it's time for my favourite game, Windows or Capitalism, where we try to guess whether a statement applies to windows or capitalism

- it's obnoxiously expensive for no reason
- corporate monopolies allow the big companies to stamp out alternatives and present themselves as the only option, driving up prices to ridiculous levels
- you are constantly pressured to spend money. in fact, if you don't have money, you can't participate at all
- advertisements are a fundamental element of the system
- most people who have souls despise it, but remain complacent because "what are the alternatives? this is the way things are"
- the mere mention of the names of alternatives disgusts many people
- the people in charge don't give a shit about you

trick question!! all of these statements apply to windows AND capitalism!!!!!

originally i was just gonna write something like "windows is the capitalism of operating systems" but i decided to expand upon my Genious Thesis and look at me now, nobody dares challenge my intelelct

@lynnesbian why are people so eager to judge whether one has aSoul or not?

@Primo i was using soul as a shorthand for "experiences human emotions", i'm not actually religious :blobcatuwu:

@lynnesbian This is not making it better. Actually, this is making it worse.

If they don't experience human emotions what emotions do they experience?


Never understood what that means. Like, cat emotions?


@lynnesbian at first I thought you were talking about windows. Like glass covered wall holes. And I was really confused 🤷🏼‍♂️


Both are vastly improved when you commit theft/piracy

@lynnesbian this sounds an awful lot like All Software And Infrastructure

AMA about the time my teasm wasn't allowed a cloud-based Active Directory replica and we had to introduce Atlassian Crowd

@level2wizard none of it applies to linux or *BSD or mastodon or many other floss softwares :blobcatcoffee:

@lynnesbian you win this round, floss ><

*later, at the dentist*

you also win this round, floss
