    This is suprisingly level headed. But the problem goes away the moment social media giants go away. The problem with the internet are the monopolies. Once you don’t have monopolies the free market can function. Censorship ceases to be a problem when a single platform doesn’t dominate the conversation.



  • Linux gaming would not be exploding the way it is without Valve.

    Sometime around the time when Windows 8 came out, Valve realized that Microsoft wanted to take over their business. No more Steam store, all games go through the Windows Appstore. As a result Vale has been suporting open source and Linux to prepare for the inevitable showdown with Microsoft.

    Valve is not a charity for the benefit of open source and Linux gaming. It’s just business.
