Rise of open-source Software
 

 
Open-source software powers nearly all the world’s major companies. This software is freely available, and is developed collaboratively, maintained by a broad network that includes everyone from unpaid volunteers to employees at competing tech companies. Here’s how giving away software for free has proven to be a viable business model.

for me personally open source is always a learning opportunity (especially when i'm trying to learn a new language) and a way to see how others approach writing code/solve problems

Open source is dope.
It's also the reason I support Windows and stay away from Apple.

Shout outs to the modding community for games as well.

If you support open source you should say fu*k Windows and go towards Linux.

If you support open source software then you should use Linux and not Windows.

Open source is cool but it is too complex for the average user for the most part.

Android, Ubuntu, VLC, Firefox, Keepass and Libre Office are too 'complex' for the average user?

You got that but I meant something different. Like linux and open source programs without GUI.

Open source doesn't mean CLI, if that's what you are driving at.

The average person makes use of open source software and operating systems everyday with relative ease.

Android is the most commonly used mobile OS, most Android users are not making use of the terminal.

i never had a chrome book so don't know exactly what your talking bout but in my experience, learning any language is a building block to understanding of other languages and systems.
Currently it depends on what industry you want to get into or what you want to make
web app = HTML CSS JavaScript Node Angular etc.
games = C# C++ Python Java etc.
apps = java C C++ python etc.
Database / Server etc.
but HTML/CSS/JavaScript is an elementary way of an intro to developing
even Scratch imo is useful to familiarize yourself with programming and algorithm construction

Don't know what that Chrome app is but The Odin Project is the real deal if you're interested in Web Development. TOP will teach you the basics, Git, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Databases, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and NodeJS. They even have a course on getting hired. All of this is completely free and supported by an open source community.

Computer doesn’t matter... look at all the people in 3rd world countries coding on absolute crap computers. You’ll be ok.

I agree mostly but you can use JavaScript to code apps using React Native which actually has the great benefit of being able to work on Android and iPhone opposed to learning Java or Kotlin for Android and C or Swift for the iPhone.

Personally I think Angular is trash and allows no freedom. React is a better way to go because you could build that for the web and a lot of that code could transition to a native app.

For backend/server stuff I suggest NodeJS

For database it’s entirely up to you though... learn SQL and learn MongoDB and switch which way you fall more towards. I prefer Mongo because the cloud is typically more friendly with NoSQL.

Releasing that heat OP. Props!!! Already on top of it and stay arguing about open source. Working two different virtualization platforms at the current. My legacy system is Running Proxmox 6.0 which is hosting pfSense, CentOS Stream, Kali, EVE-NG, and Windows 10.

Newer system running Proxmox 6.1 on a 2 TB NVMe m.2 and looking to host Ubuntu Server, Windows and Parrot OS and some other stuff that is unknown at the moment.

When Microsoft bought it I didn't really understand it (how they would make an immediate profit) but watching the developer community grow globally, it really makes sense for a company that started with Software
