What part of the GPL allows Red Hat or IBM to prevent their customers from redistributing the source. Clearly RH can attach whatever license they to their own code, but source that is GPL needs to redistributable.

> They should learn a lesson in humility from King Canute
No need to look at history, just across the border to Hong Kong where our illustrious leaders are battling to prevent the Omicron version of Covid 19 from taking a hold. From where I sit and have been sitting since Jan 3rd, since we're not allowed to visit restaurants after 6pm or bars, gyms, theatres... it doesn't seem to be working.
Maybe a taste in China will change things, though I doubt it.
I wouldn't have used "Turbocharging", seems 1980s to me. "Enabling" might be better.
Also "achievement to achieve", doesn't read well either.
The code reviewer in me suggests...
"We seek to level up the NHS Digital Vision to synergise brand awareness and achieve a fusion of technology and people, enhancing our ability to achieve our aspirational missions and realise a global Britain as we build back better"
How, sending a "gun boat"?
The actual border between Lower Kowloon and the New Territories is Boundary Street. Short of building a wall (Think Berlin Wall) down it and cutting off over 50% of the people in HK, HM Government realized there was no way HK would work in that situation. There were enough problems with Chinese administered Kowloon City before it was demolished.
BTW, I live 250 metres south of Boundary Street.
"Attaching a tractor-fed Epson LX-80 dot matrix impact printer was the height of luxury (second only to plugging in a floppy disk drive)."
Me, me, me. You are my technology doppelganger, however, you missed a step. On BBC Micro, which it seems like you're alluding to, you needed a Disk Interface, preferable DFS 0.9 with an Intel 8271 floppy disk controller, then a disk drive could be attached.
Ahh just read your bio, "intern 2018". I suspect the venerable Beeb was long gone, I'll mumble to myself. Error excused.
I remember the excellent Toshiba Satellite laptops of yesterday year. Dad had one for taking on site. In around 2010, I bought an NB200 netbook, which I still have. Lovely quality, if a little slow now.
In 2012, I bought a Satellite p875-102, oh dear. Within a week it was having the back space key repaired and over the years; the USB ports have corroded, the hinges broken and the speakers disintegrated. Despite being an i7 with 16Gb of RAM it surfs the web at 90C (Tjunction) and has been stood on bricks to keep the underside cool for years.
I guess the accountants were involved in the design.
