I really wish more people would be mindful of the difference between problems with capitalism and problems with plutocracy
Capitalism contains the seeds of its own destruction in the form of successful capitalists seeking to convert market power to plutocratic power. They don't want capitalism to continue because it poses risks to them; they want a veneer of capitalism but over which they can exert greater control
If we're not mindful of that, the end of capitalism comes by overt plutocracy. That's not an improvement.
@0PT41N Sometimes a distro just doesn't sit right with you. One good thing about Linux is if you try a distro and don't like it you can just try a different one since there are hundreds of options.
If Manjaro doesn't work for you that's perfectly fine. There are plenty of fish in the sea.
I just hate how they always add crap to a 💸 bill.

I’ve been thinking a lot about various creative reactions to the absurdity that we all carry supercomputers in our pocket but have to keep upgrading even to retain functionality because software gets worse and surveillance gets more pervasive
Things like low-power computing (Rpi and friends, microcomputers, retro computing, etc), some of the solarpunk stuff, the “smolnet” (Gopher and Gemini and the like), and so on seem to be interesting ways of highlighting that things could be other than they are
Is there an umbrella term for this? Is someone collecting projects that relate to “computing designed to work well even with low-performance/low-power gear”?
