I'd hit that

>> No.71180797

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

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.

Never underestimate autism and free time. Saviors of humanity

There is no such thing as the "Linux operating system".

Don't be a pragmatic retard, nobody cares about your political distros.

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.

>> No.71185216

>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

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.

>> No.71187214

Wew lad, that's like paying for those bootleg cartridges while fully knowing they're fakes.

Except I get enterprise support

/thread sage

I did.

No you didn't.

nigger how can a compiler turn something into spyware

>he trusts windows update with all his files
>he hosts servers on windows then gets surprised at downtime and data loss from automatic forced shutdowns
>he trusts bitlocker after FBI forcibly shut down Truecrypt, extorted the developers, and replaced their site with an ad for bitlocker

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

>> No.71188028

so when micoshaft products shit on your day its like having two dicks in your ass and you paid for it to happen

>> No.71188030

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

>> No.71188036


Should be required reading for all computer security professionals

>> No.71188064

>he interacts with human beings and trust them, despite deceiful/harmful behavior being in their very nature

>> No.71188511

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.

>> No.71188532

yes i did

>> No.71188590

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

>> No.71188609

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

>> No.71188639

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.

>> No.71188645


>> No.71188651

Daily corollary to daily reminder: you're the product, whether or not you pay.

>> No.71188674

You get what you pay for (nothing)

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

As the common saying goes: Time is money (you only use Linux if your time isn't worth anything)

>> No.71188699

Serves literal malware ads.

>> No.71188909

But everyone pirates windows. Pirating is free.

>> No.71188923

Can't believe some people don't use adblockers. I literally can't recall the last time I saw an ad on pc or phone.

I don't pay for Windows too.

>> No.71191272

This. Lots of people pay for Windows 10, it still spies on you.

>> No.71191296

I've never paid for any operating system though, Bill
