GRsecurity is preventing others from employing their rights under version 2 the GPL to redistribute (by threatening them with a non-renewal of a contract to recive this patch to the linux kernel.)
(GRsecurity is a derivative work of the linux kernel (it is a patch))
People who have dealt with them have attested to this fact:
"You will also lose the access to the patches in the form of grsec not renewing the contract.
Also they've asked us (a Russian hosting company) for $17000+ a year for access their stable patches. $17k is quite a lot for us. A question about negotiating a lower price was completely ignored. Twice." -- fbt2lurker
And it is suggested to be the case here aswell:
"Do you work for some company that pays for Grsecurity? If so then would you kindly excersise the rights given to you by GPL and send me a tarball of all the latest patches and releases?" -- lolidaisuki
"sadly (for this case) no, i work in a human rights organization where we get the patches by a friendly and richer 3rd party of the same field. we made the compromise to that 3rd party to not distribute the patches outside and as we deal with some critical situations i cannot afford to compromise that even for the sake of gpl :/
the "dumber" version for unstable patches will make a big problem for several projects, i would keep an eye on them. this situation cannot be hold for a long time" -- disturbio
Is this not tortious interference, on grsecurity's (Brad Spengler) part, with the quazi-contractual relationship the sublicensee has with the original licensor?
(Also Note: the stable branch now contains features that will never make it to the "testing" branch, and are not allowed to be redistributed, per the scheme mentioned above (which has been successful: not one version of the stable branch has been released by anyone, even those asked to do so, since the scheme has been put in place (they say they cannot as they cannot lose access to the patch as that may cost the lives and freedom of activists in latin america)))
@xoreipeip @grsecurity they call it a "demo" version "20:14 < spender> what's in the public version is < 1/5th the size of the full version"
oreipeip @grsecurity "20:21 < spender> also it wouldn't be as fast as the commercial version [...] there are missing optimization passes"

What is it about G+ that just makes it so damn unnappealing? The interface and just way it works is horrid.
It took me literally an hour to figure out how to delete my previous profile pictures from my google account. I had to go to some obscure photo album site that is linked with Google just to delete them.
What is a wireless card? I've had to move my desktop to a room without any ethernet ports. What do I do?
Grab a brick and hit yourself repeatedly in the forehead.
After regaining consciousness, read the sticky, apply the newly acquired knowledge from the sticky in your life.
After you're successful leave /g/ and never come back again.
I use a cheap usb wireless card and its worked great.
I've always been told to avoid internal wifi cards because of inadvertent shielding caused by the pc case. even with the antennae outside the case, you can still position it in a way that your pc case will shield your antennae from your router signal, wheras the usb adapters are el-cheapo and can be strung a short distance away from the pc to a radio-friendly location

Hey /g/. I'm wondering what would be a perfect laptop for someone who has really greasy skin? I can't really wash myself (other than using wipes) due to essentially having an allergy to water, so I'm often quite slick.
