The debate gets interesting sometimes
  • Based on a super niche subset of chronically online youth - this applies to everyone. 🤪

  • The debate gets interesting sometimes
  • Definitely not on one of the most marginal, leftleaning comment boards that is lemmy

  • "We"? I'm not even from USA ... And I doubt many Lemmy commenters voted for biden in primaries.

    Put your big boy pants on and stop whining when people point out that you are wrong morally on a given issue.

    Sometimes life isn't fair 🥲😲

  • Mean-spirited comment. Downvoted... 🙄

  • Mainly UK and its derivatives... (USA, Canada, Australia 😄)

  • How is voting for a marginal unknown 3rd candidate going to upend the US electoral system, I'm so curious...

    Instead of dreaming look at the general population. How many people who vote do you think actually care about this. Sure they might not like the politicians but do they actually want to change the system? I don't think so.

  • Amusing to see commenters who think Biden primary voters are reading forums on Lemmy and are still venting their grudges 4 years later... 🤣

  • Electoral systems is a pretty nerdy topic (despite how important it is for who gets power), so it is not an issue the typical voter cares for. Therefore there is not enough political capital for such large reforms to be taken on by politicians.

  • That ship has sailed now bud. Now its trump or biden and that is what the meme is referring to.

  • The anti-AI sentiment in the free software communities is concerning.
  • They probably wouldn't be such a laughing stock if they were successful.

  • Its a good point but you can always have even lesa market share.

  • Don't tell me Linux mint would still be Linux mint without the a desktop environment like Cinnamon. An os is the collection of all the software not just the low level code.

  • Work on useful alternatives to big corpo crapware = lick the boot?

    Mkay...

  • "It happened once, therefore it follows that it will happen again" is confirmation bias

    You're right but realistically it will fail. The voices speaking against it are few and largely marginalised, with no money or power. There will probably be regulations but it will not go away.

  • The potential for damage is much higher

    Doubt it. Maybe Microsoft can fuck it up somehow but the tech is here to stay and will do massive good.

  • I guess we'll see. 😃 In any case I wouldn't want my Linux desktop to be 5 years behind if they do take off on other platforms.

  • The anti-AI sentiment in the free software communities is concerning.
  • You might argue that "private cloud" is privacy preserving

    I don't know since when "on device" means send it to a server. Come up with more straw men I didn't mention for you to defeat.

  • I agree. Openai have sold everything they supposedly stood for.

    Whenever AI is mentioned lots of people in the Linux space immediately react negatively. Creators like TheLinuxExperiment on YouTube always feel the need to add a disclaimer that "some people think AI is problematic" or something along those lines if an AI topic is discussed. I get that AI has many problems but at the same time the potential it has is immense, especially as an assistant on personal computers (just look at what "Apple Intelligence" seems to be capable of.) Gnome and other desktops need to start working on integrating FOSS AI models so that we don't become obsolete. Using an AI-less desktop may be akin to hand copying books after the printing press revolution. If you think of specific problems it is better to point them out and try think of solutions, not reject the technology as a whole.

    TLDR: A lot of ludite sentiments around AI in Linux community.
