ITT software personalities who seem good on the surface, but are actually incredibly harmful
This fat fuck may have had his heart in the right place, but he's the reason why open source is such a mess today. Imagine if we were using BSD instead of Linux, clang instead of gcc, and the BSD license instead of that mockery of freedom known as the GPL. Everything would indeed, just werk. But instead we're stuck with... well, just look at the state of Linux today.

Yes, yes goyim. Use and develop BSD licensed software, so we can use your work in our proprietary software, sell them for a fortune, and give you back nothing.
- There weren't nearly as many problems with graphics cards five years ago
- Window managers and desktop environments weren't trying to look like smartphones
All in all, Linux was a smaller, more modular, and more manageable operating system.
But it has always been fundamentally flawed by design. BSD is just more sensible from the ground-up.
What is the picture all about? Stallman converted to sihkism (sihks are the only people in the world that tie their turban like that) with a bomb?
You should have put his hair into the turban in your photoshop. The reason that they always wear turbans is because they are forbidden in their religion to cut their hair so the turban is supposed to keep everything in place.
There are actually a few problems. The tendency towards tightly integrated do-everything kludgepiles (KDE, Gnome, systemd) is one of them. There's also Red Hat's ongoing sabotage and power plays. And the fashionable smartphone trend that everyone wants in on. And last but not least, the increasing blobs of firmware in hardware to the point of a second hidden OS, and in particular the extreme mostly-closed complexity of graphics cards.

What do you mean? Back then to get a performing video card you had to buy nvidia, just like now. And Intel's atoms had no linux driver then.
What's gotten worse?
