I repeat, people represent themselves, not their nationality and not even the culture of a country, because every person is different, so evaluating individuality is the only sensible thing. Because you know nothing about that person ...
    Individuals are different, larger groups of individuals of identical origin exhibit rather uniform behavioural tendencies.

    For example: I can claim with certainty that all that high-tech stuff Taliban looted after US left is gonna be just junk year or two into future. Including many Western weapons. Because they are culturally rather indifferent towards maintenance ("If Allah wills it, infernal machine will work") as a rule and its cultural baggage. AKM works without maintenance, M4 past certain point, not.
    Same with aircraft, vehicles and so forth.

    Same patterns apply to everyone. There might be some bright individuals but social mores will define majority.
    When majority thinks corruption is acceptable then that country/culture remains poor shithole to live in - because mentality of the very people prevents economic efficiency.

    There's are reasons why protestant countries led industrial revolution. And why Islamic nations publish very little in the way of scientific papers..

    What I told you wasn't generalization but simple observed fact. When people of x country don't have certain cultural attitude against low-level corruption and particular brand of working ethics, said country WILL STAY POOR indefinitely.

    Want example, compare Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania against Russia, Belorussia and Ukraine. They started from the same spot back in 1990. First three are Finnic then two Balto-Slavic nations (religion-wise: atheist, Lutheran, Lutheran) who chose fighting the corruption and oriented themselves to West. Last three are pure Slavic (religion-wise: Eastern Orthodox) and continue with widespread corruption, oligarchy and robber-capitalism-kleptocracy style of government. ALL are 100% white and last three are pretty much where they were back in 1990, excepting for their respective capital cities. Read as, "everything not bolted to the ground gets stolen" and everybody from simple peasant to high government official think corruption is just fine fact of life. "You get nice position, you are supposed to fill your pockets and support your relatives too".

    ALL are as close to 100% white as can get. You still think race plays huge factor here? Or perhaps it's caused by a) cultural, b) sociopolitical factors?

    You can call it discrimination or prejudice if you don't like racism, but the concept doesn't change.

    Fucking hate the instant labeling - "you are racist" - the moment you disagree with someone. Grow the fuck up. There are cultural differences between countries and as politically incorrect it is, colored countries usually have some fucking bs going on, be it dictators, widespread corruption or just extreme poverty caused by either. It's just sociopolitical development phase they haven't gotten out of yet. And might never get out of, depending on cultural background. Adult would need to accept it as facts of life.
    It happens with white countries as well - just look at some former Soviet puppet states or Russia itself but it's far more rare. And where you have extreme poverty you'll get people who can NOT afford to be passionate about anything but survival. Just stating facts doesn't make you racist even if it runs foul with your innate feeling of political correctness.

    You are just being racist towards the citizens of one nation, which I inform you are not all the same, as they are not in any country.

    On the one hand we have the makers of X-Plane saying OpenGL is a dead end (which it is at this point), and concentrating on Vulkan/Metal going forward. On the other we have AMD hiring for OpenGL development in their drivers, to support OpenGL for current and legacy software that will likely never be updated for the new APIs. Both news blurbs in the same day.

    "I think this country has a poor economy" RACIST "I think this country has some pollution concerns" RACIST

    I advise you get off twitter and see a therapist.

    The problem with these doctors is, they don't really care about being doctors, they're not passionate. They became doctors out of desperation.
    The same is true for Indian programmers, the majority of them are just desperate to get our of their country. They don't actually care about their profession. It's a sad reality, but it's demonstrably the truth.
    India is not a good country to outsource things to, no country is a good country for industry when nobody wants to live there. India is revenged by severe pollution, corruption and poverty, you're only going to find desperate people there.
    Of course that's not to say you can't find passionate people in India, it's just a far lower statistic. Remember corporations are machines, they don't care about individuals, they care about profit, end of.

    Why ? What problem do you have with the Indians? An engineer is good or bad regardless of nationality!

    However, I am happy for this choice and I wish the newcomers good work.

I think there are standalone colord configurators as well (?). I am that guy who writes the config files by hand, but the GUI tools definitely exist for this, could you tell us all what's wrong with them?

    There's also driconf, which AFAIK can force some of the stuff you're talking about on a per-application or global basis.
