@Unairedspecifics @distrotube if free as in :beer: means "here is a drink from the tap made from ingredients and in a place that you do not need to know". Most other things given this way is deemed condescending. It is definitely not kindness nor sharing.


@nergal @distrotube Darren Kitchen from Hak5 used that way of describing the software he showed,
"Free as in beer" was the monetary price
"Free as in speech" was the way code was availible.

@Unairedspecifics never did search for the meaning of those phrases. They sound so American. Most countries have expensive beer and are only just reducing lawsuits for libel and removing fear of "blashpemy". Tokkō is still a thing in various nations with highly religious and political partisanship. @distrotube

@Unairedspecifics need to work on my toot response ethics. Must be annoying sending everything to other people when topics change.
