I want Linux on the desktop to grow, become easier, and welcome new users. I'm not into gatekeeping.
@vkc most of us do, sadly the whole community isn't onboard with it, a part of it wants to make it hard so that only a selected "intelectual elite" may use linux
thankfully those people are all bark and no bite
@ultramagnus_tcv @vkc true, but still there are echoes of elitism on the foss community and capacitists pricks
not only they do not help, they turn people way from using linux, and rn we need as much people as possible using it, bcz it increases the chance to find bugs, or finding supporters and donors
@vkc with as much as I use things like google drive via a browser I'm not sure I would personally have any issues going to linux on a laptop full time. There are some edge software things I still need my windows box for but not many anymore
I want this too. But I want to make sure the Free Software ideas grow with it.
Otherwise I fear people will just use proprietary software on Linux, and that it will lose its capacity to make people realize Free Software is actually an alternative.
This is why if I install Linux for someone I make sure to give them a word on the subject.
