    Phoronix: The Fedora Project's One Sentence Vision

    Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller recently talked about his vision for the Fedora Project over the next decade and it to become an "operating system factory", among other advancements he hopes to see out of the project in the 2020s. A one-sentence vision for Fedora is now drafted as their vision statement...

          It's nice I guess? It's also very generic and marketing-y.

            Except,... it sounds a bit like socialism. Though, socialism isn't based on bad idea, it is prone to issues caused by humans selfishness accompanied by guarantees that certain things are granted for sure/free no matter what,.. Capitalism is also prone to humans issues,..

              What are you talking about? This has nothing to do with economic systems. They just said they want to promote free software use and inclusive communities.

                  Everything nice and feels-good has the appearance of communism and socialism when you get down to it.

                  But if y'all are really upset about :

                  The Fedora Project envisions a world where everyone benefits from free and open source software built by inclusive, welcoming, and open-minded communities.
                  as opposed to:

                  The Fedora Project envisions a world where everyone benefits from free and open source software built by white, male, and closed-minded communities.
                  then damn y'all.

                  IMHO, none of that other crap after the word software should really matter or even need to be stated if the code is worth a damn.

                  And with all the complaining about how everything sucks and there's too many bugs and whatnot, that means we can deduct that the current status quo of "mainly white dudes" ain't really all that great, so why don't we give things like "welcoming environments" and "diversity" a try and perhaps we'll get more users which will, in turn, result in more bug reports and programmers to fix bugs.

                  I also considered:
                  The Fedora Project lives in a world where Red Hat benefits from free and open source software built by inclusive, welcoming, and open-minded communities.
                  and
                  The Fedora Project envisions a world where we have a 30% market share.
                  but I had to keep it real.

                  I'm gonna get back to working on my Fedora Desktop. It's play with themes day.

                    The second half actually was fine for me. Anyway, good joke about "white, male, and closed-minded communities". But, IMHO, not quite true anymore, the majority now would be Asian people,...

                    I was referring to the first half, especially my eyes got caught by "... everyone benefits ...". However, you're right, that everything nice on global scale, reminds of communism and socialism.

                    Also, bugs are bugs,... me, as developer of custom software solutions, know that there's never enough time to deliver it all and perfect,.. (maybe, if better technologies were used, where developers spend most time writing only domain related stuff, then it's possible,... however, implementing all layers is quite effort, and practically all controllers and DAO/Repositories are quite similar)
