The Linux kernel is great. That's because Linus was kernel Hitler.
He enforced strict meritocratic principles and prevented bullshit from getting in. There was no point in forking the kernel because it fucking worked.
But outside of the kernel? Weimar Linux.
The (((distros))) subverted Linux. They are the opposite of meritocracy. Literally. These organizations make money off of "support" - in other words, when their shit doesn't work! They built a hundred slightly different ways of doing the same thing, ultimately with the same results.
If they cared at all about software quality and simplicity, they would have coordinated and merged their package repos years ago instead of introducing more pointless duplication and fragmentation. They wouldn't have waited to support bundled applications so when you install something with 100 dependencies, it wouldn't break all your shit. Aren't we taught in CS that global references are bad because of this? Why doesn't it apply to Linux distros?
Hmm...being expected to work without being rewarded competitively or through monopolistic institutions who are so rich they can afford to donate worker time. And constantly being told you are free when it turns out you're just free to do more work. Man, that sure sounds familiar.
The Linux community has too many self-important marxist faggots who care more about doing things their specific way than being at all concerned with the fact that their OSes are so brittle they had to invent container technology to deal with it. What the community needs is a strong, pragmatic leader who will organize open source OS against the greedy, backdoored monoliths. And with Microsoft, Google, and Apple getting closer to being broken up by the day, it's time.
After Weimar Linux falls, OS Hitler will rise. And he will use a BSD license.
