Happy b-day Linux

Today it is 26 years ago that a Finnish student Linus Torvalds posted a message on usenet group comp.os.minix

Hello everybody out there using minix –
I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to get ready.

Today Linux runs on servers, desktops, laptops, netbooks, smartphones, TVsets, NAS and maybe a lot more

Happy b-day Debian GNU/Linux

Today it’s 24 years ago that the Debian Project was officially founded by Ian Murdock.

The Debian Community celebrates it’s birthday, Debian Day, on this day each year. (It has also been called Debian Appreciation Day.)

Debian is one of the most popular Linux distributions, and many other distributions have been created from the Debian codebase, including Ubuntu and Knoppix. As of 2016, DistroWatch lists 126 active Debian derivatives. The Debian project provides its derivatives with guidelines for best practices and encourages derivatives to merge their work back into Debian.

International Day Against DRM 2017

What is DRM?

Digital Restrictions Management is the practice of imposing technological restrictions that control what users can do with digital media. When a program is designed to prevent you from copying or sharing a song, reading an ebook on another device, or playing a single-player game without an Internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good; it prevents you from doing what would be possible without it. This concentrates control over production and distribution of media, giving DRM peddlers the power to carry out massive digital book burnings and conduct large scale surveillance over people’s media viewing habits.

If we want to avoid a future in which our devices serve as an apparatus to monitor and control our interaction with digital media, we must fight to retain control of our media and software.

Dukgo.com XMPP is shutting down

Dukgo.com XMPP is shutting down on May 9th, 2017.

Dukgo.com is the XMPP service of DuckDuckGo.com (the search engine who cares about your privacy). I had my accounts there for years. Lately their service was not so reliable as it used to be so I already created new XMPP accounts on another server (xmpp.is)
