>encryption is too hard on linux

Literally easier than Windows. Why do people still rely on encrypting files through a closed source operating system?

One of the biggest things that bothers me on Windows is that you cant always update your computer if you use full disk encryption like with Veracrypt.

Can anyone explain the concept of "freedom" on the internet?
Does using Linux, VPNs and botnet-free browsers and search engines guarantee that your privacy is being respected? Don't we in the end use the same hardware, the same ISP and backdoored CPU to connect to the internet? Doesn't internet provider can see what you're doing online?

>>62296928
There's no guarantee of privacy regarding the internet. That said, no, a VPN prevents your ISP from seeing what you're doing, other than connecting to an ISP. Insofar as backdoored hardware, there's not much you can do about that. But backdoored hardware doesn't mean you shouldn't protect your info from non-government entities.
>>
>>62296928
Those things are like having alarms and security cameras on your house. They don't guarantee that you won't get burgled, nothing can. But closing off all the obvious routes makes it much less likely, and probably less severe if it does happen.

You don't need to worry about the management engine stuff unless you're an Iranian nuclear physicist or something. Those do not get used to mass dragnet surveillance, it'd be too loud. It'd get detected and patched, and it'd be on the front page of the newspapers. The NSA hates being in the news.

Like home security, you don't have to make it impossible to break in, you just have to make it not worth the cost to.

How do you "program a robot to be female"?

A robot is non gendered, it's not organic. You can fool someone to think it's female by giving it a female voice and design.
But what the fuck use does it have to make it refer to itself as a female?

Don't use trisquel because because battery life 80% depends on firmware and libre firmware doesn't have those hacks.

I get 6 hours or so out of an OG battery, no TLP or anything.

If I'm not a programmer or a developer, is there any benefit for me to learn Vim or Emacs?

vim is nice if you're a sysadmin

If you write anything then a good text editor like Vim, Emacs or Sublimetext can be useful. You can add spell-checking and quickly make changes to the whole document.

Here is a lecture from a non-programmer (journalist and writer) who use emacs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtieBc3KptU

Here is a blog post from a non-programmer who uses emacs: http://standardsandfreedom.net/index.php/2016/10/09/an-emacs-update/

Stephen Pinker and Neal Stephenson have both said they use emacs.

>>62296361
Vim is ONLY nice if you are a sysadmin. Otherwise it's just a pain in the ass text editor to learn. Especially for anyone without an American keyboard who are not able to have sensible keybindings (even when you change them because as a sysadmin you mostly work with default keybindings anyway)
