I'd rather use a buggy piece of crappy public software, than a smoothly polished private software (with ads and built-in spyware.)
But in my experience they're about equally buggy anyway.

We can do things together for once, instead of competing and trying to hoard more than everyone else?
Yeah I'm going to pick that option.

Regardless of personal preferences I find "haha, the thing you've created together as a community isn't as polished as the thing this trillion-dollar corporation lets me use" to be a weird flex, as they say.

@owl And when the private software breaks you can't fix it!

@IceWolf Yeah.
Or at least it takes way more effort to fix things, since you're not allowed to read the source.
And if you manage anyway, you can't distribute the fix, or upstream it.
