They use FLOSS for other purposes, but this could be a mistake.
At least from a security perspective they should remove proprietary software, as others like the Chinese had done.

Friendly reminder that flash is gonna be dead in less than a month and alongside it a large chunk of the old internet in the form of flash animations and games,Because the software is old and full of so many security flaws that Adobe just can't be arsed to fix it anymore at this point so they're just ending support altogether.

What does /tech/ think of this? Is it a good riddance?

Flash was shit, even when I was a kid, and don't get me started on the programming language it used that was completely reworked with every new edition.

Fuck Macromedia, fuck Adobe and fuck nostalgiafags. We can emulate this shit now anyway.

Adobe is full of greedy fucks who rely on this garbage trend of having "software as a service" be their business model, anybody who pirates Photoshop should knows this.
The real question is why don't let they let anybody else take Flash off their hands?

Second hand or refurbished Samsung flagship model like S5 or S7 installed with LineageOS and properly degoogled is the answer you are looking for.

The online guides are easy and Samsung also provides Odin tool for loading the recovery which is only for windows, but an alternative to heimdall.

Seconding. The way to prevent apps from violating your privacy is to refrain from installing garbage on your phone. It's definitely worth to have a non-gimped OS that makes the device a tiny computer, rather than an appliance with more computing power than it can use.

This being said, I do understand people being mad at Purism for their misleading marketing. They're making an expensive toy for nerds who want a combination phone and single-board computer, while marketing it as a privacy-oriented phone for normies. This isn't going to end well.

>US national security agencies issued a joint statement Wednesday acknowledging a "significant and ongoing hacking campaign" that's affecting the federal government. It's still unclear how many agencies are affected or what information hackers might have stolen so far, but by all accounts the malware is extremely powerful. According to analysis by Microsoft and security firm FireEye, both of which were also infected with the malware, it gives hackers broad reach into impacted systems.
>On Thursday, Politico reported that systems at the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration were also affected. Also on Thursday, Microsoft said it had identified more than 40 customers that were targeted in the hack. More information is likely to emerge about the hack and its aftermath.

One of the worst parts about mass surveillance is that the people doing it are embarrassingly bad at securing the data they're hoarding.

I always like hardware manufacturing over software.

Whenever I've visited mills or shops, even once a real industrial smelter and forge, the machines and ambience were amazing. Some of this tech runs well even though it's over 100 years old.

Recently I visited an old 19th century factory that had been converted into a fabricator centre with 3D printing and CNC milling

Seven hundred million lines of code written over a period of thirteen years. That's how large the CIA's Marble framework was at the time of its 2017 Wikileaks "Vault7" exposure. At Bill Binney's estimate of $50 per line, that's a $35 billion program.

Ever since learning this I have been attempting to find programs of a similar size. The Linux kernel is currently roughly 27.8 million LOC. Windows Vista was 50 million LOC. Mac OS X v10.4 was 85 million LOC. Supposedly some "high-end" proprietary car software is at the 100 million LOC range. And according to many sources, the entirety of Google internet services is 2 billion lines of codes–but I don't think that really counts because it's hardly a discrete piece of software.

So is the Marble framework one of the largest pieces of software ever created? Is there nothing else that compares?
>>

 No.6230

is LoC really sound metric to use for measuring size of a project? Language like C can really blow up when you attempt to replicate object oriented programming concepts (systemd code base is verbose not bloat IMO). I don't know anything about proprietary car software but if they are one of those real-time control things that needs to be written in assembly or very low level constructs, they will also blow up in terms of LoC.

if there is a way to measure information density of a program by complexity of feature and then combine it with number of features, that will be really cool application of information theory.

well OK then I'm just counting number of instructions of binary but there could be a way to measure this in more abstract ways through flow analysis or something

As someone who got into a job that had machine learning knowledge as a requirement, this is completely true. They had a database of all their phone calls and wanted me to improve an algorithm that tried to determine the mood of the person they called to get to sell them useless trash.
