share Don’t be one of those people


I wish very badly that Linux had a culture of shareware and small indie devs like Mac does. An obsessive commitment to everything being F(L)OSS does not necessarily result in good software.

Both Part 1 and Part 2 spoke to me. I try to be fairly careful when I say “I prefer foo for reasons X and Y” but it never seems to stop being annoying when people try to declare that “bar is better and foo sucks” for whatever reason. I often joke that often people aren’t arguing on technical reasons, but instead hold deeply religious beliefs for their choice in tech. If they were arguing purely on technical reasons then they wouldn’t be trying to convert me to their religion now would they . . .

I do expect at some point I’ll spend more time migrating away from the Apple ecosystem since there are quite a few things I prefer in a Linux environment.
