¿Puede Microsoft Enterrar R como SIEMPRE lo hace despues de E.E.E.?

R Project

Sumario: Preocupaciones acerca de E.E.E (embrace, extiende y extingue) de Microsoft, quien esta vez tiene como objetivo la ciencia y muchas escuelas (mucha gente joven)

Este artículo trata con un importante tópico que reciéntemente mencionamos pero no tuvimos tiempo de analizarlo profundamente. Las últimas noches correspondimos con otras personas y debatimos en los canales IRC toda clase de posibilidades. Hay muchas especulaciones de mucha gente acerca del último movimiento E.E.E (embrace, extiende, y extingue) de Microsoft. Uno de nuestros contribuyentes, iophk, nos envió el siguiente sumario ejecutivo acerca del proyecto R.

He observado y esto es lo que he encontrado acerca de R:

El projecto R es protegido por la GPL (Licencia Pública General) en partes y el resto por la LGPL (Licencia Pública General Menor). Es propiedad de la Fundación R. Más allá, es un projecto oficial GNU: ¨R es una parte oficial de la Fundación De Software Libre FSF projecto GNU, y la Fundación R tiene goles similares a otras fundaciones de fuente abierta como la Fundación Apache o la Fundanción GNOME.¨

Es desarrollada por el Équipo Principal de Desarrollo, que cita miembros individuales pero no su afiliación organizacional.

Esa base parece fuerte.

En contraste, el Consorcio R es manejado por la Fundación Linux que tiene a Microsoft como miembro fundador (que tal aberración) con sus representantes en la gerencia principal. También tiene TIBCO que es un viejo socio de Microsoft pero no actual.


Pero parece, si lo leí correctamente, que los miembros fundadores de la Fundación R son miembros del Consorcio R también, si no están sobrecargados con el trabajo extra.

El Consorcio R cita apoyo de la Fundación R como objetivo, pero hay un montón de espacio para otros goles.

La Fundación Linux puede ser considerada OPONENTE DEL LINUX ORDENADOR, como lo es Microsoft, lo que es antagonístico a la GPL. Tal vez ambos lo son. El movimiento de la Fundación Linux para eliminar la representación comunitaria de la gerencia puede y debe ser interpretado como un MOVIMIENTO CONTRA LA GPL. Siendo un miembro Platino (de los que da más dinero para controlarla), Microsoft esta el Comite Directivo (ISC) del Consorcio R, que entre otras cosas determina las APIs.

El Consorcio R se enfoca exclusivamente en la conferencia de usaR! El Projecto R en sí apoya dos conferencias, usaR! y DSC. La primera es la principal.

Los medios han estado escribiendo acerca de Microsoft Revolution Analytics, pero Mango-Solutions* esta allí afuera también.

R en sí pueda ser segura, pero puede ser cubierta en los medios. Creo que uno de las principales avenidas pueda ser E.E.E via Revolution Analytics** y acaparar posiciones en ella (E.E.E con empleados) de usaR! asi como en el Consorcio R.

* Mango-Solutions parece bien. No puedo encontrar datos financieros por este o por Revolution Analytics.
** Hasta 2012 Revoltion Analytics todavía estabe declinando reportar sus ganancias, pudieron ser pequeñas entonces. Información de whois por el dominio “revolutionanalytics.com” esta obscurecida, otros dominios como ¨inside-r.org¨ muestran una dirección de Mountain View, California. FWIW, Microsoft históricamente compra débiles/debilísimas compañías, por ejemplo la de donde provino FrontPage.

El tiempo dirá si Microsoft puede hacer R una ´cosa´ Windows/OOXML/.NET, y si es así hasta que grado…

Como será evidente por los logs de IRC (cuando sean publicados), hay otros proyectos FOSS siendo sujetos al E.E.E por Microsoft ahora mismo.

  2. Society Needs to Take Back Computing, Data, and Networks

    Why GemText needs to become 'the new HTML' (but remain very simple) in order for cyberspace to be taken away from state-connected and military-funded corporations that spy on people and abuse society at large

  3. [Meme] Meanwhile in Austria...

    With lobbyists-led leadership one might be led to believe that a treaty strictly requiring ratification by the UK is somehow feasible (even if technically and legally it's moot already)

  4. The EPO's Web Site is a Parade of Endless Lies and Celebration of Gross Violations of the Law

    The EPO's noise site (formerly it had a "news" section, but it has not been honest for about a decade) is a torrent of lies, cover-up, and promotion of crimes; maybe the lies are obvious for everybody to see (at least EPO insiders), but nevertheless a rebuttal seems necessary

  5. The Letter EPO Management Does Not Want Applicants to See (or Respond to)

    A letter from the Munich Staff Committee at the EPO highlights the worrying extent of neglect of patent quality under Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos; the management of the EPO did not even bother replying to that letter (instead it was busy outsourcing the EPO to Microsoft)

  7. EPO-Bribed IAM 'Media' Has Praised Quality, Which Even EPO Staff (Examiners) Does Not Praise

    It's easy to see something is terribly wrong when the people who do the actual work do not agree with the media's praise of their work (a praise motivated by a nefarious, alternate agenda)

  8. Tux Machines is 17.5 Years Old Today

    Tux Machines -- our 'sister site' for GNU/Linux news -- started in 2004. We're soon entering 2022.

  9. Approaching 100

    We'll soon have 100 files in Git; if that matters at all...

  10. Improving Gemini by Posting IRC Logs (and Scrollback) as GemText

    Our adoption of Gemini and of GemText increases; with nearly 100,000 page requests in the first 3 days of Decembe (over gemini://) it’s clear that the growing potential of the protocol is realised, hence the rapid growth too; Gemini is great for self-hosting, which is in turn essential when publishing suppressed and controversial information (subject to censorship through blackmail and other ‘creative’ means)

  16. Another Gemini Milestone: 1,500 Active Capsules

    This page from Balázs Botond plots a graph, based on these statistics that now (as of minutes ago) say: “We successfully connected recently to 1500 of them.” Less than a fortnight ago more than 1,800 capsules overall were registered by Lupa, almost quadrupling in a single year

  17. [Meme] António Campinos and Socialist Posturing

    Staff of the EPO isn’t as gullible as António Campinos needs it to be

  18. António Campinos as EPO President is Considered Worse Than Benoît Battistelli (in Some Regards) After 3.5 Years in Europe's Second-Largest Institution

    The EPO's demise at the hands of people who don't understand patents and don't care what the EPO exists for is a real crisis which European media is unwilling to even speak about; today we share some internal publications and comment on them

  19. Media Coverage for Sale

    Today we're highlighting a couple of new examples (there are many other examples which can be found any day of the year) demonstrating that the World Wide Web is like a corporate spamfarm in "news" clothing

  26. EPO Staff Committee Compares the Tactics of António Campinos to Benoît Battistelli's

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) of the EPO talks about EPO President António Campinos, arguing that “he seems to subscribe to the Manichean view, introduced by Mr Battistelli…”

  27. Prof. Thomas Jaeger in GRUR: Unified Patent Court (UPC) “Incompatible With EU Law“

    The truth remains unquestionable and the law remains unchanged; Team UPC is living in another universe, unable to accept that what it is scheming will inevitably face high-level legal challenges (shall that become necessary) and it will lose because the facts are all still the same

  29. EPO Cannot and Will Not Self-Regulate

    The term financialisation helps describe some of the activities of the EPO in recent years; see Wikipedia on financialisation below

  30. [Meme] Germany's Licence to Break the Law

    Remember that the young Campinos asked dad for his immunity after he had gotten drunk and crashed the car; maybe the EPO should stop giving diplomatic immunity to people, seeing what criminals (e.g. Benoît Battistelli) this attracts; the German government is destroying its image (and the EU’s) by fostering such corruption, wrongly believing that it’s worth it because of Eurozone domination for patents/litigation
