    That’s a good reason to use an operating system that will never turn over control to a software vendor.

    I speak of gnu/linux, of course. Or any of the BSDs. Or any other unix variant. It’s true that there is a ton of proprietary software out there that won’t run on those, but it’s almost always from exploitative companies like Adobe who should be run out of business.

      u def know this already, but for windows/mac users reading: there are FOSS alternatives of like everything. im new to linux but i found okular is a good alt for acrobat and even supports digital signatures. and ive heard gimp can be altered to have the same layout as photoshop

        I’m having a real bear of a time finding a FLOSS animation program with tweening etc. that does not suck ass.

        Im too using gimp (even made a small tutorial for some folks) and okular ob my win10 laptop. Almost all of my laptop runs on open source programs (probably apart from some one or two pirated games). I’ll probably fully switch to debian next year.😅

        It’s so liberating using open source programs and os.😌
