software used to synthesize it?
        It's not like there's any truly open source CPUs available, so being able to design your own architecture and implement it on an FPGA is probably the closest you'll get at this point in time. I presume it's a lot less likely for there to be a backdoor on an FPGA as well, but once you start worrying about that kind of shit it's easy to fall down the rabbit hole of paranoia.

          It'd be really nice to be able to understand the physical properties of the fpga and to be able to make my own using some more outdated lithography processes where even a mere mortal can have something printed

    Modern software needs corpos to survive. It is too complicated to be developed by a bunch of enthusiasts. Unless you want to use a computer like RMS then you are out of luck.

      What's wrong with that? I'm running Trisquel myself, same distro RMS uses, everything works.

        Corporations are responsible for maintaining linux kernel itself as well as your hardware. Furthermore, if you actually use trisquel then you most likely don't do any important work on your computer (and probably at all). Getting software to do actual work, from engineering to media production, normally means that you do need software thats proprietary or at least heavily funded by big tech. Without corporations, linux would be on the same level as gnu hurd or maybe netbsd at the very best.

          Yes, so? That's the beauty of GPL they have to chip in if they want to use it, what's wrong with that?
          As long as it's open source it's fine.

          >Furthermore, if you actually use trisquel then you most likely don't do any important work on your computer (and probably at all).
          Nice propaganda, cuck. The only thing a distro like Trisquel can't do well is play AAA games. Everything else works OOTB. Yes I do use my computer for "important things". In fact I've found it was easier to set up everything and code on Trisquel than on some of the other distros, due to Ubuntu having more recent libraries.

          >Getting software to do actual work, from engineering to media production, normally means that you do need software thats proprietary or at least heavily funded by big tech.
          False.

          >Without corporations, linux would be on the same level as gnu hurd or maybe netbsd at the very best.
          False. Corporations flocked to Linux because it was better, not the other way around.

          You sound like some Pajeet codemonkey that got a Red Hat laptop with his first HB1 visa job and thinks he's some hot shit. You are a minimum wage bootlicker with delusions of self-importance.
