But APT is GPL-ed - that's why I'd like to see the code.eriefisher wrote:Some kind of fork of apt

I've checked this link: the core of this project is also closed source:Head_on_a_Stick wrote:Tangentially related: DirectX on WSL.
This project is directly targeted at killing OpenCL and Vulkan.libd3d12.so and libdxcore.so are closed source, pre-compiled user mode binaries that ship as part of Windows. These binaries are compatible with glibc based distros and are automatically mounted under /usr/lib/wsl/lib
I often also feel Linux is becoming Windows, as more and more MS windows users try Linux, and often complain it is not like MS windows, so many developers try to make certain distros more like ms windows in efforts to attract more users, I guess, any way,....On one hand , it is good if both systems are more compatible, ...............I am tired now, maybe later ZZZzzzZZZzzzzZZzz"Embrace, extend, and extinguish" (EEE), also known as "embrace, extend, and exterminate", is a phrase that the U.S. Department of Justice found was used internally by Microsoft to describe its strategy for entering product categories involving widely used standards, extending those standards with proprietary capabilities, and then using those differences in order to strongly disadvantage its competitors.
Yes, I also thought "EEE" when I saw that story. A leopard never changes it's spots...LE_746F6D617A7A69 wrote:I think that we are facing a new wave of attacks on Linux
Thanks, was really interesting to read. Confirmed again did the right choice leaving MS$ after win95.LE_746F6D617A7A69 wrote: History should learn us how to avoid repeating the same mistakes.
Most of people have completely no idea how Bill Gates actually created that monster, known as Microshit today, so here's the full story:

Hmm, well good decision, I tried windows 1.0when it was released, but did not like it, and aslo noticed it seemed to be self destructive, so I wiped my hd and re-installed DOS, yes it was MS dos, but that is another topic, then when windows 3.1 , they claimed it was better, tried again, but it made a mess and I had to format, install Dos again, shortly after, I saw the announcement aboutFreeDos, on USENET, I was all ready using Unix, when online, my host being a Unix powered server,.. any way, this was also when I was introduced to open source software as well, it was fun and exciting, lot's of new programs and software , yes sometimes, in fact often there were bugs, but there also usually was a form of sorts to submit /report the bug, and of course , since it was open source it was also possible to find my own solution to the bug or problem, ahh those were the "good old days",... any way I never did look back as far as MS windows goes, and also started using FreeDos instead of MS Dos, I asked on USENET about some kind of Unix, or Unix like system I could run on a normal PC, it was Jim Hall that suggested Linux, I don't remember what user name I used back then, but any way, guess I am rambling and going way off topic here, sorry...ahh the meds are kicking in, and I have a lot of chores to do, so that's all folks!, for now any wayby arzgi »Confirmed again did the right choice leaving MS$ after win95.
They are referring to CppCoreGuidelines project - so a natural and logical name for the library would be for example CppCoreGuidelinesLibrary -> CCGL or LCCG, but instead they're using "Guidelines Support Library" name : what guidelines? - this name has nothing to do with C++ CoreThe Guidelines Support Library (GSL) contains functions and types that are suggested for use by the C++ Core Guidelines maintained by the Standard C++ Foundation.
Have You ever heard of any Google or IOS project that is pretending to be a FOSS project by using the same name?pylkko wrote:I'm not sure they are doing anything different than other companies.
This basically allows MS to do just anything with the project, includig possibility of using the code in their own closed-source projects and changing the licensing terms for "third-parties". But foremost, it allows to put Microsoft logo on the cloned projects -> a classic case of EEE5. Licenses.

This partially explains why Microsoft have joined the Linux Foundation -> they are unable to maintain and develop that shitty Windows kernel code anymore...Oh god, the NTFS code is a purple opium-fueled Victorian horror novel that uses global recursive locks and SEH for flow control. Let's write ReFs instead. (And hey, let's start by copying and pasting the NTFS source code and removing half the features! Then let's add checksums, because checksums are cool, right, and now with checksums we're just as good as ZFS? Right? And who needs quotas anyway?)
