The words "open source" are used sooooo cheaply these days. It's grotesque. #opensource is sooooo meaningless now.

Google si arricchisce profilandoci, principalmente usando i vostri account.
Poi spende 'sti soldi per finanziare organizzazioni che negano il riscaldamento globale e fanno pesanti azioni di lobby. L'attivismo si fa coi fatti non con le parole. A me sembra che ci siano troppi ambientalisti che utilizzano ancora l'email di google.

Chiudete i vostri account google!

GSoC is a perfect way for Google to keep activists quiet, because of the positive thought that, hey, they give back. Yes, Google also sponsors some key software, but it represents a tiny pile of money they can shuffle to tax savings. The cost/benefit in terms of image is illustrated by prominent free software activists saying publicly that GSoC is a good thing.

Both Google and Microsoft are enemies of free software, because they're enemies of freedom.

@CharredStencil Yes, here "permissive" means "submissive to market appropriation". Choosing a so-called permissive license is allowing corporations to restrict further cooperation : granting people the right to restrict your freedom is not permissive, it's masochistic.

On the other hand so-called "restrictive" licenses only restrict other people from restricting your freedom.

We should revolt against the inversion of meaning so prominent in contemporary propaganda. Orwell warned us.

@schestowitz Sorry, but no. A movement is not a movement if it depends on only one person, even if he founded it. The Free Software movement will still live on without Stallman as the president.

And the problem with Microsoft is not that they are using #Linux. Linux is for all. The bad thing is, that they use #OpenSource to lock people into their proprietary services. It doesn't matter if Azure or O365 is running on Linux or whatever if they put their customers into a vendor lock-in.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

Suffice to say, RMS is in a precarious position. His visit to #Microsoft is now being exploited by Microsoft apologists.

I'm doing a long article about it...
