I've been using Ubuntu for 6 months now and I'm supper happy with it, though I must admit that I miss some UX/features from macOS. It's little things, nothing essential, so I think it's safe to say that I'm done with Apple. I still have a few devices, included the laptop in which I run Ubuntu, and won't replace them until they crash, but not buying their stuff again.
I want to try one or two more distros when I get the time, though: Debian and Elementary.

Finally got an Ergodox, but it's really gonna take a while to get used to it. First problem: computer is changing the default layout, so most of the keys other than letters don't even match the symbol. Given than I'll have to change the layout anyway to fit my needs it's probably no big deal, but yet another small step to take. Also, now I'm seeing that it would have been a good idea to get a set of white/coloured keys, because it's certainly going to be chaos after the layout change.

Unregulated use of facial recognition, with all data in some private company that nobody has auditioned so far. It's here. Police have been using it for months. They don't even know were all these images go.
"Because the police upload photos of people they’re trying to identify, Clearview possesses a growing database of individuals who have attracted attention from law enforcement. The company also has the ability to manipulate the results that the police see. After the company realized I was asking officers to run my photo through the app, my face was flagged by Clearview’s systems and for a while showed no matches. When asked about this, Mr. Ton laughed and called it a “software bug.”
