No matter what you do or teach them, they will do it.
The idea is securing the workstation. I am shocked that a company sized as Solarwinds being in that business didn't setup complex policies. On Windows, you gotta be Administrator to mount ISO files or install such deep level software.
Everyone wondering around as Root, sh*t happens.
WinRAR Author is Russian too, he lives in Germany as far as I know. Issue is, we don't know if these people are Putin supporters or dissidents. Actually we shouldn't even have the right to ask.
GPL has a very stict "no discrimination" policy. People use open source/GPL software but aren't aware of "free in freedom speech" policy. E.g. an imaginary Ukranian missile may use 7zip internally and Pavlov wouldn't be able to discriminate it. Or, Zelezny could get sick of shareware winzip and run 7zip.
A legal analysis of "no discrimination policy" and how "no evil" policy has failed
As RUFUS is open source/use open source components it had to suggest disabling secure boot to boot Windows 10 ISO. People flamed author of open source/free software since it is "disabling secure something".
Reading PR response is one thing, reading manufacturers error messages is another https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1044664/
It is called: Microsoft Secure Boot
KDE has an excellent "Telemetry" implementation. I am sure they know about it, they just didn't want to give the user choice.There is a slider coming with nothing as default and if you slide it to right you send more information to KDE project step by step.IMHO it should have been implemented by Mozilla into Firefox rather than simple opt-in/opt-out scheme.
Paragon actually sells that code to large companies including Android vendors for great sums of money. Nobody is dumping anything.
Let's say you have a render farm based on Linux and all your artists use Mac or Windows. You need something guaranteed to work with considerable support. You go to paragon like companies.
Apple owns, designs the freaking CPU. Just hope old school app installs will work let alone installing Linux. People tend to think like it is PowerPC. Back in the day Apple was busy adding great things like Altivec to the CPU. Now they are only interested in locking down their iThings.
No trillion dollar company can be peace loving, democratic hippie. When we talk about China, we talk about trillion dollar business interests including a gigantic government.
The issue is, there is no such thing as allowing third party sources to install software. It is just that. If you really expect Ms or Google to "stand up against China!!!" you are naive.
I have a strange Hp Laptop which can't boot to Linux no matter what I tried. Also even if it runs live (Fedora with mbr) there seems to be zero interest in Linux world about 2 in 1.
So, kind of stuck to Windows, there aren't any testers at MS, even if they exist they're template typing outsourced people who has no clue. If you don't want a update nightmare with your own, unique computer when next version is released, you have to test it yourself and hope your feedback & telemetry make a change. For example, idiot thing complain about not being able to downgrade all my drivers via Windows update right now.
If I could somehow install and run Debian fine, I'd willfully spare my time and data though.
The apk served from www site differ from the Google play store one. That is very alerting if you know the inner workings of Google play. Sometimes, white hat developers of advanced utilities ship a "xda version" and play store version for good purposes.
Forget everything, pushing ordinary users to enable browser apk sideloading is evil.
Unless the app have auto update function built in. Google play will never update a side loaded app, if it did, there would be chaos.
Apkmirror.com shouldn't confuse you, they offer the exact same apk files signed by Google play store on purpose, their purpose is different.
What would change if Facebook closed down today?
Even a ordinary user who runs some "privacy" tools knows that there are tens of trackers in every page they visit and some advertisers do amazing trickery to profile users. Hell they even used battery level profiling lately.
This is more like people switching to Instagram from Facebook.
