there's a middle ground between "Linux as a personality" and " it doesn't matter at all who controls the future of computing". be careful not to react against one so hard that you slide right into the other.

@tindall my main beef is that both of these extremes ignore the orthogonal issue where operating systems and source code aren't really important to fixing the power dynamics that make today's computing bad

@scanlime yeah this is very true, but I think being committed to either extreme generally precludes nuanced discussion about those issues

@tindall totally agree. for real though "the future of computing" should just be a follow-the-money exercise starting with silicon refineries and cheap labor.
