Stallman speaks cryptocurrency gnu taler

It has vocal support from GNU Project founder Richard Stallman.[11] Stallman has described the program as “designed to be anonymous for the payer, but payees are always identified.”[12] In a paper published in Security, Privacy, and Applied Cryptography Engineering, GNU Taler is described as meeting ethical considerations – the paying customer is anonymous while the merchant is identified and taxable.[13][14] An implementation is provided by Taler Systems SA.[15][16]

    “If code is law, then the real question we must face is: who should control the code?” says Dr. Stallman. “Can it be left to a few companies to secretly do whatever they please with the code, regardless of the interests of the public at large?

    “Software today can control the way the world lives, communicates and does business,” Dr. Stallman continues. “Proprietary software is typically secret—you can’t change it, or even see what it really does.

    You can’t tell if it has back doors, or sends your personal information to a server on the net. You cannot even prevent changes that are detrimental, such as a future version unable to access the files you are saving today.

    “A choice of proprietary programs is just a choice of masters.

  • Let’s encourage that in all prudent ways.

    Here are the suggestions I gave to Microsoft.

    • Help keep computers unlocked (no “secure boot” that restricts what systems we can run). Truly secure boot means YOU specify what system is allowed to run in your computer.
    • Help make peripherals safe — no back doors in their embedded software. This applies to keyboards, cameras, disks and memory sticks, since they contain computers and with preinstalled software that can be replaced through a universal back door.

      Crackers do that, installing malware into them, which becomes an advanced persistent threat. I can explain more if desired.

    • Publicly take back Microsoft’s attacks on copyleft made in the 2000s. Ballmer called the GPL a “cancer”.

    But the fact that people make nonfree software is no reason not to show them reasons why software should be free.

    I don’t think Microsoft invited me with a view to seduction, or opposition research, or trickery, or misrepresention. I think some Microsoft executives are seriously interested in the ethical issues surrounding software. They may also be interested in carrying out some of the specific suggestions/requests I presented.
    I started with a list of actions that would help the free software community, and which I thought Microsoft might be amenable to, before stating the free software philosophy in the usual way. I think there is a chance that Microsoft might change some practices in ways that would help the Free World practically, even if they do not support us overall.

    It is only a chance; I would not try to estimate the probability.

    “Free Software: The Free Market/Free Speech Solution to the Microsoft Antitrust Problem” on October 10, 2001

    Washington, D.C., USAMonday, September 24, 2001 – Dr.

    How Free Software created products, like the GNU/Linux operating system, that compete with Microsoft’s Windows on heavy-duty servers in the back office? Why the principles of the new Intellectual Age are fundamentally different from those of the previous Industrial Age? Whether Software Freedom can restore innovation and creativity to the software industry and provide a way to solve the Microsoft antitrust question? Whether Microsoft’s .Net initiative will inevitably continue its monopoly? Or will Free Software’s DotGNU project break the Microsoft stranglehold and liberate computer users to control the software they use?

    Tony Stanco said, “We invited Microsoft to send a representative to join in the conference, because it seemed unfortunate that Craig Mundie, VP of Microsoft, has not yet had the opportunity to debate on the subject of the GPL face to face with Dr.
