Am I missing something or do two cloud computing services, two database systems, and a search engine have nothing to do with a game engine? Cuz this looks like a false equivalency whataboutism two-for-one combo to me.

It's a random list for sure, but vendor lock-in can also be a problem for companies hosting their stuff in the cloud in a similar manner to what's happening with unity.

The one thing you can count on Godot users for is that they act exactly like Arch Linux users.

People are free to continue using proprietary software, but you can't then continue to complain when they inevitably do another shitty thing in the name of profit.

No wonder people are promoting FOSS, what else do you want to happen? I really don't get why people are so hostile to FOSS, it's literally for your own long-term benefit. How many more projects have to enshittify before people get it?

I am not complaining about FOSS, or even saying its bad. I am saying the people that look at FOSS as if it was their god are annoying. The people that just cannot shut up and have to shove it in your face. The people that start conversations with "I use Arch" or "Godot is the best." Thats what I am talking about.

People are passionate about FOSS, that is not a bad thing. What is your excuse for complaining about other peoples way of expressing their passion? Is that your passion, to spread a little more negativity in the world?

I think that's because the software comes from a similar place. You have to fight for your freedom and it takes effort, and the people that put that effort in like to feel good about it by sharing (or showing off). It's like gym-goers who like to show their hard-earned progress.

And then there's the fundamental differences in core philosophy, where a lot of friction between open and closed source projects comes in. It's warranted, but I get why it's annoying.

Look, I might have switched to Godot if all the people recommending it weren't so annoying about it. Effort or not, the vast majority of those people did not contribute to the software, so it wasn't even their fight. They just adopted a weird oppression fetish into their personality and decided to make FOSS into their god.

If someone was wronged by "Big GameDev" or whatever and developed their own FOSS replacement, then good on them, I am happy to listen about it. But the large majority of these users didn't do that, but act like they did. Just be normal, please. Being so overly annoying about it isn't going to attract more people, existing users being annoying are going to push away potential new users.

You're just as annoying as the people preaching Godot. Surely you see that.

This meme is stupid. FOSS versions of all that crap also exist.

[–] [email protected] -1 points 10 months ago

Yeah but are you using it or are you using the closed source options?

AWS and Azure are services, not libraries; Elasticsearch is mostly open source; and DynamoDB, well, how many people use it again?

AWS and Azure are services

A lot of people seem really confused by this, based on the number of downvotes.

Amazon Web Services

I don't think people know what AWS means, it's literally in the name.
