Bitcoin is very much like Apple's CSAM detection. A noble idea implemented in probably the worst way possible.
This is what happens if you put an inefficient prototype into production environment. Bitcoin was a proof of concept for decentralized ledgering system. It served its purpose, we should leave it at that and make a better system from what we learned.
Just a reminder, it is not just the tech overlords that want to know everything about you. Credit card companies have been tracking you for years. And for me, a small rock climbing gym in New England that knows my birthday so they can send me a coupon for a free day. (Give me a break, I was only 18). Delete
I was wishing for better default terminal color schemes, and today came across this project. Exactly what I was looking for!
I got my Frame.work DIY laptop today with:
Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7
32GB (1 x 32GB) DDR4-3200
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro®
2TB - WD_BLACK™ SN750 NVMe™
Plus these expansion cards
Assembled it in half an hour. Installed Manjaro Gnome 21.1.1 and everything works, including the fingerprint reader.

I told my parents in about 2008 that they should switch from Windows to Ubuntu. Otherwise, they'd have to find someone else to do technical support.
They listened, and we figured out which laptop would work best (a Dell, as it turned out) and after some initial 'training' they had seven years of trouble-free use of that laptop. Then they had my MacBook (some issues, not many) and now they're rocking a Chromebook Pixel.
Most of you here will already know the difference, but this is still a nice visual explanation to share.
