For the longest time, many companies were able to get by with only releasing software for Windows and MacOS. For the very few that actually did, they often viewed Linux support as an optional “nice to have” feature and as such was often delegated to being a passion project for an underpaid/under appreciated developer. A majority of developers have made the choice to not support Linux and even worse, a small number of companies have intentionally introduced code into their software to make it hostile to users who attempt to run the software on Linux. Times are changing and this whole mindset of treating Linux as third class citizen must also change to reflect the evolution of technology… or they will quickly be left in the dust.
This website is a website that generally covers topics involving technology but something happened this afternoon that caused my blood to boil and I need to get this off my chest. Needless to say, this is not my normal sort of post. I was attending the City of North Miami Beach City Council Meeting with my grandmother and we both spoke out about the corrupt joke “Unsung Heros” event that the City of North Miami Beach hosted earlier this month. Instead of a event honoring true heros, this event was nothing more then a event honoring the Friends and Family of Commissioner Paule Villard, funded by the citizens of North Miami Beach.
