  1. Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part XXV — Microsoft Employs Serial Strangler as a Manager, Running GitHub Copilot in Spite of Arrest for Assault on Women

    Now there is another woman saying that she was strangled by Alex Garveley; we keep hearing more and more of this, so it’s a chronic behaviour and it doesn’t seem to bother Microsoft, which provides funds to protect the strangler

  2. Links 11/08/2022: PostgreSQL Beta 3 Releases

    Links for the day

  3. Windows Falling Below 15% in Cuba This Month

    Now that Microsoft starts locking down and shutting out GNU/Linux (preventing it from even booting!) while laying off about 10% its own workers it’s important to understand that Windows is basically in serious trouble

  4. Links 11/08/2022: Point Release of Ubuntu 22.04 and GNUnet 0.17.4

  6. Not Everyone Buys the Latest Laptop With Microsoft Windows (Bloatware)

    In Sudan, the share of Windows fell from 99.1% to just 8.77% (in a matter of 13.5 years); Microsoft, which is collapsing (layoffs and shutdowns), is just trying to block people from booting Linux on laptops/desktops

  8. Microsoft Death Spiral: Microsoft Fires 200 Employees “Working to Win Back Customers”

    Guest post by Ryan, reprinted with permission

  9. Microsoft Firing 10%, Not 1%, of Staff (Microsoft Lies to the Media, Figures One Order of Magnitude Off)

    Microsoft’s loyal servants in the media jumped onboard and leaped into “damage control” mode (PR as “media”) with this fictional “reality” where only a “small percentage” of staff gets laid off (those talking points come from Microsoft’s media operatives, who have lied for the company for well over a decade)

  10. [Meme] The Present Microsoft: Bailouts, Bailouts, Bailouts

    Microsoft’s media moles spread the lie that only “1%” of staff is affected by Microsoft layoffs (familiar old lie; they also spin that as a routine thing) while Microsoft staff is getting tight with ‘travel’ money

  11. In Addition to Microsoft Laying Off Many Workers, Entire 'Business' Units Get Shut Down Permanently

    Information has begun spilling out about the collapse of several Microsoft units (entire units); the "1% of staff" talking point is just a typical Microsoft lie (seen for over a decade already)

  12. Number of Microsoft Layoffs Vastly Higher Than Microsoft Publicly Signals (the Perma-Temp and Contractor Loopholes)

    ‘Invalid’ employee status has long been misused by Microsoft in order to misreport real headcount; the above message is one recent example of that (there are many Microsoft layoffs this summer)

  13. [Meme] No Compliance, No Quality, No Accountability at the EPO

    The EPO under Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos is just rubber-stamping invalid monopolies or licences to sue

  14. The Art of Covering Up Microsoft Bug Doors

    The site Beta Noise ("News") is a GNU/Linux-hostile propaganda mill of Microsoft that's moreover posting webspam, misleading clickbait, FUD, and even shameless plagiarism

  16. Microsoft Windows in Turkey: From 99.45% to Not Even 9.13% (Relative Market Share Fell Tenfold in Just Over a Decade)

    Microsoft failed to evolve for a mobile era (Android runs Linux) and now there are Microsoft layoffs every month; employees are nervous based on ones we heard from and ones who speak in online forums

  17. More Microsoft Layoffs for Second Month in a Row (Those That Microsoft Even Openly Admits, Cannot Hide Anymore)

    Microsoft staff is getting more sweaty than Ballmer under the neck; Microsoft layoffs are spinning out of control and cannot be concealed from the public (usually perma-temp loopholes are used to hide that it is happening or the true extent of it)

  22. In DistroWatch, Peppermint is Already More Popular Than Devuan Itself

    Without systemd, people can still use GNU/Linux and there seems to be growing interest in Devuan, which implements Debian GNU/Linux without the heavy dependence on Microsoft's employee Lennart and his bloatware

  24. [Meme] Making European Patents Moot and Worthless

    EPO granting loads of patents that aren’t in compliance with the EPC means that lots of frivolous lawsuits and shakedowns (public and secret, behind closed doors) will harm Europe and put companies/inventors out of business; we applaud principled examiners who take action to upload the law

  26. How to Leak Material to Techrights

    EPO whistleblowers are needed (people with access to various communications, documents and verifiable words from the grapevine); today we remind — for the first time in video form — how to safely (on a relative scale) tell us stuff and send us stuff

  27. [Meme] Each According to His Abilities...

    Free software should all along have been governed by people with relevant skills; we’ve been seeing the exact same issue at the EPO

  28. Request for More Information on EPO/EUIPO Corruption

    A look at stuff we've been working on and investigate at the moment (we need help with information gathering)

  29. [Meme] Qualified and Diplomatic Immunity Begets Crime

    Europe's biggest patent office has sadly become a place that shelters and rewards criminals, who don't even know or care about the purpose of this office

  30. Mind-Blowing and Likely Verifiable Rumours About More High-Level Corruption at the European Patent Office (EPO)

    EPO corruption and extremely serious abuse, as told frankly and reported by informed sources; some of that is the subject of ongoing investigations
