To be honest, since guix.gnu.org/blog/2019/joint-s I feel uncomfortable with .

What I've read there and on freesw.org/ puzzles me.

Looks like that finally replaced inside the is attacking the movement, now.

@Shamar Hi! I understand the bewilderment: I believe the Joint Statement has little to do with Guix itself and does not belong to the website. I'm not on the list myself and I can only be sure that Guix will go on, regardless of the statement. I hope this reassures you and does not deter you from using this wonderful program/concept/OS :)

@Shamar @ambrevar Yes, Guix is GPLed plot to bring power to open source and Google.

Excluding a holy cow for repeated abuse of his position is a lynch!

Not giving a community‑driven platform to assholes is a freedom of speech issue.

PS GNU Shephard is inspired by systemd.

In conclusion go to some antisystemd distro where toxicity and vitriol is protected freedom of speech.



Did you noticed your aggressive tone?

That's the usual approach of people supporting , like management (aka exploitation) of highly specialized work, and marginalization.

I have no time for you. 😘
