While at it, could we consider moving beyond Free Software? I’m increasingly convinced that it is a dead end we wasted decades on. GNU/Linux is used everywhere, yet it gives users exactly zero leverage. Having access to those mountains of code is no gain, it’s almost useless.

What we need is software that users can rely on, that will act in their best interest rather than monetize them behind their backs. Clearly, Free Software failed to define ethical aspects of software, and we now know why. So maybe is the right answer.
