Sometimes I wonder if freetards realize how stupid they look to normal people.
They have no sense of introspection.
I want you to picture a normie reading this page.

Is this supposed to convert anyone to free software zealotry?

It's hilariously out of touch. I love linux but freetards have hijacked it and shamed people with shit like this for long enough to scare off quite a few companies from supporting decent proprietary software on linux. They're the vegans of the tech world.

To be fair, it's not like freetards recommend these products and be out of touch for the sake of being out of touch.
If anything, it's just kinda sad that this is the only kinda stuff that you can get that isn't botnet.
And as Intel and AMD don't seem to want to open up their platform, it doesn't look like the situation is gonna get much better, at least when it comes to sticking to x86 and x86_64.

I'm personally not a fan, but it's a good Free Software project. Looks like a nice normie-desktop.

>the "VPN router" recommends HideMyAss
You should let them know how you feel about this so they can improve their documentation, uwu
https://www.thinkpenguin.com/contact

>unrelated items
most of them seem fairly related to me, and the site even tells you how they relate.

>shitty prebuilt desktop
It's the best one you can get right now that's libre (TALOS II isn't out yet).
Although I agree that they could have added more info, I think they wanted to keep this really simple, so as not to confuse people. That way it can be used in multiple ways. It can be a "How do I escape the botnet" guide. It can be a "I'm kinda normie, but I'm really scared about all this surveillance stuff. what are my options?" guide. It can be a "What do I buy my freetard relative for Christmas this year" guide.
Flexibility.

>unrelated items
By that I mean that they present stuff like the choice of plug for your power cord (which is an expected choice when purchasing the router), and the choice of VPN (which is also an expected choice for a "vpn router", although not mandatory) right alongside wifi dongles and ethernet switches, which are completely separate products and whose purchase has nothing to do with "customising" your router order.

I use the best tool for the job rather than blatantly supporting meme software for the sake of it being "free". That being said I have infinitely more respect for the BSD guys than the FSF though.

>>63623359
Why do freetards hate choice? Do they feel some existential threat when their software has to compete with better alternatives regardless of whether its proprietary? True freedom is allowing people to have and make their own choices, not holding a platform hostage and screeching like autistic retards.

Is Replicant any different than Lineage OS with no Google Services?

>> No.63624764

>>63624431
>"Replicant uses LineageOS's source code as a base. It is rebranded to provide the Replicant look and feel (wallpapers, logos) and parts of the code are reworked to remove anti-features that can spy on the user. Most importantly, Replicant does not include any of LineageOS's proprietary components (programs, libraries, firmwares) and instead provides free software replacements for some of these. The rest of the system is also adapted so that the free software replacements can run correctly."

As a freetard, thank you very much.
While going fully free is the ideal, it's much better that normies are introduced to and use GNU/Linux than continue to use Windows.
I don't know where you get the idea that Free Software advocates don't want anyone to join their special club, as that is most certainly not the case, but regardless, thank you for doing what you do.
