This is what they think you will identify with... This is what they want others to think of you...

This is marginalization of our position in action.

This is what they think of you.

Hilarious. After effectively abandoning Linux desktop OSes by never updating the client, withholding massive new features, & dropping support for tons of formats, Dropbox is naming something “Nautilus,” the name of one of the most used Linux file managers.

Tech companies don't want to pay senior, knowledgeable engineers what they're worth so they claim they're over-qualified.

Which results in more of our tech being designed and implemented by people who are under-qualified without proper mentor-ship and industry-specific history lessons.

The entire industry has it's eyes closed as to the real cost of software. Right now, the consumers are paying for that cost through intangible side-effects which become tangible once democracy fails, cars crash…
