i feel like old-skool free/open dudes would be apoplectic at the idea that nobody can run their own kernel on consumer hardware, and that all self-run software has to take place in the domain of VMs and emulators
yet they mostly didn't give a shit through decades of proprietary bioses and cpu designs
does it matter which level the turtles stop?

The fact the FSF is doubling down on RMS and effectively saying "we need him" is telling. It means they have a cult that can't survive without him, not a sustainable and vibrant organisation.
One day, RMS is going to die. This isn't an ominous threat or something, it's just what happens to everyone eventually. It could be tomorrow, or it could be 40 years from now. Realistically, the guy is 68. He is probably going to die within most of our lifetimes.
If the FSF cannot survive without RMS, then the FSF has no long-term future, by this simple fact alone. Not that open source or FOSS needs the FSF. It will survive with or without them, and continue with or without them.
If people can't accept that, then that's just too bad.

Person to me: Wow how are you so good at that?
Me: Loads of practice over many years!
Also me: Ugh this is the second time I'm trying this why aren't I amazing at it already
I love open source. Information Security is important to me. I work on Icecast in my free time.
