If MIPS would sell a cubieboard sized SBC, as open as Beagle, Panda or Cubie (more open than the raspberry pi), sign me up.
Looking at the youtube video, that was probably the lousiest landing in the history of the airport. But there are some, particularly me, who would like to buy him a drink.

I know, crazy idea.
Every year, The Slashdot editors go on vacation at the beginning of April.
In place of news, scripts search the web for bad jokes, theonion articles or random text, and post them as news.
Most readers take the day off, and hope that by the evening, the editors are sacked and the site is returned to normal.

Fake news all day.
It is no longer funny.

"Are you trying to say that a change has to be made available the SECOND it is added to the code?"
No. There is a subtle line between copying code for development/testing and distribution (yes internally).
"Copying internally to the company is not distributing the code".
This is the general statement that I disagree with.
If you copy Windows internally to the company, is that ok?
If the company uses a modified gcc compiler, and 1000 or 10000 developers use it to compile code, yes the code is being distributed.
But, as you mention, if I have a gcc patch, and I copy the modified code to others internally for testing, perhaps that's not distributed.
The author mentions that most people think personal use copying is ok.
I would say the same is true of companies, but only for open source, for some reason.
Companies often download open source, modify the software, copy the modified software among hundreds of people, demonstrate the modified software publicly, then say they will release the software when the product is released.
But, there was no copyright or licence that granted the internal copies of the modified software, as the modifications were not published.
If a company used evaluation copies of Windows, internally, copying to hundreds of developers, then demonstrated something publicly obviously on an evaluation copy of windows, what would happen?
Side rant: Often "viral" is mentioned in FUD concerning Open Source, but one should note that regular copyright is also "viral", in the sense that if you make a derivative copy of commercial software (or writing or music
