Funny, when it comes to fruits, vegetables, grains... food system activists are not fooled by glossy presentation, blemish-free fruit, uniform size and color, etc. We value the dirt on our carrots, the seasonal irregularity of supply, the telltale signs of work and origin. But when it comes to software platforms...

@Matt_Noyes but the mud on your carrots is artesanal mud, reflecting the labour and care of organic wholefood coop that produced it.

It's the same with software enthusiasts. "But I compiled my kernel with -momit-leaf-frame-pointer" or "my dot files are all in a self hosted gitea repository"
