27% of Windows users are still running Windows 7. They need to stop NOW.
Just witnessed a whole conversation on a non-nerdy chat group about the evils of Facebook and big tech in connecting with people, finding local events and so on. No one has the perfect answer yet, but it's so encouraging to see that non-techy people are looking for better answers and a bunch of them already refuse to use FB.
What this means practically: Apple will say that privacy is a fundamental human right, but their actions show they don’t believe that right extends to over a billion people in China.
Google will say they value their privacy and while they seem to do a good job keeping your actual data to themselves, it fuels a massive industry of invasive and dangerous data collection and ad targeting.
Microsoft will say they love Linux, and some of their current actions back that up—but they are so massive they could pivot at any point to attempt to crush any threat to their business models.
While I don’t believe a corporation is a moral entity (they are amoral groups whose actions reflect the morality of those in power), I do believe any massive company will not value individuals above all other interests.
I also don’t believe it’s immoral to use products by these companies; you gotta live your life. But whenever possible, we should be redirecting our support to truly open source and free software efforts from independent and smaller organizations.
@Wolf480pl I'm a fan of systemd actually :) it is free software and it is quite modular, contrary to some beliefs. Different distros ship with different sets of systemd components. Wouldn't hurt for it to be even more modular, such as supporting elogind (being able to use logins without systemd the PID 1) upstream.
