How do you explain to your girlfriend that you use GNU/Linux because it respects your privacy and not because you are a pedophile or a terrorist?

My ex wanted me to uninstall Linux from my own computer so she could watch Netflix, so I dumped her.
>>
>>52487034
What purpose is an explanation? Muggles don't ask these sorts of questions.
>>
>>52487034
My wife knows I'm a software engineer, she just thinks Linux is for advanced computer users. She watched me install Gentoo and all the text flying by while shit compiled actually turned her onto me. Fucked her good while that shit compiled.
>>
Why is she even out of the kitchen? Whatbare you trying to fucking pull here?
>>
She is already somewhat aware of Linux's role in the server world, so I explain using Linux on the desktop as a way of learning through exposure.
>>
Pretty easily. She thinks it's pretty logical to want to use software that I can read the source of, just like you'd want to eat food you know the ingredients of.

It's not a fantasy, it's pretty fuckin' common stuff. Glad to know I inspire jealousy in others though

I introduced to Linux a couple years ago and she hasn't owned a windows computer ever since. She just uses a virtual machine whenever it's absolutely necessary to use windows software or edit something in Word 2013. She gave a weird look just now because I suggested we should buy a little windows 10 tablet.

I am a muslim and the Secret police keep calling me to interviews all the fucking time even though I don't do anything illegal. My wife knows we are actively spied on by the state because they heavily imply it all the fukken time. It is harrasment, but it's the Secret police so what can you do.
I bet she appreciates a little modicum of privacy so we can try sending cutesy and embarrasing stuff to eachother. I get a lot less of that after the constant surveillance which all Young muslim men seem to get.

I have nothing to hide, but those who spy on me still makes my life rotten. People who disregard privacy are idiots.

Your operating system is the least of your worries, brah.

She thinks it's cool that I use Linux. She admires the passion I have for technology. While she herself is not interested in it, the fact that I am so in to it is one of the things she likes about me.

i'm not lying to my gf. that would set a bad example to a child. and it would make harder explaining why she hasto wear this bombvest on her trip to the white house.

Eh. I had a GF who got all hot and bothered when I helped her with any computer or software issue.

She was crazy, though.

Linux doesn't respect shit. You are just trying to justify using it because you are a hipster.

My girlfriend knows better than to question my tech. In any way, out loud or silently.

She knows she will get cut off from tech support and there are no other options available to her at my level ... unless she wants to shell out serious cash.

Besides. *BSD. Penguins are gay, not pedo.
>>
>>52487034
1) I don't explain to my gf why I use Linux. She uses FreeBSD with openbox herself, she's not a tech illiterate.
2) I don't use it because it respects my privacy, I use it because that's what I am proficient in and it's what I use at work too

She didn't want me to install linux on her old laptop because it would take time but she uses it on my desktop and let me install it on her new laptop when it arrived.

Whatever... I am tired of their shit.
I have been trying to converse with girls for too long, and while a few of them are cool, most of them are impossible to understand.
