Linux_Yes: lostcat: Edge is the browser that pops up when you accidentally click the wrong spot on the Windows 10 login screen before entering your password, right?

I mean why else would Microsoft put links to random topics on a login screen?

They know how easily led the sheeple are.


No one here cares about your FOSS cult. Has anyone on Fark ever responded favorably to one of your posts? We get it, you dislike anything that isn't open source. That's great. The rest of us here don't give a rat's ass. Take your nonsense to Slashdot.

When the witch Dr video came out last week one of my friends on Facebook was complaining because it kept getting taken down. They said the best way to get information was to turn the fact checking in FB off. I told them that they're still not getting all the info and that they need to disable the windows fire wall, anti virus and also make sure the firewall on their router was disabled. I figure if they're going all in, their might as well do it without any protection.

/windows gives me a warm feeling, late at night in the winter when the furnace kicks on because I made money helping people who "know better"

I never said it would be easy
I only said it would be the truth.

If u dont mind being snooped on and having someone else tell u how to use your computer then stick with closed source software.

Its a free country for the most part.


I like being able to actually do things with my systems.

BullBearMS: Edge doesn't stop Facebook from being able to spy on what you're doing in your other tabs.

Firefox does.

It can do the same for Google and all the other companies who have surveillance capitalism as their business model.


Purism SPC is near anal about security.

Their default browser on their laptops and PureOS Linux OS is Firefox.
