The most pyrrhic victory in history

Coraline Ada Ehmke@CoralineAda
40,000 open source projects, including Linux, Rails, Golang, and everything OSS produced by Google, Microsoft, and Apple have adopted my code of conduct. You can make me have a bad day, but it doesn’t change the fact that we have won and you have lost.

Wanna bet? I just wish xir could convince Marvel and DC and IDW and Dark Horse to adopt xir's code of conduct too. The more completely an organization converges, the faster they will collapse.

This isn't a defeat for us, this is a vast horizon of opportunity being handed to us on a platter.

I don't really have the free time to do so right now. But ours runs and older version of Slackware, so it'll be safe for a quite a while. When I set up a new one I'll probably take a look at OpenBSD.

From Coraline's Code of Conduct:

---------
Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment
include:


* Using welcoming and inclusive language
------

And:
------
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:


* The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or
advances
* Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
* Public or private harassment
* Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a
professional setting

------


From Coraline's Tweet today:

"You can make me have a bad day, but it doesn’t change the fact that we have won and you have lost."


So a good case can be made that already Fruitcake has violated Fruitcake's own professed standards.


But of course.

For most things not related to desktop/workstation use, OpenBSD is quite excellent. I am a big fan of that project and the people behind it and encourage people to check it out. It's also SJW-resistant; Theo de Raadt would publicly humiliate anyone trying to push this.

That said, we should not be ceding ground to these people. We cannot run forever. This control over Linux should be fought at every point, especially given that if these people are able to push out Linus, Theodore Ts'o and the like, who knows what kind of shit code (probably filled with NSA backdoors) would be allowed into the kernel.

It's unusual for one person to be able to destroy so much. It's as if the USA nuked itself and the person responsible took to social media to celebrate.

There aren't that many people that have such a negative net value to the world. The open source George Soros has probably done more damage to the world than 50,000 average western people do good (at least in terms of creating value and other things that contribute to the future).

It's so difficult to argue against helicopter rides.

First you'll have to scare up a tremendous amount of money, for most of these devs are getting paid to work on the kernel, and following Linus would end that and their normal careers. Lots of infrastructure as well, from access to a z/OS IBM mainframe all the way down to various ARM single board computers. Plus this group would be cut out of advanced access to new toys, or warning of bugs like all the BSDs were with Meltdown and Spectre.

And after Linus was either blackmailed or cucked, I don't see anyone with sense following him, absent hims getting himself out of a blackmail situation and credibly explaining it all.

OpenBSD and FreeBSD are not connected. They are both descended from BSD Unix, or rather the parts left when Berkley agreed to remove the ATT/Novell code.

They share code, particularly drivers, and have the same binary interface, more-or-less, but organizationally they are completely separate. The project was started when Theo DeRaadt was thrown out of the NetBSD project for, essentially, being an asshole about security and vulnerabilities.

OpenBSD has a special emphasis on security, as opposed to FreeBSD's emphasis on hardware and application compatibility, and Linux's emphasis on universal adoption. An OpenBSD system on bootup has essentially zero system vulnerabilities. Of course then you have to enable services and install applications, you dirty user, but the system itself is as secure as they can make it.

Blogger Dirk Manly September 21, 2018 3:48 PM

OpenBSD
FreeBSD
and NetBSD are all forks of 4.4 BSD (The Berkeley license is less restrictive than the Copyleft type licenses. All it requires is that you retain the "Copyright [years] Regents of the University of California at Berkely" in whatever you distribute.
This is done by just declaring

char copyright[] = "Copyright [years] Regents of the University of California at Berkeley";

Indeed so!
I note that it took a rather long while to converge open-source software. I think this has to do with the more common mindset among programmers to apply the following metric: "Does the code in question correctly address the problem?" (i.e. it was more often about the thing being produced than the people producing it.)

Daniel Paul Grech Pereira wrote:So I guess this means I should stop using Rails AND Linux. Fuuuuuuug!
I'm somewhat interested in OS-development myself, along with some interests in applying formal-methods and theorem-provers on software. The Ada subset/provers called SPARK presents the community with a huge opportunity to be able to develop a core OS which is provably correct. Some research also did this with respect to type-safety, but there's a lot more that can be done than merely type-safety. (See this paper on the Ironsides DNS.)

Blogger Dirk Manly September 21, 2018 5:47 PM  

Proving that an OS is correct requires proving that the criteria used to judge correctness be correct. And there's no software in the world that's going to do that.

Yes, there are classes of errors that can't be eliminated. But there are attributes that can be checked, such as adherence to a particular security model, or (as the Ironsides paper shows) none of: remote-code execution, single-packet denial-of-service, uninitialized values, data flow errors, array bounds errors, and all runtime exceptions.

In my 40 years of publishing research papers I had never heard of the rejection of an already-accepted paper. And so I emailed Professor Senechal. She replied that she had received no criticisms on scientific grounds and that her decision to rescind was entirely about the reaction she feared our paper would elicit.

The recently appointed dean of Purdue’s school, Dr. Donna Riley, has an ambitious agenda.

In her words (italics mine): “I seek to revise engineering curricula to be relevant to a fuller range of student experiences and career destinations, integrating concerns related to public policy, professional ethics, and social responsibility; de-centering Western civilization; and uncovering contributions of women and other underrepresented groups…. We examine how technology influences and is influenced by globalization, capitalism, and colonialism…. Gender is a key…[theme]…[throughout] the course….

Right. Linux is widely used in corporate America. The corpos will stick with the brand, not with Linus — until well after the retards make a mess of it. At that point they’ll go with a BSD or something not “tainted” by association with somebody the greenhaired mental patient down the hall was upset about for some reason nobody understands.

I doubt that Linus will walk away from the brand anyway, until he’s forced out. I don’t think he understands what’s happening. He understands the kernel, and very little else.
