GitHub: Where everything comes to die

Summary: Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley from Microsoft GitHub (the man behind the GPL violation machine called “Copilot”) has “pled guilty to get deferred sentence”

IN THE previous part, which was the first part of this second phase, we dealt with the objectives and strategy of GitHub. Microsoft wants to leverage it to imprison development of software — putting it back in shackles of proprietary software. The first 20 parts of the series partly focused on Graveley but mostly on Copilot, culminating in the arrest record of Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley, the person behind Copilot, then behind bars.

“Alex pled guilty to get deferred sentence,” a source has told us. In other words, he admits culpability or guilt. Long gone are his close friends Miguel de Icaza and Nat Friedman, who have already fled the scene (Microsoft) and are keeping eerily low profile. We know for a fact that they knew what he had done (we showed hard evidence earlier in this series), they certainly knew how bad that was, and still they protected, shielded, and sometimes promoted this person. Some of the Board of the Linux Foundation (from Microsoft) also covered it up! Later they tell us how much they value Diversity and Inclusion

This seems like typical Microsoft behaviour — a lack of a conscientious instinct.

The “other Alex” (Kipman) has meanwhile been removed in relation to sexual things [1, 2]. He was a top-level manager at Microsoft and we have reasons to suspect what he did was vastly worse than what Microsoft wants us to know (same thing which happened in 2020 when Microsoft was quick to distance itself from the pervert Bill Gates).

  1. 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

  3. [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

  5. 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



  6. [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



  7. 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)



  8. [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



  9. 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



  10. According to StatCounter, GNU/Linux Reaches All-Time High on Desktops and Laptops (Steam Survey Shows the Same)

    We've been looking lately at the demise of Microsoft Windows because the corporate ("mainstream" or "tech") media does not mention it; GNU/Linux is among those rising steadily at Windows' expense (Android more so)

  12. PeppermintOS Without Systemd More Popular Than the 'Standard' Edition?

    PeppermintOS without systemd has more seeders than the "default" or the standard edition of the GNU/Linux distro; maybe they should consider making Devuan the default base system

  17. Estonia Adopting GNU/Linux Fast Since Russia Invaded Ukraine

    Windows has back doors; Estonia seems wise enough to move away from it, more so after Russian hostility



  18. In These Censorious Times...

    The World Wide Web has rapidly become a platform of censorship (not just in places like China and Russia) and we're extending to protocols that make censorship very difficult, sometimes infeasible

  25. As Lennart Moves to His 'Mother Ship' (Microsoft), Will Devuan Become the 'New Debian'?

    There are signs that more developers are fatigued or fed up with systemd; we too have begun moving our sites away from systemd

  27. In Africa, Android is More Than Three Times Bigger Than Microsoft Windows

    Now that Microsoft is starting to block Linux from booting on new laptops it’s important to remember that the “consumer” does not actually choose Windows; Microsoft is trying to forcibly impose Windows on unwanting computer users



  28. LinuxToday (or Linux Today) Shows Signs of Agony

    The Web site LinuxToday.com is pushing webspam instead of news picks; it also sells data about visitors (the typical “We value your privacy” lie), so it seems like “monetisation” tactics have taken precedence/priority over readers (or what’s left of them anyway; the webspam inevitably drives more of them away)
