  1. That’s my kind of episode, very thought provoking.

    Borrowing from the theme i’d like to add a few…

    • Without fortitude everything will eat you.
    • Without good will, you’ll always be hungry.
  2. Quick reaction to the title: It could be improved a bit - Its the kind of sentence that doesnt have a punctuation, but reading it with wrong pauses causes a bit of confusion.

    With that said, I am reserving this episode for my next commute.


  3. what would you suggest the title be?

  4. Avatar for Trent Trent says:

    Firefox was mentioned a lot. It probably will be gone in the 5 years as mentioned due to stances on now being pro censorship, bad decisions on the software, and generally people complaining it has gotten very bloated feeling. Edge now has more users than Firefox, and it has dropped to single digit of percentage market share.

  5. Oooff… I knew this follow-up would come. I slept on it and still no good idea.

    Maybe “Misplaced Passion - Is our inarticulateness and unkindness holding Linux back?”

    Its longer than I’d like but it seems to summarize the sentiment well.

    Only because it is the default install. No one really installs Edge on purpose.
