    DuckDuckGo in hot water over hidden tracking agreement with Microsoft

    Its fine to agree with me, but that's what the like button is for. My problem is you didn't add anything to what I said. Now I have a feeling this is going to lead to an unnecessary and pointless tangent that isn't worth debating over. Because of that, I'm dropping this issue and hoping you will...

    Then there's no point in doing so because it's redundant

    Then don't use any software or services made by big corporations. You already liked my comment about searx, so use that instead.

    You just reiterated what I said

    Being this is one example of DDG gradually going down the toilet, I'm becoming more confident someone may finally fork the engine

    I've tried it and found it to be too slow for some reason. Maybe there's a workaround, but I haven't looked into it yet.

    By choosing to be a victim, you're actually perpetuating the problem, which then makes it WORSE (not just for you, but for everyone else as well). Yes, companies unfortunately lie and use ideologies to shill a product (and often because they're greedy and want to make money off of you), but...

    DuckDuckGo in hot water over hidden tracking agreement with Microsoft

    While that would give you a unique perspective on how each search engine works, which would then show some are worse than others, I still think the idea of spreading is pointless when you use a privacy-respecting browser and privacy-respecting search engine (and can prove they stand behind their...

    DuckDuckGo in hot water over hidden tracking agreement with Microsoft

    I'm not saying Qwant is bad per-se, but it's a proprietary search engine, so I'd keep that in mind. There's no mentioning of Startpage being FOSS, and a public trading company called System1 acquired a majority stake in the company, which led to some sketchiness...

    Creating a lightweight arch based distro

    How will this distro be different than arch itself or other-unrelated distros?

    One of my coworkers said she wants me to dogsit for her sometime soon, which is nice, because I've always wanted to take care of people's pets. I will say there are definitely some things I'll need to learn beforehand because I've only worked with cats. Thankfully, two of my other coworkers have...

    Microsoft Warns Rise in XorDdos Malware Targeting Linux Devices

    With how many times Linux has gotten hacked over the last year alone, I can imagine a number of IT employees quitting just because script kiddies made their work a living hell.

    Linux Kernel Development

    I personally can see Linux becoming like BSD instead because then there's no single point of failure (whether it'd be the kernel team falling apart, these idiotic political activists (who don't even care about technology, btw) invading the Linux Foundation and corrupting it with their own...

    Linux Kernel Development

    @Here To Learn I'll most-likely use NetBSD before I go back to a proprietary OS

    Linux Kernel Development

    While I'm not going to deny the achievements the Linux Foundation has made for Linux itself in the last several years (as there has been plenty of them), I will agree that it does have some guilt of being a corporate shill (and it has noted this criticism on occasion). To be fair, anyone...
