"hate the system" lol. Yes, alternatives are a good thing.
Thank you! Although it should have been evident
It's no point blaming companies and their greediness. Their publicists are everywhere, pushing sales in the name of modernity and security and trapping people into a world of proprietary formats. It's often our choice us to push back ... or not.
What really turns me off is the abundance of disguised "infomercials". I'd like to see the origin of the information or "advice" and how the giver will be benefited, stated upfront. This is standard practice in some financial matters in which the advisor has to make clear just how he will benefit if the advice is taken.
Right, because innovation happens so often when war or profit isn't involved, right? We've totally advanced so much in recent years all for the benefit of humanity, not profit. Damn these greedy corporations trying to milk us left, right and center, if only they gave something back to the world, like amazing software, new innovations, or maybe even just donations to charity? Nope, they do none of those, they just take our money and laugh!
This thread has turned from praise to Mozilla for advancing with the times, into a FOSS hippie fest. I think the last time I felt like "hating the machine" I was 14 and rebelling, it's laughable, though it does remind me of this: -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAYL5H46QnQ-
