How I see GPU brands:
- Team blue, Intel:
Oldschool autistic engineers, working GPU but not practical
- Team red, AMD:
Competitive but anarchist, horrid Windows drivers, but good on opensource, anti-mainstream
- Team green, nVidia:
Way too greedy cunts circlejerking each others off during breaks (like Apple employees), delivering on performance, but wayyy overpriced and scammy tactics6
*landing page: "state of the art". "look how many companies use this"
*6 months later: have some problems. discover github open issue that it can go into an unrecoverable state and every commenter migrated to competitor.2
Today is the day I contributed to the open source software for the first time.
It may not be a big thing for someone but for me it is.6
Most useless feature: an extension that did the exact same thing as an opensource extension so that the company could hide the code and not include licenses (???)
ps.: they obviously used open source frameworks and libraries

How about you say WHY you didn't?!
Reason for rejected pull request on hacktoberfest: "wrong commit message"
...are you fucking dumb or what?
damn robot machine clowns, you wonder why you don't get better at your craft
"we love open source, making it so prohibitively convoluted to participate!!! why won't anyone contribute to our repo?!?!?!"
clowns, absolutely everywhere i swear10
I hate the jitsi_meet package, so I decided to fix the bug myself instead of waiting for the code owner to fix it. I forked it and pulled requested the updates. All they have to do is review, test the updates and merge the code if there's no error.
And the fucking problem was wrong data type, old version of Kotlin was used, and was android embedding V1 instead of V2. Solved by a "little" adjustment of the code. I wonder do they test the code before publishing their packages?
For those who are stuck on the issue, you are welcome. Now you have the solution.

I'm trying to find OpenSource alternatives to anything creative I do.3
So for the past 2 weeks, i have been diving deep into the realm of open source software ever since I came across the idea of self-hosting. It is just crazy to discover the huge variety of open source self-hostable alternatives to proprietary software
I am completely blown away by the OSS community1
There's a simple issue with this opensource browser extension.. actually I think I can fix that real quick and submit a pu OH WAIT!!!
I booted to Windows partition and don't have any fucking dev tools/console/package manager to install what I need!3
Why open-source matters: I can remove annoyances like starting in front-facing mode from a smartphone camera software, and hide the button for the "effects" drawer that I never use since I can add Sepia or black/white in post processing should I ever need it.
Both of these annoyances cause missing moments. If the source code of the camera software is open, and if the operating system is rooted, these utter annoyances can be removed.
There are open-source third party applications like "Open Camera", but they lack quick launch support and might have, presumably due to lack of optimization, a two-second shutter lag. Big no.
Seriously Vlang is so cool . But it still in beta. Started to contribute. I will start building packages for the jitsi SDK after the VPM (package manager) is ready Because I want to try something.17
I wonder how many github issues have been closed by asking the author to implement the feature they've requested for. In the past, I was confident my issue will be resolved by opening a new one when there's no answer in earlier questions. I can't tell whether the nature of my questions advanced or whether it's a new trend. But I've opened maybe 4/5 issues in recent memory, and each time, the collaborators suggest the feature is one I should contribute to their project by implementing. Isn't this their job as maintainers? I'm already working on something that barely gives me breathing space. I encountered a challenge using your library, and your idea of helping is that I dissent from my own trajectory, acquaint with your project /how to implement what I want, wait for it to get merged etc, before continue what I originally intended. Do they think that's worth it?
Is it just me or is this a common occurrence, lately?22
Travis CI is so expensive for smaller developers.
I started using it when it was free for open source projects, but now they changed it, and the lowest tier ever is $69.
Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing service, which works exactly as described, but I only need to make like 5 builds a month, but the lowest tier gives me so much more allowance.
I wish they had a cheaper tier for less money. Now I gotta swap service and reconfigure a couple of projects.3
Any good open source project for biginner? Or where to find those? I tried to find some but realize projects both interesting and beginner-friendly are really rare.1
Was given 24 hours to come up with a payroll solution
opensource or develop one
any opensource resource to help ?7
