GNU, GPL, Open Source Now this is interesting. We see what is at its core a very valid concern, in practice not a problem to anyone, and, thanks to the tone of the press release, close to trolling. The Free Software Foundation Latin America is complaining about something that has been known for a while - there is some non-Free code stuck in the Linux kernel (mostly firmware). A valid issue of concern from an idealogical viewpoint, but sadly, the tone of the press release turns this valid concern into something close to trolling.

Dude, I literally posted that _one_ other time on this forum, and it was in the context of talking with werecatf about how much we dislike the man.

On the other hand, that second paragraph you will find in various shapes and forms in my posts here over the last few years. I have yet to have anyone challenge it in any way other then saying "I disagree" with nothing else to back it up.

I'll admit though, this time it was totally out of context (hell, right after I admitted to trolling). But posting something once out of context is not systematic.
