Happy new year! Here is what I have been reading so far
“Mozilla, the not-for-profit organization behind the popular Firefox browser, is always searching for ways to keep the lights on while developing and distributing a complex and sophisticated piece of software for the price of free.” – JC Torres
Love that quote. FWIW, I believe only a tiny percentage of Firefox users are “irked.”
Note: Countly seems to be confused with “open source” and “source available” due to their modified AGPLv3 license.
many codebases are large and complex, and so even expert programmers won’t automatically understand how to improve them substantially without a considerable amount of study. It’s likely that many people will need to be paid for that investment, not because they ideologically believe that software should be property, but because it takes up a huge amount of their time and effort that they won’t be able to apply elsewhere. - schoen
I haven’t watched the entire thing yet but a fellow sustainer, Devon Zuegel posted it in a private forum and found it thought-provoking.
Chris Lattner’s response to the hyperbole.
p.s. Just because I link to something doesn’t mean I necessarily endorse it. I just find it thought-provoking and/or interesting.
