They don't define bigotry, so it's just another form of "Hate Speech".

Power corrupts. Notice how it explicitly states you cannot promote misogyny, but promotion of misandry seem to be allowed.

Yes, of course you can.
In fact, the first indication that any compiler is approaching a version 1 quality level is the ability to compile itself.
In Linux From Scratch compiling GCC is one of the first steps.
GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the
GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical
one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from
the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend
non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license
restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.
If the typeface would be licensed under pure GPL (without a font exception), you would need to license your game under GPL as well (thus releasing the source code):
> The GPL is problematic for fonts because if a GPL font is embedded in a document, that document must be wholly licensed under the GPL. To mitigate this, the Free Software Foundation has written an experimental font exception for the GPL
But fortunately Cantarell, the mentioned typeface, was designed by Dave Crossland, founder of the cited Open Font Library – and has the font exception in it:
> As a special exception, if you create a document which uses this font, and embed this font or unaltered portions of this font into the document, this font does not by itself cause the resulting document to be covered by the GNU General Public License.
So to answer your question:
You can use the typeface without needing to release the source code.
I’m happy that you plan to do it at some point though.
Debian Iceweasel has the goal of being Firefox, plus backported fixes, minus the Mozilla trademark. (https://wiki.debian.org/Iceweasel)
IceCat goes/went beyond that and removed anti-features (non-free addons/plugins), and they add security/privacy features by default (https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/).
The built in Emacs tutorial is a good place to start. When you start Emacs for the first time the cursor (or 'point') is already on the tutorial so all you have to do is press enter. Another thing you can check out is the Emacs Mini Manual which is pretty nifty.
For learning Elisp An Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp (also available in Emacs with C-h i m 'elisp') seems to be a good place to start, although I always found it a bit too slow for people who can already program.
A general tip: I would recommend holding off on customizing Emacs too much. And instead focus more on getting used to how things work in Emacs.
Edit: you also asked about whether to use Emacs or Vim. Too much has already been written about that. Maybe learn the basics of both, and then choose one based on that. I think they're both pretty amazing editors when used by people who know how to use them.
You can use LUKS/dm-crypt with NTFS or FAT32 on top and mount it under Windows with LibreCrypt
As for your second question:
Try if the Windows built from the official repository is portable, otherwise: No
I've been running Trisquel GNU/Linux on my ThinkPad X200 without any issues once I replaced the wireless card.
I'm also running Parabola GNU/Linux on my Lemote Yeeloong. If you've used Archlinux before you will feel right at home on Parabola.
You may want to try Vivaldi. The guy who developed the old Opera is now making the Vivaldi browser. I run the snapshot version so that I get all the new goodies first.

I'd say highest priority should be in projects related to hardware support. Things like graphic card drivers, bluetooth devices and the like.
It's the reason I ended up having to use Windows in this particular machine. It sporadically restarts randomly when I run GNU/Linux for a while... and I've had bluetooth issues with a lot of machines.
If not possible, at least push for a common service online where we can find hardware that works properly with free software, with links indicating where to buy it, what drivers it uses, etc. With relevant fields and easy ways to browse and find the required data. Maybe even talk with the manufacturers and sell the hardware themselves, perhaps use OpenBazaar.
I think there was already some project started in that regard, but it was not really very featureful, not easy to browse and not a nice design.
Bug report follows:
> The Guix System Distribution (GuixSD) and the GNU Guix package manager are free software projects developed by volunteers around the ~~work~~ under the umbrella of the GNU Project.
is this your reason to reply?
anyways check this out.
i just changed the / with the + sign as proposed by Richald Stallman. It is the GNU system plus the linux kernel. It is a correct thing to say Debian GNU + Linux for anyone who sees it this way.
OwnCloud uses Ampache for this though. So if you do not want the mess that is OwnCloud right now, you can use Ampache directly:
or on github
Google's Colab is basically Jupyter with some extras, and Jupyter is available under a GNU-friendly BSD 3-clause. If you have some hardware lying around, it doesn't take too much to get set up with a notebook server. Colab notebooks are even in Jupyter format, so it'd be easy to migrate any old projects.
Reolink RLC-420 - $60 at Amazon
Correct. The Linux kernel is released under the GPLv2 licence.
Torvalds puts it:
> The kernel is GPL. No ifs, buts and maybe's about it. As a result,
anything that is a derived work has to be GPL'd. It's that simple.
To help promote my favorite and most under rated GNU tool I use I made a tutorial series on Groff.
Groff is a GNU implementation of troff. You can look at groff as an alternative to tools like LaTeX that compiles faster. Groff is also around 1/10th the size of LaTeX ). Hopefully my series encurages you to give groff a try!
The size comparison is acording to the LFS documentation. see groff size and LaTeX size
In the past 12 months Libreoffice has had 26,782 commits by 299 developers. Openoffice has had 4,208 commits by 43 developers. LibreOffice has regular releases with new features. Openoffice has had 1 feature release.
Yes, TempleOS is quite a good OS which can do a lot of basic stuff. If it only had a fresh live floppy image, I'd have added it as one of the virtual floppies inside my coreboot opensource BIOS to get it as a nice always-available boot option. I have a collection of the floppy OS in my BIOS, including KolibriOS: nice 100% opensource OS written on assembly, has lots of apps, GUI, and even networking, in just 1.44MB. http://kolibrios.org/en/
Android is non-GNU Linux distribution, in this context Linux is just a kernel and Android is whole OS and distribution under the same name. There are also other Android distributions, such as Replicant and CyanogenMod.
Also Fedora is GNU/Linux distribution where GNU stands for operating system foundation and Linux is kernel.
Also freedesktop.org stuff, including X.Org Server is not essential part of the system. For example Archlinux distribution base group does include 51 package of which 16 are from GNU and others are from individual projects including Linux kernel itself.
Also I think that GNU [has proven] handful of points pretty well.
>A large part of the basic tools that fill out the operating system come from the GNU project; hence the names: GNU/Linux, GNU/kFreeBSD, and GNU/Hurd. These tools are also free.
You could install replicant on a Samsung galaxy S3 with a 64gb microsd, then install CozyDVR. It's not the best solution, but it would work.
> I think many in the free software community see money and profits as a bad thing.
I doubt many people actually think that. Funding is thin on the ground because it's boring and very difficult, not because people don't like money.
An idea I think might have some merit is trawling through charitable / funding bodies and looking for ways their goals could be advanced through Free Software development. Eg (wildly speculative example) Norfoff-Robbins might benefit from some bespoke work on free audio apps.
I don't know if anybody is currently doing anything like this.
Freenet, it exists and it sort of works, but never really gained any real traction. There used to be projects attempting to host a Debian mirror on there, but those have all been long dead.
It's frustrating, as I think the ability to (anonymously/pseudonymously and uncensored) upload content is one of the most important aspects when it comes to Internet freedom and we have lost that. Not only is almost everything now hosted by a commercial party, those commercial parties will actively filter and censor the information, often automatically and preactive, not just in case of DMCA takedown requests. There is also a slow, but ongoing push, to require real names on many of those services.
There are similar projects around, most famously IPFS, but IPFS still requires you to host your own server to host your content, you can't 'upload into the cloud' and than switch your computer off like you could with Freenet.
You could try SourceHut, https://sr.ht
It's got a fast and minimal UI, in contrast to GitLab which is essentially trying to be GitHub. It's Free and Open Source so you could host your own if you like, although it would probably make more sense to use the official site. If you do so, please consider sending a few dollars to the guy behind the project for his expenses.
For discussion around SourceHut, see https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Anews.ycombinator.com+SourceHut
It is probably a better idea for upstream projects to streamline their build and contribution process instead.
Also, for Linux applications that can run on any distribution, AppImage is worth a look.
Unreal 4 Engine is a good example of Open Source that is not Free Software. But the following shows the problem with the ambiguity of the word "free" This from a section of the post that is a list of things the UE4 Engine team would like their community to help with:
This is from the UE4 engine blog: https://www.unrealengine.com/blog/unreal-engine-4-and-linux :
>Create a freely available (yes, the license allows that, provided that you don’t distribute the sources or tools) benchmark that could be included in Phoronix Test Suite and/or used to improve Linux graphics drivers
edit: corrected engine name
GitLab is clearly trying to balance the long-term goal of being a decent-enough community entity with their business goals. The fact that they took VC money means they can never be trusted to be completely aligned with the public interest … but there's still a wide range of how good or bad they could be, and they've shown surprising efforts to be on the good side of that.
So, for example, the CEO himself joined the FSF LibrePlanet list following the Gitorious buy-out and answered questions graciously, really listened, and took concrete action to address concerns.
This is old now, but here's the description of them actively listening to FSF volunteers: https://about.gitlab.com/2015/05/20/gitlab-gitorious-free-software/
And they haven't stopped listening so far. They even have moved some of the proprietary EE stuff into the CE free-software version.
They've also continued to enhance the EE stuff further and added a problematic CAPTCHA situation on the main site, so they aren't perfect. But I hope they fix the issue: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/46548
While we wish they were really software-freedom focused, it's only fair to say that they are in the middle between us and Google et al and are trying to satisfy both sides (which is impossible completely, of course). The more we speak up, the more it will pull them our way.
From my perspective, the only long-term solution is to build a better economic basis for free software to outcompete proprietary stuff and get away from VC crap. That's why I keep putting in so much volunteer time on Snowdrift.coop, hoping to be part of reaching that future.
From my point of view due to MetaFilter being a community based blog forum, where anyone can ask or comment upon anything. In a similar way as free software is inspectable by anyone and can be commented upon by anyone. That is MetaFilter a generalization of the free software principle from one perspective.
I didn't know about MetaFilter and am grateful for the reference. (I'm a GNU user since the 80-ies, and only run GNU/Linux on all personal computers and company servers since 1996).

Have you heard of the XMPP? It's electronic, it's a messaging service, and it's designed from its very inception to be extensible allowing people to add in all kinds of nifty features that weren't there at the beginning.
I can't give you a direct source (it was either in Rebel Code or Just for Fun, I read them both at a similar time and I get them confused, both are fantastic books for history though), but as I recall it was during some sort of conference where rms got up and rudely interrupted another speaker (Netscape...?) insisting that "Linux is not the proper term" and that the OS should be called "GNU/Linux".
I'll do some snooping around for specifics, but I'm pretty positive that was the situation. Major political blunder for the movement, imho, but then again, rms is a beautifully awkward guy anyway, what can you expect?
EDIT: afaik, AmishSexy in the comments does have the correct speech. Still don't know exactly where it's from though.
