Re: Sharing information: About being believable!
You know that projects like Libreboot are important, because they have brought more free hardware and possibilities. But nowadays it is more important to have "more": More systems supported, more popularity to be made. Instead of having Libreboot as project there will be more or less just a name and switch left. The project will be merged together with osboot and now it is finally clear why Leah did those harsh and not needed steps by throwing all the rest of the team out: https://libreboot.org/news/libreboot202 … oot-merger
In the end it was always a decision about "more": Taking a step backward in freedom after this release making free software a switch rather than being the absolute default. For about not being believable. Leah Rowe could have easily brought her project "osboot" further without doing that step and leaving the project Libreboot as it is, including the democratic structure of the project. All in all is no longer there and there is no reasoning about being pragmatic like "Look, there is just another fresh release!". Yes, there is and this does meaning what for the future? Nothing at all. We should stop with embracing illusions and nice dreamcastles to be built. This was and is only a decision to bring "osboot" into and leaving Libreboot without any further meaning. A decision about capitalistic ideas also, for "more" modern machines being sold and not machines being really free. The same stuff Purism is telling, with a slight different taste at all (https://forums.hyperbola.info/viewtopic.php?id=276). But if people want to believe in those marketing-stuff? Free culture, free soft- and hardware does need more but for sure not those lies. Besides: I won't mention environment and climate further as our global human society seems to have learned nothing. Have fun with it, but well just a sidenote: There is no "deal" or "compromise" to be made with any part of nature.
Certainly anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices: For a life of every being full with peace and kindness, including diversity and freedom. Capitalism is destroying our minds, the planet itself and the universe in the end!
