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.

@taoeffect While working at Google, I used #Cinnamon for a few years. It was unambitious but stable and usable. A bit of an evolutionary dead-end though.

At SpaceX, I've been using #XFCE on an ancient Ubuntu LTS. It was also more stable and usable than contemporary versions of #GNOME and #KDE.

Funny how large enterprise #Linux deployments spend time switching to a desktop environment which resembles classic Windows.

Clearly, #RedHat and #Canonical weren't listening to their customers.

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.

Some takeaways:
- 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

#UnionizeTech #MentalHealth #Unionize #Unions #RedHat

A graph is titled "Around one out of three employees and executives are constantly struggling with fatigue and poor mental health."
A graph is displaying data collected in the survey.
The data demonstrates that 47% of employees and 36% of C-suite said that always or often felt exhausted, 42% of employees and 41% of C-suite said they always or often felt stressed, 40% of employees dn 35% of C-suite said they felt overwhelmed, 30% of employees and 24% of C-suite said they felt lonely, 26% of employees and 23% of C-suite said they felt depressed.

A graph is titled "The C-suite significantly underestimates how much employees are struggling with their well-being"

The graph displays columns that represent the responses from employees and C-suite on four topics about well-being. Employees were asked to report their own well-being, C-suite were asked to assess their employees' well-being. 
According to the graph 89% of C-suite assessed their employees' physical well-being as excellent or good, but only 65% employees reported that about themselves. 84% of C-suite assessed their employees mental well-being as excellent or good, 59% of employees reported that about themselves. 84% of C-suite assessed their employees social well-being as excellent or good, 51% of employees reported that about themselves. 81% of C-suite assessed their employees' financial well-being as excellent or good, 40% of employees reported that about themselves.

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

My interview with Techstrong TV

Red Hat Developer Red Hat

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.

Some facts:
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.

Relevant read:

#Unions #Unionize #UnionizeTech #LaborDay #WorkersRights #RedHat

A graph displays two lines representing productivity level and a typical worker's compensation. The lines start to diverge at around the 1980 year mark, and the gap keeps growing. The productivity line goes up, the compensation line grows slower and stays closer to the 1980 level.

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.

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.

@ian yeah, but with shit like "Subscriber Agreements" [see #grsecurity and #RedHat] these "Rights" are literally useless as people can't really share the code or do anything with it.

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.

#redhat has had their moment, #canonical recently, #hashicorp touching the water. Them suckas don't care about community more than the success of their business.

@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...

It's sickening.

@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.

I think it's a bad move even tho no #GPL version demands said sourcecode to be publicly accessible to everyone.

@jwildeboer Personally, I think it's kinda bad that #RedHat was kinda becoming the de-facto monopolist.

Tho it's not as if @SUSE and @ubuntu could've made better offerings before, and I still think that unless one has a harsh #Vendor #LockIn #Ubuntu and @opensuse are the better options.

I just wished #SUSE and espechally #Canonical were more commited of building good distros than weird shite like this...

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.

#centos #redhat #sysadmin

Hey #SysAdmin folks, now that the dust has settled, what is the wisdom of the crowd on how the recent #RedHat kerfuffle affects #CentOS long-term?

Is #CentOS still considered a ~sane choice for infra work?
Is it something to migrate off of?

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.
