Operating system discourse 

@bulkington I disagree. I'm a UX designer who can't code *at all*, but I pushed myself (and push others) to use Linux. Why? Because it's the only free operating system. It's harder to use, true, but it's the only way to actually have control of your computer(s) and not hand it over to some fucking capitalists who *will* sell you out for profit.

This is why it's important that Linux becomes easier to use and more accessible, because it should be part of a much larger push towards freedom, and alternative structures that can pull people out of the constant manipulation and abuse by corporations.

I think we'll see increasingly clear and well defined differences between the corporate web and community internet.

More and more tech created to be intrinsically anti-corporate & pro-community, as well as clear declarations of non-participation in corporate shenanigans.

I feel the original web is effectively dead, but that doesn't matter as long as we just carry on building things better in its place.
