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.

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

@Primo

@lynnesbian
Never understood what that means. Like, cat emotions?

@Primo

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

@lynnesbian

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
