Yeah, the thing is, they always say Android is more insecure in these types of things. But the good thing on android is that these things can be mitigated or even removed.

A preinstalled app you don't want? A normal user will disabled and a power user will ADB the hell out of it. Privacy or ads? Adblocker and done.

iOS cannot do any of these things, or is limited in some way.

Also their phones are really damm expensive.

@arctic Yes. Maybe for that to improve, we need to embrace corporations that strive to do things better (and actually fund them by paying for their services)...?

@alcinnz WIndows is the dystopian past we're trying to escape (and, hopefully, forget). It's not the future .

Help us #deGoogle #Free and #OpenSource Software!

Me, @TheMainOne, @taminaru and Tyler have started a hobby project to remove proprietary Google software from FOSS.

#Google plays a huge part in all of our lives. And #FOSS. Do you really want FOSS software running #proprietary Google code?

With proprietary code, NOBODY can see what it does, or what data it sends. Proprietary software is also embedded into a lot of FOSS projects.

Google STEALS your data. It steals your control. It steals your #freedom.

Help us put the Freedom back in FOSS.

We just shipped v0.1.1 of the P2P Matrix proof-of-concept - and have put together a write-up explaining the project to formally introduce the project, given we're at the point now where you can actually start playing with it! 🎉🎊🦩 matrix.org/blog/2020/06/02/int
