When you’re literally their customer and they still feel the need to make you the product.

I know, right? I actually work at a store that makes their customers the product as well. They actually sold data about me to Facebook…

It’s like Microsoft charging for Windows yet making it one of the most invasive operating systems out there. Plain ol’ greed.

No kidding. It sucks that it’s so popular. What can you do, though?

We’ve never needed to focus more on Linux desktop development than now.

I’m not sure. Windows coming preinstalled on PC’s has a huge effect on market share. There are very few devices that are ever sold with Linux preinstalled.

It’ll always be great to see more desktop development, but I’m not sure if it’s the best solution out there, but I suppose it might be the best we have. Only, it’s going to take forever to get to where we’d like to be.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that there might be a faster way to the top, especially if you consider the popularity of Chromebooks.

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
