Say what you will about RMS (and yes I'm aware of his more sinister sides), when it comes to the part that actually defines Free Software movement, the guy really does practice what he preaches.
He made a principle out of not using anything that runs proprietary software (including the BIOSes and firmwares), and not using anything that could infringe on the privacy. Even if it means inconvenience, he does not give the proprietary a fucking inch.
If we're going to choose another person to be the face of the Free Software movement, it has to be at least someone as principled and stubborn in their stand as RMS is. Does anyone know another person that would agree to live like this?
It's Free Software, goddammit, not Open Source.

Unbelievable! my WiFi was fine right when I start to torrent my ISP just say "Oh! we cant have that can we! (limits my bandwidth)" literally only for 2 sec and I have not torrented for 2 months! just fucking why?! I fucking hate ISP and the bullshit unfair control of the world especially at a time when we depend on them the most! 😠 We need to have a open source ISP where there main motto is to make it as privacy respectful and secure

My wife just told me that our child will find calm/comfort in what music we listen to out loud right now. Looks like I'll be lulling my child to this.
How long does your Linux desktop/laptop computer take to boot into desktop?
‼️NOTE: This is cold boot time, not waking up from hibernation. You may include Windows boot time only if you disabled "fast boot" as it uses hibernation.
- Subtract boot menu cooldown if it was included.
- Do 𝗡𝗢𝗧 answer according to "systemd-analyze".
- Use a chronometer (stopwatch) for true result.
- 𝗜𝗡𝗖𝗟𝗨𝗗𝗘 login screen time. I want to know the time it takes to get to your working environment. GUI or not.
There is nothing special about me.
Don't waste your time reading this - or do.
