Topic: Blender or not defending free software?
just again is blender in the news with this time Apple joining for supporting and therefore again the question: Is this package and application for real supporting free software? Or is it just again the same open-source nonsense? Just to list the names:
Free or just the simulation? And please: No company on this planet help because it is supporting charity for the greater good. That's just marketing to purify the name and showing some kind of progression and sympathy. In the end: Open-source is the promise to do whatever, but not with returning all parts, opening firmware-blobs or interfaces and API-collections. Always stays something in the back. So "open-source" is just a false promise.
I don't think it would be helpful to integrate blender. With libreoffice, virt-manager (or comparable) and 0ad there should be an end so we could enter the BETA-test. Yes, same as with dbus that is no decision most people look out for, but better to do it now. Running behind services and applications just making foul compromises? And from my point of view: It is enough even now having problems with Github or YouTube for example. So don't tell me that companies having for real NOTHING to do with free and libre projects like Adobe supporting some kind of because they believe in that. A bad joke: They have always denied that concept and will do that also in the future. Better to just don't care about projects accepting this kind of "(foul) support". So for me stating: I won't include blender. If anybody else has interest, please do. But I won't include such a "care-package" and look for removing further unfree parts being even more chained into for every new version to come (I mean you CUDA). Something broken by design cannot be repaired, just forked and redone perhaps at some point, but this is not the responsibility of Hyperbola itself.
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!
