Yes, and if you keep up with free software development, you will know that Java use has always (and still is) frowned upon and it's only chosen as a last resort for corporate open source apps and projects like Keycloak, etc.
Java is just barely tolerated because OpenJDK (GPLed) is extremely popular compared to Oracle's Java. If there is a GPL compiler for Rust that becomes the defacto standard, then Rust will also be accepted more than it is now.

brief observations on fires
>1:Once a substance is ignited it cant be set on fire again

>2:fires spread based off their temperature, the hotter a region is the faster the fire spreads


>3:Objects will increase in mass after being set on fire


>4:an unbreathable smell will be created after an object is set on fire


>5: fires are observed to die when covered with something with alot of mass even if it is flammable


hypothesis
>1a: the reason why you cant set a burnt object on fire again is because the substance has already reacted with its environment in a matter that it cant produce an exothermic reaction again

>evidence: when I put an ignited match in water 5 times the fire on the match went out 100% of the time and couldnt be ignited again

>The story is told of something Heraclitus said to some strangers who wanted to come visit him. Having arrived, the saw him warming himself at a stove. Surprised, they stood there in consternation – above all because he encouraged them, the astounded ones, and called to them to come in, with the words, “For here too the gods are present.”

>But he had himself withdrawn into the temple of Artemis in order to play knucklebones with the children; here, the Ephesians stood around him, and he said to them: “What are you gaping at, you scoundrels? Or is it not better to do this than to work with you on behalf of the city?”

I don't buy that an object has more mass after expelling clouds of smoke. I can buy that many objects will be denser, i.e. have more mass per unit of volume, but this will not be true for all objects.

I don't think your statements about what human beings can breathe and smell are correct. We breathe and smell a lot of things.

I recommend reading Notes From The Holocene by Dorion Sagan, I think you'd like it.

Does the failure of Linux desktop prove that communism will never work?

feels like a barely functioning toy compare to the commercial options. they argue over irrelevant differences, constantly reinvent the wheel, never innovate, barely handles the basics.

it has no profit motive to unite or to sort boring problems.

free software existing at all is a huge achievement but the industry as a whole is one of the worst.

developers sharing between themselves isn't any different than scientists sharing their data. how moral does a scientist become once the work they've done, with good intentions, only exists for corporate control and rent seeking? Many will go into the scientific field for the good of humanity but without influence of the wider systems that control their achievements their work can be hijacked for questionable good.

the hackers that brought linux where it is, did so for user control and freedom, instead it exists now only as free labour for the same spyware, locked bootloader, addict design tech.

the soviets failed, free software failed, the left is failing. all of which seem to have similar issues. seems to me working out why is whats needed.

Beware the macfag. They have the worst slave morality I have ever seen.

They want their master to be the only master.
They fear and distrust developers, and will only relate to them though a ridged neoliberal marketplace of fetishized ratings.

They'd chop their own fucking legs off, if it ensured nobody else had freedom to move around.

follow up.

in my opinion the community is too afraid to make choices on behalf of the user. people want to go down beaten paths, they would prefer a UI designed to be used a certain way, than a configurable free for all that tries to please everyone.

free software should be able to do this better than apple, if they make any mistakes in what to cut the community can add it back for themselves.

I think developers perspective gets distorted by the community which are in no way a representation of the populace.

I'm reminded of orwells quote about the left “One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, ‘Nature Cure’ quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.”

the arch/antix user has very little in common with the average user but is very opinionated on it and will become the loudest voice. it cant be easy for a developer to make something that would suit a hypothetical normal user when they've got an existing group of weirdos supporting them.

I think the gnome foundations tries the best to do this but makes a lot of odd choices in doing so. It needs to test its ideas a lot more than it does but its nice to see them attempting innovation and a sleek design.

>Choices on behalf of the user
Yes some choices are very, dare I say, stupid. There's a popular meme about linux UI/freetard graphic design and etc. I would say arrogance too, detachment from what users actually desire, mixed with a degree of narcissism "I'm gonna make my own le-arch-forkerinOS" instead of contributing to something already great

You can get that with one fiber-optics cable. In principle they just need to bond a led on both ends of a fiber optical strand and put a signal converter chip on both ends of the cable to make it compatible with electrical ports. Eventually it could become cheap enough to stuff chips into cables, especial if the led and signal converter are integrate into one tiny piece of silicon, and you do something clever with the fact that microchip circuits are affected by light.

Democracy is voting to make decisions, elections have always been oligarchic in nature. You're operating on a misinformed definition of democracy that stems from an Orwellian inversion of meaning peddled by aristocrats in the late 18th century. Aristotle outlines clearly in his Politics that the people who actually invented democracy considered sortition to be democratic while elections have a tendency to select for people who are already in the upper levels of society.
