It’s a shame that the only decent command-line we have is the Linux/Unix ecosystem. There are reasons it is the way it is, esp. the fact that most hobbyist devs are programmers/engineers (way too few designers, writers, sensibility readers etc., & the precious ones we have get little respect).
But a cmdline could be all of:
- fully decolonised
& the fact that ours isn’t is taken to be an essential limitation of cmdlines…
On a more serious note, based on a conversation on an Internet forum (and addressed mostly at people from the USA):
Most of y'all are probably aware of that, but there's no such thing as speaking "without an accent". If you're not broadcasting words directly into someone's brain via telepathy, you have an accent.
It matters because it's not just incorrect, it's also an example of centering one type of language (yours) as invisible and therefore default.
*Everyone* has an accent.
youtube removing community captions is so fucked up honestly. it's a massive fuck you to those with hearing issue, language processioning issues like some can have with autism, pretty much all non english speakers or those in the process of learning which media immersion is an amazing way to learn I may add. and there's literally no reason to do it than google doing what they always do, killing off services and features because fuck you
