What will happen if section 230 is nuked?
>Section 230
Unlikely to be completely removed, but it might be revised as dup's last act or during Biden's term. These hypothetical revisions and what they might change and affect is what should really be discussed. When a businessman tells you something extreme like this, it's always a way to make meeting somewhere in the middle seem like a good option. However, in this case, both options are shit.

If the revisions are serious and make running any interactive service away from tech giants' infrastructure, migrating to alternative protocols like Tor and I2P would be a way out. But as of this moment, no imageboard software compatible with running over a network where a poster's identity is not tied to an IP address exists. There have been some truly autistic solutions proposed, such as Freenet's web of trust. But in my opinion those don't mitigate excessive shitposting but rather clusters people into social bubbles and circlejerks.

Lots of sites got deplatformed by jewflare and hosts already even with section 230 intact. This may scratch FAGMART just a bit, for their formidable army of lawyers. It will take more than that for the government to end the power of them. By then, the government will do the censoring.

>Lots of sites got deplatformed
That's not what section 230 protects you against. A platform is not responsible for the content its users post, barring illegal things with the Good Samaritan provision. So, as things are right now, if someone spams CP on your board, you are not liable for hosting CP provided your remove the offending material in a timely manner (see the provision). With it gone, you are now a lot more liable. By which I mean you will have to shovel a lot more shekels into the pockets of lawyers to get you out of it without an easy law such as section 230. So when you say
>This may scratch FAGMART just a bit
think about how hard that will scratch anyone that isn't.
>By then, the government will do the censoring

Yes. It is already bad enough now. See 8ch, somebody uploaded a Word manifesto and site is nuked. What difference does it make without section 230 anyways? If I doddle up a 0-day word docs, this site is kill in a too.
>FAGMART don't already operate together with government
Of course they are one. But even they have infighting among themselves, for they are not one person. United they exploit the goyims, but not so much on power and profits. This is why there is still room for goyims to make use of this power struggle again (((them))).

Does nobody here remember what happened to Backpage? That entire site being taken down and its operators arrested for the content users posted proves that section 230 never meant much.

Later they changed the law with FOSTA-SESTA which goes to show that they'll do whatever they want and change the law afterwards. Anyone who complains about about ex post facto laws must be a pedophile. That the owners of Backpage won awards from law enforcement for helping to fight sex trafficking and commendations from sex worker groups for helping make their job safer prior to being targeted doesn't matter.

Right now they're trying same thing against pornhub and they'll probably succeed.

Is there a way to make an alternative internet? I recall some sort of messaging service that used some sort of radio and required about $50 of equipment, it was open source but I forget what it was called. Though I believe it relied on bouncing signals around and unless there was at least one every X kilometers it wouldn't work.

What makes the current internet good is how ubiquitous it is. You can even make obfuscation protocols and additional routing networks on top of it thanks to that. You are talking about radiowave-based meshnets, which are mostly an enthusiast thing. This means you won't even get what little anonymity we have at the moment, not to mention other things such as triangulation of sender based on said air waves and how in a lot of countries an absolute majority of radio bandwidth is regulated very strictly, to the point of encryption being illegal.

Gentoo Linux to discontinue LibreSSL support
>Starting 2021-02-01, Gentoo will discontinue supporting dev-libs/libressl as an alternative to dev-libs/openssl.  While it will still be possible for expert users to use LibreSSL on their systems, we are only going to provide support for OpenSSL-based systems.  Most importantly, we are no longer going to maintain downstream patches for LibreSSL support -- it will rely on either package upstreams merging such patches themselves, or LibreSSL upstream finally working towards better OpenSSL compatibility.

So this means cock.li is compromised, right? Invites are piss easy to bypass for governments when you have such a large userbase, so it doesn't actually do what it's claimed to do.

Also, it's already a promise, now that the newer processors have some kind of drm-like system that would tag stuff you made with your unque cpu identification (assuming in a proprietary OS).
I guess they just don't want civilians using memes or making any propaganda by any means (meanwhile small guy agent in foreign division can just relentlessly publish psychological warfare materials and destroy your webring/ib with AI-generated content that violates US laws and causes all your servers to be seized by law until the whole world becomes assimilated by the one world ideology, living in a reality worse than dystopian fiction).

It could be believable if there's some ignorance, like not knowing the save icon is a floppy disk, but if you explain that a floppy disk was historically used to store files, and they give you a blank stare while drooling slightly...

You really can't. I think it should be pretty clear to see that society is making people incredibly stupid. Even retarded literal boomers in my family, with IQs that must be barely in the 90s if not in the 80s, understand directories, and they never figured out how to minimize and maximize windows (or that tabs exist, in web browsers), even after using computers for at least almost 30 years. Even they comprehend that concept and have directories for their files, so imagine the damage that has been done to the zoomers and what is being done to the next generation. The next generations are going to be Agenda 2030 incarnate. Completely mentally enslaved bug people that are incapable of making decisions or doing anything.

Tab Unloading in Firefox 93
>Starting with Firefox 93, Firefox will monitor available system memory and, should it ever become so critically low that a crash is imminent, Firefox will respond by unloading memory-heavy but not actively used tabs. 
>On Windows, out-of-memory (OOM) situations are responsible for a significant number of the browser and content process crashes reported by our users. 

>On Windows, Firefox gets a notification from the operating system (setup using CreateMemoryResourceNotification) indicating that the available physical memory is running low.
>The threshold for low physical memory is not documented, but appears to be around 6%. Once that occurs, Firefox starts periodically checking the commit space (MEMORYSTATUSEX.ullAvailPageFile).
>When the commit space reaches a low-memory threshold, which is defined with the preference “browser.low_commit_space_threshold_mb”, Firefox will unload one tab, or if there are no unloadable tabs, trigger the Firefox-internal memory-pressure warning allowing subsystems in the browser to reduce their memory use. 
>The browser then waits for a short period of time before checking commit space again and then repeating this process until available commit space is above the threshold.
>On Windows, allocations fail and applications will crash if there is low commit space in the system even though there is physical memory available because Windows does not overcommit memory and can refuse to allocate virtual memory to the process in this case. In other words, unlike Linux, Windows always requires commit space to allocate memory.

Holy shit make it stop, Firefox is not my fucking operating system. Taking bets: Will they reimplement Linux's retarded OOM softlock too?

>On Windows, allocations fail and applications will crash if there is low commit space in the system even though there is physical memory available because Windows does not overcommit memory and can refuse to allocate virtual memory to the process in this case. In other words, unlike Linux, Windows always requires commit space to allocate memory.
Gotta love how they make this sound like a bad thing when it's actually one of the few things Windows does better than Linux because it means Windows programs can handle OOM situations properly. You can enable strict commit checking on Linux with vm.overcommit_memory=2, but there is no low memory signal, so you only get failing allocations; sometimes in an innocent program rather than the bloatmeister who caused it.

They're forcing you to shit into the toilet, Pajeet. Blindly rubberstamping allocations by default and then going "oops, too much" an hour later when there is no more possible error handling besides SIGKILL is a mega retard idea and only there because of the design mistake that is fork.

The error handling is in the well-written programs you tard. The reason people get away with ungraceful crashes on OOM is because overcommitting makes anything else impossible.

Probably because your problematic process was coincidentally the biggest memory hog at the time. This isn't always true and the OOM killer will still shoot innocents in that case today. This is a fundamental problem, the kernel can't magically intuit who's the real culprit.
>So can any program that uses low memory notification in Linux. It just didn't force programs to follow it.
Windows doesn't force you to listen to this notification either. What it does do is tell userspace the truth about available memory - something that Linux doesn't do, thereby breaking the inferior but portable way to deal with low memory situations. This is the thing that needs justification. By the way, if "windows > linux" triggers you: OpenBSD doesn't do this shit either, precisely because it's insane.

Technically true due to default resource limits, but that was not what I thought I remembered. Of course it supports overcommitting because it has fork. Well, it's not an important point since you weren't doing it for fanboy reasons.

Log4Shell: RCE 0-day exploit found in log4j 2, a popular Java logging package
On Thursday (December 9th), a 0-day exploit in the popular Java logging library [Apache] log4j (version 2) was discovered that results in Remote Code Execution (RCE) by logging a certain string. Almost all versions of log4j version 2 are affected: 2.0-beta9 <= Apache log4j <= 2.14.1

Log4Shell Update: Second log4j Vulnerability Published (CVE-2021-44228 + CVE-2021-45046)
After the log4j maintainers released version 2.15.0 to address the Log4Shell vulnerability, an additional attack vector was identified and reported in CVE-2021-45046. Our research into this shows that this new CVE invalidates previous mitigations used to protect versions 2.7.0 <= Apache log4j <= 2.14.1 from Log4Shell in some cases. You may still be vulnerable to Log4Shell (RCE) if you only enabled the formatMsgNoLookups flag or set %m{nolookups} when you also set data in the ThreadContext with attacker controlled data. In this case, you must upgrade to >= 2.15.0 or else you will still be vulnerable to RCE.

Systemd 250 released
systemd-homed now makes use of UID mapped mounts for the home areas. If the kernel and used file system support it, files are now internally owned by the "nobody" user (i.e. the user typically used for indicating "this ownership is not mapped"), and dynamically mapped to the UID used locally on the system via the UID mapping mount logic of recent kernels. This makes migrating home areas between different systems cheaper because recursively chown()ing file system trees is no longer necessary. 

highlights:

        * Support for encrypted and authenticated credentials has been added.
          This extends the credential logic introduced with v247 to support
          non-interactive symmetric encryption and authentication, based on a
          key that is stored on the /var/ file system or in the TPM2 chip (if
          available), or the combination of both (by default if a TPM2 chip
          exists the combination is used, otherwise the /var/ key only). The
          credentials are automatically decrypted at the moment a service is
          started, and are made accessible to the service itself in unencrypted
          form. A new tool 'systemd-creds' encrypts credentials for this
          purpose, and two new service file settings LoadCredentialEncrypted=
          and SetCredentialEncrypted= configure such credentials.

          This feature is useful to store sensitive material such as SSL
          certificates, passwords and similar securely at rest and only decrypt
          them when needed, and in a way that is tied to the local OS
          installation or hardware.

        * A new setting DefaultOOMScoreAdjust= is now supported in
          /etc/systemd/system.conf + /etc/systemd/user.conf that may be used to
          set the default process OOM score adjustment value for processes
          forked off the service manager. For per-user service managers this
          now defaults to 100, but for per-system service managers is left as
          is. This means that by default now services forked off the user
          service manager are more likely to be killed by the OOM killer than
          system services or the managers themselves.

        * The per-user service manager learnt support for communicating with
          systemd-oomd to acquire OOM kill information.

        * The TPM2/FIDO2/PKCS11 support in systemd-cryptsetup is now also built
          as a plug-in for cryptsetup. This means the plain cryptsetup command
          may now be used to unlock volumes set up this way.

        * Support for activating dm-integrity volumes at boot via a new file
          /etc/integritytab and the tool systemd-integritysetup have been
          added. This is similar to /etc/crypttab and /etc/veritytab, but deals
          with dm-integrity instead of dm-crypt/dm-verity.

        * A new unit systemd-boot-update.service has been added. If enabled
          (the default) and the sd-boot loader is detected to be installed, it
          is automatically updated to the newest version when out of date. This
          is useful to ensure the boot loader remains up-to-date, and updates
          automatically propagate from the OS tree in /usr/.

        * sd-boot can now parse Microsoft Windows' Boot Configuration Data.
          This is used to robustly generate boot entry titles for Windows.

        * systemd-analyze security gained a --profile option that can be used
          to take into account a portable profile when analyzing portable
          services, since a lot of the security-related settings are enabled
          through them.

        * systemd-analyze learnt a new inspect-elf verb that parses ELF core
          files, binaries and executables and prints metadata information,
          including the build-id and other info described on:
          https://systemd.io/COREDUMP_PACKAGE_METADATA/

        * systemd-networkd will now once again automatically generate persistent
          MAC addresses for batadv and bridge interfaces. Users can disable this
          by using MACAddress=none in .netdev files.

        * bootctl and systemd-bless-boot can now be linked statically.

        * systemd-homed will now try to unmount an activate home area in
          regular intervals once the user logged out fully. Previously this was
          attempted exactly once but if the home directory was busy for some
          reason it was not tried again.

        * systemd-homed's LUKS2 home area backend will now create a BSD file
          system lock on the image file while the home area is active
          (i.e. mounted). If a home area is found to be locked, logins are
          politely refused. This should improve behavior when using home areas
          images that are accessible via the network from multiple clients, and
          reduce the chance of accidental file system corruption in that case.

        * systemd-resolved now listens on a second DNS stub address: 127.0.0.54
          (in addition to 127.0.0.53, as before). If DNS requests are sent to
          this address they are propagated in "bypass" mode only, i.e. are
          almost not processed locally, but mostly forwarded as-is to the
          current upstream DNS servers. This provides a stable DNS server
          address that proxies all requests dynamically to the right upstream
          DNS servers even if these dynamically change. This stub does not do
          mDNS/LLMNR resolution. However, it will translate look-ups to
          DNS-over-TLS if necessary. This new stub is particularly useful in
          container/VM environments, or for tethering setups: use DNAT to
          redirect traffic to any IP address to this stub.

      * systemd-repart no longer requires OpenSSL.

        * systemd-journald will no longer go back to volatile storage
          regardless of configuration when its unit is restarted.

        * The shutdown command learnt a new option --show, to display the
          scheduled shutdown.

ID mapping for mounted filesystems
Almost every filesystem (excepting relics like VFAT) implements the concept of the owner and group of each file; the higher levels of the operating system then use that information to control access to those files. For decades, it has usually sufficed to track a single owner and group for each file, but there is an increasing number of use cases wanting to make that ownership relative to the environment any given process is running in. Developers have been working for a few years to find solutions to this problem; the latest attempt is the ID-mapped mounts patch set from Christian Brauner.

In truth, the ID-mapping problem is not exactly new. User and group IDs for files only make sense across a management domain if there is a single authority controlling the assignment of those IDs. Since that is often not the case, network filesystems like NFS have had the ability to remap IDs for many years. The growth of virtualization and container technologies has brought the problem closer to home; there can be multiple management domains running on a single machine. The NFS ID-remapping mechanism is of little use if NFS itself is not being used.

German Court Rules Against Internet Security Non-Profit Quad9 In First Hearing Versus Sony Music Germany 

Global Internet Freedom Threatened by Copyright Ruling Targeting Unrelated DNS Operator

The Hamburg Regional Court today ruled that they would not suspend an existing injunction against Quad9 in a case filed by Sony Music Germany. The case centers around Sony Music’s demand that Quad9’s servers located in Germany stop resolving DNS names of third-party sites which are claimed to have URLs that contain copyright infringements.

There is no component of the claimed copyright infringement that Quad9 participates indirectly, nor is there any infringing data on Quad9’s servers, nor does Quad9 have any business relationship with the site in question. The injunction claim is only that Quad9, by allowing end-users to map internet names to IP addresses as part of its DNS resolution service, is legally obligated to stop resolving those names if demanded by parties claiming to be rightsholders.

>After some experimentation, I think this is indeed more than feasible, though we’ll see how far I manage to take it and how quickly…

I just hope that Haiku fans don't start developing X11 programs now.

I just finished porting a random program to Haiku... Never used it before.

Does the X11 compatibility layer allow seeing the whole server? If it does, I'm the main contributor on a somewhat popular program that needs such access, I could port it to Haiku too.

What would be the point of a compatibility layer to something that itself will have to run compatibility layers for years to come?
Section 230 was illegal to begin with because it's literally a law passed by Congress abridging free speech.

The tech companies dug their own hole by not developing mechanisms to have mass communication sites that don't require moderation to be functional.

They were warned and I already handed out packets on how to restructure communication sites so they don't require editorialization to be usable. So the companies that already got their Section 230 free business model ready will take over the market as companies that bet on censorship continuing disappear in a flurry of spam and lawsuits. It takes as little as a month for people to forget about old sites, so it will be a major transfer of market power overnight.

When Section 230 goes down, it shouldn't be replaced with some other rules to allow censorship and enabling tech cartels to control entry to markets by just accusing other companies of being immoral and blacklisting them from common carrier services. 

It's their own fault if they didn't listen.
Retrospective and Technical Details on the recent Firefox Outage
>On January 13th 2022, Firefox became unusable for close to two hours for users worldwide.
>Firefox has a number of servers and related infrastructure that handle several ((( (((internal services))) ))).
>This ((( (((infrastructure))) ))) is hosted by different cloud service providers [including Google Cloud Platform] that use load balancers to distribute the load evenly across servers.
>these load balancers have settings related to the HTTP protocol they should advertise and one of these settings is HTTP/3 support [which was on because of configuration error made by Mozilla]
>from that point forward, some connections that Firefox makes to the ((( (((services infrastructure))) ))) would use HTTP/3 instead of the previously used HTTP/2 protocol

>Shortly after, we noticed a spike in crashes being reported through our crash reporter and also received several reports from inside and outside of Mozilla describing a hang of the browser.
>we quickly discovered that the client was hanging inside a network request to one of the Firefox ((( (((internal services))) ))). 
>We then discovered through logs that for some reason, the load balancers for our ((( (((Telemetry service))) ))) were serving HTTP/3 connections while they hadn’t done that before.
>With the load balancer change in place, and a special code path in a new Rust service now active...
>This unexpected state caused the code to loop indefinitely rather than returning an error.

PwnKit: Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability Discovered in polkit’s pkexec (CVE-2021-4034)
>The Qualys Research Team has discovered a memory corruption vulnerability in polkit’s pkexec, a SUID-root program that is installed by default on every major Linux distribution.
>This easily exploited vulnerability allows any unprivileged user to gain full root privileges on a vulnerable host by exploiting this vulnerability in its default configuration.
>researchers have been able to independently verify the vulnerability, develop an exploit, and obtain full root privileges on default installations of Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and CentOS
>This vulnerability has been hiding in plain sight for 12+ years and affects all versions of pkexec since its first version in May 2009 (commit c8c3d83,  “Add a pkexec(1) command”).
>In other words, [bug] allows us to re-introduce an “unsecure” environment variable (for example, LD_PRELOAD) into pkexec’s environment.
>However, we note that OpenBSD is not exploitable, because its kernel refuses to execve() a program if argc is 0. [THEO WAS RIGHT!!]

Fedora and pkexec
>[PwnKit] also led to a recent discussion on the ((( (((Fedora))) ))) devel mailing list about whether pkexec, which runs a program as another user, is actually needed—or wanted—in some or all of the distribution's editions.
>But pkexec is used by quite a few different Fedora components, particularly in desktop-oriented editions, and it could """perhaps""" be a better choice than the alternatives for running programs with the privileges of another user. 
>If you are going to run programs as root anyway, though, pkexec is probably better than using sudo or other options, Lennart Poettering said:
<I mean, polkit has some issues, but I am pretty sure that "pkexec" is not what I'd consider the big problem with it.

Moving the [Linux] kernel to modern C [meaning C11]
>While critics like to focus on the community's extensive use of email, a possibly more significant anachronism is the use of the 1989 version of the C language standard for kernel code — a standard that was codified before the kernel project even began over 30 years ago.
>It is looking like that longstanding practice could be coming to an end as soon as the 5.18 kernel, which can be expected in May of this year. 
>Torvalds said that perhaps the time had come to look to moving to the C99 standard

>[Arnd Bergmann] suggested that it would be possible to go as far as the C11 standard (from 2011) while the change was being made, though he wasn't sure that C11 would bring anything new that would be useful to the kernel.
>It might even be possible to move to C17 or even the yet-unfinished C2x version of the language. [wtf?]
>That, however, has a downside in that it "would break gcc-5/6/7 support", and the kernel still supports those versions currently. Raising the minimum GCC version to 8.x would likely be more of a jump than the user community would be willing to accept at this point.

You tell me why, gcc is an implement of the standard. gcc isn't a rolling release and each version of it is locked to what it supports at that specific commit. Of course an implementation depends on a standard. An old implementation depends on an old standard makes perfect sense.
The problem is gcc is often bundled in toolchains that never gets updated. This often happens in vendor-patched toolchains for embedded platforms.

Emacs 28.1 is out!
- Native JIT compilation of elisp files using libgccjit* 
- The new NonGNU ELPA package archive is enabled by default alongside GNU ELPA (https://elpa.nongnu.org/)
- Text shaping with HarfBuzz and drawing with Cairo
- Support for loading SECure COMPuting filters**
- Much improved display of ((( Emoji ))) and Emoji sequences
- New system for documenting groups of functions
- A minor mode for context menus (context-menu-mode)
- Mode-specific commands
- Emacs shows matching parentheses by default
- Many improvements and extensions to project.el

*Emacs now optionally supports native compilation of Lisp files.
To enable this, configure Emacs with the '--with-native-compilation' option.
This requires the libgccjit library to be installed and functional,
and also requires GCC and Binutils to be available when Lisp code is
natively compiled.  See the Info node "(elisp) Native Compilation" for
more details.

If you build Emacs with native compilation, but without zlib, be sure
to configure with the '--without-compress-install' option, so that the
installed "*.el" files are not compressed; otherwise, you will not be
able to use JIT native compilation of the installed "*.el" files.

Note that JIT native compilation is done in a fresh session of Emacs
that is run in a subprocess, so it can legitimately report some
warnings and errors that aren't uncovered by byte-compilation.  We
recommend examining any such warnings before you decide they are
false.


** Emacs now supports loading a Secure Computing filter.
This is supported only on capable GNU/Linux systems.  To activate,
invoke Emacs with the '--seccomp=FILE' command-line option.  FILE must
name a binary file containing an array of 'struct sock_filter'
structures.  Emacs will then install that list of Secure Computing
filters into its own process early during the startup process.  You
can use this functionality to put an Emacs process in a sandbox to
avoid security issues when executing untrusted code.  See the manual
page for 'seccomp' system call, for details about Secure Computing
filters.

Actually, I just use Emacs as a file manager (dired), WM (EXWM) and terminal emulator (ansi-term, term and eshell). And I do all of my text editing using ED!! ed is the STANDARD editor. I actually used to use Vim before I tried GNU Emacs. What convinced me to switch to Emacs was the ease of customization (by using M-x customize-themes, M-x customize and M-x list-packages) and the documentation: try C-h ? (GNU Emacs is described as "self-documenting" among other things.) GNU Emacs is also more beginner friendly because it is harder to lose your work since Emacs makes backups by default. Both editors are very powerful. You should try both and choose which one you like more.

Not a problem for me. You can remap ctrl to caps lock or use evil-mode (vi keybindings).

NeoVim is a thing for a reason. ((( VimScript ))) sucks (NeoVim fixed this issue). Gvim GUI sucks (NeoVim got rid of it, and GNU Emacs has a proper GUI). If you use (Neo)Vim and want to get the same keybindings for another program, you must either select a program that has vim keybinding by default or you need to configure/patch it yourself. However, if you Emacs, you can just install a package and you have the Emacs keybindings (at its core, Emacs is an elisp environment).

>it is harder to lose your work since Emacs makes backups by default
Vim also makes backups by default (as .*swp files) and asks to load them next time you open the same file. I will admit the undo functionality is fucky though, it is absolutely possible to lose something you just typed through some panicked or confused combination of u, ctrl+r, U, u, ctrl+r ...

>You should try both and choose which one you like more.
As a young gpl-cuck collage student I tried emacs first.

>NeoVim stuff stuff stuff
As a general rule if Vim can't do something, or can't do it well, then that is a thing you are better off not having anyway. inb4 cope
vim: unrelated ancient piece of shit (weird rebindable hotkeys, horrible programming language)
emacs: unrelated ancient piece of shit (horrible rebindable hotkeys, weird programming language that is basically python, slower than vim)

Interesting. I can see from their docs they've implemented their own boot environment (m1n1), but does this actually jailbreak the hypervisor Apple forces even for macOS on M1, or is it still trapped inside?

Apparently they're also delisting "pirate" sites (I guess that probably also means old games roms) and useful tools like youtube-dl.

You have to try it and see if your hardware is supported.  If you can live without things like GPU, wifi, bluetooth, power management, that increases your chances.  For a long time I rean OpenBSD on i386 Thinkpad with VESA X server (no GPU) and it was enough for me.  But the wifi did work, and without that I'd have been stuck on Linux or needing to buy a separate USB wifi hardware.

I think that would suck more on OpenBSD, since they don't cross-compile anything.  That's why 32-bit ARM packages aren't available on the release date.  One of those little boards has to build Rust and Firefox.

NVIDIA Releases Open-Source GPU Kernel Modules

https://github.com/NVIDIA/open-gpu-kernel-modules
>The first release of the open GPU kernel modules is R515. Along with the source code, fully-built and packaged versions of the drivers are provided.
>In this open-source release, support for GeForce and Workstation GPUs is alpha quality. GeForce and Workstation users can use this driver on Turing and NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPUs to run Linux desktops and use features such as multiple displays, G-SYNC, and NVIDIA RTX ray tracing in Vulkan and NVIDIA OptiX.
>The R515 release contains precompiled versions of both the closed-source driver and the open-source kernel modules. These versions are mutually exclusive, and the user can make the choice at install time. The default option ensures that silent installs will pick the optimal path for NVIDIA Volta and older GPUs versus Turing+ GPUs. Users can build kernel modules from the source code and install them with the relevant user-mode drivers.
<Customers with Turing and Ampere GPUs can choose which modules to install. Pre-Turing customers will continue to run the closed source modules.

Sorry Kepler and Maxwell users, but you'll have to use the proprietary drivers for now.

Perhaps. The problem with reverse engineering drive rs is leaked source taint developers. But now they open source part of the driver, if the license allows and is compatible with nouveau, the devs can repurpose the source and integrate them.

There won't be 3 Ada compilers (FSF GNAT, GNAT-GPL/GNAT Community and GNAT Pro) anymore. There will be just FSF's GNAT (that's part of GCC) and GNAT Pro. Correct me if I'm wrong.
<Adacore releases libraries under Apache 2.0 license.
>Two years ago we thought about modernizing the ecosystem. A cleaner and more familiar ecosystem with two variants: A GNAT provided and supported by AdaCore for commercial/industrial projects, GNAT Pro, and a GNAT provided by the community for open source projects with familiar licensing and without pure GPL run-times, GNAT FSF. This results in a decision by AdaCore to stop further releases of GNAT Community and have the community handle its successor.
