Linux privacy
 
In Windows, records of everything you do are kept, deleting history or even using "Evidence Eliminator" doesnt delete your history of everything you do. Any guy with the right software can see your history.

Not that I care I have nothing to hide, but it's none of anyone's business too. Since Linux is open source, doesnt that mean theres less chance of the programmers making the OS spy on you and make records?

How much of your computer activity is recorded in Linux?

you can check everything yourself.
