Despite the fact that the #gpl licenses are more restrictive than the #bsd and #mit licenses, the corporations prefer use the #gpl, especially version 2, them learned to use the gpl to defend themselves primarily from (ironically) the community and to bully the smaller companies.

One thinks for a corporation the BSD is a better option but how many are the relevant projects based on bsd and that have never released the source code? For me are very few, for example I can only remember the Playstation OS.

#gpl3 is better than gpl2 and for that reason is avoided from the most of the commercial entities. Since the moment that the gpl has been distorted and has been used to sell closed services on top of gpl software I am starting to think that bsd might be a better license than gpl.

I heard an interview of a kernel dev of Freebsd and as well an interview of Redox creator and both point the fact that are interested in computer science not in legal issues, mit and bsd licenses eliminate those issues; from the other side Torvalds said the who cares for its code uses a gpl and #rms is above any suspects.

Those are free thoughts without any willing to breakthrough the truth but as a matter of fact, apparently, it seems that the bsd/mit licenses are lesser abused or distorted than the gpl ones. As matter of fact you can't do any abuse with a bsd/mit license but as any kind of software is in constant development corporations prefer defending its investment with the gpl so eventually if you want really make a project free of any abuse bsd/mit licenses are, paradoxically, better since the moment the corporations can take for free your job but them can't or won't afford the development them prefer avoid these very permissive licenses.

What do you think?

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #arch, #datafreedom, #foss, #freebsd, #lineageos, #linux, #opensource, #opsec, and #privacy. I wish everyone a good and solemn Armistice Day (Remembrance, Veterans, etc.). Thank you.

 
А тем временем #FreeBSD 12 пошла в стадию BETA4.
Это не характерно для процесса выпуска, поскольку обычно ограничиваются тремя итерациями для BETA и 2-3 для RC и, скорее всего, является отражением размеров внесённых в код измнений.
О них на днях говорил Андрей Фесенко, который, как никто другой, в русскоязычном сегменте сети держит руку на пульсе проекта.

Hi Guys,

the good old Bryan Lunduke doesn't need introduction, he uploaded today a new video and he is damn right!

It is clear that what we like and use every day is under a serious threatened. The Linux Foundation is pretty under control of the corporations that buy a seat and start to command, the last to buy a seat is so feared that was able to put the muzzle on the same Linux's creator.

Microsoft started to inoculate its bit of code inside Linux consistently in the last few months and this is only the beginning.

https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-working-on-porting-sysinternals-to-linux/

Unfortunately I noticed that people who work with Linux prefer avoid to take any position regarding the pressure that the corporations exert on Linux, even if Linux is borne as a free community project now is a consolidated business, and the devs don't want suffering a retaliation from these companies, they don't want miss job opportunities. I can understand that however this path of Linux, that doesn't grasp the freedom as inner core, eventually will bring issues even on them. It is already happened look to Linus Torvalds.

The community is not strong like before anymore. Before, when the corporations looked at Linux with suspicious, they need the support of the communities but now those companies seat in the cockpit and rule. Those companies already influence the kernel development, in fact it is a big fat piece of code with millions of lines. OK, monolithic kernel tends to be fatty but what it is happening to code optimization? Simply there is not time, put everything inside because time is money... and keep calm Linus.

In the free software realm users and corporations have different point of views that really aren't reconcilable, the latter especially doesn't care anything about freedom and when they can the first thing they do is a lock-in on their products.

We urgently need a plan b to escape from Linux to another kernel. When #debian started to port the BSD kernel everyone thought that was useless but now I regrets that we don't have choice beside Linux, and with the systemd broadly adoption we are stick with Linux, we can't escape. Right now there are not kernel alternatives to Linux but #FreeBSD and #haiku.

I would like to think that Redox might be a replacement but until the rust language is under the Mozilla patents it is not a reliable choice, we need #hurd. But we need that FSF stops playing with Hurd and develops a feasible roadmap and how much money they need to achieve this goal. A new kernel is way more important than the fight against the DRM at this point.

https://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/ng.html
There is not yet an official roadmap or a concrete specification; indeed, much of the work is research oriented
No way man we need to focus and stop playing, and overall we need to focus on new hardware!

We really need a serious discussion around this topic.

 
I love #FreeBSD and I'd like to learn more about it. I've only ever spun it up in a virtual machine to learn how it feels. I'm a big fan of #distrowatch.

FreeBSD 12.0-BETA2 + GhostBSD 18.10 RC2


A couple of interesting releases coming for the #BSD community.

#FreeBSD 12.0-BETA2
Release Announcement: ctober/089897.html" target="_blank">https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-stable/2018-October/089897.html

#GhostBSD 18.10 RC2
Release Announcement: https://www.ghostbsd.org/18.10_RC2_release_announcement

FreeBSD set up can be very technical while GhostBSD is much easier with an installer if your thinking of giving them a test. For a novice I would recommend GhostBSD out of the two and FreeBSD for the little more advanced.

#TrueOS follows FreeBSD "TrueOS follows FreeBSD-CURRENT, with the latest drivers, security updates, and packages available." https://www.trueos.org/more-on-trueos/ so if your not to technical and want to try FreeBSD you could always install TrueOS that is much easier and comes with an installer.

Version 1.0 des unixoiden MidnightBSD unterstützt erstmals Ryzen-Hardware, lässt sich von ZFS starten und übernimmt einige FreeBSD-Funktionen. #BSD #FreeBSD #MidnightBSD #OpenSource #OpenBSD #Unix

 
Сроки выхода релиза 12 версии #FreeBSD сдвинули по времени с тем, чтобы успеть должным образом протестировать все аспекты втянутого в базовую систему релиза #OpenSSL 1.1.1. Напомню, вместе с ним появится штатная поддержка #TLS 1.3.
Всё правильно сделали.
At present, the project branch used to update OpenSSL to version 1.1.1 is expected to be ready to merge to head at some point early next week.
As such, to err on the side of caution, the branch point of stable/12 is now planned for October 12 in order to plan for at least one ALPHA build before beginning the BETA build phase of the release cycle.

FreeBSD Desktop – Part 16 – Configuration – Pause Any Application


Bild/Foto
After using UNIX for so many years I knew that I could freeze (or pause) any process in the system with kill -17 (SIGSTOP) signal and then unfreeze it with with kill -19 (SIGCONT) signal as I described in the Process Management section of the Ghost in the Shell – Part 2 article. Doing it that way for the desktop applications is PITA to say the least. Can you imagine opening xterm(1) terminal and searching for all Chromium or Firefox processes and then freezing them one by one every time you need it? Me neither.

Fortunately with introduction of so called X11 helper utilities – like xdotool(1) – it is now possible to implement it in more usable manner.
