So you trust a bunch of pseudonymous programmer commies with your connections and files more than you trust the large company that's held accountable by the highest courts?


yes because they show you the source code
simple as


And do you understand any of it? Do you know where your data is going, and do you believe the receivers of that data to be less likely to use it for nefarious deeds than a reputable large company?


it's more about the spirit of it

tbh ive never even built things from source. most things require so much bullshit i feel gross setting it all up. id rather juat trust in their binaries

but i like knowing ppl can look through it and find bugs and suggest improvements or changes potentially

you know why bug bounties are a thing? because their software is closed off and they dont really have a good way to test it. so they need ppl to pry at it externally

not the guy you replied to


All software should be made available in source form by default. It can still be charged, licensed, copyrighted if they so fancy, but there is no reason for source code to be kept "secret".
Unless you have dishonest reasons, of course.
