>encryption is too hard on linux
Literally easier than Windows. Why do people still rely on encrypting files through a closed source operating system?

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?
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.
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.
Who care about freedom? I also see the chink thread, but that's basically /buyfags/.
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?
Only to make the livestock- I mean people feel calm and comfort.
>How do you "program a robot to be female"?
make it act feminine and glue tiddies on it's chest
> what the fuck use does it have to make it refer to itself as a female?
people want that sweet mechanized robo-pussy
You're the cringeworthy one, reddit-kun.
What do they mean by "unix experience"?
How does one knows if he has unix experience?
/g/, have you ever attend any hackathons? why and why not?
Have you left this shit hole
Where have you moved to
Better to have the ruskies hold onto my email data because the russian displomatic relations between my country and them are so horrible if they were ever audited or asked to give out the info they'd probably say "go fuck yourself".

I've been seeing many anons saying that chromium is a botnet. Is that true?
Would you use microsoft products if the company was european?
Many people here avoid american company products because according to american law, inteligence agencies like cia can demand any kind of info these companies have, which means your info that ms stores on its servers, where in europe that is not the case

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