The silver lining of the Google/Huawei debacle is that it opens the door to agnostic mobile devices. These devices, like conventional computers, will allow you to run any operating system and Linux flavour (because it's always going to be Linux) you want.

Una ventaja del debacle Google/Huawei es que abre la puerta a la era de los móviles agnósticos, dispositivos que, como los ordenadores convencionales, pueden ejecutar el sistema operativo y el sabor de Linux (porque todos van a ser Linux) que quieras.

Three conclusions to draw from #Google denying #Huawei access to software & the importance #FreeSoftware has for technology users, public bodies, and businesses alike:

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.

You can also follow its Mastodon account here:

@libreboot When vendors like @slimbook implement Coreboot_org in their laptops, they take us a step closer to a free, open, safer and more privacy-protecting machine.

The people at Coreboot_org create Free Software booting systems, the software that takes your computer form power up to operating system (Linux, BSD, Haiku, etc.) loaded.

The mission of @coreboot_org, and sister projects like @libreboot, is to minimise the possibility that sneaky, leaky proprietary software make its way into your machine, at least without you knowing.

@libreboot Cuando los proveedores de hardware como @slimbook implementan Coreboot_org en sus máquinas, nos acercan un paso más a ordenadores personales completamente libres, abiertos, más seguros y más cuidadosos con la privacidad los usuarios.

La comunidad Coreboot crea un sistema de arranque libre. Es decir, crean el software que controla tu ordenador desde el momento que lo enciendes hasta que carga el sistema operativo (Linux, BSD, Haiku, etc.).

La misión de Coreboot y de proyectos similares, como @libreboot es minimizar la posibilidad de que se te cuele software privativo lleno de agujeros y spyware en tu máquina, al menos sin que lo sepas.

I wrote about the role of brackets [ ] in command lines. In part 1 I look at how brackets can be used in globbing... Oh! You don't know what globbing is? Find out here:

And in part 2 I looked at how brackets [ ] are used as a command that evaluates conditions

Escribí sobre el papel que juegan los corchetes [ ] en la línea de comandos. En la primera parte explico como se usan para globbing... ¿Que no sabes lo que es el globbing? Pues lo explico aquí:

En la segunda parte vemos como puedes usar corchetes [ ] para evaluar condiciones:

In #KDEApps1904, Okular gets support to show and verify digital signatures on PDFs. This feature is essential to use KDE's document viewer for business or if you need to exchange documents in any official capacity... like when negotiating international peace treaties.

.@juliareda le da un buen repaso a los europarlamentarios por ignorar la voluntad popular y aprobar la directiva de copyright.

Los europarlamentarios han aprobado hoy la nueva directiva sobre copyright, incluyendo los nefastos artículos 11 y 13. Ésta es la lista de cómo votaron los parlamentarios españoles (fuente: El 26 de mayo hay elecciones. No digo más.

Remember that elections to the EU parliament will be held in May. Make sure your representative knows that, if they vote for the new law or even abstain, they will not get your vote in the Parliamentary elections.

The rise of movements we can only imagine now, but that could be similarly beneficial to that of Free Software, will be impeded by an Internet restricted by articles 11 and 13. It would be far better if articles 11 and 13 simply did not happen.

You can help stop this by getting in touch with your representative in the EU parliament. Find out how you can do this here:

This is our last chance to force a reverse of course of the approval of Articles 11 and 13 in the new EU copyright law.

These articles will impose restrictions so stringent they will seriously campen the free flow of information on the Internet, hindering the environment that helped give rise to all Free Software.

Although the new law contains provisions that protect Free Software projects and non-profits (like Wikipedia), this is far from future-proof.
