    To me the open source movement never about "free and whatever Stallman does".
    Did you mean Stallperson ? Stallman is *not* inclusive.

      I think kernel people are not going far enough.

      Instead of just changing words, they should banish "master / slave" (or its 2020 politically correct inclusive wording) architecture entirely from the kernel.
      No kernel subsystem should control another, no matter how you call it. All subsystems should be created equal and cooperate on free will with no one subsystem dictating what another should do. This is unacceptable in 2020.

        What you're proposing sounds a lot like MS-DOS.

            Not good enough, I demand a full renaming of all existing APIs and breaking of decades old APIs!
            I don't care how many applications, corporations or end-users will be affected or how many millions or billions it will cost!

              Also, gotta love a post being upset about using inclusive terms while using words like bullcrap and turds to be polite. Aren't people like y'all supposed to be against euphemisms and coddling? Why aren't you saying bullshit and shit? What kind of mental gymnastics do you have to do to coddle bullshit while allowing master and slave to be A1 OK?
              Yes. A fantastic read. "Linux is done", "the end of Western civilization", "fascism", people are "returning to Windows". So cool - and all because some naming conventions might change.

                So basically Linux is next in line for SJWs to turn into a dumpster fire. Good to know so I can make an escape plan.

                  Hitler referred to himself as leader and had others call him that I way as well.

                    On contrare. Windows has plenty of politics. Its just none that bother you. Steadfastly supporting any police state that will do business with them is their politics. That's just not a priority for you. You Just let us know what your real priorities are.

                    edit: Just to imagine, these are the people that call other people "snowflakes", because a few terms on changed.

                      Wow. They actually codified that ridiculousness. Virtue signaling at its worst
