Huawei is not the only one. Almost all software companies have some KPI that employees are farming. (speaking from experience here)

It’s probably because those with decision making authority have no idea what open source is and how it works.

That being said, China is a huge contributor to open source. For example Huawei and Alibaba are among top kernel contributors.

Turkey has a pretty ambitious plan for Linuxification. Same with the Münich city government in Germany.

They also released vkd3d 1.4. I wonder if wine and proton will ever merge vkd3d forks.

Steam usebase is huge, around 20-30 million active users at any given time (probably much more in total). They need to ship a lot more Decks to have an impact on the statistics.

But on the good side, there is this: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/06/valve-to-ship-more-than-double-the-number-of-steam-decks-each-week/

The company here has a massive conflict of interest. The US government is a big customer of theirs. There is no reason to take anything they say seriously.

You and I don’t know because we don’t have access to the evidence ourselves. It’s just “Company publishes report supporting the arguments of its large customer”.

No, I’m just saying that I don’t trust the word of American government or their affiliates on this.

Excerpt below: "Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn't be here. Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just kind of turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide that this place isn't for you, and that self-selection is OK with me."

reuters is just reporting on a blog article, and assuming that the people who published that blog are what they say they are.

this is tabloid level nonsense.

Those two rules are good common sense rules.

People watch too much Hollywood. Hollywood is not real life folks.

Which Matrix clients are you using and why?
I managed to convince my friends to give Matrix a try. Among us we span almost all platforms. Any ideas on what clients to use would be much appreciated.

Turns out Twitter's head editor for the Middle East region is a former UK spy.

Rust equivalent for Python's shelve?
Hello all, I'm learning Rust after years of programming mainly in C/C++. Python has a very neat shelve library: https://docs.python.org/3/library/shelve.html It's basically a dict (hash table), but is located on disk instead of memory. It's great for easy persistence and also for working with massive objects that won't fit into memory. Is there anything similar for Rust? I could not find any, but I'm still learning Rust and could have missed it.

Is it now safe to assume that all games now work in Linux?
I remember those dark days when I would check winehq before buying games because I didn't know if they would work in Linux or not. I realized recently that I stopped checking winehq or protondb, because I implicitly assume that everything will "just work". Hard to say when this transition happened, but it feels at least a few years old. Looking at latest stats, the only holdouts appear to be those games that explicitly ban Linux users with some quasi-malware anti-cheat. https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/06/3500-games-now-steam-deck-verified-or-playable/ What a time we live in!

It's so obvious even the mainstream media gets it.

The leader of the opposition was already in house arrest.

US Sanctions are resulting in a chipmaking boom in mainland China.
