in addition to that elementary guy being really stupid about policy, he's also legally wrong. it is totally a thing in trademark law that a trademark can become genericized, but derived products using the trademark to refer to the product is not part of that process. if anything it's actually reinforcing the trademark. (trademark law does totally give him to right to object to using the trademark in derived product names, but that just gets back to what he's doing being bad policy)

elementary my dear doxxin'



posting a public legal document in question is of course not doxxing, it's also the top result for 'elementary llc trademark' on google right now so lol

quote:

The USPTO makes this data available for search by the public so that individuals can locate ownership information for intellectual property, much the same way a county might make real estate property ownership information available.

doxxed by the USPTO :argh:

my gamebox windows decided to stop updating itself again last year, and today it decided to randomly stop booting so i finally had the excuse i was looking for since ditching nvidia and nuked it

installed deb11 instead, everything works out of the box and the games run smoother lmfao. thanks, valve

he went to the qcs school of internet discourse, so itís an understandable yet unforgivable error with regard to knowing what doxxing is.

Phoronix is pretty shite, except that it posts when something interesting pops up on a bunch of mailing lists and release notes that I can't be arsed to watch.

Never, ever, ever go into the comments, or look at benchmarks on that site. Especially not file system benchmarks, jfc.

agreed

most file systems on linux is tweakable according to what workload you're running on them, so it's generally quite difficult to benchmark those in a fair way
