For those of you using #vscode / #vscodium and have disabled telemetry:
- Do you trust that code doesn't send any other info to #MSFT?
- Have you validated this with packet capturing/reviewing telemetry.log?
- Is it worth the effort of setting up vscodium as an alternate?
I'm exploring vscode/codium as an alternate to emacs, and I'm reasonably reassured by https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/getstarted/telemetry, however, it IS #microsoft
I guess I'll use vscode for a while and review telemetry.log 1/2
Just created an xmpp account on nixnet.xyz and I'm testing the waters before maybe spinning up my own instance to migrate a few friends out of GroupMe, WhatsApp, etc. Anybody want to add me to send test messages?

#introductions Hi there! 👋
I decided to join after half a year contemplating switching to FOSS and GNU/Linux - the whole whatsapp controversy finally pushed me!
I'm a complete Linux/GNU newbie and I hope that I can learn the inner workings of it all. - If you have any recommendations for learning resources please let me know! - Right now i'm using Linux Journey and YouTube videos
I am using Pop_OS! - I love it - but hope to move to Arch once I get the fundamentals down 👍
See ya! 😁

I think I'm close to deleting WhatsApp now that my final group is leaving it. I am down to a handful of proprietary apps at this point and really closing in.
I just wrote a short gushing review of #bspwm really enjoying it, I'm so bad at consistently writing in my blog, I just don't write very well, but well, there is only one way to get better ;)
