GPU prices aren't a result of mining, they're a result of manufacturers fleecing cuz of the pandemic and them predicting a ton of people with disposable income will suddenly get into building PCs.
I bought a couple of decent modern GPUs for a few hundred each cuz I was building a computer right before the pandemic hit.

> The Anti-Capitalist Software License is a nonfree license because it extends the four freedoms only to some kinds of organizations, not to all. Such a restriction in a software license, in the name of any cause whatsoever, imposes too much power over users. Please don't use this license, and we urge you to avoid any software that has been released under it.

They're right. Make anyone an arbiter of acceptable and non-acceptable users and you have non-free software.

>The Anti-Capitalist Software License is a nonfree license because it extends the four freedoms only to some kinds of organizations,
As far as i know all the main gpl licenses are organization agnostic, so this is factually wrong.
Also freedoms apply to people not organizations. Corporations are not people.

There are gpl derivative licenses that do limit the use of their software by certain organizations, like there is one that bans military use and another that is limited to workers cooperatives. Those are not associated with the FSF though. I'm not sure if those violate the 4 freedoms or not, they might not be free software, i bet this can't be easily answered, because complicated legal stuff.

I don't want a laptop targeted at normies. I want a practical brick like the 701C. Everything about a 701C is better for working on it than a crapple. The keyboard feels better because it's the proper size and the keys travel further. The screen is a good size and it's in the same aspect ratio as our eyesight, you don't see in 16:9. The laptop is more solidly built and can be used as a weapon or a tool to smash windows.

You wouldn't go "my hammer is broken, but fixing it won't exactly put food on my table". You wouldn't go "I'm underpaid, but unionizing won't exactly put food on my table". Right? Right?

Free Software is not the product, it's means of production. On the financial side, you use them to do your work, and pocket the difference between their cost (zero) and the cost of proprietary licenses you'd otherwise have to buy. Exchange some of the money you saved into labor time for the software's maintenance and development, and you're still benefiting on net. But more importantly, you benefit because you genuinely control it, and no capitalist company can ever fuck you up by making arbitrary, unavoidable changes to its licensing or code.

Consoles have been doing this shit for literal decades, It was a matter of time.

Actually microsoft tried to do it in 2005 but abandoned it because public pressure, time to revive the idea.
