Re: LibreOffice

My Smart TV I bought last year allows you to connect with streaming services but doing so, they force you to accept data sharing. There’s no opt-out option. Obviously I choose not to use the ‘smart’ part of my TV.

It’s disappointing that so much software and online services have links to unethical businesses like Facebook and Google. This is why we need standalone software like Libre Office and not subscription software with it’s reliance on online connectivity leaving us vulnerable to data sharing.
