You: "What do you mean open source software reeks of elitism and toxicity?"

Arch Linux:


@spacekookie hold up...

so they made a helper program... that is designed to I guess help automate some of the bits of programming or somethng...

but they say that basically that it's only for advanced users??? surely an advanced user doesn't NEED a helper program?!?

fucksake what a bunch of dickheads.

@Nine Realistically the helper is just to make things more convenient. Reduce time to install a complex program from half an hour (by hand) to however fast your computer can download, build and install it.

So I would argue beginners and advanced users alike have reason to use it both.

@spacekookie this is absolutely true. I mostly take exception with their sneering insistence that only "advanced" users can and should use it, like you pointed out.

@Nine @spacekookie They target advanced users. it's clearly stated in readme, your disagreement with this statement doen't give you right to call anyone „dickhead”.
