freedom of choice on Nuxified.org
I wish the good people at Nuxified, who seem to care so much for the freedoms of others, would show some care for a fundamental right that is all too often forgotten.
The freedom of choice.
All to often, the term "freedom" is tossed into the faces users of Mac, Windows, BeOS etc, who are simply executing their right to choice.
If, Nuxified, was truly advocating, then there would no persecution, belittlement and harassment in the attitudes of Nuxified members. This is all to often seen in place like their IRC channel.
Nuxified.org has the potential to be a great site, to help people with choices, provide information on why some choices are better than others. However, at its stands, Nuxified.org seems to want to tell people of their _only_ choice.. This is a gross misunderstanding on how Nuxified can/could help people.
I am, for the record, a long time a free and open source developer and contributer. I have made both code contributions and monetary contributions to many projects. I am currently a GNOME foundation member.
It saddens me greatly to see people berate because their disagree with someone.
I don't expect my opinion to go down with the Nuxified.org members at all, infact, I almost expect this post to be deleted and my account locked. Why? Because I know that the attitude of most here is that there is not place for choice.
I urge Nuxified to become more user friendly, beating people into submission is not the right way to handle yourselves.
Remember, Freedom includes the right of choice.
P.S. Mac OS is released under an open source license. While it may not be the GPL, Apple executed their right to choose a license, which they did.
