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.

DecorWhat Else is New


  1. A Parade of Fake News About the UPC Does Not Change the General Consensus or the Simple Facts

    European Patents (EPs) from the EPO are granted in violation of the EPC; Courts are now targeted by António Campinos and the minions he associates with (mostly parasitic litigation firms and monopolists), for they want puppets for “judges” and for invalid patents to be magically rendered “valid” and “enforceable”



  2. Welcome to 2022: Intentional Lies Are 'Benefits' and 'Alternative Facts'

    A crooks-run EPO, together with the patent litigation cabal that we’ve dubbed ‘Team UPC’ (it has nothing to do with science or with innovation), is spreading tons of misinformation; the lies are designed to make the law-breaking seem OK, knowing that Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are practically above the law, so perjury as well as gross violations of the EPC and constitutions won’t scare them (prosecution as deterrence just isn’t there, which is another inherent problem with the UPC)



  3. From Software Eating the World to the Pentagon Eating All the Software

    “Software is eating the world,” according to Marc Andreessen (co-founder of Netscape), but the Empire Strikes Back (not the movie, the actual empire) by hijacking all code by proxy, via Microsoft, just as it grabbed a lot of the world’s communications via Skype, bypassing the world's many national telecoms; coders need to fight back rather than participate in racist (imperial) shams such as GitHub

  6. Peak Code — Part II: Lost Source

    "Debian and Mozilla played along. They were made “Yeoman Freeholders” in return for rewriting their charters to “work closely with the new Ministry in the interests of all stakeholders” – or some-such vacuous spout… because no one remembers… after that it started."

  8. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)



  9. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

  12. Gemini Lets You Control the Presentation Layer to Suit Your Own Needs

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects



  13. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  16. The Web is a Corporate Misinformation/Disinformation Platform, Biased Against Communities, Facts, and Science

    Misinformation/disinformation in so-called 'news' sites is a pandemic which spreads; in the process, the founder of GNU/Linux gets defamed and GNU/Linux itself is described as the problem, not the solution to the actual problems

  22. When Twitter Protects Abusers and Abuse (and Twitter's Sponsors)

    Twitter is an out-of-control censorship machine and it should be treated accordingly even by those who merely "read" or "follow" Twitter accounts; Twitter is a filter, not a news/media platform or even means of communication

  25. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

  27. Good News, Bad News (and Back to Normal)

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)
