People can have audio/visual communication in real-time with someone else that's incredibly far away without having to wait minutes/hours/days/weeks/months/years.

Ugh. It's almost as if he got awarded for being a sellout.

History Of Operating Systems
2017-04-04T15:04:59Z via Identi.ca Web To: Public CC:I'm working on paring down my belongings. Does anyone want a poster about the history of operating systems? (GNU is in there, of course.) It's several feet wide so it needs space. Contact me and I'll mail it to you, gratis.
2017-04-02T17:30:21Z via Identi.ca Web To: Public CC:I see there is an "Open Letter to the Free Software Community" on https://libreboot.org/unity.htmlHooray for more cooperation and less proliferation!
Similarly, we would like to work closely with librecore, another project working to deblob coreboot, whose team includes Damien Zammit. Once librecore matures, libreboot plans to switch to librecore in lieu of our current deblobbed fork. That is, there will be less duplication of effort; instead of competing with librecore, libreboot will complement it.I'm not touching this project. After the fireworks that happened, I don't want to be involved with it. It is good to see that there is new management although the issue of substance abuse being addressed openly disturbs me greatly.
After the dramatic break from the FSF, frankly I still want to stand back and "observe only". Lability can be a liability.

Since then, we have switched to using blobs of the Windows kernel to boot." I am just confused at this point. Is this a weird trolling activity?Given https://libreboot.org/#a-message-from-leah-to-further-complement-alyssas-submission , I take that back. I'm glad people want to go back to code.
