@cuchaz Okay, but they're right(ish) though. A Linux desktop which gives non-nerds what they want from windows is barely distinguishable from a really janky version of windows.
The ish part being, of course, that a proper security minded nerd *can* avoid these surveillance without much effort. So yes, Linux *will* save you, provided you don't cripple it.
@saramg You nailed it!
That’s the crucial distinction. Linux gives users a real choice about surveillance.
