today in "people don't get free software":
"I think the reality distortion thing with open sourcing both commercial things and personal projects in general is too high expectations for what it means in practise, and perhaps too little of what it means in principle."
@ekaitz_zarraga you see, when you ask someone to open source the software for their instrument, it's basically just like asking for free labor from the community,
@ekaitz_zarraga yeah lol
this is why everything in music tech still requires, like, ancient Mac OS or whatever
@tindall It's not the same when the community is asking a company to release the software than when a company releases software and forgets about it leaving the responsibility of updating in the community.
In any case, this is a very opensourcey and not that much of freesoftwary approach.
@tindall somebody was comparing recently FLOSS to right to repair, and I've never heard something so apt.
