@Kete Foy well, conservancy is still trying to fund their enforcement work and hasn't reached the target, gpl-violations remained in hiatus for a long time, and AFAIK those are the two groups who were doing most of the enforcing from the community POV.
I'm not saying that there aren't resources to do enforcing at all, just that there aren't enough to go against every violator who releases a sell-and-forget device like the ones above on the market.
The GNU Hackers' Meeting is a friendly, semi-formal forum to discuss technical, social and organizational issues concerning free software and GNU.
It is open to all people who have an interest in the GNU Project and its goals.
Some nice news from the #SocialWG: #ownCloud founder Frank Karlitschek joins the group. A big boost for the group to have a large #opensource project like this on board!
Just unboxed the x200 I ordered from http://minifree.org/. I got it in the mail. I must have unwrapped 50 feet of bubble wrap.... I have no worries about it being damaged in the hop across the pond.
I turned it on and it quickly flashed a drawing of a penguin hugging a gnu from the libreboot bios, and in 5 seconds it was booted and at a prompt for me to log in.
I logged in. Opengl was working, wifi was working, out of the box. What universe am I in???
This thing has 8GB (oops, said 16GB initially) of ram, a 1 terabyte hard drive. It's lightning fast. I can't believe this is a totally free system. I also embarassingly admit at how surprised I am at how nice the Trisquel install is on here.
I can't believe it. It runs so nicely, it's so light, it's so fast... it's the nicest machine I've ever owned.
What is going on??? I thought free software users were supposed to have a hard time with hardware? Hats off to Minifree, impressive frelling work. Whoa.
