In the past 3 years I successfully transitioned from an open source focused Linux tech career to photojournalist (after spending 20 years in tech doing sysadmin and security shit). Now I use a MacBook and a couple cameras and that's it. I can't believe I wasted so much goddamn time drinking the cool aid about free software and richard marx stallman. Will never need to compile another kernel again or deal with open source bullshit. so long /g/ some day you'll realize there's more important shit in life than gimping yourself with co-called free as in fag software.

You get paid to republish corporate press releases as news stories, fuck off.

It took you 23 years to discover different tools serve different purposes?

Yikes. Hope I never have to maintain any shit you cooked up, anon.

can't you be a photo journalist using Linux?

Most hardcore FOSS advocates insist the only tools you should use are FOSS ones, they don’t acknowledge macOS or even windows as a tool to be used but instead something to avoid at all cost even if it means using an inferior tool for the job

Linux will still run the world, even if you decided to be a photojournalist artist that "decides" to be "proud" of having to pay whatever "innovative" pricing Adobetrash & Appletrash & Wacom (...) decides on this year.

Also, I don't believe for a second you were ever good with Linux. Imagine having the freedom to actually control your computer and considering this "gimping yourself", then switching to a very dependent low-tier brainlet career and calling this "freedom".

Yes, well, you're dealing with the most complex machines operated by man at a technical level (because you're part of the crew actually running them / extending their functions / ...), and you seriously think you shouldn't be required to be good at it at some level? Wat?

All you'd have decided by changing to photojournalist is indeed to no longer do this work. Might as well decide to be proud of now only operating a simple Linux terminal at a fast food chain.

> supposed to make computers accesable
It's supposed to make a lot of software work smoothly in parallel on the same hardware, probably on a lot of computers if you're a sysadmin.

Yea, it's comparatively simple to what you're indirectly dealing with indirectly either way, but not actually stupid simple. Unless you weren't doing much.

20 years on Linux and you didn't even consider that as a possibility? whew

Did you also buy a bad dragon via Amazon prime and sat on the package on arrival?
You only have yourself to blame for gimping on free software
