MINT taken over by private interests....

(1/8) > >>

PKTKS:
Seen this film a dozen times last decades...

BIG corp buz takeover small or smaller folks and gradually sink them..

I am also wondering for quite a time that *NIX has been taken over
by private interests .. big corps (fill the blanks..) which has nothing
to do with *NIX but sinking them for their good...

CF SLASH.. it won't take long...

this film repeats over and over.. no changes.
no competition no market .. just a hand of big corps buz...

More hyperbole me thinks.

I use Mint and AFAICT they have accepted sponsorship from Mozilla in exchange for delivering plain-vanilla FF, just as any user would get if they downloaded FF from Mozilla's website. You don't even have to use it. Isn't Brave the new kid on the block anyway?

Mint is an excellent distribution (for me) and if this keeps developers employed/interested or even expands the number of paid developers, then great. All the better for me.

Made a MINT vanilla to my 6y nephew play his loved games...
Minecraft and Sargent MarkiV BrutalDoom (comic mode)..

He love that xyt... can "upgrade" system.. click anything..
fuss around..  that buntu thingys is made for kids..
obviously he does not have a clue what he does..

Choosen that hoping to prevent to expose him to the under the hood
model of thinking that letting your privacy data in the hands of
some corp buz.. (GPS info, com info... habits etc.. ) is a natural
or normal thing..

E.G> it should not be normal for a child to think that surrender
his personal data info is acceptable...  it should...not

Things got to ground zero again..

Starting to look alternatives to wipe out the mint machine
with some safe trusty other.. free of commercial spyware shitware..

I think Arch derivatives should be fine for him now...
still wondering..

Just coffee strong black no sugar... 

Helps me keep the pace of maintaining things working at safe sane level...

Including our game server....  alas ... he loves that so much he
kept his super heroes on top of it..  ::)

BUNTUs were working fine so far .. in such case...
I think it won't take long to turn out to be EXACTLY a MS replica...
