Richard Stallman talk slot

Summary: Cordial headsup to Free/libre software aficionados; “Richard Stallman will be giving a talk in Kyiv, Ukraine, on Saturday, September, 18, titled Free Software and the GNU General Public License,” his Web site says. It’s noted here.


In Old Video From Egypt, Richard Stallman Explains Why It’s GNU/Linux Rather Than Just Linux (for the Whole System) and How It Started in the 1980s

Summary: In order to tackle revisionism (rampant in the media this month) we’re reproducing in a Free format an old video; the relevant part is spanning about 5:40-6:20 (minutes:seconds) from the start


Prof. Moglen at OSCON, Speaking to O’Reilly: Open Source is a Waste of Time (Distracts From Software Freedom)

Posted in Free/Libre Software, GPL, Videos at 5:05 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Video download link (and an archived copy at IA)

Summary: To cut to the chase, the segment of interest is 4:07 to 8:23, as noted here; the video itself is hard to find any longer, even in official channels


[Meme] Stop Giving Code to Microsoft’s GitHub

Posted in GNU/Linux, GPL, Microsoft at 1:40 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“Every line of code that is written to our standards is a small victory; every line of code that is written to any other standard, is a small defeat.”

James Plamondon, Microsoft Technical Evangelist. From Exhibit 3096; Comes v. Microsoft litigation [PDF]

Microsoft loves GNU/Linux as hostage

Summary: Now that Microsoft uses GitHub to encourage GPL violations it’s time to reassess the alleged ‘safety’ of outsourcing code to Microsoft

“Where are we on this Jihad?”

Bill Gates referring to Linux

IBM’s Attack on the Community and on GPL/FSF is an Attack on Red Hat’s Greatest Asset

Posted in Deception, FSF, GNU/Linux, GPL, IBM, Red Hat, Servers at 6:09 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

IBM has no clue what it's doing (and it has lost someone who knew better, Mr. Allowhurst)

We've made centos users become IBM customers, but it didn't work because of Alma, Rocky, Debian etc.
IBM attacks what it cannot understand (or cannot control)

Summary: Ever since IBM bought Red Hat it has repeatedly attacked the FSF (in a malicious and personified fashion), looking for its own ‘copyright grab’ whilst outsourcing loads of code to proprietary software monopolisers who attack the GPL; by doing so, IBM is destroying the value of what it paid more than 30 billion dollars for (IBM is governed by pretentious fools, according to IBM insiders; they’ve already lost Red Hat’s longtime CEO and IBM’s new President), so it’s falling back on openwashing of IBM's proprietary software with help from the so-called ‘Linux’ Foundation


[Meme] OSI is Doing Just Fine

Posted in GPL, Microsoft, OSI at 8:06 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Free software development rep, OSI, GitHub
Don’t worry! Microsoft will save the OSI!

Summary: So what if OSI is run by someone who raised money from Microsoft (to sell Microsoft a keynote slot in a copyleft event — the thing that Microsoft attacks through GitHub!) while funnelling the OSI's funds to a serial GPL violator?


Open Source Initiative (OSI) a Sinking Ship in Service of Microsoft Monopoly, Proprietary Software, and Even GPL Violations

Summary: The Open Source Initiative (OSI), which nowadays approves licences it ought not approve, not only takes funding from enemies of Open Source/Free software (for openwashing and silence/complicity); it actively promotes them and makes excuses for their attacks on software freedom

Some years ago the Linux Foundation became a proponent of GPL violations despite the GPL being the licence of the project it is called after.

The defunct OSI is commenting on Microsoft’s proprietary software that helps violate the GPL/copyleft. It’s authored by the same people who tried to eliminate the father of Free software, Richard Stallman, as recently as a few months ago. What does that tell us about the OSI?

We’ve decided to belatedly do a video about these issues, seeing that we’re unable to produce as much lately, partly because of the heatwave.


[Meme] Proprietary Software Helps You Violate the GPL

Posted in GPL, Microsoft, VMware at 7:44 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Microsoft helps you with GPL violation!

Summary: The flagrant disregard for copyleft is showing; but when Microsoft and VMware (led by Microsofters) violate the GPL and then use the Linux Foundation to get away with it don’t expect a legal challenge; Microsoft has already bribed SFC at least twice
