Imagine a world without opensource, and the only operating system that exists is Windows.

I seriously wonder: would I still be as excited about computers & tech? Would I have moved on and found another profession in life?

Thanks to everyone involved in opensource. I can't repeat this often enough ❤️

@fribbledom oh.. maybe 😅 I mean who really used OpenSource when e.g. Amiga was a thing? And still those machines kept my fascination and attention for years. And later Windows PC.


@bekopharm @fribbledom Well there were all those mail order lists of public domain, freeware and shareware disks, plus the demoscene, long before Windows.
