In my work I often face people complaining that adopting standards will prevent them from innovating.
You know, Apple, Microsoft, & Google refuse to standardize their desktops, whilst we crazy FOSS people have standardized. Yet, where do you see all the desktop divirsity?
Standards allow for that!
@alcinnz Standards are necessary for that! It's how we develop modular interoperability that drives diversity.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
