Three conclusions to draw from #Google denying #Huawei access to software: (1) The #FSFE urges users to use Free Software operating systems and applications on their computing devices. (2) Governments and especially the European Union should invest more resources in #FreeSoftware to gain independence from large enterprises and other states. (3) The FSFE urges companies to use as much Free Software as possible in their supply chains. https://fsfe.org/news/2019/news-20190520-01.en.html #pmpc
And there is one more : use Arm processors and not Intel or Amd. With Arm, Russia and China still have access to processors, not like in the past. Arm belongs to asian interests!
@bjoern I think #Huawei is a matter of Free Software and it's a matter of Free or Open Hardware, too. Governments and especially the European Union should invest more resources in #FreeSoftware and #OpenHardware. If users don't get updates etc. for political reasons, it becomes clear how much dependent the world is now on individual US manufacturers and their vendor lock-in. This can't be good in the long term.
@bjoern it's not hard to imagine something similar happening to a Microsoft or an Adobe.
