Quick reminder that everyone with a stake in free and open source software should understand the four freedoms:

@sir as a free software dev I hadn't heard of these 4 freedoms until I happened to run into Richard Stallman himself yesterday

I think it is fair to question whether the usage of "you" in the 4 freedoms should apply to companies or just people.
Also, the freedoms apply to the user.
Maybe the creator needs a freedom as well: The freedom to not have your labor exploited

@sir Will you use GPL more often? Permissive license worries me a lot

@derle I use the GPL fairly often, and more so in the past few years than before

@sir Why did you choose MIT over GPL/LGPL for Sway/wlroot? (that's out of curiosity, I really appreciate your work and don't want to sound offensive)
