  • Richard Stallman vole au secours des whistleblower et invite à réduire l'espionnage de la NSA en abandonnant les logiciels propriétaires

    Richard Stallman vole au secours des whistleblower et invite les internautes à réduire l'espionnage de la NSA en abandonnant les logiciels propriétaires« Si les whistleblower [N.D.R. : lanceurs d'alerte] comme Edward Snowden n'osent pas révéler les crimes et mensonges, nous perdons le dernier bastion de contrôle sur nos gouvernements et institutions. C'est pourquoi les méthodes de surveillance qui permettent de savoir qui a parlé avec un journaliste sont très abusives. » dit Richard Matthew Stallman.Le...

  • "Ubuntu : un logiciel espion" pour Richard Stallman, qui s'insurge contre l'intégration de la recherche Amazon dans l'OS

    « Ubuntu : un logiciel espion » pour Richard Stallman le père de GNU estime que l'intégration de la recherche Amazon dans l'OS est préjudiciable au libre La version la plus récente d'Ubuntu (12.10 Quetzal Quantal) intègre une fonctionnalité polémique permettant d'afficher des suggestions de produits à acheter sur Amazon aux utilisateurs. Concrètement, lorsque l'utilisateur lance une recherche d'un fichier, une application, etc. (en local ou sur le Web) à partir de son bureau, des liens de suggestions Amazon vers des sujets rattachés aux mots-clés saisis apparaissent avec les résultats. Bien que cette fonctionnalité soit un moyen pour Canonical de financer le projet, elle e...

  • What did Stallman mean in this quote about implementing other languages in Lisp?

    - by Charlie Flowers
    I just read the following quote from Stallman as part of a speech he gave many years ago. He's talking about how it is feasible to implement other programming languages in Lisp, but not feasible to implement Lisp in those other programming languages. He seems to take for granted that the listeners/readers understand why. But I don't see why. I think the answer will explain something about Lisp to me, and I'd like to understand it. Can someone explain it? Here's the quote: "There's an interesting benefit you can get from using such a powerful language as a version of Lisp as your primary extensibility language. You can implement other languages by translating them into your primary language. If your primary language is TCL, you can't very easily implement Lisp by translating it into TCL. But if your primary language is Lisp, it's not that hard to implement other things by translating them." The full speech is here: http://www.gnu.org/gnu/rms-lisp.html Thanks.

  • How can I uninstall SQL Server Express in Windows Server 2008

    - by Stallman
    I installed Windows Server 2008 as the OS, but I dislike the SQL Server Express which it provide by default at all. So I changed to SQL Sever 2008 Enterprise. Here comes the problem, I don't know how to remove the SQL Server Express edition. In the Programs and Features under Control Panel, I can't find the installation of SQL Server Express which is provided by OS in default. What I can see is only the SQL Sever 2008 Enterprise edi. Any suggestion?

  • How to create nested directories in PhoneGap

    - by Stallman
    I have tried on this, but this didn't satisfy my request at all. I write a new one: var file_system; var fs_root; window.requestFileSystem(LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT, 1024*1024, onInitFs, request_FS_fail); function onInitFs(fs) { file_system= fs; fs_root= file_system.root; alert("ini fs"); create_Directory(); alert("ini fs done."); } var string_array; var main_dir= "story_repository/"+ User_Editime; string_array= new Array("story_repository/",main_dir, main_dir+"/rec", main_dir+"/img","story_repository/"+ User_Name ); function create_Directory(){ var start= 0; var path=""; while(start < string_array.length) { path = string_array[start]; alert(start+" th created directory " +" is "+ path); fs_root.getDirectory ( path , {create: true, exclusive: false}, function(entry) { alert(path +"is created."); }, create_dir_err() ); start++; }//while loop }//create_Directory function create_dir_err() { alert("Recursively create directories error."); } function request_FS_fail() { alert("Failed to request File System "); } Although the directories are created, the it sends me ErrorCallback:"alert("Recursively create directories error.");" Firstly, I don't think this code will work since I have tried on this: This one failed: window.requestFileSystem( LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT, 0, //request file system success callback. function(fileSys) { fileSys.root.getDirectory( "story_repository/"+ dir_name, {create: true, exclusive: false}, //Create directory story_repository/Stallman_time. function(directory) { alert("Create directory: "+ "story_repository/"+ dir_name); //create dir_name/img/ fileSys.root.getDirectory { "story_repository/"+ dir_name + "/img/", {create: true, exclusive: false}, function(directory) { alert("Create a directory: "+ "story_repository/"+ dir_name + "/img/"); //check. //create dir_name/rec/ fileSys.root.getDirectory { "story_repository/"+ dir_name + "/rec/", {create: true, exclusive: false}, function(directory) { alert("Create a directory: "+ "story_repository/"+ dir_name + "/rec/"); //check. //Go ahead. }, createError } //create dir_name/rec/ }, createError } //create dir_name/img }, createError); }, //Create directory story_repository/Stallman_time. createError()); } I just repeatedly call fs.root.getDirectory only but it failed. But the first one is almost the same... 1. What is the problem at all? Why does the first one always gives me the ErrorCallback? 2. Why can't the second one work? 3. Does anyone has a better solution?(no ErrorcallBack msg) ps: I work on Android and PhoneGap 1.7.0.

  • Why jQuery selector can't work but getElementById works in this scenario?

    - by Stallman
    Here is the HTML: <html> <head> <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.7.2.min.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="jquery-1.7.2.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="access.js"></script> </head> <body> <button id="trigger"></button> <img id= "testElement" style= "position: absolute; border-color: white; top:340px; left:615px;" width="34px" height= "34px" /> </body> </html> And the access.js file is: $(document).ready( function(){ $('#trigger').click(function(){ $('#testElement').src="success.png"; //THIS WON'T WORK. document.getElementById('testElement').src= "success.png"; //BUT THIS WORKS. }); }); I know that if I use $, the return object is a jQuery object. It's not the same as getElementById. But why the jQuery selector can't work here? I need the jQuery object to make more operations like "append/style"... Thanks. UPDATE Too much correct answers appear at almost the same time... Please give more explanations to let me decide who I should give the credit, thanks!!! Sorry for my poor understanding of your correct answer... I just want more detail. Are all the attribute nodes(src/width/height...) not the property of jQuery object? So does the jQuery selector only select DOM Element Node like ? Thank you! 3. List item

  • Chrome OS : déjà un échec pour le créateur de Gmail et de la devise de Google, l'OS accumule les critiques négatives

    Chrome OS : déjà un échec pour le créateur de Gmail et de la devise de Google L'OS accumule les critiques négatives Les premières critiques sur Chrome OS ne sont pas bonnes. Parmi ces testeurs des premiers laptops équipés de l'OS de Google orienté Cloud, deux voix portent un peu plus que les autres. Celle de Paul Buchheit, créateur de Gmail, et celle de Richard Stallman, le père du GNU. La première constatation polémique, bien qu'elle aille dans le sens de la vision de Google d'un OS totalement intégré dans le Web, a choqué plus d'un testeur de la première heure. Chrome OS n'a tout simplement pas d'explorateur de disques durs. En tout cas rien d'équivalent à Windows...

  • Any suggestions how it would be good to promote software in a small company ?

    - by Derfder
    Ok, I know if I am Red hat or other giant and offer some support etc. I can be profitable, in fact, Red Hat is doing quite well. However, what about a small company where I create a small program. e.g. an instant messenger for a windows or linux (just as an illustration) and I want to sell it. But how can I sell it if it is free and everybody can download it? Any advice? I like the idea of FSF by Richard Stallman, however I am missing the way how to sell my software under GNU/GPL licence. Any advice, how can I solve this problem? Any profitable small business software developers around with their opinion? Any links or names of small companies taht I can look at and study their model of business?

  • who do you admire in a scientific/technical field [closed]

    - by Tshepang
    This off-topic item refers to people with major achievements in fields such as engineering, science, and mathematics. Here's my picks: Eric Drexler for his work on molecular nanotech. His book, Engines of Creations, is mind-blowing. Robert Freitas for his work on molecular nanotech. The breadth of his multi-volume book, Nanomedicine, is impressive. Richard Stallman for promoting Free Software.

  • Open source vs commercial game engines

    - by Vanangamudi
    How commercial game accomplsih stunnning graphics with smooth game play? I am a huge die hard fan and follower of GNU Stallman and his philosophies and other Libre people Cmon how wud I miss Linus. but I got to admit commercial games does excellent jobs. One such good example is Assasin's Creed from Ubisoft. It has good quality graphcis and plays smoothly in my Dual core CPU with Nvidia Geforce 8400ES. Rockstar GTA4 has awesome graphcis but it's slower than AC considering the graphics quality tradeoff. Age of Empires from Ensemble studios, does include Massive crowd AI simulation, yet it plays so smoothly with eyecandy graphics and very large weapon sets and different techtree elements on the other hand. Open source games like Glest, 0A.D(still in alpha :) are not so smooth even though they have very restricted abilities? Coming to question: how do game companies achieve such optmizations, or the open source community is not doing optimizations, or there are any propriarity technological elements that benefits only the companies exists huh?? e.g the OpenSubDiv from Pixar just released open to community?? something like that. and why it is hard to implement optimizations? are there any legal restrictions???

  • Microsoft and the open source community

    - by Charles Young
    For the last decade, I have repeatedly, in my imitable Microsoft fan boy style, offered an alternative view to commonly held beliefs about Microsoft's stance on open source licensing.  In earlier times, leading figures in Microsoft were very vocal in resisting the idea that commercial licensing is outmoded or morally reprehensible.  Many people interpreted this as all-out corporate opposition to open source licensing.  I never read it that way. It is true that I've met individual employees of Microsoft who are antagonistic towards FOSS (free and open source software), but I've met more who are supportive or at least neutral on the subject.  In any case, individual attitudes of employees don't necessarily reflect a corporate stance.  The strongest opposition I've encountered has actually come from outside the company.  It's not a charitable thought, but I sometimes wonder if there are people in the .NET community who are opposed to FOSS simply because they believe, erroneously, that Microsoft is opposed. Here, for what it is worth, are the points I've repeated endlessly over the years and which have often been received with quizzical scepticism. a)  A decade ago, Microsoft's big problem was not FOSS per se, or even with copyleft.  The thing which really kept them awake at night was the fear that one day, someone might find, deep in the heart of the Windows code base, some code that should not be there and which was published under GPL.  The likelihood of this ever happening has long since faded away, but there was a time when MS was running scared.  I suspect this is why they held out for a while from making Windows source code open to inspection.  Nowadays, as an MVP, I am positively encouraged to ask to see Windows source. b)  Microsoft has never opposed the open source community.  They have had problems with specific people and organisations in the FOSS community.  Back in the 1990s, Richard Stallman gave time and energy to a successful campaign to launch antitrust proceedings against Microsoft.  In more recent times, the negative attitude of certain people to Microsoft's submission of two FOSS licences to the OSI (both of which have long since been accepted), and the mad scramble to try to find any argument, however tenuous, to block their submission was not, let us say, edifying. c) Microsoft has never, to my knowledge, written off the FOSS model.  They certainly don't agree that more traditional forms of licensing are inappropriate or immoral, and they've always been prepared to say so.  One reason why it was so hard to convince people that Microsoft is not rabidly antagonistic towards FOSS licensing is that so many people think they have no involvement in open source.  A decade ago, there was virtually no evidence of any such involvement.  However, that was a long time ago.  Quietly over the years, Microsoft has got on with the job of working out how to make use of FOSS licensing and how to support the FOSS community.  For example, as well as making increasingly extensive use of Github, they run an important FOSS forge (CodePlex) on which they, themselves, host many hundreds of distinct projects.  The total count may even be in the thousands now.  I suspect there is a limit of about 500 records on CodePlex searches because, for the past few years, whenever I search for Microsoft-specific projects on CodePlex, I always get approx. 500 hits.  Admittedly, a large volume of the stuff they publish under FOSS licences amounts to code samples, but many of those 'samples' have grown into useful and fully featured frameworks, libraries and tools. All this is leading up to the observation that yesterday's announcement by Scott Guthrie marks a significant milestone and should not go unnoticed.  If you missed it, let me summarise.   From the first release of .NET, Microsoft has offered a web development framework called ASP.NET.  The core libraries are included in the .NET framework which is released free of charge, but which is not open source.   However, in recent years, the number of libraries that constitute ASP.NET have grown considerably.  Today, most professional ASP.NET web development exploits the ASP.NET MVC framework.  This, together with several other important parts of the ASP.NET technology stack, is released on CodePlex under the Apache 2.0 licence.   Hence, today, a huge swathe of web development on the .NET/Azure platform relies four-square on the use of FOSS frameworks and libraries. Yesterday, Scott Guthrie announced the next stage of ASP.NET's journey towards FOSS nirvana.  This involves extending ASP.NET's FOSS stack to include Web API and the MVC Razor view engine which is rapidly becoming the de facto 'standard' for building web pages in ASP.NET.  However, perhaps the more important announcement is that the ASP.NET team will now accept and review contributions from the community.  Scott points out that this model is already in place elsewhere in Microsoft, and specifically draws attention to development of the Windows Azure SDKs.  These SDKs are central to Azure development.   The .NET and Java SDKs are published under Apache 2.0 on Github and Microsoft is open to community contributions.  Accepting contributions is a more profound move than simply releasing code under FOSS licensing.  It means that Microsoft is wholeheartedly moving towards a full-blooded open source approach for future evolution of some of their central and most widely used .NET and Azure frameworks and libraries.  In conjunction with Scott's announcement, Microsoft has also released Git support for CodePlex (at long last!) and, perhaps more importantly, announced significant new investment in their own FOSS forge. Here at Solidsoft we have several reasons to be very interested in Scott's announcement. I'll draw attention to one of them.  Earlier this year we wrote the initial version of a new UK Government web application called CloudStore.  CloudStore provides a way for local and central government to discover and purchase applications and services. We wrote the web site using ASP.NET MVC which is FOSS.  However, this point has been lost on the ladies and gentlemen of the press and, I suspect, on some of the decision makers on the government side.  They announced a few weeks ago that future versions of CloudStore will move to a FOSS framework, clearly oblivious of the fact that it is already built on a FOSS framework.  We are, it is fair to say, mildly irked by the uninformed and badly out-of-date assumption that “if it is Microsoft, it can't be FOSS”.  Old prejudices live on.
