Humans are either the virus or the answer? Luckily we make it up as we go!

All not some...

Add: either way we are same as clones.

1 + 1 = 2
2 - 1 = 2
&c.
Can be done infinite ways, none can limit that! Why try, ego, greed,,?

Add: must think they're doing god's work...

"free software" (remember that?), perhaps not... "open washing" springs to mind...

All streams flow to freedom. In fact the virus I brought to mind was from the corporate definition of a GPL.

Seems we can makeup (follow or not) and interpret definitions anyway we want, average corporate minds and laws define the general public as a virus or at the very least sheep to be heard(-no pbun for that shank sandwich).

Seeing as how I was 1st in this thread.

Plus I find it amusing folks assign personalities to their crescent wrenches and channel locks.
Which is what I consider applications are on a computer.

I can say Microsoft has not supplied anything since initial install so far. Good thing I know the power of the hash tag in /etc/apt/sources.list.d .

I control what my tools do., They don't control me, soooooo much >> being honest.

Really? How many of them have you modified yet? Or do they all fit your needs very well? Have you considered submitting a feature request to Microsoft so their tools do what you need as well?

I know mechanics; they'll often cut the end off of an open end wrench, reangle it and weld it back on, if need be.

No one's gonna be like, let's fire up the foundry to make an already mass-produced wrench...

If more devices run Linux then more people develop with free software...

I wonder if Chocolatey will be required to stop supporting what they've released after it's been GA for more than 30 days?

For the most part apps need to ask permission before doing anything sensitive although underneath them Apple and Google do not.

Also iOS probably wouldn't run on my $15 phone But none the less I want to ditch A*****d asap. I HATE Google!!!
Do you HATE Google for Google, or for A*****d?

Speaking for myself, both.

Actually, all the downsides of A******d I see are a result of google being google, so I should have said "the former".

google. I've got several development devices running LineageOS without gapps or any hardware manufacturer bloatware on it. I really do not like the Android platform, period, but if one removes all google trash it's a little more bearable.
