Auf dem 28C3 warnte Cory Doctorow in seinem Vortrag vor dem "kommenden Krieg gegen universelle Computer" (deutsche Transkription von Christian Wöhrl). Nach Doctorows Ansicht besteht ein massives wirtschaftliches Interesse daran, universelle Computer, die jede beliebige Software ausführen können, abzuschaffen – so, wie sich derzeit die Unterhaltungsindustrie Computer wünscht, auf denen man Filme, Musik, Bücher und Zeitschriften zwar konsumieren, aber nicht kopieren und weitergeben kann. Angesichts der fortschreitenden Computerisierung aller Lebensbereiche, spekuliert der Blogger, sei der derzeitige Kampf ums Copyright nur der Beginn einer langen Auseinandersetzung um universelle Computer.

Die aktuellen Entwicklungen, die sich im Kontext der Einführung von Windows 8 und der UEFI-Funktion Secure Boot im PC-Markt abzeichnen, lassen diese Befürchtungen durchaus berechtigt erscheinen. Mit Secure Boot, für ARM-Rechner mit Windows 8 verbindlich vorgeschrieben und auch für die x86-Welt auf der Agenda, könnte die Zeit zu Ende gehen, wo der Eigentümer eines PC selbst entscheiden kann, welches Betriebssystem und welche Software er auf seinem Rechner laufen lässt.

Richard Stallman's Selected Essays: Free Software, Free Society (pdf) | offene Ablage: nothing to hide

Richard Stallman is the philosopher king of software. He single-handedly ignited what has become a world-wide movement to create software that is Free, with a capital F. He has toiled for years at a project that many once considered a fool’s errand, and now that is widely seen as “inevitable.”
—Simon L. Garfinkel, computer science author and columnist


By his hugely successful efforts to establish the idea of “Free Software,” Stallman has made a massive contribution to the human condition. His contribution combines elements that have technical, social, political, and economic consequences.
— Gerald Jay Sussman, Matsushita Professor of Electrical Engineering, MIT


RMS is the leading philosopher of software. You may dislike some of his attitudes, but you cannot avoid his ideas. This slim volume will make those ideas readily accessible to those who are confused by the buzzwords of rampant commercialism. This book needs to be widely circulated and widely read.
—Peter Salus, computer science writer, book reviewer, and UNIX historian

The plugin, which came out of beta today, works with a list of sites that support HTTPS, but may be doing so in an incomplete or limited fashion. If a site defaults to unencrypted HTTP or links to unencrypted pages, the plugin will rewriting requests so that true HTTPS is utilized. It currently works with a number of big sites, including Google Search, Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, bit.ly, PayPal and all Wordpress.com blogs.
