Are you using Windows? Want to make sure it is private as possible (with out going to mega extremes)? Check out WPD.app and Tinywall. A Windows Privacy Dashboard and Windows Firewall respectively. They do exactly as they say do, and do it well. I've recorded network traffic, and confirm nothing but what you allow leaves. They make Windows private again.
Man, if I didn't need the standard modularity of Gnome, I would love to use Elementary OS 6. It is shaping up to look really good! I wish Pantheon supported gnome extensions like dash to panel, but the team at #ElementaryOS is doing some serious beautiful work! I might not be using it now, but I'm happy I sent money there way in the past.
That strange space where my android email client (#FairEmail) works better and is more reliable than my desktop email clients (Outllook 2016 and Mailspring). They are all connected to 9 email clients. I do like Outlook the most because it has so many features. I particularly like that I can pause syncing of email whenever I need to. That is a feature that would be great to have on all email clients.
One other complication from moving on from Facebook is that the solutions available don't really include longevity. The migration itself can detail a lot of work, and take a lot of time. To do this on a platform that will eventually burn out when the one or two developers working on it, have had their fill, just really doesn't help encourage the move. Mastodon is popular now, but not really, and who knows how long its development and support will last? Just saying.
Are you a programmer, software engineer, or developer? What are your thoughts on FOSS / FLOSS ideologies? I share my thoughts here, and I genuinely would like to discuss it with people:
So installing /e/ or Lineage OS on the Fairphone 2 has been a bust. The system folder is not accessible because I haven't rooted the phone. I thought this would not be the case. However, trying to search for ways to root the phone is coming up with nothing concrete. What a pain. I was really interested in seeing /e/ in action as well.
@todd Just wanted to say that you guys are really crushing it. I am going on year 2 of ownership with my L13v3 and I find that I appreciate it more every day. Really well made solid construction. I really am looking forward to everything you guys come out with. Keep up the great work!
My problem with Switching Social and its efforts, is not that it isn't helpful to those looking to rid themselves of Google, etc. but rather that it makes assumptions about what to list and what qualifies. Their browser options for example are a good example. If you think that Firefox and derivatives of it are the only solutions, you are being hugely misinformed.
Software engineer, family man, and lover of good.
