OTOH, you are not the first to qualify as "absurd" the idea that everyone should be able to write software.
Again, I'm not attacking you in any way: I simply don't agree.
#FreeSoftware enable those who know.
Which is great!
Without Stallman there wouldn't be #Debian and without Debian I wouldn't know #Linux (and I wouldn't be a programmer either).
RMS and GNU made me possible! ;-)
But we need to move on: not just enable, but #innovate towards #simplicity and #teach.
