>refuses to use proprietary software
>absolutely loves proprietary hardware

/g/ logic
>>
thanks Karlie
>>
Are there other options for hardware?
>>
>>52406720
Build every single thing yourself. Monitors, CPUs, graphics cards, RAM, all of it. From scratch. Starting with mining the ore.

>not compiling your elements from source atoms
>>
>>52407775
I was trying to come up with something witty to go before what you said, but I'm coming up blank.
>>
>>52406699
I don't normally customize my hardware after purchasing it nor try to distribute modified copies, so I don't find it as big of an issue.
>>
>>52407775
>using closed source physics

To be truly free, one must be able to inspect and modify the basic laws of their universe
>>
>>52407822
> being constrained to the laws of the universe
Do you hate freedom, anon?
>>
>>52407863
But the universe is GPL licenced
>>
>>52407885
Pirate the universe.

>Not using an open source laws of physics to compile source atoms and distribute your open source hardware to the masses

Fucking botnet.
>>
>>52407822
Just use the API
>>
>>52407775
>not compiling your own atoms from FOS particles
>>
>>52407775
This, quantum mechanics uses an obfuscation technique known as the "Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle" and therefore it is nonfree.
>>
There is no open hardware for video, I don't think.

>doesn't understand the hypocrisy of being pedantic over proprietary software yet using a proprietary piece of hardware that more than likely has a hardware backdoor

/g/ ladies and gentleman.

>>52409806
¥HVH shill detected.
>>
>>52406699
People who love proprietary hardware on /g/ are consumer whores and /v/.

Anyways, even if you hate proprietary hardware, you don't have much of a choice in the matter, there is very little free as in freedom hardware.

Clockboy is that you? Can you solder my CPU for me?

Fucking plebs
>>
>>52410238
Sorry stallman not everyone can afford to be homeless and eat shit off their foot
>>
>>52410238
That is the typical idiot who browses /g/ these days, glad I only come back here for /dpt/
>>
>>52410278
It's almost impossible to avoid proprietary hardware of some form. Very little hardware is fully libre and the ones that are, are most likely reversed engineered.
