If you woke up from a coma, it's 2018, Microsoft is the biggest contributor to opensource, digital rights advocates are mostly using Apple computers and one hugely popular Linux distribution is the biggest threat against our privacy.

@ploum
And ploum is exclusively posting in english on Twitter™ instead of Mastodon as he used to. :p

@ploum
>one hugely popular Linux distribution is the biggest threat against our privacy
With explicit opt-out when first installed and not in other DEs brunches. Not ideal, mind you, but
>is the biggest threat against our privacy
is overblown as fuck

@ploum biggest contributor to #OpenSource or to the #Linux kernel ?

The following result in 4 lines on my #Debian #Sid:

zgrep -E '(at |@)microsoft.com' /usr/share/doc/*/changelog.gz

Maybe someone will tell me that's because #Debian only provides too old packages 😏

@ploum my bad. Forgot about Android. A linux distro given without root access is no linux distribution.

@ploum this is amusing as an ironic quip, but you don't actually think any of these things are true, do you?

@ploum » and one hugely popular Linux distribution is the biggest threat against our privacy. « Äh - which?
