I have been following It’s FOSS website and blog since I started my Linux journey, later Mastodon channel and then recently joined the forum. It was very helpful which led me to be as experienced as I’m right now in Linux. I really appreciate your effort promoting FOSS software which helps both people who thought “Linux is for coders, not me” and people who develop free software.
Unfortunately, this was the first article from It’s FOSS that have ever made me disappointed, which I have never expected from it
It’s easy to say that you just wrote what Linus said, but it gives the readers the impression that you support and are pro vaccination. It’s your choice, your freedom of speech, but keep in mind that by doing so you are hurting people like me.
Yes, right. But it’s also right that you added this:
Linus Torvalds is furious again, and this time, again for a good reason.
How the hell is it a good reason? Note that you just did not write what he said, but also added your flavor to it, (mis)leading people in an unrelated field.
I doon’t support what Linus promoted in an unrelated forum either. He shouldn’t have promoted vaccines, at least in a Linux discussion. I can’t ask him anything as he is out of my range, but I can ask it here, please don’t promote/support stuff that you have no idea about but just by believing what commercial shit thrown on you.
I personally like and follow (till now) your articles. Please don’t make me add “not anymore”. Your efforts on promoting FOSS is more than just great, but please limit yourself to it, not in political opinions.
This was the first disappointing article and I hope it will remain the only.
Thanks for reading (and considering if so).
