Resumen: Nuevos ejemplos de las ilegítimas ofertas de Microsoft con las naciones africanas y árabes en su mayor parte.

Cuando no se puede jugar y ganar por las reglas, ¿qué más puedes hacer? Probablemente trampa. Hace unos días hemos recibido alguna respuesta fuertemente redactada de este post acerca de los grupos de presión de Microsoft [http://techrights.org/2011/01/02/microsoft-lobbying-figures/](hay más[http://techrights.org/2011/01/04/suzan-delbene-appointment/]). David escribió: “Yo sólo sé del comportamiento de la fuerza federal de ventas de Microsoft en el pasado y por lo tanto, considero cualquier persona que se encargó de ella, ser penalmente responsable. Pero creo que voy a tener que escribir un artículo sobre este tema.”

El post de hoy es una agregación de noticias de los últimos dos meses – de noticias que nos perdimos debido a que yo tenga un muy ocupado diciembre.

Nos gustaría empezar con las noticias de un sitio de “noticias” financiado por Bill Gates (más sobre esto más adelante), que dice que “la African Capacity Building Foundation y partner de Microsoft para construir la capacidad de las TIC para el Sector Público y la sociedad civil en África [http://allafrica.com/stories/201011152131.html]”

El African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) y Microsoft se han reunido hoy para la formalización de un Memorando de Entendimiento (MOU) entre sus dos organizaciones. El objetivo del Memorando de Entendimiento es para las dos empresas a unirse a su formidable reputación y experiencia para ayudar a coordinar los diferentes programas de creación de capacidad en toda África.

Oh, sí. Otro memorando de entendimiento, que significa Memorando de Entendimiento. Para aquellos que quieren ver documentos filtrados que Microsoft explica la naturaleza depredadora de memorandos de entendimiento, comienza aquí [http://techrights.org/2009/01/14/ms-presentation-against-linux/]. Aquí hay otro comunicado de prensa [http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skolkovo-fund-and-microsoft-sign-memorandum-of-understanding-106435058.html] titulado “Fondo de Skolkovo y Microsoft firman un Memorando de Entendimiento”.

Ahora bien, recordemos Microsoft en Jordania [http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Microsoft_in_Jordan] cuando nos acercamos a estas noticias del gobierno de Jordania [http://www.zawya.com/mobile/default.cfm/sidZAWYA20101128092940/actstory]. ¿Hubo una oferta? Feria de contratación? U ofertas bajo la mesa, como de costumbre?

Añada a Microsoft de presionar al gobierno de Qatar, con el Día Nacional de Qatar como una excusa [http://www.thepeninsulaqatar.com/qatar/134883-new-website-to-be-launched-for-qatar-national-day.html]. Este truco suena tan familiar. Para citar: “Los funcionarios del Consejo Nacional de la Celebración del Día del Comité Organizador, el Golfo y Microsoft de el Desarrollo Link, el proveedor líder de soluciones de TI en la región, anunciaron conjuntamente este durante la conferencia del Medio Oriente de SharePoint en el Hotel de la Cuatro Estaciones el domingo.” Esto es de esperar auto explicativo. Alojarse en esta misma región, recordemos las historias Kuwait [http://techrights.org/2010/05/14/nobody-needs-suse/] Linux [http://techrights.org/2010/05/13/kuwait-and-rht/]y cómo esta fue bloqueada por Microsoft [http://techrights.org/2010/01/28/partners-in-learning-deals/]. Añada un paso más [http://www.zawya.com/mobile/default.cfm/sidZAWYA20101209053758/actstory] en el descarrilamiento de autonomía digital de Kuwait:

Como demostración de su compromiso continuo a la mejora de la calidad de la educación y el fortalecimiento de la capacidad de aprendizaje de los estudiantes de la Universidad de Kuwait, a fin de ayudarles a ser más creativos y utilizar las últimas soluciones de TI, Microsoft Kuwait firmaron ayer un convenio con la universidad, que verá estudiantes KU ofrece tarifas especiales para su software de oficina, ‘Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010.

Microsoft está presionando el uso de eventos, esta vez en el Pakistán[http://www.thenews.com.pk/latest-news/4539.htm]. Para vergüenza. También hay adoctrinamiento nacional en Pakistán [http://tribune.com.pk/story/93465/hec-microsoft-enter-strategic-partnership/] (adoctrinamiento de Microsoft en detrimento del propio Estado):

ISLAMABAD: Comisión de Educación Superior (HEC) y Microsoft entró en una alianza estratégica en Pakistán centralizado para proporcionar servicios de TI a las universidades a través de Pakistán, según un comunicado de prensa emitido por la HEC.

Mira lo que Microsoft hace en los hospitales de Dubai[http://www.sify.com/news/microsoft-offers-health-products-for-dubai-hospitals-news-international-kkywafhjaii.html]. Para los no iniciados, Microsoft está bloqueando la adopción de software libre en Dubai [http://techrights.org/2009/11/09/new-deals-that-exclude-09/] mediante “Memorandos de Entendimiento” [http://techrights.org/2008/01/30/paris-dubai-microsoft-deal/] y en las escuelas de Delhi [http://informationweek.in/Cloud_Computing/10-12-20/Delhi_Public_School_chooses_Microsoft%E2%80%99s_cloud-based_e-mail_platform.aspx], entre otros lugares, tales como SUNY [http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-20026312-75.html] (Universidad Estatal de Nueva York [http://www.ttkn.com/education/state-university-of-new-york-moves-to-microsoft%E2%80%99s-cloud-6725.html]) utiliza la Microsoft Live @ Edu estafa [http://techrights.org/2009/03/20/microsoft-live-edu-leaked/]. Se convierte a los estudiantes en vasallos Microsoft temprano en sus vidas. Este software no fiable se anuncia por la tristémente célebre Mary Jo Foley [http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/microsoft-to-add-new-features-to-liveedu-starting-in-february-2011/8246], a pesar de enormes problemas en Hotmail [http://techrights.org/2011/01/04/couple-of-days-without-mail/], por ejemplo. Para cualquier persona que elija Microsoft para el correo electrónico que probablemente requiere los sobornos ofrecidos a los funcionarios por el programa Live@Edu (que se filtró gracias a alguien de la India) o algunas ofertas de trastienda *. Hablando de eso, concéntremonos en lo que Wipro y Microsoft están haciendo [http://www.tradingmarkets.com/news/stock-alert/wit_wipro-wins-microsoft-platform-modernization-award-for-sales-for-2010-1306062.html] (Wipro servicios de Microsoft para obtener un premio[http://techrights.org/2010/06/21/wipro-nasscom-help-microsoft/]). Oh, bueno. Un día más en el mundo de compadrazgo de Microsoft.


Eduardo Landaveri, who is responsible for the Spanish portal of Techrights, adds to the above translation of his:

I feel very happy to belong to the Techrights Community & proud to be side by side with all of you who make Techrights possible. Thanks God for each one of you.

Why I do it? & I think the answer also applies to why you do it. The answer comes from RMS:

“Proprietary software is an injustice and we want to help you escape from it.”

–Richard Stallman

My regards to each one of you

The same quote in Spanish:

“El software propietario es una injusticia y nosotros queremos a ayudarte a escapar de el”

–Richard Stallman

We thank Eduardo Landaveri for translating the story and making the information available to more people.

* Se debe hacer hincapié en que Google no es mejor en lo que respecta a las universidades (que se plantea como una batalla “Microsoft vs Google”[http://www.searchenginejournal.com/microsoft-vs-google-the-university-war/26690/] y mucho falta en esta imagen simplificada), ya que todas las universidades deben ir con el software libre en cambio, ofrecer al personal y estudiantes la independencia de los ojos de espionaje de alguna empresa exterior.

  2. Summits of Open Bear Traps: The Open Core Summit and Other 'Open' Events That Actually Attack Software Freedom

    Conferences that call themselves "open" something are sometimes nothing but an attack on openness (not to mention freedom) and promotion of FUD about Free/Open Source software (FOSS); there's an ample set of examples to that effect



  3. Openwashing Report: 'Open Source' Without Any or Most of the Benefits

    The cheapening of the term "Open Source" continues; sooner or later everything out there will be called "open" irrespective of what it really is



  4. Patent Extremism is Not Normal and Not an Innocent Mindset

    Reflection upon the sad state of the European patent system and how media turns a blind eye to it; worldwide, in general, the discussion about patents is being warped by the litigation giants, whose sole goal is to maximise the number of lawsuits/shakedowns (personal gain)

  7. IBM Cannot Become a True Friend of Free Software Because of Its Current Patent Policy

    IBM needs to quit bullying people/companies with software patents; that would help towards appeasement of IBM critics and sceptics



  8. When Patent 'Professionals' Sound Like Children Who Learned to Parrot Some Intentionally-Misleading Buzzwords, Myths and Lies

    With buzzwords like "AI" and misleading terms like "IP" the litigation zealots are trying to convince themselves (and the public) that software is a physical thing and a "property" which needs "protecting" from "theft"; it doesn't seem to bother these people that copyright law already covers software<



  9. The European Parliament Needs to Become More Outspoken About EPO Abuses

    There are few encouraging signs in Europe right now because the EPO's disregard for patent law (striving to just grant as many patents as possible) earned it much-needed backlash from the European Parliament

  11. Buying the Voices of 'Linux' People to Repeat Microsoft's Talking Points While Removing Our Icons and Leaders (Calling Them Sexist)

    The dirty games leveraged by several companies including Microsoft target charismatic people who are essential for morale and leadership; these tactics aren't particularly novel



  12. When the EPO Sees Itself as Above European Law, Grants Patents in Defiance of the EPC (Its Founding Document) and Violates Staff's Labour Rights/Protections (International Law)

    The absurd state of affairs at the EPO has reached the point where laws at every level are being violated and even judges are being threatened or vainly ignored; the EU is belatedly trying to tackle these issues, which have actually cost its credibility a great deal and threaten the perception of Rule of Law at multiple levels

  17. EPO is Not European

    Internationalists and patent trolls are those who stand to benefit from the 'globalisation' of low-quality and law-breaking patents such as patents on algorithms, nature and life itself; the EPO isn't equipped to serve its original goals anymore



  18. The EPO's Central Staff Committee and SUEPO (Staff Union) Respond to “Fascist Bills” Supported by EPO President António Campinos

    Raw material pertaining to the latest Campinos "scandal"; what Campinos said, what the Central Staff Committee (CSC) said, and what SUEPO said



  19. Storm Brewing in the European Patent Office After a Hot Summer

    Things aren't rosy in EPOnia (to say the least); in fact, things have been getting a lot worse lately, but the public wouldn't know judging by what media tells the public (almost nothing)



  20. Why I Once Called for Richard Stallman to Step Down

    Guest post from the developer who recently authored "Getting Stallman Wrong Means Getting The 21st Century Wrong"



  21. As Richard Stallman Resigns Let's Consider Why GNU/Linux Without Stallman and Torvalds Would be a Victory to Microsoft

    Stallman has been ejected after a lot of intentionally misleading press coverage; this is a dark day for Software Freedom

    Links for the day



  24. Richard Stallman's Controversial Views Are Nothing New and They Distract From Bill Gates' Vastly Worse Role

    It's easier to attack Richard Stallman (RMS) using politics (than using his views on software) and media focus on Stallman's personal views on sexuality bears some resemblance to the push against Linus Torvalds, which leans largely on the false perception that he is sexist, rude and intolerant



  25. Links 16/9/2019: Linux 5.3, EasyOS Releases, Media Backlash Against RMS

    Links for the day



  26. Openwashing Report on Open Networking Foundation (ONF): When Open Source Means Collaboration Among Giant Spying Companies

    Massive telecommunications oligopolies (telecoms) are being described as ethical and responsible by means of openwashing; they even have their own front groups for that obscene mischaracterisation and ONF is one of those



  27. 'Open Source' You Cannot Run Without Renting or 'Licensing' Windows From Microsoft

    When so-called ‘open source’ programs strictly require Vista 10 (or similar) to run, how open are they really and does that not redefine the nature of Open Source while betraying everything Free/libre software stands for?



  28. All About Control: Microsoft is Not Open Source But an Open Source Censor/Spy and GitHub/LinkedIn/Skype Are Its Proprietary Censorship/Surveillance Tools

    All the big companies which Microsoft bought in recent years are proprietary software and all of the company’s big products remain proprietary software; all that “Open Source” is to Microsoft is “something to control and censor“



  29. The Sad State of GNU/Linux News Sites

    The ‘media coup’ of corporate giants (that claim to be 'friends') means that history of GNU/Linux is being distorted and lied about; it also explains prevalent lies such as "Microsoft loves Linux" and denial of GNU/Free software



  30. EPO President Along With Bristows, Managing IP and Other Team UPC Boosters Are Lobbying for Software Patents in Clear and Direct Violation of the EPC

    A calm interpretation of the latest wave of lobbying from litigation professionals, i.e. people who profit when there are lots of patent disputes and even expensive lawsuits which may be totally frivolous (for example, based upon fake patents that aren't EPC-compliant)
