hot take(?): FOSS isn't more problematic than the rest of the tech industry, it's just more transparent

@red i kinda feel like maybe this is one of those instances where we have more control and say over how foss operates, so we focus all our criticism on it because it listens. whereas we all just accept that the capitalist software industry won't ever listen so we just do nothing about it

@shoofle yeah, i wonder if some people are left with the impression "everyone says foss is bad but i only occasionally hear that about corporate tech, sooo... "

i hope that people don't get the mistaken idea that corporate tech is Good Actually 😅

@red Thanks for asking ☺️ yep it’s okay

@red slightly warmer take: it goes to the fundamental reasons why foss is valuable as a guiding principle
