Love this statement from @eylul:

"I literally stopped gaming because I didn't want to switch back."

@equidorks Neither do I mean specifically. I like it when people (or companies even) are choosing free over non-interoperable, closed, problematic software (or hardware, for the matter), because the see the huge win over a little loss of entertainment. That's exactly how I entered the space as well a decade ago.

@CyReVolt I suspect most people would rather die than have even the slightest loss of entertainment

@equidorks Psst, you've uncovered the media industry's abusive business model.

@equidorks
It only isn't abuse in case of informed consent, knowing about alternatives and not being made believe by the industry that there's no alternative.
@CyReVolt

@equidorks @regines It's not about force, is it? They run advertisement campaigns. We talk to people. They are in the supply chains. We are at the bottom. That's about it.

@CyReVolt and why would anyone want to head towards the bottom

@equidorks The idea of "heading towards" is the problem here.
