Attacking #freesw is very big business. Quite a few #microsoft moles and brigadiers have become rich doing that; among them:
 
#adobe keeps sending its #proprietarysoftware stooge #macasay to support turning #freesw into #proprietarysoftware (sometimes Adobe even pays the publishers to do this https://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-cloud-is-the-best-defense-against-aws/)

The fight to keep open source truly “open” ⁠— open source providers need to stand up
http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/124925 #freesw under attack from new threats, #fsf hardly responding to it IMHO
 
#freesw = geeks writing code and #sharing their work to eliminate #microsoft #monopoly or #gafam abuses

OpenSource® = corporations lodging little pieces of code on Microsoft’s site (GitHub) to compete with the above group by assimilation tactics
 
Forbes is, as expected, suggest #freesw should become more like #proprietarysoftware (because you know who owns and controls Forbes)
 
#securityboulevard still acting as amplifier of #blackduck and #synopsys attacks on #freesw (I see it every day). The founder of the site has long attacked FOSS and Black Duck came from #microsoft
 
After the founder of #bitnami sold the company to one #gpl violator and #freesw enemy his joins another, #microsoft

Bitnami gone rogue, likely defunct now. Working against FOSS.
 
The #opensource 'movement' (scare quotes as it's industry-led, hardly a movement) did to the #freesw (freedom) movement what #linux did to #gnu

They ride the wave, they exploit the work, but they dismiss/mock their roots. #corporatemedia helps them.
 
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) was a lot more suitable a label, predating the time #opensource was devised to bury or distract from #freesw

It referred to actual sources. OSI reduced that to mere availability of code. Not the other benefits.
 
#opensource is fantastic! For corporations. They put something out there, based on their #proprietarysoftware (with some #openwashing ), hoping that volunteers will make commits, improving their proprietary malware for them.

#freesw on the other hand...

i hope he reads techrights-- there are a number of new things there about microsoft and increasing control of #freesw that make me think of him.

i wish he used a free license on his website.

#microsoft and its front groups in the #eu (this is well documented by the way) devised a bundle of methods/lies to paint #freesw as #antitrust issue, #monoply abuse etc. #sco had attempted similar things.

I've worked for nearly a decade in a #freesw services company; we have lots of clients, hundreds of servers we look after. In this whole time the only #security incident we have was a >misconfigured< #jboss instance; no data compromised, just DDOS.
 
Last night I patched 7 servers; #corporatemedia likes us to think that because there's some bug in some #freesw (Free software), and unlike #proprietarysoftware those are NOT back doors (there by design), it's thus the end of the world.
