World’s #1 surveillance capitalist is platinum sponsor of Debian Conference #DebConf
In case you were wondering if “open source” gives a rat’s ass about your privacy, the answer is a platinum no.
What operating system are you using already?
@fabricedesre What's Gnu/Hurd like? Especially, how difficult is it for a long-time Linux user to get up to speed. Are a lot of the commands the same, or no?
@aral yeah that's sad, it's like the lord sith being the platinum sponsor of this year's jedi mind training retreat 😞
I think I'd phrase that the other way round: Google don't mind if Debian is under their influence. People attacking the Debian people (who are famously not necessarily.of one mind) for this is precisely the mechanism by which Debconf would suffer from this.
...not to say to just let stuff happen, but I'd say that a friendly reminder could go further here than one OS protagonist attacking a large part of the OS community.
This is my personal Mastodon.
