I said that changes to major operating system or official websites related
to it, should not be made based on an opinion of an individual, that the
appropriate body should be the decision maker, not the individual. I said
that the individual (in this case you) should merely take it up for
discussion as you did. Nothing wrong there, in fact, my reply was not
directed at you, nor was it discussing your actions, which were correct,
until this reply of yours. Your reply was not "cordial." Please do not put
words in my mouth as I have neither suggested nor implied that your
opinions are "worthless."
Sure. I sympathize with your issues. It's long, painful road. I'm glad
you're doing that work.

Did you ask? The answer is simple: Pre-built tools/binaries are used to
build the source. Microsoft does not understand that we need *everything*
to be built from source. It's not easy to teach them how-to-opensource.
I've recently met one of the Microsoft guys working on .NET, and he does
understand these things, it's just a matter of getting everyone else to
understand. Microsoft isn't a monolith, as much as many people pretend that
And I've been there with a language bootstrap, so I sympathize. After all,
I have been helping Igor Gnatenko with Rust for almost a year now. We just
finally managed to make it to the home stretch and start integrating Rust
packages into Fedora proper.
> But one of the reasons I am part of Fedora is to advance FOSS
And one of the reasons I desperately feel like running as far away from
Fedora as possible is the "FLOSS-Extremism" and the hate of anything anyhow
related to closed source, Microsoft, etc... http://rhea-ayase.eu/articles/
I despise closed source software for personal reasons. I don't
particularly hate Microsoft, though I greatly dislike Windows as a
platform. But I work for a company that makes closed source software, and I
champion open source where I can, and try to be friendly to bring new
people to our communities.
But being principled (which is what I consider myself as) is not the same
as being extremist. I am not threatening hate and violence unto you for
working on this stuff.
Personally, I don't think you're using that term right, and you're not
going to make friends by calling people that.
