@prologic@twtxt.net @lazarus@twtxt.net (#2eing7q) I would never call you ignorant. ;-D But #rms would take umbrage with your conflating open source and free software, I’d imagine. ‘…“open source” doesn’t fully convey the importance of the movement and the potential long-term social problems caused by proprietary software.
