It Took Campinos Three or More Years to Undo Illegal Battistelli Actions on Boards of Appeal and Strike Regulations (Only After Losing at ILO-AT!), But He Does Not Mention That

Posted in Europe, Patents, Videos at 4:23 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“It should not be forgotten, that the internal review of the contested strike regulations, other strike related decisions and the social “democracy” rules took place during Campinos’ tenure. He decided to maintain them and openly defended them.”Comment posted days ago

Summary: Let’s all remember that as the EPO‘s so-called ‘President’ António Campinos (Monopoly Tony) vigorously defended completely unlawful actions of Benoît Battistelli until courts compelled him to stop doing that (Strike Regulations); notice how, in the video above — a portion of this full clip from several months ago — he did not bother mentioning that for 3.5 years that he had “led” the Office the Boards of Appeal were in exile, in direct violation of the EPC, yet nobody is being held accountable for it

Lennart Poettering versus backward compatibility or API stability
Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 4.0

Summary: Recently-uploaded ELCE 2011 clip shows a panel with Linus Torvalds, Alan Cox, Thomas Gleixner, Paul McKenney, and Lennart Poettering (relevant to novelty or perceived novelty [1, 2] that mostly degrades the experience of longtime users, e.g. Wayland and systemd)

Notice how, some time along the way, Torvalds violates the Linux Foundation‘s Code of Conduct by using a "bad" word (in the above clip I actually find Lennart Poettering to be more provocative, rude, even trollish; words are just “style” and one can ‘politely’ abuse people). Torvalds would not risk this again (he hasn’t for years); bad for the health, so to speak…

Linus Torvalds health

Yes, he used to look a lot healthier before being sent to "manners" therapy for merely governing his own project (as he had very successfully done for nearly 30 years).

Notice how Torvalds cautions about certain features becoming a security baggage/liability — to the point of necessitating painful removal. In recent years a lot of what the corporate media calls “Linux” holes are in fact critical bugs in systemd. In the video, which is timeless, one can see who’s being rude.
