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

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
 
'Poor' (Multi-Millionaire) #Novell CEO, Who Colluded With Steve #Ballmer Against GNU/Linux, is Trying to Censor #Techrights http://techrights.org/2019/04/14/ronald-hovsepian-vs-techrights/ #hovsepian #slapp
 
Can't believe that after all these years I'm going to use the Ron #Hovsepian category again. In #techrights ... about his SLAPP efforts. #censorship #novell
 
Last week I received several threatening letters over my writings about #novell (yes, from one decade ago). I did not comply. I won't. I will publish something about it soon. I'm checking first whether corporate media is interested in such a SLAPP story. #censorship
 
Two main themes to cover this weekend in #techrights
1) SLAPP I got this past week in relation to #novell
2) more on the LF, which I call #zemlinPAC and RMS now considers "corrupt" (he reads my site)
 
How #SUSE Benefits From #RedHat Acquisition https://www.tfir.io/how-suse-benefits-from-red-hat-acquisition/
former #ibm manager, then #novell CEO #hovsepian , now siccing his lawyers on me...
How SUSE Benefits From Red Hat Acquisition
 
Reminder: #hovsepian the last #novell CEO came from #ibm (which is buying #redhat soon)
 
A story on #hovsepian coming soon. #novell last CEO trying to delete history from my site, #techrights
 
#hyperV was developed and shoved into #linux (the driver) by Greg K-H while #novell paid him his salary after it had been paid by #microsoft

He has since then been made full-time #zemlinPAC staff

Think about it. History:
 
Michael Meeks "Pleased to see SUSE's success in the news." Because #novell paid his salary for a long time (which is why I had disputes with him)
 
I do not bash #redhat or #canonical and it's different from the #novell thing; in #gnu #linux we don't have >blind< loyalty and when bad things are done we exercise free speech rights to call these out. Unlike in a corporate environments (gags/PR/CoC)...
 
#Canonical Shifts Its Fiscal Year Ahead Of Likely IPO
http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/112741 #ubuntu

My take: Makes it easier for #microsoft to buy shares if not take over (Board and beyond), sabotaging and confusing us further, #nokia or #novell style

#entryism a real risk
 
I have been tempted to email Torvalds about the Linux Foundation (we have not corresponded in nearly a decade), but I doubt any good would come out it. #microsoft #entryism is engulfing any good #gnu #linux can yield. See #novell
 
Why #novell took #ximian (with the new CEO of #github ) as explained by Novell itself
http://techrights.org/2006/12/27/stafford-masie-presentation-at-citi-forum-transcript/
#entryism #mono #microsoft
 
#microsoft used #ximian (Friedman) to do to #novell
What it later used #xamarin (Friedman) to do to #robovm et al
And is now doing with #github (Friedman) to do #zemlinPAC et al

#entryism is standard precedue of #billgates (still Microsoft's real chief)
Remember #java wars?
 
I not only warned about #zemlinPAC and #zemlin for a while. I had warned about it for over 12 years. Back then some people thought I was exaggerating. #novell #nokia etc. = #entryism
 
Nat Friedman contributed to the death of #novell so it's a person who's experienced in destroying entire companies, not just losing developers

#microsoft #entryism against #freesw is not new. It started >at least< 12 years ago: the #novell #patent deal.
 
#nokia and #novell used to be top #linux contributors.

It's no coincidence that after #microsoft meddling all of that stopped.

When Microsoft intervenes it tries to plant seeds of destruction and break things, not help

For DECADES now
 
By the time #microsoft completes the takeover of #github all the major >and< active projects will hopefully have been gone. In a sense, Microsoft might be happy about it as it only strives to disrupt #freesw status quo. See #novell #nokia etc.
 
After #microsoft had committed many crimes against #netscape (found guilty, too) it spent a fortune and ages (decades) trying to rewrite history, calling it "self-inflicted" etc. #deletionism #revisionism etc. Now #nokia and #yahoo #novell etc.
 
You have leaped a step there!
They did not even stop collecting 'protection' money from #linux
But they have now bribed #novell #suse #redhat #canonical and #zemlinPAC #OSI etc. ('hush money) so who will complain?

But another company dies, just like #novell #corel #yahoo #nokia etc.

#microsoft is a 'serial killer'
