#Fedora Community Blog: Application service categories and community handoff
http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/125951 Community? #ibm does not know what this word means. Just money, lawyers, shareholders, #patents and #swpats
 
#fedora takeover by #ibm scares me. These smug Big Blues don't care about #gnu #linux on desktops (they sold ThinkPad too!). Almost more scary: Fedora Magazine put in the hands (chief editor) of former #microsoft staff. Times of flux.
 
#ibm #redhat sending us to #bezos or #amazon to buy books. Do they get referral money for it?
 
Suddenly I realise that many of my followers are #ibm employees. I still view them as #redhat people. They did not >choose< to work for IBM. I understand that. They didn't apply for an IBM job.
 
A week has passed and the #patent extremists at #IPO (BTW, #ibm FUNDS these extremists to fight FOR #swpats in the US) still say "António Campos" (can't spell keynoter's name)
 
#IBM continues its aggression against technology — a fact that’s even more distressing now that IBM calls the shots at #RedHat

#IBM is a Threat to the Internet, Not Just to Software Development (Due to #SoftwarePatents Aggression) http://techrights.org/2019/07/16/ibm-software-patents-aggression/ #swpats #redhat @fosspatents @zoobab @glynmoody
 
For now :-)
It has only been one week, mate... this is a site of #ibm boosters (for over a decade)
IBM Takes A Hands Off Approach With Red Hat
#ibm
 
Because of #redhat I am going to try to like #ibm (it was a much more benign and FOSS-friendly company a decade ago!), but each time IBM advocates and lobbies for #swpats I'll call them out on it. So should Red Hat people...
 
#ibm #redhat promoting #rhel #gnu #linux as #proprietarysoftware platform (see examples/use cases given)
 
#suse official blog advertises #proprietarysoftware from #sap on systems of its rival #redhat #ibm (will be weird working with IBM after the takeover)
 
But the bigger problem for open source dot com is that #ibm might not spare it because many positions expressed there, e.g. on #swpats and #patents in general, are not compatible with IBM's #patent #blackmail agenda
 
open source dot com cannot survive under the #ibm axe with offtopic cruft like this
#ibm
 
#swpats with a database somewhere disguised as "HEY AI" and "blockchain" for #uspto to grant fake #patents which #ibm then uses in bulk for #blackmail
 
NPU: Nvidia-Treiber bekommt Probleme mit dem Linux-Kernel - Golem.de

I wonder who other than Alex Oliva left #redhat https://twitter.com/BrideOfLinux/status/1150419699278196736 #ibm #rometty #IBMEvil
 
#ibm still evil, already evil, #redhat won't benefit from this association...
 
#ibm loves #linux (a #kernel ), but as far as #gnu Linux desktops stacks are concerned, it's like introducing a butcher to the potential of wool
 
#ibm is NOT an anti- #freesw company
But it's not a Free software company, either
Unlike #novell it's fair to say #redhat is mostly a "Free software company"
But it won't be under IBM. Not with the current IBM management in tact.
 
Later press coverage about IBM-Red Hat http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/125690#comment-21051 for record keeping. #techrights will be writing more about this subject in months to come. We observe closely what #ibm does next...
 
#ibm really panicked when people found out it hadn't changed since helping the Nazis with #concentrationcamps

So as soon as the report came out IBM spent weeks bombarding the media with puff pieces. What was the budget for this? A million bucks?
 
Is #RedHat the Right Medicine for #IBM ? https://finance.yahoo.com/news/red-hat-medicine-ibm-092814346.html IBM needs to replace its CEO with someone less aggressive
 
#Linux, the kernel, has become a corporate playground or a sandbox that’s used to upsell #proprietarysoftware , including surveillance http://techrights.org/2019/07/13/linux-control-over-users/ #microsoft #ibm #kernel

#ibm spent a fortune trying to bury this report, which is based on facts. #redhat #surveillance #nypd
 
First Fedora Program Management report under #ibm
FPgM report: 2019-28
 
And notice how Red Hat's first roundup (Friday) as an #ibm company cites #macAsay with his agenda of turning #freesw to #proprietarysoftware + #openwashing (marketing, like Alfresco, Novell and Mongo his former employers did)
 
#ibm says it "Defines Open, Hybrid Cloud Future"

When I see "cloud" I read as #surveillance and "hybrid" typically meant #proprietarysoftware + #openwashing (make something "open" for marketing purposes)
 
#fedora / #ubuntu or #ibm #redhat / #canonical feud carries on over standards for packaging. http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/125765#comment-21034 fight #microsoft instead, you morons! I wrote about it before http://techrights.org/2016/06/17/canonical-and-red-hat/

What is #Silverblue ? http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/125803 sounds almost like a potential rebrand of #fedora to appease #ibm and get it to keep it alive (I know this name predates the deal)

If #ibm does not distance itself from #watchtroll and other judge-bashing, anti-law front groups, then #redhat will be 0xdeadbeef to #freesw people
