the great thing about open source is that instead of screaming into the void and then receiving bad features you never asked for, everything is broken but you shrug it off because no one has any money anyways
That's a drop in the bucket, admittedly. But we *need to* start talking about supporting #FLOSS. We rely on it every day, it's really not too much to ask to make a donation here and there.
#FLOSS should get better at this too, with doing crowdfunding for features, for example. But the devs are already damn busy, so... ;)
@sarahjeong Instead of everything being broken, expensive, and covered in ads, everything is broken, free, and written by broke freelancers in their off time.
@sarahjeong One nice, somewhat related, thing about open source is that OS devs are often writing these things for themselves first. Which means that it's user-centric development (although often with specific technical or domain-specific knowledge assumed on the part of the user).
