@XxAlexXx exodus reports third party libraries like google analytics or google gms. You can easily verify this. Try scanning WhatsApp. Can you see any Facebook tracker? No, exodus is only reporting google analytics.

Of course that Google Chrome doesn't need including third party spyware. They're the biggest advertising network in existence.

Chrome is way worse (incredibly worse) than Firefox in terms of privacy. And if you state the opposite then you have no idea about this.

I've used debian variants for development for awhile, but I notice a lot of people using fedora here. What advantages, if any, does it provide?

I've tried several different distros for various uses, including Arch, Manjaro, openSUSE, and Debian. Stability and package availability are high priorities for me.

Best privacy focused Android ROM

Anyone have suggestions for a terminal file manager with modern keybindings? Like micro is for text editors but as a file manager.

@eludom I agree with that, but I've never seen anyone who doesn't report vulnerabilities back to the developers and just exploits them refered as "researcher", but often as "hacker".

@theKingsRaven @person hmm the language actually doesn't matter too much. But the advice of starting small does.
It's a question of learnig just a few concepts.. A variable, a loop (aka iteration), how to print something. Then throwing those at little problems. Rinse, repeat. Wax on, wax off. You can do that in most any language. And once you get how a concept works, you'll be able to apply that in other languages.
So start small with just two or 3 concepts..

@AaronTheIssueGuy I would say other, but I don't know what to recommend without knowing what you're looking for.

Been using the key that's normally caps lock as escape for 10 or so months. I'm really wondering why this isn't the norm.

There are actually laws protecting the privacy of things sent in the US Postal Service. They have their quasi-law enforcement agency (the Postal Inspectors) and a body of law and regulations including privacy-related regs/laws going back decades if not centuries.

I'm gaining new appreciation for Snail Mail.

I don't talk about politics much mostly because I don't have much of an interest in it, but one thing I will say is that people being censored regardless of their view point is absolutely unacceptable, I will always support people being able to speak their mind even if the message they are preaching is something I disagree with. It's about time we as humans grew up and realized that censorship for one leads to censorship for all.

Just spent far too long trying to get gdm and GNOME to work with my dual monitor setup, it worked, but I had to reapply the settings every time it booted.

Switched to KDE plasma and sddm and it worked straightaway.
