right to repair is completely different than being able to MacGyver stuff. What's happened is a number of a$$holes in companies are trying to prevent anyone but the oem's from maintaining equipment. It's the equivalent to the subscription model software companies have been pushing (looking at you SciTools - thieving #$#$%$%$%%). The oems are trying to lock in their customers to the oems very expensive maintenance plans.

Me? If it runs, I don't toss it. Multiple cars pushing 200k in the driveway.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
