about student deals in software:
i'm almost done with my diploma and worked for years in #c4d. After i'm done with uni, i have to subscribe to #maxon or years of my work is basically locked up. They own the key to my porfolio. At the beginning of my studies i thought "oh thats nice, students don't have to pay for the app" but now i'm realizing that it is a cruel and unethical practice. You should always be able to access your own work. #foss #opensource #smalltech #capitalism #blender
