Posted in GNU/Linux, Microsoft, Windows at 3:14 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Windows in Cuba

Summary: 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

  1. Intel Treats Linus Torvalds as a Marketing Mascot

    Intel uploaded this video a couple of days ago (14:08-15:09); see the press reports below and the portion above (he doesn’t look like he wanted to be there, but maybe his bosses at Linux Foundation forced him to, as he's not truly in control of his job anymore)



  2. ZDNet Used to Write About 3 'Linux' Stories Per Day. But Now...

    The death of ZDNet is anything but official



  3. Matthew Garrett Admits Being a Transphobic Adult Before Choosing to Weaponise This to Defame and Then 'Cancel' People Who Aren't Transphobic

    Even in his very own words, his hypocritical campaigning is shown to be little but opportunism, misrepresenting vulnerable groups in the name of "protecting" them (and not even engaging politely, just defaming, cursing, stalking, trolling, threatening and blackmailing people)

  6. Reminder That Microsoft's GitHub Copilot is Run by a Criminal With Many Female Victims

    The person who started and led Microsoft’s GitHub Copilot is basically a criminal who attacks his own partners (at least 3 that we know of); why is the Open Source Initiative helping him? Because Microsoft pays for it.



  7. Open Source Initiative Controlled (Infiltrated) by Microsoft GitHub: Microsoft Bribes OSI to Justify GPL Violations Under the Guise of 'AI', Even Writes the OSI's Material

    This is why the OSI has done all those “AI” talks and podcasts lately; they cover up Microsoft’s attacks on Open Source (encouraging plagiarism) and they take money to do this (this is where the majority of the OSI's money goes)

  9. EPO Management Plans to Further Accelerate Grants of Illegal, Invalid, Fake European Patents Next Year

    The EPO has quit behaving like a patent office; it’s just issuing a lot of bogus patents to meet pre-defined “targets” and then it bullies examiners into blind compliance



  10. [Meme] EPO Would Probably Argue It's Just a Coincidence That “Women Have Received, on Average, Only 0.88 Steps to Every 1 Step Awarded to Men”

    Women barely get promotions at the EPO (“men are 54% more likely to receive a double step compared to women”); the EPO keeps storytelling to distract from these measurable facts



  11. Facts About the European Patent Office and Why Recruiting/Retaining Capable Examiners Isn't Possible Anymore

    A couple of new papers (or parts of a long paper) reveal an office responsible for granting patents which intentionally fails to do the job properly



  12. No Protection for Linux Offered by the So-called 'Linux' Foundation

    From a purely objective perspective, the so-called 'Linux' Foundation spends far more time/money protecting monopolies than it spends protecting Linux; hence, the organisation arguably does more harm than good to society



  13. Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) is Facilitating a Hostile Takeover by Corporations (Privatising Free Software)

    The Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC), which is trying to take ‘business’ and funds away from the FSF (also from SFLC, which sued it over that), helps IBM/Red Hat and the corporate front groups take over important GNU projects, typically under the guise of providing security and funds (financial security)



  14. The Linux Foundation is in No Position to Lecture Us (or Anybody) on Diversity

    The Linux Foundation cannot define and cannot understand how to support women and instead it trolls people; it also hires no black people and just like IBM it then accuses the community of being an impediment to diversity (community projects actually have more such diversity)

  19. IBM is Outsourcing Key Parts of GNU to Microsoft Linux Foundation

    GNU Toolchain is being given to Microsofters at the Linux Foundation after just over 3 years of coup against the FSF



  20. MICROSOFT Still the ENEMY of Linux and FOSS, But Somebody Has Very Selective Memory and Weak Critical Skills

    The latest video of "Nick" misleads on what Microsoft means to GNU/Linux users and Free software developers; I respond to some weak or false premises



  21. Get Away From Clowns (Clown Computing), They Will Only Betray and Hurt You at the End

    Corporations do not like people, they are just blindly obedient to shareholders and their personal interests; outsourcing your personal data (or business data, which impacts non-consenting subjects) to other companies is a self-harming if not outright suicidal move and we gather more and more evidence of this over time



  22. The Internet is Under Growing Threat of Being Cut Off (at Least Partially)

    War and conflict being escalated means that cables which connect continents are at threat of being severed without anyone being detected as accountable for it (this is incredibly difficult when dealing with cables that long), knowing how disruptive such an action would be as we've come to assume that the Internet is just "always there"



  23. Free Speech is Becoming as Scarce as Independent Journalism (Even at the FSF)

    Censorious tendencies and authoritarian leanings have put speech (both online and offline) at risk; it has gotten so bad that nowadays it's difficult to say what's true and factual if someone's feelings (or a clique) will be hurt



  24. Attempts to Legislate Against Free Software in Order to Elbow Such Software Aside

    There's not only a wave of attacks falsely attributing security issues to Free software (the media says "Open Source") but also new legislation in the United States, likely crafted by lobbyists, which discriminates against Free software whilst ignoring the elephant in the room, e.g. government back doors

    Microsoft apologists ignore the profound evidence of Microsoft's attacks on GNU/Linux



  28. Linux Today Back to Posting Spam Instead of News

    An early news aggregator for Linux (since the 1990s) is looking for a quick buck; There’s probably more of this to come (some advertising contract with ZDNet‘s parent company)

    Phoronix does a lot of promotional ads today while raising corporate money
