why is the "Proprietary" license-badge in the #ubuntu softwarecenter green?
I think the value here is to give a visual signal that free software is better. You don't need to mark proprietary software as 'red' or dangerous, but you can visually promote better choices.
So 'fix' is perhaps wrong. But, I think the visualization can be improved.
@popey @milan certainty when you consider the entire product there is more to consider than just the license. But here we are just talking about the visualization of the license field. Which is a simpler discussion.
I would agree that making proprietary red isn't fair either, but the western values associated with green are 'good' and 'go', which is saying it something you should do or find positive.
@ted @milan I agree that they shouldn't be coloured at all, or should be neutral. We recently did a lot of design work on GNOME Software - much of which is submitted for review and discussion on the GS gitlab. We presented different ways to show these fields. We will never please the fanatical FSF subscriber, but we can allow users to make informed decisions.
