    You're not supposed to trust it. It deserves constant scrutiny. You're completely misunderstanding what free software is.

    I don't "trust" anyone. I always read the source of the software I use and if it's too big to read or unavailable I just don't use it.

      good way to put it actually
      even in corners of the FOSS world that seem like really sleepy backwaters it's hard to do something malicious without it getting nooticed

        it's very difficult to get away with such shit and have any success when everything is open. they always get caught. there's always someone paying attention.

    What do you mean? They caught the malware because it was open source, do you think they would have caught it if it was closed source and didn't have thousands of eyes on the code?

      that's what these hardcore monkeys believe. they truly believe closed source software doesn't have this problem. their moronation is that extreme and profound.

      Do you mean you trust more closed source software? I really have a hard time grasping your moronic logic here.

        we all know that closed source equals spyware and selectively allowed malware

    You shouldn't. I used to help lead an open source project that had 1M+ downloads. There was no spyware involved, but we would 100% ban users we knew to say racist-ish things or even just those who we knew to extensively use a less PC fork of our project - us vs. them. I always voted against these actions, but we we made every decision collectively and trannies always outvoted me. I would enforce those decisions as well, albeit very very loosely.

      I'm one of those people! I take a look at what's changed, by who and why before applying them to our systems, though granted bunkers don't need some NPM cluster with trillions of dependencies, so some days per month is fine

    unironically if corporations like MS are going to use foss like xz then they should be required to pay the developer for the value it adds to their system, or devote some manpower to help maintain it.

      Not applicable since the vast majority of devs are cucked and use the MIT license.

        Capitalism is only needed for optimizing scarce, limited things. You can copy programs virtually infinitely. If everyone in the world suddenly had access to unlimited free corn because I grew it once, of course I'd let that happen.

          NOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU CAN'T DO THAT! WHAT ABOUT THE SHAREHOLDERINOS? YOU'LL DISRUPT BIG CORN ECONOMY

          In all seriousness and to complete your analogy, what's going to happen is that someone with more money than atoms will steal your corns and sell it as their own branding it "Corn 2" or something to make it look better.

            Gitlab has shareholders and publishes all of their source. Being a joint stock venture corporation isn't an excuse for incompetence.

    Why do you even care, on Windows they have access to all your files and you don't complain. With Linux you can at least minimize invigilation.

    The bug was corrected in mere days mainly because the source code was public.
    Do that with closed source software, moron.

      The first one. The bug was averted only because the source code was visible by anyone.
      No such things on closed source software.
