Some thoughts on recent #Linux elitism (not sure elitism is the right word, but I can't think of a better one right now) I heard on Late Night Linux. ☹️
Daily reminder that for many blind people, #Apple is the most useful and productive mobile operating system. It's not that Android is hard to use, but when text selection, especially on the web and in email, is from hard to impossible, and when one cannot spell check what they've written, and typing is either a minor annoyance (braille (input not registering sometimes) onscreen keyboard (very slow usually) external keyboard (yet another device to manage)), you begin to understand why people who don't enjoy customization, or getting the "most" out of a device choose iOS, especially for accessibility, and the AI of image recognition and such. And FOSS phones, like the PinePhone, won't be accessible until Orca/ATSPI can communicate with touch screens, and that won't happen without developers.
So, when you get that urge to say "I told you so you Apple sheeple, you should have been using FOSS!" Try to remember that some people don't have much of a choice.
Battlefield 1 runs *a lot* better than I expected it to on #lutris
well that is a welcome surprise
A teenage New Yorker trying to be as optimistic as possible. I like Linux, FOSS, gaming, and sometimes attempting to code.
