imagine if we didn't keep moving towards "you can only run software blessed by the creator of your hardware"
imagine if the creativity of home programmers in the 80s hadn't been mercilessly crushed in order to make Bill Fucking Gates more money
@tindall hah, yeah, which I think is kind of ironic given that Gates' commercial start was in selling a BASIC interpreter.
and "you can only run software that is blessed by you or someone you have delegated trust to" is a good and useful thing, so I think it's especially unfortunate that the underlying tech is primarily used to lock people to Microsoft's whims.
