Free Software: Mainstream in Industry, What About Society
Great keynote by my president @kirschner at OW2con19, but the title is a little bit strange:
"Free Software: Mainstream in Industry, What About Society"
Where is Free Software mainstream in industry? What I can see is a software industry using #OpenSource Software to lock society into their proprietary services. That's all. Microsoft is most mainstream in the industry.🤔
Anyway, the talk is great! 👍 😀 #Foss
That's the key, man: it's Open Source, and not Free Software, who's winning the battle of industry, without any ethical implications. And, in this society of services, software's code availability is not enough.
Main point I wanted to make: companies/industry as users of software themselves benefit in many areas from #FreeSoftware. But many individual users in our society don't.
