Thanks so much to @wizard for translating my essay on why free software needs free tools into Chinese!


@mako Hey, let me take this opportunity to say I think about that essay (the English version) about once a week. It helps to remind me why some of my choices probably really do make sense, even if they're pretty inconvenient, and getting more inconvenient all the time thanks to network effects and hosting oligopolies.

@bremner It's really great to hear that it's been so helpful to you! Thanks for letting me know!
