Drop /tech/ black pills itt. Privacy has been dead for a long time, what do you do to protect your privacy? Why will the general public never care about these issues and why haven't we done anything yet.

It's probably quite easy to sneak useful bugs into free software, especially in light of stuff like http://www.underhanded-c.org/#summary (very entertaining contest, worth checking out along with http://www.ioccc.org/ but the second one's just for fun)
Intel's ME and AMD's PSP ruined everything, ever, relating to tech.
Even before IME, the glowing ones were embedding similar back doors into motherboards.
Modern GNU/Linux is just as shit as modern Windows, but at least it's free... I guess.
It didn't have to be like this.

Truth. Until someone goes rogue and builds a commercially viable open Risc-V with enough processing power we won't really be free.
For now I just use Linux, Brave and hope for a new platform or Libreboot support.
