This is why I regard Freedom to Modify as below Freedom to Distribute (though above Freedom to Sell). That said, I *have* occasionally needed to fix something broken in someone else's software, or download a patch to do so, and the more freedom the better.

i agree yes.

to a point tho anon, I do think people should be allowed to but the likelihood is moreso there vs some faggot on /g/ saying "it doesn't respect my freedoms!" no one cares about those at all, if that's true, stop wearing the clothes, or stop playing the video games you play, stop doing basically everything you do cause they more than likely also have patents on everything you like that you're not allowed to take apart and learn how they work. see my point?

Installing normal arch on it's own to use as a desktop is retarded and a waste of time when tm there are many different arch based distros to chose from. Minimal arch is only useful for people making their own distro based on arch.

Windows is ok. However, I genuinely find Linux more convenient. It might just be me being more used to Linux, but I like that I can just pull down the source for i3-gaps, compile it, spend 5 minutes tweaking my config and instantly have a great looking window manager.
