FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.

Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.

It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.

@malin Well, there are still some people who believe that security through obscurity works, to which 'code should be hidden' is an essential part. Especially apple-fans who have no idea what source code even is (and all the implications) "closed source" is a feature.

@NickFreeman I suppose so, though I've never seen any who are expressly anti-FOSS. They just like what they have.
