The EU is starting a full on war on general purpose computing. A proposed law will make it impossible to install custom software on WiFi routers, smartphones and embedded devices!

This is insane. The hearing ends today. Please give your feedback: blog.mehl.mx/2019/protect-free

@forteller I need the details. This is funny. How the legalese will go into law forbidding a person to install software to a device they own and how it penalizes the guilty party and who that is will be interesting. What if a random hacker put the software on my router that I wanted on it? "Your honor, I don't know how it got there. =) Oh, they had information only *I* would know? Interesting - they're good."
