    Do you understand what Open Source means? Cause this…

    3. Visual Studio Code

    …tells me that you don’t. VSC is distributed by Microsoft. First of all, that’s an immediate red flag and a no-go for it being free as in freedom. But is it at least Open Source, in the sense that you can see the source code? No. Even the Javascript is minified and obfuscated to hell with a big fat “ALL RIGHTS RESERVED” notice slapped on top of it.

    It’s literally the opposite of Open Source and everything the FSF stands for.

  5. Braden Best says:

    Visual Studio Code from Microsoft is included?

    I don’t think you understand what Open Source means, let alone the difference between Open Source and the FSF’s definition of ‘free’ (Free as in freedom). Microsoft does not make free software. They don’t even make Open Source software. They are a company with the singular goal of profit, so why would they ever release their proprietary code? Even the javascript found in the distribution is crushed down into a single line with the comment “Copyright Microsoft Corporation, all rights reserved.” above it.

    VSC is the exact opposite of open-source.

    There are three other applications which I think are excellent, I use them daily; Libreoffice, Gimp, and Bluefish.

    Thanks for these tips – a good selection and I shall look forward to trying them out. We already use Libreoffice and Gimp on Linux Mint. I can’t remember the last time I had to fire up my Windows 10 laptop!
