help me /g/, i am confused. what is the purpose of open-source projects other than to pad one's resume and make one more employable?
>I want software that does X
>guess I'll write some
>if I make it open source maybe I'll find other people who want software that does X that'll send contributions, patches, bug reports...
>and even if I don't, why not, maybe it'll be useful to someone somewhere
then i must deal with users' complaints for software i have written solely for my own use. this is a waste of my time because if i do not respond to these complaints i will seem unprofessional, and this will negatively affect my public image.
Kind of the wikipedia type thing, people enjoy something so they work on it with others
Honestly though I think it's become a bit of a meme for finding a better job. A hr guy I was talking to at a company called their software "open source" and I called him out on not knowing what the fuck it meant. I asked him to describe their development process if it is open source and he couldn't do it.
Why is Edge so much fucking faster than Chrome? I have been using Chrome for Manx years but I just really wanna make the switch. It also scrolls much smoother.
What does /g/ think of Python?
I'd like to clear up some erroneous information about where I stand that is circulating on 4chan and perhaps elsewhere.
I have a low opinion of Gentoo GNU/Linux.
Gentoo is a GNU/Linux distribution, but its developers don't recognize this; they call it "Gentoo Linux". That means they are treating me and the GNU Project disresepectfully.
More importantly, Gentoo steers the user towards nonfree programs, which is why it is not one of our recognized free distros.
If this is actually Stallman, I'd like to recommend a book
Is this a good deal?
Went to track my amazon package, and then I see a picture of my house with the packages saying "Your package was delivered."
Wtf amazon? Why not take a picture of my dick instead? And can anyone confirm this who ordered a package recently?
Amazon's own carrier service (Amazon Logistics) usually takes a picture when the package is delivered. I guess it helps with "my package was stolen" disputes or just confirming it was delivered properly.
Why would amazon want a pic of ur dick theyd need a microscope lol
Is this Facebook's endgame?
I don't know about Facebook. But wechat is quickly becoming this in reality.
Add in this and this is worse then an episode of Black Mirror.
I'm unironically considering buying one. But for 70 bucks it seems too much.
What do you guys think?
Wanna buy this keyboard.
What do you think?
Can I fix this

I'm looking for good recommendations, brands and devices, concerning cellphones jammers. I'm looking for one to block any phone calls in my shop.

How is this legal? Am I bottlenecking somehow?
I'm on the Spectrum™. Are you?
I've got a 2006 17" Macbook pro with Intel Core Duo Processor and 2GB RAM. I'd install LXLE on it if Linux wasn't such a bitch to install on 2006 macbooks specifically due to the way their UEFI works. So, what should I do with this thing?
