It's not like handing over money suddenly makes something trustworthy, it just means you spent money on it.

BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY

But Bill, I didn't pay for VScode and is probably MS best software in years. Meanwhile, other paid MS software products fails all the time to a ton of people and corporations.

I trust open source operating systems because their code can can be scrutinized. I cannot scrutunize closed source Windows code so I don't trust Windows or Bill Gates. I trust Linux.

>despite not paying for it
B-b-b-but you told me that I do pay for it, Bill. You said that it was only free if my time was worthless, so I'm paying for it with my time.

>> No.71185703

But I paid for RHEL.

>> No.71187205

>>71185200
But did you scrutinize it yourself AND compiled everything yourself, including the compiler?
Otherwise you're replacing one obscurity with another obscurity, still relying on other people and still carelessly trusting.

Imagine using an operating system with known backdoors that go years without being patched.

In theory you could build a malicious compiler that discretely pipes all the output to a file to be sent to another machine without the user knowing

nigger, the compiler produces machine code. It can literally put pedo porn on your hello world to send you to jail, if it's programmed to do so.

Daily reminder: If something is free, the product is you.

>> No.71188609

>>71188590
Reminder that paying for something doesn't mean you aren't screwed over. See Microsoft and Apple.

>> No.71188639

>>71188036
In the same way, you can't trust your cpu to not execute malicious instructions when it detects a pattern.
So you either reinvent ~80 years of computer science advancements, or you kill yourself out of paranoia.

You get what you pay for (nothing)

If you don't pay for it, you're the product
