Spare a thought, in this difficult time, for our conservative politicians. It must be tough spending your life stumping for party that thinks government just gets in the way, that the market can solve the world's problems, that working people don't need health care or minimum wage, only to find out that when the chips are down none of that's true at all, that all this time what your money-god had sold you as justice and fairness was just shortsighted selfishness and cruelty.

With DX12 gaining traction on Linux thanks to Vulkan, it's only a matter of time before X11 on Linux gets transitioned to X12. The problem is that on Linux, X is not direct and therefore, you need to have a client and a server to run it. And that's not coded yet.

The whole marketing thing comes from minds crippled by capitalism. Because capitalism enables to sell poorly designed and low quality products. It doesn't work for free software because you're not tricking someone to give money.
A focus on quality and design is enough, making the open source ecosystem *so good* that it's a dumb idea to use anything else. And we're closer to this point than we may think. Quality has improved greatly, but still not enough...

The newest meme is "Linux needs marketing". How about we design and polish our shit first, before marketing anything. There is a *whole fucking bunch* of people who have tried Linux and switched back because something didn't work out or was crap. The people who are willing to put up with Linux' BS are already using it. Wanting more adoption while not caring about retention is counter productive. Once you lose people who were one interested, it's very hard to get them back.

So how does things work? Once the pandemic is over, do we go back to overproducing, over-consuming, polluting what we can and being general dicks to each other? Please give directions on how to act in the aftermath.
