That's a very interesting project!
(and a little crazy 🤣)
I have to say that this is the FIRST time since 20 years I'm seriosly considering to leave Debian GNU/Linux for something else.
From a technical perspective, even just the fact that the Guix people are trying this makes it worthy of my respect.
On the other end this is very sad: https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2019/joint-statement-on-the-gnu-project/
In a way... 😒
I think I'll write something about this hegemony of totalitarian hypocrisy.
Now we all know that #OSS won.
And #GNU is full of the same kind of people.
#OpenSource is winning!
I want the right to a due process.
And if it's free... who care about #freedom?
Shamar, I think this tirade disqualifies you
It' s a delirious self pity
Due process is for condemniing people to jail
It' s not what happened
Stallmann alienated women from the GNU
What about due process for thse people ?
What aboth the missed support for the free siftware cause ?
You don' t see oppression where there is, and see oppression where there's not
@AbbieNormal @Shamar There's a cool question here too. Is RMS a man or is RMS a disabled man acting wrong because nobody made him act like it should?
I don't know.
I don't say he didn't hurt people, but also he has problems we are supposed to solve as a society, not just removing him from his position.
I think it's pretty easy.
If he did any crime, he should have been processed in a court.
And with him all people who haven't reported his crime: they were all accomplices.
Why everybody is happy about this? Because RMS do not belong to any of the minorities that populate the remorse of #US people.
It's a pity for the last line about millennials. I just think (and hope) that Selam Jie Gano was too young and politically naive to understand what she did. I think (and hope) she has been subtly but effectively manipulated.
I hope that, in the long run, she will understand this and rebel. She looks smart... so there is a little hope despite she being so immersed in US culture.
For the rest, I think Ebersol is quite right. Thanks for sharing!
@Ninjatrappeur Oh you are so fucked up Hahah
This post is really interesting too.
It's what happens when you don't embrace minimalism.
@Ninjatrappeur GCC isn't self-bootstrapable neither, yeah.
I think we went further and further in the complexity we lost the understanding of simplicity and reproducibility.
Projects like Mes are interesting because they remember us how much time we spent on adding complexity without worrying about its consequences.
The book was Chuck Moore's Programming a Problem-Oriented Language, https://forth.org/POL.pdf . It explains why Forth is the way it is, and guides the reader how to write their own. It is written in the context of the 70s-era computers, but remains just as applicable today. My #Kestrel3 project would be dead in the water without this book.
