LM was the first OS I ever used for Linux and if you are openly making declarations of your laziness then I can't fault you. Hell, I use Gentoo on my desktop but i installed Ubuntu on my laptop just out of sheer laziness. Mint is a great Os though and I can't knock you for using it for the sake of laziness.

Debian. Works for almost every use case from making old computers still useful to my daily programming work, container shit, server side stuff, etc. and has a massive community that ensures that you have reasonably up-to-date versions of every software within the linux/unix ecosystem.

Also it helps that at least some who use and develop for it still have an ideological inclination towards the FSF and real free software instead of being fronts for corporate shit (Fedora, Ubuntu, etc) or total sellouts like the user-focused ones whose priorities lie more towards being Apple clones in functionality instead of free software.

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet.

American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

Knowledge is power, if corporations or other organisations know more about you as you know about them, they have an knowledge advantage over you that lets them politically disenfranchise you. Class societies have a class war going , and the surveillance stuff is them following the doctrine of "know your enemy". Even if you are just a rightist social democrat that wants bourgeois democracy with welfare capitalism, you have to insist on completely removing the state and corporations from personal devices and home networks, or you' won't even be able to have bourgeois democracy.

Even if the proletariat has robust control over the state you would still make personal devices off limits, people store their personal lives in these things and it's almost like violating bodily autonomy if you give powerful organisations access to personal devices. You wouldn't want to be frisked by the police in the offline world even if you have nothing to hide, so it's not ok to do that in the online world.

It's also really stupid for strategical considerations, the NSA or big tech is not securing the access they have to your machines, so even if you are fine with making people corporate serfs without political rights, you would still hand them over to basically moderately tech-able organisations that can buy cyber-break-in tools from the grey market. Basically the backdoors to your computer and communications will become available to your local mafia, eventually, because big organisations leak what ever trick they develop.

For a strong socialist society the reasons are different, people cannot be politically disenfranchised even if you backdoor devices. But it would still compromise your technology and infrastructure. You have no reason to believe that a socialist society would be better at securing "the other end of the backdoor". It makes your society vulnerable to coordination-collapse-attacks. An example of this type of attack was the Soviet block dissolution. The entire economic system relied on the central planning buro for economic coordination and once the neo-liberal coup was able to bPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

the underlying technology is more or less fine but in recent years i rarely find non-software IRC channels that aren't just a shit circlejerk of cunts who've been on there since 2001, which has about one conversation a day which you've got no hopes of breaking into because people are here to talk to their friends, not the "new" guy who'll fuck off after 6 months of being ignored.

Matrix/Element is a fucking joke. Do I seriously need to not delete cookies to have access to encrypted DMs that were sent when I was offline? This completely defeats the purpose of using it via tor.

Its development has been slow and lousy but this issue is the one that takes the cake.

it depends on what you're using the matrix account for. If you want them to be linked, then use your personal email. Otherwise, get a new email.
Simple flow chart to use when deciding what emails and information to use with everything, i guess. FWIW I recc using a different email for everything, unless you have a strong need to tie together a persona like for work, or between social media accounts.

I think that's just how it is. It's shit if you log out. (actually some anon said there's a way to preserve sessions while opening a new one?) Maybe XMPP+OMEMO is better???

i used to use cock.li but they stopped letting you make new ones because supposedly glowies were using their shit for anonymous emails or something
honestly i suspect the exact opposite is what's happened, but whatever

basically anything that lets me register an email with no identifying data over tor is all i want. There's mail2tor or something, and there's DNMX which i guess advertizes scam sites but just don't click on shit basically.

Always assume your email provider sees everything, because they can. If you dont want them to see contents, encrypt it. If you dont want them to know who you are, tor is good enough for me but maybe just consider hosting your own email server at that point, or at least using a mail server on your computer rather than webmail just so you can avoid javascript… if that's not enough, i dont know i mean there's always contrived ways to increase security like if you're not wanting to be found literally (literally) by nsa investigations or very motivated hackers rather than just random bullshit, this might not be enough, but for the non-hyperterrorist basically that should work, just any email u can register over tor anonymously and for free, and then assume they read ur emails or sell the contents and then just don't use email for important shit unless ur using pgp

>>In 2018 she received a total of $2,458,350 in compensation from Mozilla, which represents a 400% payrise since 2008.[14]On the same period, Firefox marketshare was down 85%. When asked about her salary she stated "I learned that my pay was about an 80% discount to market. Meaning that competitive roles elsewhere were paying about 5 times as much. That's too big a discount to ask people and their families to commit to."[15]
>>By 2020 her salary had risen to over $3 million, while in the same year the Mozilla Corporation had to lay off approximately 250 employees due to shrinking revenues. Baker blamed this on the Coronavirus pandemic.[16]

Unless of course you're typing on weak tactile switches or shitty fucking linear switches. Then you might as well be using a worn out silicone membrane.
