== Warning: I am ranting, don’t mind me == Hello everyone!

I just wanted to warn you about something: do not trust the app Infogalatic, neither those reviews.

This makes me very angry against the fact there are so much alt-right people on this platform and they wanted to destroy the score of Wikipedia on AlternativeTo.net. I know this is very futile but, really what the hell is that?

They are saying that Wikipedia is full of left-wing conspiracy theories, and, at the same time they say that Wikipedia is governed by the CIA? I still wait for the satanist and illuminatis governing Wikipedia then!

Also, they pretend that Infogalactic is better than Wikipedia but the only thing I see is homophobic and racist people on this platform and in the content.

It is in the nature of all Nazis to attack everything that does not agree with their opinions, they believe they are the only owners of the absolute truth, like all extremists, be it political, flat-earthers or religious. They are generally ignorant, without their own criteria or self-esteem.

There’s no use arguing with alt-righters. They’re so far up their own asses about their little conspiracy theories that they mostly just stick to their own snowflake safe-spaces (4chan, 8chan, etc). There are legitimate concerns about Wikipedia’s liberal pro-capitalism stance but these people are just too far gone.

Yeah, you also have to mind that they don’t want to be factually correct or even scientifically reasonable.

They just want to think they’re smarter than others. And this usually works best with completely made up bullshit (if it’s not true, the actually smart people won’t know about it), which is ideally not trivially disprovable, although that’s seeing counterexamples all the time.

This is also why it’s usually really fucking dumb people that love these conspiracy theories. They don’t feel smarter than others very often.

“Libre software” means software that respects users’ freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software.

In particular, four freedoms define Free Software:

The freedom to run the program, for any purpose.

Placing restrictions on the use of Free Software, such as time ("30 days trial period", "license expires January 1st, 2004") purpose ("permission granted for research and non-commercial use", "may not be used for benchmarking") or geographic area ("must not be used in country X") makes a program non-free.

The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs.

Placing legal or practical restrictions on the comprehension or modification of a program, such as mandatory purchase of special licenses, signing of a Non-Disclosure-Agreement (NDA) or - for programming languages that have multiple forms or representation - making the preferred human way of comprehending and editing a program ("source code") inaccessible also makes it proprietary (non-free). Without the freedom to modify a program, people will remain at the mercy of a single vendor.

The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.

Software can be copied/distributed at virtually no cost. If you are not allowed to give a program to a person in need, that makes a program non-free. This can be done for a charge, if you so choose.

The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits.

Not everyone is an equally good programmer in all fields. Some people don't know how to program at all. This freedom allows those who do not have the time or skills to solve a problem to indirectly access the freedom to modify. This can be done for a charge.
