Dont over-React to the Facebook patents license

Recently, Apache re-classified code under Facebook's BSD+ Patents license to "Category X," effectively banning it from future contributions to Apache Foundation projects. The move has re-ignited controversy over the patent grant, but like many events in the open source community, the controversy is more partisan than practical. In fact, it's unlikely the move will affect adoption of React.js, and the criticisms of the BSD+Patent grant mostly don't survive the scrutiny of reason.

  • Opensource.com (Posted by bob on Sep 11, 2017 12:59 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
As an engineering leader, I value trust and believe that individual contributors should be involved in architectural and high-level technical decision making.

What happens when you take Ubuntu 17.10, a new desktop interface (one that overlays on top of KDE), snap packages, and roll them all up into a pseudo rolling release? You get Nitrux. First and foremost, Nitrux makes use of snap packages; so installing software is handled a bit differently than the norm. Even though Nitrux is based on Ubuntu, apt install isn’t what you want to use (although it is available).
