EmacsConf Without Richard Stallman

Posted in FSF, Humour at 2:12 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

New: “November 2: Save the date! EmacsConf is coming to Boston” (Stallman, who lives in Boston, is not even mentioned)

This man made emacs. Sorry, people no longer know or care.

Summary: Now that emacs is being 'rebranded' this kind of meme seems apt

Posted in FSF, Humour at 10:19 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Beware the hyenas

The Free Software Foundation defends your freedom. That's the safe space, LibrePlanet with a CoC.

…So This GNU/Linux User Goes to a Pub With Swapnil and Jim

Posted in Apple, GNU/Linux, Humour at 11:12 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Linux.com Editor and Linux Foundation Chief

So... I run this thing called Linux Foundation and my friend runs Linux.com. So you use Linux Fuck no!! We're Mac users!

Linux Foundation Board Meeting

Posted in GNU/Linux, Humour at 2:13 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Linux Foundation session in progress

Our reputation is sinking. How can we shut up our critics? Paid tweets and sponsored articles. Start promoting GNU/Linux desktops?

Summary: More sponsored keynotes and tweets — like more sponsored articles (or “media partners”) — aren’t what the Linux Foundation really needs

Summary: Saint IGNUcius — Richard Stallman — just isn’t the Saint Bill Gates is

Posted in Europe, Humour, Patents at 12:04 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Reference: Immunity of the Intellectual Property Office of the European Union Causes Outrage in Spanish Media (António Campinos)

Licensing and Litigation, Science and Technology, and the EPO

Summary: The EPO is crashing and we know who’s to blame other than Battistelli

Microsoft Tweets in Linux Platforms

Posted in GNU/Linux, Humour, Microsoft at 8:30 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

I don't always promote Microsoft in my tweets. When I do, it's only because the Linux Foundation pays me for it, simply because Microsoft bought tweets through event sponsorship.

Summary: This observation about the Linux Foundation seems very appropriate (and true) now that Linux.com’s sole editor is (re)posting Microsoft tweets (shades of Jono Bacon)

Linux Oughtn’t Be Just a Brand

Posted in GNU/Linux, Humour, Kernel at 3:01 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz
