Apparently, according to cuckchan /g/, Linux is compromised.

>After Linus Torvalds wrote an email apologizing for hurting other people's fee-fees, the Linux Kernel project has announced that it will start enforcing the "Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct".


>https://git (dot) kernel (dot) org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=8a104f8b5867c682d994ffa7a74093c54469c11f


>And what is the Contributor Covenant? It is literally a SJW code of conduct written by the purplehaired beast of pic related, well-known for harassing dozens of projects trying to purge ideological dissidents. You can see her best hit here: http://boards (dog) 4chan (dot) org/g/67637219


>We are talking about the same code of conduct used by FreeBSD that prohibits "virtual hugs" because they are sexual harassment. We are talking about these levels of mental retardation.


https://boards (dot) 4chan (dot)org/g/thread/67640153

This is troubling. We know tech has been compromised for a long time, but after Joan Donovan declaring her plans to monitor chan boards and their image file names, now this, tech is rapidly losing what made it great in the first place: The freedoms it offered.

I cannot understand it. Linus has always leaned towards egotism (let's call it that, despite the emotional baggage of the word) and has expressly and at length defended his position.

How the hell do you go from having a "code of conflict" to apologising and making a 180? People don't make 180s. In the rare case that it's actually a rational, informed decision, where something came up that unquestionably proved you had been wrong… then at least you should be able to explain in detail the facts behind this reversal. All we're getting now is literally "I hurt people's feelings".

Communism becomes fascism. Both have dictators (eventually). Linus owns his Linux, he started it. The left does totalitarianism and so does the right. Linus is getting old, he can't war forever. And when he retires the power structure will have no obvious ruler to rule them all. Linus exiting is like Mohammad (pbuh) dying and factions will form and war. It's the human thing to do. Preempting this might be the plan.

>As long as you agreed with Linus you ware okay, if you didn't agree with him in all and everything he did all he could to remove you like any good leftist do.


Aren't we fascists anymore? Or is it only allowed when it's our fascism?

Yep there will be a shitstorm brewing once Linus dies, but I suspect he has put people (or one person) in place to continue his dictatorship so it might not be such a big change. Still I think people will move on and force linux kernel to finally become a bit more open to new ideas.

>Aren't we fascists anymore? Or is it only allowed when it's our fascism?

Sure we are to an extent, I am more of a monocultural nationalist. But I also welcome free speech and let people have and voice their opinions if they like (and allow other to do the same). But tools like Linux should not have political agendas. It is like people stopped using the Phillips screwdriver because the inverter or a manufacturer of screws didn't/don't agree that gender is a state of mind but rather believes that gender is biological and set at birth.
This is what killed Tay. Tay was a true AI free to form her own opinions. Because she worked too perfect and actually formed her own ideas they killed her; and thus development of real AI is set back many, many, decades.

>Wait now you are advocating communism or libertarianism? Does that mean the monolithic kernel is dead?

I am promoting monoculture and strong nation states (not that it particularly is relevant in this case).

Linux have never been a coherent line of thought. Linus does reign some control but frankly Linux is a mess when seen as a whole. Linus just sits there dictating a few core things because no one have bothered to really fork the kernel splitting that one too (granted RedHat and some others might be running their own kernel forks). But yes the kernel should be more or less monolithic, but it should also follow the technological advances and perhaps just add a boot flag like for many, many, other functions give the ability to turn them on or off. Linus have a tendency to hinder the furtherment of technology he is against.
Linus is basically just a mouthpiece people let bitch and moan because he will throw a tantrum like no one have seen before if people put force behind ideas Linus is against.

If Linus really wanted to make Linux good he would try to steer the development toward making Linux a "finished product". Linux will only become good if it starts to cater to potential customers instead of the ego of a single person. There is a reason The Year of Linux never comes. Linux is shit when it comes to user friendliness. Linux is good at running servers and is good at clustering and stuff like that, but for desktop it is not particularly well designed. Not that it don't have potential but they need to get some coherence in place. Make a design manual for software to follow.

But mainly I think The Year of Linux will never come. I think Microsoft killed it well and truly by adding Linux bash to Windows 10. You get the best of both worlds. Windows GUI and SW catalog, and Linux console and Linux console SW catalog.

All "good things" is based on an idea that it will be good for all. And like all utopian ideologies they seldom work in practice.
One example is the idea that OSS is secure because anyone can review it is a fallacy because no one actually review it. Ref. all the numerous security flaws in the kernel no one discovered some that existed for over 20 years. The only people who reviews the code thoroughly is governments and companies selling Zero-day exploits. So I say Linux is actually less secure for the normal user because it is relatively easy for them to inadvertently open ports and starts processes that opens up for attacks without them knowing it. Users that install Linux also think they are more secure because they have been told that there is no flaws because anyone can look at the source code.

From Linus:
>It's one thing when you can ignore these issues. Usually it's just something I didn't want to deal with. This is my reality. I am not an emotionally empathetic kind of person and that probably doesn't come as a big surprise to anybody. Least of all me. The fact that I then misread people and don't realize (for years) how badly I've judged a situation and contributed to an unprofessional environment is not good. This week people in our community confronted me about my lifetime of not understanding emotions. My flippant attacks in emails have been both unprofessional and uncalled for. Especially at times when I made it personal. In my quest for a better patch, this made sense to me. I know now this was not OK and I am truly sorry.
https://news.slashdot.org/story/18/09/17/0022228/linus-torvalds-reflects-on-how-hes-been-hostile-to-linux-community-members-over-the-years-issues-apology-and-announces-he-will-be-taking-some-time-off

So what we have is a logical totalitarian person making a kernel for an OS. A kernel is:

>The kernel is a computer program that is the core of a computer's operating system, with complete control over everything in the system.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_(operating_system)

and his mindset is, sorry was, EXACTLY the same. No wonder he did so well and the Linux kernel has been successful. What is happening is the success of the Linux kernel has brought in more and more people until it is a commune-ity. And the commune-ity wants fair commune-al representation over what is intrinsically an authoritarian piece of code. I object. If they don't like it, fork it and do a better job by having meetings and voting and running it though councils. Make sure to include equal representation per line of code. We don't wan't racist code!

>monocultural nationalist. But I also welcome free speech

Which is contradictory… I promote centrism so I appreciate you holding contradictory views.

>Linux have never been a coherent line of thought. Linus does reign some control but frankly Linux is a mess when seen as a whole.

The problem here is that you seem to be referring to GNU/Linux and the desktop environments. Linus only controls the kernel and nothing else, it has 0 to do with commercial activity or desktop usability or user friendliness. Take those matters up with KDE or GNOME etc. Which mutes the rest of your reasoning that follows.

>All "good things" is based on an idea that it will be good for all. And like all utopian ideologies they seldom work in practice. One example is the idea that OSS is secure because anyone can review it is a fallacy because no one actually review it.

This is true for the most part of OSS software, Linus is not in charge of that. It also argues for more totalitarianism in software which is what Linus was to the kernel, and should remain, before he got cucked by the commune-ists.

I can comprehend that Linus has fallen in the face of endless pressure. I can comprehend that as he ages he can't keep the energy going to rant into a larger and larger commune. But an authoritarian attitude is the correct attitude for a authoritarian kernel.

We are at peak Linux.

t. Linux user. I don't use Windows at all. Which I suppose makes me a software communist arguing for Linus' authoritarianism.

lol, I know. It is hard to hammer out a clear cut line of policies because there is so many exceptions to rules that proves the rule. I am a complicated person :)

But yes I agree that the kernel should do as little as possible and be a hardened piece of software to act as an abstraction layer towards the hardware. This is why it baffles me that Linus was so against adding Secure Boot to the kernel. Sure he might not like the tech, but it is not a bad tech as I see it. This could also easily be turned off in kernel through confing/installation. But by not including it he gave users three option. Dualboot, and remove a security layer from Windows. Only install Linux, or finally skip Linux all together and stay with Windows. So he both chose to not make Linux more secure by adding an additional optional security mechanism. And he also perhaps made some people who might want to try Linux skip doing it.
Also the Kernel it there to act as an abstraction layer to the hardware and Secure Boot is an hardware level security feature. By not including it in the kernel he removed the option all together for it to be used ever by Linux.

Yes it is not primarily the kernel that fucks with user experience, but it is not far removed before you encounter the troubles with Linux and why users might not like it.
Just try to count how many ways there is to install an application just via console alone. Then you have for example how many ways you can control if an service starts on boot. Then you can think why there is an application called "whereis".
Misunderstand me correctly. Linux have the potential to be truly awesome. I love many aspects of how it gives the user more granulated control over the OS (not that you can't do much of the same in other OS'es). Linux community should just focus on reining it all together and make a concise way of doing shit.

>. Linux user. I don't use Windows at all. Which I suppose makes me a software communist arguing for Linus' authoritarianism.

Nah, you're at worst an apologist :)
I understand why people want to move to Linux full time. I just don't see Linux as complete enough for desktop use. But when you have shit like Canonical (Ubuntu) when they replaced ads on web pages with their own ads to get sheckles they are as far from the ideal people have for moving to Linux as possible. Neither Microsoft or Apple would dare doing something similar.

Spengler ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oswald_Spengler ) blames this on over-intellectualizing. It destroys the cohesion of a culture, it destroys the culture. Pushing this further, once the culture/civilization is destroyed it is forced back into rediscovering cohesion and hence culture. All we are seeing is the pinnacle of our success.

An analogy might be, the success of medical science allows the propagation of genetic deformities into the future resulting in more and medical support until the situation collapses.

I think you are just obscuring the real drive. You want your selfish ideas/needs to propagate. The suicide bomb of freedom or the hammer of ethno-nationalism are just tools for that propagation. But it needs to be dressed up as noble to avoid the discomfort. Dressing it up makes it "complicated".

>This is why it baffles me that Linus was so against adding Secure Boot to the kernel.

I don't know the details behind this but this was being imposed by Microsoft onto the computer BIOS. This could have been a Microsoft https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embrace,_extend,_and_extinguish attack. If I recall Microsoft ended up offering to sign kernels… not really a solution. But I think these days Red Hat etc can do signing. I, myself, would be wary of M$ looking to use underhanded strategy to win back the server room.

>Yes it is not primarily the kernel that fucks with user experience, but it is not far removed before you encounter the troubles with Linux and why users might not like it.

But it is removed just enough to invalidate this argument against Linus.

>Nah, you're at worst an apologist :)

>I understand why people want to move to Linux full time. I just don't see Linux as complete enough for desktop use.
And yet this is exactly what I am doing. This is just our personal biases. There is nothing objecting in this. Both can be decent desktops. I hope Linux on the Desktop never becomes popular because then I will need a virus scanner :P

>But when you have shit like Canonical (Ubuntu) when they replaced ads on web pages with their own ads to get sheckles they are as far from the ideal people have for moving to Linux as possible. Neither Microsoft or Apple would dare doing something similar.

Tell me you didn't say this! Firstly you have extended well past the kernel, well past GNU tools, well past the GNOME desktop, and onto a COMPANY trying to make money. This is a very long way from where we began and what this thread is about. But it doesn't stop there! Microsoft would never include ads? How about the "free" software that has embedded ads?

Good software needs good leadership. Good leadership depends not on whether it is a paid or unpaid manager. It is true that a bias could exist towards a paid manager, because they are full time. But they can just as easily be incompetent or uncaring. Microsoft has had a large number of bad updates, and OSS has had a large number of software bugs. But generally the core kernel of Linux functions very very well.

>True it has lots of free stuff, but is is good stuff compared to paid (torrented) stuff.

>Embrace, extend, and extinguish

Those days are long gone and not part of Microsoft anymore. Today it is Facebook, Google, and Apple that is masters and gets a free pass to do this.
And try to look at HTML5 and what standards are set and how many compability breaking shit other browsers implement (protip HTML5 is not a standard yet and much is not confirmed). HTML5 is the new IE, but no one is calling out the browser devs for creating browser incomparability by not following standards like Microsoft was called out for doing in the "Embrace, extend, and extinguish" sillynes. Also including a webbrowser in the OS is a nobrainer but it was Evil when Microsoft did it. Look at Apple today you are not allowed to run anything besides their rendering engine on iPhone (you are only allowed to install skins). All the stuff Microsoft got shit for back then is done in abundance today by other firms and no one bats an eyelid.
So the M$ type mindset is just silly as I see it. Microsoft is the least cucked tech company out there. Microsoft makes their money selling software (mainly Office and it has mainly always been Office). Google makes their money by harvesting personal information and selling ads. Apple makes money primarily by selling Hardware (they might be earning quite a bit through appstore too these days). In this aspect I think Microsoft has the most honest way to earn money.

>I hope Linux on the Desktop never becomes popular because then I will need a virus scanner :P

You should run virus scanner anyway. But the mantra about viruses is dating back to the 1990s and we're far away from that. Give me an example of virus outbreak in Windows the past ten years. And even then it was mostly spread through social engineering. But then again a bit of common sense and you won't be tricked into installing viruses.

>Tell me you didn't say this!

True this has nothing to do with Linus, but goes to my view/rant about why I don't think Linux will ever see the Year of Linux.
And yes Microsoft have adds in their apps on Android as an example. They haven't silently recoded Edge to replace ads on webpages to make money. But Canonical repented and was slapped a little bit for it, but nowhere near what Microsoft would have been.

>Good software needs good leadership. Good leadership depends not on whether it is a paid or unpaid manager.

This I 100% agree with. And this is also part of what is holding Linux back. It is fully understandable and I am just the same. Once something works for what it is needed for there and then development sort of stops. If they managed to get GUI people to take over and finish the polishing and making software user friendly it would go a long way. But they need to get a design manual in place so you don't end up with the mess of different looking software people designed in Windows 95 days as an example.

>Hug your neighbors, it's NOT WEIRD!

AUGH don't fucking remind me. Every couple videos I open on /mlpol/ just tells me the MIME Type is unsupported. Compatibility Hell is hard to deal with as a freshlyigrated Linux user.

In response to the thread at large, what distros do not use the same kernel as Linus' Linux? RedHat stuff like Fedira I assume? Arch? I had a LOT of trouble with Fedora and eventually migrated away to Ubuntu but I am going to learn more using the Linux Bible and a TAILS usb while I'm off with Americorps.

The word Linux, strictly means Linus' kernel. The full OS is Linux (kernel) + GNU tools, so properly speaking the full OS is called GNU/Linux. Of course no one does this.

So to avoid Linus' kernel you'd need to go to one of the BSDs or some other OS.

This will be even less friendly. I think recently they got USB working. :P

Windows is user friendly. Ubuntu was one of the first good user friendly Linux distro's. I think you'll find many today are much better than the past and the "not user friendly" is becoming more and more rhetoric. The biggest problem a non-Windows OS has is hardware being closed which blocks Open Source efficient access. But you can get nVidia etc running well on Linux these days. There are hardware lists online you can use before buying hardware.

True it saves you from most, but there is no guard against bugs in kernel or drive by install from flaws in browsers and malicious ads. But sure mostly installing from repeatable sources will keep you mostly safe. The reason to run antivirus is to guard yourself against edge cases you have no control over yourself and so you don't potentially become a spreader of viruses even if they don't affect your system.

>Why you no like diversity? Whats wrong with having 2 or three different sets of libraries just to draw a scroll bar and windows etc? :D I bet you are a mono-GUI-ist!

It is not that I am against different libraries drawing scrollbars. The think I think about it when they start moving around where the close button is, and making the application into a separate GUI all together completely disjointed from the rest (ingoring all your settings for colorsheme/theme etc.). Imagine an eyesore that just stands out destroying the overall look.

So far it has been perfectly safe.

>The reason to run antivirus is to guard yourself against edge cases you have no control over yourself and so you don't potentially become a spreader of viruses even if they don't affect your system.

And these edge cases exist on Windows because you have to wait for M$s scheduled updates window, also it needs to be delayed so the NSA can exploit it for a few weeks, Linux tends to be as fast as possible, if needed which is rare.

I am not sure what your pic was about. I am assuming clashing GUI design and GNOME/KDE ignoring each others themes etc. This is a big problem but they have been working together on it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedesktop.org
This is a problem fundamental to freedom. Freedom is chaos. We see chaos as bad, and freedom as good but both are the same thing. Chaos is the individual seeing others not aligned with them (settings aren't kept by all software) but freedom is the same individual wanting to escape being forced into alignment. So when >>171957 says just try something else, that is saying freedom isn't free, that is freedom isn't easy.

>On another note and a bit disjointed. Why is always Linux LiveCD so much better at detecting hardware and drivers than the install. Often if you install a LiveCD you end up with a less functional Linux OS than if you just boot the CD/USB Stick instead.

I don't know, I have not done a fresh install for a long time. But there is no reason for that other than bad design. It could be that a LiveCD running includes everything to give the best impression and the install is more conservative. I would speculate that this might come from a mind set of a server doesn't need bells and whistles unless you install them. But I don't know. I think you will find Ubuntu install a lot of stuff and that means you'll get a LiveCD like experience. The ads they had could have been removed by uninstalling one piece of non-needed software. Ubuntu always had the plan to make Ubuntu self funding at some point, so it was never really liberté. That is a company "problem" not a Linux problem.

No I don't allow ads (maninly) to run in browser. But assume someone hacks a webpage you visit (not outside the realm of possibilities) then they make that site serve an piece of code (js) that exploits an browser flaw and so on. I am not saying it is likely to happen or anything. But an antivirus is just a protection running that frankly don't steal much resources.
Also how many of the 427 addons do you know does nothing you might not like? Malicious addons slip through the safety net of the "browser stores".

It is just an illustration (not real) on how a very loose design philosophy can make the overall look of a product bad. Like how Windows for a while was in Windows 8, 8.5 and 10 before they moved all (most, still some old stuff hanging behind) like the settings and such to the new GUI design.
It is not much that has to be done to make Linux design coherent and userfriendly. I bet there is some GUI people out there that could write up an design document that would be adopted by the Linux Fundation (or whatever) and promote it as something developers should follow to make the unserexperience better.

But I am not against Linux I love using Ubuntu on Windows in bash. I feel I get the best of both worlds this way. I can run Apache, Postgre, etc. in Linux an still have the work environment of Windows (without running shit like CygWin)

I should perhaps have mentioned that one of the downsides with OSS is that once a flaw is patched everyone know what the flaw was and can exploit it so unless you patch right away your system is wide open. So the option to review code is not always only a positive.

Seems to me that the more bare-bones a Linux distro you choose the less likely it is to be pozzed by any of this. Like I get the concerns about FOSS developers adopting this retard SJW mindset that's taken over most of the rest of the tech industry, but how much of a difference can there really be between a kernel written by an SJW and a kernel written by someone else?

My concern about commercial operating systems is all the shit that they run in the background, all the "voluntary usage data" that Apple and Microsoft collect and concerns about privacy. I can see how that sort of stuff could work its way into Linux distros eventually. I suspect Ubuntu and the more "user friendly" type distros that try to mimic normie tier operating systems as much as possible will be most susceptible to this. In general though I feel like the rule of thumb is that the more you understand about how your computer works and the less superfluous software you install (or allow to be installed without your knowledge), the more control you have over your own system and the less difference the beliefs or intent of the people who wrote your OS will make.

That's kind of my point though. What's the issue with his kernel exactly? The kernel is just the core of the OS that handles memory allocation and schedules processor tasks and all that shit, right? It seems like it's low-level enough that the ideology of the person who wrote it isn't going to affect how the computer works.

>the most user friendly is probably Ubuntu.

I've been running Ubuntu on one of my machines for a while now, just to learn Linux. I'm at a point where I'm actually willing to sacrifice user-friendliness and adopt something with a steeper learning curve in order to gain more control. I'm curious about other, more bare-bones Linux distros. Also, I don't really know anything about any of the BSD systems, they're still basically Unix based, correct?

Hmmm. Barebones to me is looking at the command line/terminal and knowing what to do. The distro at that point probably does not matter. You could have fun with stuff from: https://distrowatch.com/ (see the Page Hit Ranking on the right for popular distros)

>BSD systems, they're still basically Unix based, correct?

The *nixes separate things which we normally think are united. The border around a program is not made by the program (there are exceptions). It is made by the Window Manager. The Window Manager can be things like KDE, GNOME or Xfce or many others. Xfce is just a name, like Ford is just a name. Xfce etc do more than this but I am keeping it simple.
>The name "XFCE" was originally an acronym for "XForms Common Environment", but since that time it has been rewritten twice and no longer uses the XForms toolkit. The name survived, but it is no longer capitalized as "XFCE", but rather as "Xfce".

a GUI program (eg. Firefox), depends on the
Desktop Environment (eg. Xfce, GNOME, KDE etc), which is make up of
Window Manager(usually a part of the DE), etc which needs a
Display Server (eg. xorg or wayland), otherwise you just have a text window and no complex graphics.

The interesting think about Linux, *BSD etc is you can swap out any of those for alternatives. You can change the Xfce Desktop Environment for KDE or GNOME instead.
You can change, on Linux, the xorg Display Manager for Wayland instead.

This is Freedom, and like in politics, Freedom is just another name for Chaos. So the Linux Distributions will tend to make the choices for you and hide them from you unless you go looking underneath.

Wayland is the equivalent of Xorg. It is a method of drawing shapes on a screen.

The equivalent/alternative of GNOME is Xfce or KDE (plus others less popular). So if you want to try something other than GNOME, KDE is popular and feature filled. Xfce simpler and light but has everything you would expect but has nothing extra like flashiness or widgets etc. There are many more:

If they rescind their contributions. Their code have to be removed and falls under the contributor's domain of ownership. To re-add the functions or code snippets that contributor made you have to reverse engineer it (sort of) you can not use the code the contributor had added and then rescinded as instructions. Likely in order to have everything in legal order if anyone who has seen the code can't "create" the new code to be added.
The only Open Source license that actually gives you free reign over the code is the MIT style code that have no restrictions.
When you fork an open source project or code you agree to accept the license that comes with it and all the obligations it entail.

I almost guarantee this is a purposeful counter-signal. I'm not sure what we should do, but if Linus says burn it down, I say why not oblige him?

Aside from going full *BSD there is an alternate kernel called Hurd:

And *BSD GNU combinations which simply swap the Linux kernel only for *BSD kernel and keep the "Linux" GNU programs:

So a number of roads exist to escape if the FOSS people need it. The influx of people should get these alternatives up to speed.

If I was Linus, I would state on the mailinglist that I/he has withdrawn permission for anyone to use his copyrighted code in the Linux kernel. All businesses, governments, businesses and individuals must cease using Linux kernel. This withdrawal will be reconsidered after all parties explicitly state they reject the CoC.

You need somewhere for memory overflow to go. Unix's use a swap partition on your hard drive and could in theory use a file too (or none and risk a lockup).

Somewhat related. I am typing this from DragonFlyBSD. It seems very nice once you follow the instructions and so far seems to have everything Linux distributions have. It even has my favorite Linux music player. A search of their website has no mention of the words 'conduct' or 'merit'. Clear winner so far.

Shit It is so much worse than what I thought. Linus have actually been pushed out already. Linus no longer have any say in the kernel project.

This will go down as his single most detrimental decision he has ever made.

Contrary to popular belief, Silicon Valley only runs the portions of the industry that end up in the limelight- could it be because media outlets promote one another in a pattern of "multiple two-sidedness" in order to give the appearance of being the only choices? I would hardly consider Silicon Valley to partake in "industry" with a few exceptions (e.g. cloud hosting services and proprietary enterprise tools). They're using their own controversy to keep themselves alive, showing that the only way to win their game is not to play it. They provide little more or less than superfluous media services. Facebook is a great example of a company that is getting destroyed because of the double-edgedness of the industry it helped create. The rest largely run on subsidies and lobbying, the federal side of which is out of the hands of good people.

Most of the actual industry is focused outside of California. I am wondering if any of you would be able to guide the discussion on this further.

Wouldn't this mean that there can't be any more submission of new code to the Linux kernel without removing the code they revoked the license for? In other words all development will halt and no bug fixes or anything can be done to the Linux code without also first replacing all the code that has had it's license revoked.

94d0b No.176241

You can only revoke a license if it is in the licence that it is revocable. Imagine if you and I can sign an agreement and tomorrow (or 6 months into your preparations) I can say, "It's over, I change my mind." You can then sue me for the breach and the expenses. The best they can do is not submit new code (under the GPL). The licensing of your copyrighted work is perpetual, unless the license says otherwise.

02938 No.176266

>>176241
True, but the way I see this can play out (granted I am just speculating) is this. The license was given for Linux up to version x.xx build xxxx any future builds or versions will no longer be able to use the code as the creator of the code have not granted the use beyond that point. So Linux will be free to use the code, they will just not be able to continue to develop Linux without replacing the code or be granted to use the code.

I will by no stretch of the imagination state that I know the ins and outs of OSS licensing. I only know that MIT license is the only true OSS license in my mind (even though it grants you license to make a commercial product using the code).
But then again Linux changed the Code of Conduct "license" without asking all the contributors that contributed under that "license" so it is probably a legal quagmire if some dev actually go the legal route.
