I'm sorry, but this corporation is simply evil. I used to have a policy that anyone I knew could ask me anything they wanted about Free Software and I would help them. I got taken advantage of a lot and many people grabbed the "free beer" from the "loser" and chucked it the minute the got paid or found warez or something.

So I stopped.

When Vista was released, I got a job scrubbing toilets and when theyt asked me to come clean spyware off their PCs I said, "I don't do windoze."

When systemd discussion devolved into ad hominems and mud slinging, I attempted to quietly retreat off of the Trisquel boards and Social Media so I could lick my wounds and try to figure out how to install Hyperbola in the privacy of my own grief.

But selfishness and retreat isn't the answer either. I feel this burning rage that I'm simply not big enough or strong enough to contain any more. I don't know what the answer is, but I think a lot of us are here on Raddle because we're trying to find out and we need to say something a bit bigger than:


I don't like it. I always wait in line for a real person. I don't even know how to use a self-checker.

the apathy from most people is what really blows. I'm so sick of ignorant windows users mocking me for using linux. "lol what's that shitty fake operating system? just buy windows"
