Microsoft: we love Linux
Media (paid by Microsoft): Microsoft loves Linux
Victim: Microsoft committed a crime against Linux
Media: that's not possible because Microsoft loves Linux

"Pearly Gates and Em-Ballmer
One promises you heaven and the other prepares you for the grave."

Ray Noorda, #Novell founder

#redhat and #canonical were both supportive of #mono agenda when #microsoft #novell were pulling the strings and we must never forget this betrayal
 
Greg K-H, who comes from #Novell to the Microsoft/Linux Foundation, does not speak of how #microsoft blackmailed #linux more than any other company and is still doing it this year
 
#microsoft killed longterm rival #novell

With "LOVE" of source

Next in line: #linux and #torvalds i.e. upstream
 
old: #idg on how #microsoft killed #novell before it did the same to #yahoo and #nokia -- get ready, Torvalds and Linux. Bend over. Microsoft "loves" you...
 
SJVN/ZDNet: open your butt cheeks, Microsoft is coming and it'll turn out >great< for #linux

Like it did for #yahoo
Like it did for #novell
Like it did for #nokia
 
...posted at 1AM on Sunday was this hint that #redhat had become more like #ibm (not the other way around) when it comes to #patent and #swpats policy (terrifying, it's #novell 2.0)

When one’s salary comes from a Microsoft-controlled #Novell (to work on #proprietary Microsoft projects) and then a Microsoft-funded #LinuxFoundation it’s not hard to see why one is inclined to cheer for #Microsoft
 
Remember that one of the key people behind the #microsoft #novell deal is now a Microsoft employee; his close colleague Nat is now attacking #github from the inside. He too works for Microsoft.
 
#suse CEO removed ('steps down'), to be replaced by #proprietarysoftware shill for #sap

Now chief of #opensuse resigns

In 2006 when #microsoft attacked #novell it knew just one thing: it'll doom SUSE
 
Opening the Door for Censorship: New Trademark Enforcement Mechanisms Added for Top-Level Domains https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/08/opening-door-censorship-new-trademark-enforcement-mechanisms-added-top-level can #novell take down #boycottnovell ?
 
I trust #ibm with #redhat and #fedora like I trusted #microsoft near #novell and #nokia

The relationship will be exploitative. We know how IBM makes a lot of money: #patent blackmail, mainframes...
 
“What we [Novell and Microsoft] agreed, which is true, is we'll continue to try to grow Windows share at the expense of Linux." Steve Ballmer http://blog.seattlepi.com/microsoft/archives/108806.asp how E.E.E. works. #novell #microsoft

The guy #microsoft hopes to replace Linus Torvalds with tells us what he thinks of the "freedom hippies" (he worked for #novell while Microsoft controlled it)
 
For those refusing to believe that #SAP holds #SUSE by the balls these days, well... read from start to end (I've watched SUSE and #novell closely forever)
 
Because of what I wrote about #novell I don't suppose #suse or #opensuse people would wish to clarify to me WTH they're doing with #sap but good journalists have a duty to investigate
 
#SUSE Said It Was Becoming Independent But Instead It Became Like an 'Asset' of #SAP ('German Microsoft '), Which is Hostile Towards #FreeSoftware http://techrights.org/2019/07/28/novell-suse-sap/ #novell
 
Nils Brauckmann, SUSE's CEO, Steps Down (The first of many goodbyes)

By paying companies like #Novell and #Canonical #Microsoft created the financial conditions that cultivate abandonment of #GNU / #Linux as a desktop platform. "Stay out of our turf, and you shalt be paid..."
 
#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.
 
So-called #gnu #linux vendors... fighting one another (like #novell did #redhat with Microsoft's help) instead of fighting #microsoft https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/07/fedora-31-snap-plugin-removal more: http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/125765
Fedora is ‘Disabling’ the Snap Plugin for GNOME Software
 
GKH has loads of control over #linux https://www.kernel.org/releases.html his loyal to #microsoft goes way back to his #novell days (when the company was indebted to Microsoft)

When #microsoft approached #yahoo it didn't say "we're going to destroy you!"

But it did.

When Microsoft approached #novell it didn't say "we're going to destroy you!"

But it did.

Same for #nokia and many others to come. "We come in peace... sniggering"
 
9) Curiously enough, I hardly have any "allies" inside the "Linux" Foundation, #zemlinpac

Curious, given what they call themselves... I'm a LONGTIME Linux advocate.

I do have sources inside #microsoft #epo and had some at #novell

At OSI's Board most are on my side
 
Ron #Hovsepian really doesn't like #techrights (siccing his attorneys at us earlier this year), so we've just made a new wiki page for him. http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Ron_Hovsepian #novell
 
New page: #JeffJaffe was a #Novell manager, who later joined #W3C and did some damage there, too. #DRM #EME
 
#microsoft nowadays does to #zemlinPAC (the "Linux" Foundation) what it did to #novell and to #nokia

What happens when people refuse to learn how #entryism works and how to counter it.
 
"Microsoft's Jim Allchin wanted to "kill" #Novell while pretending to be friendly."
Same thing #microsoft not does to #gnu #linux http://www.groklaw.net/articlebasic.php?story=20111021140854502
 
The concept of googlebombing and controlling the narrative (perception management) is poorly understood by people. #novell did this a lot when I ran #boycottnovell and now #microsoft does this with bloggers re #wsl

To quell/silence competing views, making them seem 'marginal'
 
#hovsepian killed #novell but he could not kill #suse
 
As a former #opensuse user myself (it was still called just #suse when I used it at home and at work), I'm sad to see that they never managed to recover from what #novell and #hovsepian did to them
 
#reddit was always really nasty towards the site #techrights and many of the comment came from #microsoft people (or #novell ). The site has flairs, but these do not include company logos (for one's employer, poisoning the audience against the messenger).
 
The #techrights #wiki regarding #epo is now approaching 3,500 articles -- I believe more articles than we wrote (in total) about #novell back in the 'ol days
 
#novell last CEO #Hovsepian cannot find a job.
 
Releasing a report a day before Easter
#Novell did it in 2007
Now #Barr does it
When you want journalists on holiday (not reading what's released
 
These letters from #novell CEO did not scare me; rather, they're a 'badge of honour' (that he suffers even a decade later, 9 years after looting and destroying the company). Super-rich people don't like #accountability for their actions.
 
I've often argued, e.g. when covering corporate and government corruption (e.g. #novell and #epo scandals), even if the publications do not help stop/lower the corruption to merely make the public aware of it is a start. As people react. Police? Rarely.
 
#Novell ’s last CEO, a former IBMer who just like #IBM decided to leverage #softwarepatents against the competition, has decided that siccing lawyers at us would be a good idea http://techrights.org/2019/04/14/ronald-hovsepian-vs-techrights/ #hovsepian
