This is why so-called “open-source” software isn’t necessarily FREE software.
Free software doesn’t just mean “zero-cost”. Free software is software which doesn’t impose restrictions on the end user.
Any web browser which restricts access to certain websites is not free software.
There are two types of restrictive software models. One is the proprietary “closed source” model which is made by corporate toadies who make such software to stoke their egos and control you. The other is the “open source” model which is made by elitist software developers to stoke their egos and control you.
I know some of you phony “open source” guys will just say “well why don’t you just download the source code and make it truly free?”
To you, I say this:
We are witnessing the death of the free software movement. One day, the Free Software Foundation will be taken over by supporters of restrictive software models, and Richard Stallman will be ousted.
Then we will see Mozilla switch from an open-soure model to a closed-source model and actively sue those who attempt to alter the Firefox source code and release Firefox derivatives.
Then we will see Google eliminate the open-source Chromium browser and sue those who attempt to make Google Chrome derivatives.
Then we will see Canonical make Ubuntu a closed-source operating system and actively sue those who make Ubuntu derivatives. So say goodbye to Ubuntu derivatives such as Peppermint OS and Linux Mint.
