Not much of a browser

Re: Is GMAIL raping you?

No, I understand. The point - which YOU can't seem to understand - Google, Facebook and other social media services are, IN FACT the collectors, and distributors of your data to third parties such as Cambridge Analytica for one, the shady data firm who, loved to rape data that unsuspecting people left on Facebook. Google does the same with peoples' data with their own analytics and others'. Here is the point: The surrendering of authority by Google, Facebook, and other social media to third parties is not ethical even though their terms and conditions tricks you to agree to their shady 'moral principal'.

Is GMAIL raping you?

Linux

Try Linux. Once I did, I never looked back . I use Windows so that I can use Adobe's Photoshop and Lightroom, otherwise, I can do everything else in Linux and enjoy it. I ran out of time waiting for Windows to update every Tuesday. Linux Mint is my favorite, solid as a rock. Manjaro/Arch Linux is good, too.
