Who are these companies? Never heard of any of them

Guys this is an april fools for those who are too stuck in politics to see it.

Ubuntu has turned bothersome as of late so i Wouldn’t really recommend it but i do recommend most derivatives

Yep, that’s the idea, and then you make it available for everyone and call it a Distro, as many have done so. It unfortunately just works like that (discovered how to see replies today)

I love this, am really happy to find a new instance to follow

Well, they’re made with Gitea, so you can always setup your own instance or use another instance of gitea

I’d go with setting up or using someone else’s Nextcloud or you use Protonmail. Everything comes at a cost, your only option to be truly private is to not exist.

Not everything Free means you’re the product, do research on the email provider, do research on the company. Relying on “You’re the product” is going to be complicated, also paying for anything doesn’t make you less of a product, just look at games.

Set up your own emails or procure an Open-Source provider

Depends on the App, some KDE apps will make you install KDE as a dependency regardless of everything.

DE is the shell, the difference between them is this:

Development rules, Development philosophies, Language made in, Purpose of creation, and the differing features.

KDE can be highly customizable, to the point you could make it look like Gnome, but it’ll never run nor be Gnome. Gnome is more closed off, any customization is reliant on extensions. LXQT allows you a more windows XP look without customization to the level of KDE, but you have more modularity with certain parts of it. XFCE can have plugins to Thunar, and the desktop of xfdesktop, all panels are custimzable to look more like what you want too, but there’s not that giant variety of Themes, unlike KDE.

On the terms of philosophy: You can’t just yank a project to a direction you want, you will either Fork that (making another DE) or you will make your own DE to make it so you’ll command the direction and philosophy. This is the most complete answer you’re ever going to get without having a multiple page essay

There’s a great reddit app alternative called Stealth, you won’t need to log in and you can see the content you want to see, you may download it from F-Droid

The last thing is true, i block first-party and third-party cookies in Vivaldi

Unsafe languages? They’re one of the most used and one of the fastest

My personal best games:

Portal 1&2 Hearts of Iron 4 Binding of Isaac Rebirth (with(out) all dlcs) Stellaris Elite Dangerous Most of the old Lego games Clone Hero

Well, if it’s open source, you can fork and remove the trackers, that’s the beauty of FOSS. Also FOSS is not inherently connected to privacy, it’s just that FOSS

I’ve completely ditched Discord because it feels like a dteriorating software, basically my only messaging app currently is Telegram because Matrix itself is not ready for what i wanted to use it for

Agree with all points, but sorry not leaving discord for something half-baked as Matrix (That bot genuinely seems good), or Telegram for something featureless as Signal. Privacy is important so long as it also is convenient. Granny isn’t abandoning facebook til everyone she knows has, that’s how things work, unfortunately.

Right, so having to comply with swiss laws to log IP after the request by swiss authorities (otherwise the company is gonna be persecuted for it) and saying “We support activism” is all you need to step away from proton as a company. Ok, you do you, but i know for a fact i’m not using Signal which is a glorified SMS messenger and has literally same encryption to Proton, Matrix which is badly designed, and Briar (never heard of it). So how do i send job applications? How do i register to forums? Sorry having an email is good and convenient, if your intent is to break the law, please stop using widely known services. (Breaking the law doesn’t not inherently make you a villain, governments can be evil, however consequences happen people).
