I love but it's really hard to stick with it. Linux does not work on my PC with driver, so I disable it from the start. Whenever I try to install non-free driver, it always breaks my system(except with pop-os, but not for long) πŸ˜“πŸ˜“

What does privacy mean to you? 

@zanko to me privacy means having full control over the information that I share, and with whom I share it with.

@FreeTube: How does subscribing to playlists sound. I would love to see this Implemented in

@if basically, I use dnscrypt-proxy and picked a bunch of servers from their list, and have the proxy select from among them, but really, I have no idea if any of the ones that claim they’re non-logging are actually non-logging 🀷

I make sure to use several different DNS servers so no intelligence agencies feels left out when trying to spy on me

@delta I saw a deltachat option in thunderbird 78. Do you know what's going on there??

I've recently been able to get my hands on a #pinephone from the good people over at @PINE64

Would anyone be interested in a written review? I plan on trying to set this up as a daily driver and will log how close I can get to replacing my other phone. I also plan on attempting to install #FreeTube and will talk a little bit about that experience. I'm open to answering any questions someone might have as well.
