Richard Stallman resigns from the board of the Free Software Foundation and his position at MIT.

Plus Microsoft's latest open source project, Oracle's new Linux distribution, and a release date for CentOS 8.

Links:

  • Richard M. Stallman resigns — Free Software Foundation — On September 16, 2019, Richard M. Stallman, founder and president of the Free Software Foundation, resigned as president and from its board of directors.
  • 2019: July - October Political Notes - Richard Stallman — I am resigning effective immediately from my position in CSAIL at MIT. I am doing this due to pressure on MIT and me over a series of misunderstandings and mischaracterizations.

  • GNOME relationship with GNU and the FSF – Liberal Murmurs — In my capacity as the Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation, I have also written to the FSF. One of the most important parts of my role is to think of the well being of our community and the GNOME mission. One of the GNOME Foundation’s strategic goals is to be an exemplary community in terms of diversity and inclusion. I feel we can’t continue to have a formal association with the FSF or the GNU project when its main voice in the world is saying things that hurt this aim.
  • Richard Stallman Does Not and Cannot Speak for the Free Software Movement - Software Freedom Conservancy — We are passionate about software freedom because we know it is a necessary precondition to safe and effective software that we can rely on in the long term. We fight for copyleft because it is a powerful tool to help us actually control the technology that is being increasingly embedded in our lives. The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom; our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. With these as our values and goals, we are appalled at recent statements made by the President and founder of the Free Software Foundation, Richard Stallman, in his recent email to the MIT CSAIL mailing list.

  • Open Sourcing MSVC's STL | C++ Team Blog — Today at CppCon 2019, we (the MSVC team) announced that we’re releasing our implementation of the C++ Standard Library (also known as the STL) as open source.

  • Oracle announces Oracle Autonomous Linux | ZDNet — Billed as the world's first autonomous operating system, Oracle Autonomous Linux provisions itself, scales itself, tunes itself and patches itself while running.

  • Autonomous Linux for Cloud | Oracle — Oracle Autonomous Linux executes automatic patch updates and tuning—without human interaction—improving IT staff productivity, security, and downtime. Combined with native Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services such as Oracle OS Management Service, it offers even more automation such as autoscaling, lifecycle management across pools, and monitoring.
  • Raspberry Pi Super Computer — What does a blue British telephone booth have to do with the World’s Largest Raspberry Pi Cluster? We’re not sure either but our extremely large take on a mobile device (it’s on casters) contains 1024 Raspberry Pis!

  • About/Building 8 - CentOS Wiki — The final release will be on September 24.
