The simple fact that we depends of China for everything at the point that we concede when they pressure us (recent example : report of the UE for the covid) should be enough to wake up and see the incoming danger.
Military force is one of the many tools they use to dominate : debt trap, flood of dangerous drugs, harassment of boat in their own territorial water... Today this happen in south china, but tomorrow...
Ps : When I said China, I meant the CCP not the global chiness population
"it's just another hacking"
Like any other security...
"it's just an illusion of security "
From this point of view, why even bother with all security....
2FA is a security layer, it may not be perfect, but it make harder to compromise the account, the goal being to discourage the haxor... The more layer you a have, the more you will stay "undisturbed,"
I'm not a fan of 2FA either, especially using a app on a smartphone where you have no control and can't possibly known how many time a day it get access by unknown people... A system used by Localbitcoins the "printed paper codes" simple and "imo" more secure.
The nordvpn provider look like a honest one if you compare with this one : they deliberately log everything from their customer, even data with no use for debug / technical monitoring.
I can't see anything else than shady reason, if it is obvious that communication privacy, activity free of any log, anonymat... are purely commercial statement, the goal of this provider is far beyond making a juicy business. Another obvious red flag for this provider : VPN client closed source.
A efficient way to prove that the no log / ultimate privacy is a lie : Mass TCP port scan over a large netrange. If they don't log, monitor or trace who is doing what, you shouldn't be banned.
Torproject is one of the only service who can legitimately claim what all those brainwashing vpn provider said
As using a vpn rely on a blind trust of a third party, I would go for Mullvad
They claim to have implemented wireguard in a safe way : by making your system run the NordLynx binary, with root permission and going against everything what wireguard is made for...
The quote :
"However, it’s not all as great as it sounds. There’s been a lot of buzz about WireGuard lately. The protocol is still under heavy development, and it’s far from perfection. Yes, WireGuard can promise better connection speeds already, but its capabilities to keep users anonymous fall behind. "
Said by deceptive, misleading rogue company... They just need to pay third party website to spam of fake good review/comment, (they are legion on Google) .
"Everybody who has ever worked at that level in the operating system has agreed that systemd is the proper solution"
I can do it too :
Everybody who I speaking to agreed that's you are...
Everybody who has ever worked with systemd known how it suck, that gnome3 and all stuff you are making belong to the trash. But anybody is wheeling to do your craps when redhat and ms push it with $...
10 years from now Microsoft will own all this stuff.
I would have in other circumstances, take a stand against this, but the French president sold himself to China last month for more than 13 billions, without giving a damn about the situation in Hong Kong.
"stepping up the fight for the universality of civil and political rights." <--- Yeah right...
"No - US companies should pay tax in the country where profits are earned, simple as that!"
Agree nothing to add. As much it is wrong , France got what it deserve however.
I really hope they will fight for it before foreign country decide to end the chinese expansionism, this is sadly the only issue, no talk, justice, compromise, fairness possible with this government, violating treaty, international law, ingerence, censorship, propaganda, murder... domination by any means at any cost.
Hongkongers knew it was only a matter of time, as it is for the rest "free world".
Personal opinion : Never been choc or never found him particularly insulting by his way of talking.
"agreeing with everyone and avoiding profanity is the only thing that will satisfy some people."
This is sadly the behavior to have today, not long ago, I have the misfortune to trigger a reaction over proportionate for placing 1 "bullshit" in a of 2 hours argument with some dev on their IRC channel (widely used distro). The reaction wasn't natural, too pathetic for be true.
But it is useful to get rid of disturbing question...
"Google had to replace the whole user space with a copy of Java to make it usable"
Omg... make it usable by replacing the whole with Java ? Java is buggy as hell, it's slow and heavy, it's a language that should not even exist ! I have hard masked it to make sure never a single piece of java will get into my system
It's since Google, Oracle and other corporation mass pull their code on Linux the thing go wrong ! Take a look of debian, ubuntu, fedora with their gnome-shell, systemd, dbus (the worth of all), it's full of bugs, unmaintainable, exacly like windows and other commercial os based
You like Google ? The company that rape your privacy in exchange of a free closed source browser, with the only goal to better target their ads, owned by this guy https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2009/12/google-ceo-eric-schmidt-dismisses-privacy, are just a Google worker or a moron ?
... for a system not requiring security, stability or any serious control. Like gamer pc with steam / nvidia proprietary / graphics / media video, skype...
Now using it on a environment where security is critical, it is inconsistent. Working with a minimal distro, openrc, hardened kernel, strict rules MAC, permission... doesn't even guarantee a security breach, what more with systemd.
I still don't understand on what systemd, gnome3, Networkd or all the stuff shiped with most of the distribution Linux available has in some point, improved efficiency, security, and management of the system... I experienced the exact reverse of this : system unstable, bug, loss of performance and control.
Finally ended with Gentoo which is finally the easiest distribution to manage and control amd offer something the other don't : Freedom.
