If you still think that #redhat (the company, not RHEL the distribution) brought nothing to our desktop, makes everything behind closed doors and does not matter to you.
Hey, this is the stuff my team works on!
InnerSource is a critical step in the larger goal of being fully open source. So, the ringing endorsement and participation of Red Hat within the InnerSource Foundation means that we are a good place. A good place that values all types of contributions. All types of collaborations. All forms of engagements.
It's hard to *contain* my excitement for this news about container management from #RedHat. 🤭
There are tons of people working on making container orchestration and management much easier and more secure every day and I'm proud to work with them. ♥️ 📦
hehe, #redhat memo-list has 78k unread in the folder 😀 No wonder I prefer just chats...
Funny how large enterprise #Linux deployments spend time switching to a desktop environment which resembles classic Windows.

Welcome @opensourcenet 👋 💚
🙶The Open Source Initiative (OSI) has become the new home for the former Opensource.com news site. Writers and editors formerly contributing to Opensource.com will continue their work under the umbrella of the OSI, posting content at a domain owned by the OSI: OpenSource.net.
OpenSource.net launched in response to the halt of Opensource.com operations by supervising entity Red Hat, which supports the move.🙷
Today, 18th September, the process started some years ago and accelerated by layoffs in Spain will bring employee representatives to the country, with the elections happening today.
No matter who gets elected... the Red Hat Union Representative in Spain will become a reality to protect employee interests and use an Open approach to make it a better workplace.
Linux boot times speed-up at works! 🚀
"We aim to capitalize on the cryptographic checks already performed on the kernel and initrd images during the secure boot process.
As a result, we can significantly improve the boot speed without compromising system security." ~Alessandro Carminati (Red Hat)
Be cautious with software choices. Everywone is talking about Unity, but remember what happend to Audacity and Red Hat, open source is not shielded from corporate greed either. Research the background, maintenance, and terms/licenses of your tools. If you see something that you dislike there, you may want to find an alternative, here's a website for that:

A thread with some facts about mental health and well-being at work.
In 2022, Deloitte surveyed 2100 employees, managers, and C-Suite executives in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia as part of their Well-Being at Work Survey.
- one-third of employees struggle with mental health and well-being
- while executives are not exempt from mental health issues, they underestimate how much their employees are struggling
Warmly recommended reading.

In contrast, take Regata OS and Gecko Linux, both based off of openSUSE, and although SUSE has made it clear it is an independent distro and officially not supported, they have gone out of their way to help the developers!
See for yourself on GitHub.
Although the developer of Gecko Linux, is not as active, there have been members of SUSE who aided them in improving their spin of openSUSE
That's the difference.

The difference between Red Hat & SUSE is Red Hat never truly embraced the open source community
Take the Nobara Project, for example. It's 1 guy trying to make a gaming spin of Fedora. Both Fedora & Red Hat have numerously told the poor guy he's on his own & anytime people have been spotted using Nobara, Fedora & Red Hat have often discouraged the use of the spin
It's one thing to say, it is unofficial and not supported. It's another to shun people

Laziness is one of the three great virtues of any programmer according to Larry Wall, author of the book Programming Perl. Consequently, it is no surprise that Mario Fusco, senior software engineer at #redhat , highlighted the power of lazy evaluation in Java, which represents an interesting approach for code optimisation. The two ideas are in fact related: lazy programmers tend to delay things until they are really needed; and lazy evaluation consists of delaying the evaluation of an expression until its value is needed.
Shocked! What black magic is this? How come #SUSE #openSUSE is able to determine its future with this thing called "survey"? I thought distros (like #redhat #fedora) want to figure out what to focus on need to install spyware disguised as telemetry software using dark patterns.

Today is Labor Day for our American colleagues, and it's a perfect occasion to discuss reasons for unionization.
Workers' productivity has steadily grown in the past 45 years, yet their pay hasn't kept up with this increase. The workers generate more profits each year, but these profits do not return to workers proportionally to their productivity levels.

We were grateful to have @rockylinux and @almalinux join Red Hat and @centos in a panel discussion on upstream collaboration in Fedora. Here's a recording of that session from Flock 2023 if you missed it!

When Red Hat was a smaller corporation, it was common to see the following quote — attributed to Mahatma Gandhi — used internally and in external marketing:
"First they ignore you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they fight you.
Then you win."
Interestingly, this quote didn't originate from Gandhi at all. It originated from Nicholas Klein, a trade union activist addressing the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America.
Hi Fediverse! We're a collective of international workers at Red Hat organizing for fair working conditions.
We'll be using this platform to discuss a range of issues in our industry, strengthen solidarity between tech workers, and dispel myths when it comes to unionizing.
If anyone's interested, I'll be streaming live with Mr. John Spinks later today. We're covering Compliance with Insights.
This is part of a mini-series about Insights. If you haven't looked at insights in a while, its worth a watch!
Question for the Linux nerds: What pre-installed CLI program would you run to view info about your system - e.g. OS version, kernel version, Processor, memory, display
Assume neofetch is not installed.
Is there something better than uname?
Include your distro in your response.
Dear #RedHat, no, your unsubscribe form shouldn't require company, department, job role, country, and language to unsubscribe. Really. Really really.
Heck, you shouldn't even need my first and last name to stop sending me stuff.
After #Redhat and #Hashicorp changes in their #opensource policies, I'm now looking with suspect and reviewing all single-company #FOSS projects without a clear story of multiple contributions, without a foundation based governance and/or subject to copyright #hijacking for third parties contributions. (as the infamous MySQL one).
If you are strongly depending on such a project, it is time to sleep worried. We are living in very strange times.
To those who are concerned that I'm going to talk about nothing but #Hashicorp for weeks, don't be. I was harder on #RedHat, not because I think that Red Hat had done something worse (they didn't), but rather that I frankly care about Red Hat more. The shop where I work is also a Hashicorp customer, but that relationship is far more expendable, IMO, and I had hopes that some in Red Hat would hear and consider feedback where I generally don't believe that to be the case for Hashicorp.
Its almost as pointless as Microsoft offering Government Officials access to the Source Code of their Products but banning people from taking notes or even have any competent auditor accompany them...
I don't know who needs to hear this.. Stop building your businesses and/or way of making money on "free" land.
Pick a pimp and pay them and go make some money!
@geerlingguy *nodds in agreement*
Were the #GPLv3 not ideological garbage but actually comitted to #FLOSS remaining #public, it would've chosen #PublicAccessibilit to code as priority over illegally demanding surrender of all #Patents and #IP.
In fact, #grsecurity #paywalling the code was the first warning shot, and when that went through, others like #Elastic and #MongoDB and now #RedHat saw that they could get away with #paywalls on #FLOSS...
@jwildeboer @SUSE @ubuntu @opensuse @SolarisDiaspora I think "Just clone #RHEL!" is kinda bad and unsustainable as a business.
Killing #CentOS and barring #OracleLinux was more of "glock-leg" / "shooting themselves in the foot" of #RedHat and IMHO it should get RHEL to decline in adoption similar to #grsecurity when they #paywalled access to their #SourceCode.
Of RHEL-derivatives, only Rocky is probably a true rebuild now (like old CentOS was). AlmaLinux is merging fixes before RHEL, and advertises ABI compat, not bug compat, so there's probably no reason whatsoever to switch to AL if you don't use AL already. Oracle I'm not touching with my long metric pole. SUSE's response is a guess yet at this point, I haven't seen technical details.
Dust hasn't settled because we haven't seen what SUSE will do after their CEO's blogpost.
The problem with RHEL family is, people chose RH for stability, not for convenience (technically RHEL is a poor distro, it requires effort to glue packages together, which in Debian is already done by distro). That stability promise was violated twice (Stream 2,5 years ago and g.c.o now), so unless you need RHEL compat for some reason, I'd say you stick to Debian.
Is #CentOS still considered a ~sane choice for infra work?
Is it something to migrate off of?
I am mostly a Debian person, and I am not following the RedHat/CentOS space too closely. Can anyone help out here?
RedHat, Canonoical, and Valve are net positives to FOSS and essential to the pursuit of open technology.
All of these companies contain aspects I dislike. Valve is a digital market monopoly. Redhat has extreme profit incentives and poor communication skills. Ubuntu is leaning towards proprietary back-ends and limiting user choice in some projects (snaps).
Yet, these companies fund developers and enable them to work improving #FOSS projects. These developers would not have been able to contribute the same amount of time into FOSS if they were doing it for free. Developers need to afford food and rent. A significant portion of #Linux development is bankrolled by these these titans of open technology.
It is essential to understand the source of controversy during a moment of drama, and direct steady and well thought criticism at the corporate structure responsible for policy decisions, not than the individual developers with minimal or no policy influence.
1. I will meme #RedHat for them shooting themselves in the foot and alienating the Linux community, but I am grateful to the RedHat devs who have dedicated time and effort improving Linux and #Fedora. Their contributions are so significant and voluminous, It is difficult to quantify the sheer amount of work they have contributed upstream.
2. I won't use #Ubuntu due to differences of opinion, but I still respect the time and creative energy #Canonical has spent improving the UI/UX of Debian and making Linux accessible to a larger population. Ubuntu is not my cup of tea, but it's a cup of tea that can reach people that have never tried tea before. Ubuntu is certainly a better cup of tea than the raw sewage of a Microsoft or Google operating system.
3. I am hesitant of #Valve because I am wary of being dependent on a monopoly for media ownership, but their open source and open hardware contributions have ushered in an era of Linux Gaming that was previously non-existent. They have demonstrated sound ethics in most of their policy choices, so I invest a significant degree of trust and gratitude in them, even though I remain skeptical of their digital asset monopoly.
It is disingenuous to label RedHat or Canonical as evil. Neither company is anywhere close to the dystopian nature of Microsoft or Google.
It's a matter of when, not if, companies will make poor decisions. At the scale of these entities, problematic decisions are bound to occur more frequently as policy decisions become disconnected from their impact on the community.
Lately, both RedHat and Canonical have made unwise policy decisions. Yet, I believe the good of their developers' contributions far outweighs the bad of their recent policy decisions. That balance could change in the future, but for now, both are still a solid net positive to the FOSS ecosystem.
TLDR; Reality is rarely black and white. It's often a shade of Gray.
