I'm tired of this idea that if you run Linux you should be able to use the terminal and you must be a developer or hacker. My dad happily uses Linux and he barely knows how to turn on a computer. Some non-techy people just like privacy and freedom.
@micahilbery Yeah I get those flashy stares when people glance at my monitor in town.
many years ago when I did tech support for a small isp we had a 70'ish yo granny who used dos on a 286 and would kermit into our server to read her email in pine. all she used the computer for was to talk to her grandson at college. since she was used to type-writers, the text-only terminal didn't scare her at all.
I don't think that #Linux (or #BSD or #Plan9) should be reserved to #hackers, but as an #hacker I think #FreeSoftware should foster #curiosity, so that people become hackers that no one can manipulate.
This is enjoying #freedom, to me.
