I'm getting kinda sick of the narrative that FOSS is written exclusively by rich white men, for themselves and each other. And that FOSS is therefore inherently bad.
I mean, I understand that we're all tired of Hans from Stuttgart, but this narrative just erases so many fucking people. People who are neither, or none of these things.
Maybe stop shitting on their/our efforts trying to make something better than the abusive piles of shit companies churn out these days?
@spacekookie When I hear rich white man in an technological context, the last thing that comes to my mind is Free software. But I know a guy called Bill who created his firm on a fraud a few centuries back.
@spacekookie I hadn't heard that narrative; it sounds suspiciously like FUD from Microsoft or one of their ilk.
