Protecting your privates is important

>> No.62401122

There's a happy medium. Going full FOSS is dumb and limiting unless you're truly an important person with top classified information (nobody in this site is), but taking basic steps to protect your info/files is always a good thing. i.e. Nothing wrong with using anti-tracking addons for your (non-Chrome) browser and basic file encryption, but switching your BIOS to Libreboot seems like overkill.

Of course, in the workforce none of this matters. At home I use probably a 50/50 split between FOSS and non-FOSS, at work we all just use botnet shit because it's easier that way and most of our customers will be running our software on botnet browsers and OS's anyway.

>"Why, yes, I do hinder my life experience by posting on /g/ and arguing with people on the internet about the superiority of my choices. I do this under the false pretense that not only do I have a life but I enrich the lives of others by criticizing their personal choice of software. It matters so much to me that someone else's machine run the software I feel is superior that I've driven away all members of the opposite sex by neglecting to wash muh privatez, thanks for asking"

People who don't matter should guard their privacy just as closely as those that do, so that those who matter can't be easily distinguished from those who don't.

But I'm literally on Arch right now...?

Then what the living fuck is the point of these threads? Kill yourself, OP

>> No.62403143

I assume you meant to quote >>62403063?
I use Arch on my laptop because I had a limited internet connection for a bit and had to reinstall something when the HDD died. Arch was a smaller download so I just installed that and never bothered to replace it because it's just a laptop where I don't really need to do much.
I do not exclusively use FOSS, not do I use CuckCuckGo.

Again, who gives a fuck? Use what works for you and stop posting this thread multiple times a day
