Torvalds Fed Up With "AI" Passing Fad, Calls It "Autocorrect on Steroids."

posted by Roy Schestowitz on Apr 21, 2024

new video about this.

THE founder of the Free Software Foundation, Richard Stallman, spoke about "AI" hype last summer and his right-hand man, who works on Linux-libre (like a GNU version of Linux), used the term "Stochastic Parrots".

What about Mr. Linux, Linus Torvalds?

Well, he spoke about this days ago, but we still cannot find footage of it.

For now, instead, consider The Linux Experiment's latest episode (released mere hours ago about remarks from Torvalds; it says "Gentoo & Torvalds don't like AI", unlike the monopolies-run Linux Foundation, which continues to splatter and call everything "AI").

All this "AI" hype enabled elaborate valuation scams and the media was instrumental in enabling this web of scams.

Sadly, not only investigative journalism but journalism in general has perished, so when Microsoft gives bribes the Microsoft-connected media frames this as ingenuity and generosity.

As an associate of ours put it, "back then there was even investigative journalism at *all* magazines and newspapers."

Things have changed since then.

"Not even mild discussions of those," the associate said, "and certainly not about Microsoft The push has been to marginalize any questioning of Microsoft."

"Microsoft has been working for being above questioning since about 2009. Notice that the shops have many notebook and a few desktop computers, but not a single place in the store warns that they are pre-loaded with Vista11 or Vista10."

Remember when there were Microsoft leaks and subpoenas? For those to have actual impact we must have functioning press.

"Digging up those old articles which clearly state that Microsoft treats its contracts as trade secrets is worth a lot," the assiociate said. "Maybe crowdsource that?"

Even just the salaries needed to be leaked. Are they too "trade secrets"?

If someone out there has incriminating material that can illuminate the crimes of Microsoft (at present, not just the past), do let us know.

Things have gotten so bad that nowadays Microsoft pretends that it is speaking for Linux. Where's the push-back?
