1 # Software considered harmful
2
3 In the sidebar on the left, you can find why i consider some points of
4 the software bad.
5
6 I did not fall for the minimalism meme, but sometimes Minimalistic
7 software less bad than non minimalistic software. Sometimes a
8 "bloated" program is way better than non bloated ones, for example,
9 Emacs vs Vim. Or Firefox vs Surf.

13 Here you can find a table (Consider this as a TODO) I am not including
14 GNU utilities because, altough they don't follow standards, their
15 extensions are kinda useful. So I don't consider them harmful.
