New EU Rules Require ISPs, Telcos To Come Clean Within 24 Hours of Data Breaches

xophos Re:NSA too? (70 comments)

The NSA has government-mandated permission so their access doesn't fall under this law.

This is EU law we are talking about. Please substantiate your claim that the EU government has given the NSA permission.

You are absolutely right.
Your parent misses the obvious.

Sailfish truely open?

xophos xophos writes  |  about 7 months ago

xophos (517934) writes "Jollas SailfishOS is foremost advertized as truely open. Yet from a FOSS perspective that is not really the case. And i'm not talking about drivers and firmware (those are closed too).
The core OS is Linux/Mer and hence open anyway.
But the UI Layer and Most of the core applications remain closed.
How is that truely open?
MacOS has an open source core too you know..."
