Nous devons peut-être opérer un changement progressif de mentalité du côté de nos exigences en termes d'outils numériques libres.

Gavés que nous sommes par le bric-à-brac high-tech tellement cool et si complaisamment fourni par les gafam, nous exigeons les mêmes facilités des outils libres.

C'est comme si nous exigions que les fruits bio soient d'un aussi bel aspect et aussi bon marché que ceux de l'agriculture industrielle.

Just adorable.
