Schizo Privacy Concerns

I genuinely don't know what I'm going to do in 2032, assuming I'm alive, of course.
My only hope is Linux, but I'm terrified desktop environments won't be good enough by 2032.
Call me a baby duck all you want, but this new Windows AI that screenshots and logs everything you ever do is the most dystopian thing I have ever heard of.
Will corporations demand privacy for their OS because they handle valuable intellectual property, financial records, lawyer suggestions, and other sensitive data? Will I be able to use a version of Windows where I can move the taskbar and not get systemically spied of via screenshots? I'm genuinely terrified. We need to do something. We need to organize a special interest group and start raising money from schizos to fight for.... something. Is that what Linux community basically is? Why are the desktop environments so dogshit? Is it Wayland's fault? Am I becoming the IQfy schizo archetype? What the actual frick is going on that people aren't up in arms over this Copilot+ dystopian nightmare? What can we do? Should I just hoard x86 components and try to contribute to Linux? I never thought I'd say those words

      Tell me what applications I have running currently on my main desktop then homosexual

      much like nintendo can cry and shit and fart all whiile we decomp their gay video game boot lockers I have no doubt that eventually stuff like this will be fully swatted out of windows 12. the only way they can get around it is to push for complete and total SAS and I think that would kill windows. there would be a serious decomp effort and tons of money would get poured into reactOS or a new version of it would come around. I dont see this as a thing because of privacy though. I see it because of games. Games and porn. This kind of shit is going to bother people.

      I hope so. How can people dissect and remove these cancerous lumps from Windows when it's spooky closed source shit? If Windows XP was open sourced, could a community of schizos just patch known exploits? That seems like it would be the ideal the more I think of it.

    If you're concerned about privacy, get out of Windows. All of them are compromised. No exceptions.
    You can tweak some stuff, but it's fundamentally not a secure system.

    If you're concerned about corporations sending death squads to your house because you said N-word in a shitty french game, that's not gonna happen. The state has monopoly on force and they don't like sharing it.

      fundamentally if you are using a modern computer processor its compromised. but theres nothing in windows you cant strip out telemetry wise compared to say, linux. theyre both just as pozzed. you can tell because the moment you are actually free from prism the internet websites will start refusing you due to a variety of fingerprinting issues.

      I guess my concern is that the government and corporations will continue to blend into one authoritarian force and if you do anything, even if it's legal, that impedes their march towards power, they will find some way to throw you in jail or at least threaten you by just digging through your computer. Am I actually just a raving schizo?

        Boy i got some some news for you...
        They don't call the US a corporatocracy for nothing...
        However, the US is not like China or Russia, they prefer a more subtle approach in terms of power. And look how well their propaganda machinery works, you're afraid that someone is taking away your liberties, like let's say... in China and Russian, so of course you side with the freedom lovers, the U.S.A 🙂

        You can't be free of PRISM/TURBINE programs, sorry. that's on ISP-level. Unless you airgap and use peer-2-peer networks or create your own network cabling. good luck with that.

    What about poisoning the well strategies? If the corporate government authoritarian conglomerate is going to data harvest every citizen they can, would it be possible to make scripts just as essentially web crawlers, clicking every possible link and poisoning the well? Will this just make it easier to throw you in jail for wrong think bc your crawler crawled something they think they can charge you for? Or would the crawler well-poisoner not be recognized as an action you yourself made?

      Some browser extensions use this level of obfuscation.
      Not every company wants to hold large swathes of information about its users, that's not desirable because it can get expensive and if it leaks, the company trust goes to shit. They usually hire analytical firms that crunch costumer data for them, while working for the side with intelligence services 😉

    I've been using manjaro with kde for a few years now and i haven't had too many complaints about the DE.
    sometimes an update fricks with my settings, but that's what i get for using an arch based distro.

    the only DE that's objectively bad is gnome, because for some reason they don't want it to behave like windows by default.
    I don't know who they're doing that for, since pretty much every human on earth is used to having a taskbar at the bottom, but i also don't understand people who pretend their keyboard has keys named "meta" or "super".

    why did you install windows 10 in the first place? gwx.exe was a clear giveaway that there would never be a good windows again.

      It just werks. Text renders properly with fractional scaling. Apps open and close as desired. Power tools snaps windows into place. The whole experience is just .... smoother, better, more responsive. I'm a KDE guy too if I'm using Linux, but frick man, it's just not as good in so many ways

        doesn't pretty much every DE have window snapping nowadays?
        and what about virtual desktops, does windows have that nowadays? I can't imagine using a computer without those anymore. Maybe a second physical screen would change my mind, dunno which os handles those better.
        being able to have one screen for the browser or documentation, one screen for my programming environment and one screen for messengers/email is pretty helpful, and having to shuffle around my windows manually to achieve that in windows is tedious

    We need a new series of constitutional amendments in the USA. A digital bill of rights that makes mass surveillance, consumer data hoarding, and other dystopian practices illegal.
    How the frick isn't there a giant political movement for a digital bill of rights? I remember people talking about this in 2009, but these days everyone's too busy watching TikTok to thinks about their society? Like what the frick is going on with zoomers? Are they actually just legitimately all moronic from iPads at age 3?

    Buy a Thinkpad x230 and install heads. Write protect the flash chip. Put nail polish on the screws and take high resolution pictures to ensure signs of tampering. Do NOT use a HDD or SSD. They have DMA so a malicious firmware could do a lot of damage, use of USB is preferred since they do not have DMA. Completely remove the microphone, sound card, webcam and the WWAN card from the laptop. Remove the fan to prevent binary acoustic data transmission. Replace the default wifi card with a supported atheros card. Disable wifi when not in use, preferably by physically removing the card. Make your own independent Linux distro from scratch. Most Linux distros value convenience over security and will thus never have good security. Your only option is to make your own. Use musl instead of glibc, Libressl instead of openssl, sinit instead of systemd, oksh instead of bash, toybox instead of gnu coreutils to reduce attack surface. Enable as little kernel modules as possible. Use a hardened memory allocator. Apply strong SELinux and sandboxing policies. Restrict the root account heavily to make sure it never gets compromised. Disable JavaScript and CSS in your browser. Block all gayMAN domains in your hosts file. Monitor all network requests. Do not use a phone. Never speak near anyone who owns a phone, they are always listening. Never use any non-corebooted technology made after 2006. Never leave your devices unattended. Tape triple layer aluminum foil all around your room as tempest shielding. Type really quietly as defense against audio keylogging. Use ecc ram to minimize rowhammer and rambleed. Encrypt everything multiple times with various different encryption implementations. Compile everything from source. Use hardened compilation flags. Always read through the source before installing something if possible. Only use the internet when absolutely necessary.

    >good enough
    Nothing will ever be good enough for you at this rate. You can break out of this cycle, adopt a better mindset, and create a demand for software and hardware that respects your freedom. You will lose things along the way, simply because your ancestors failed you. However, the trap that Microsoft set for you is so enticing, so why should you?
    >people aren't up in arms over this Copilot+ dystopian nightmare
    Because they don't even know about it. Even if they did, this is just privacy violation #321315125124512, and you can even turn it off! They are used to it. You can try to educate them, but you get plenty of blank stares. Others will even attack you. Do you even remember Snowden? Do you think things have improved overall since he leaked those docs?

    I woke up this morning and found that the VPN on my phone (private internet access) had connected to China overnight on it's own. I have never tried to connect to China before, I almost never use the interface, I typically keep it connected to a nearby node in Toronto. Nobody else has access to my phone and it's fingerprint locked anyways. What are the implications? Am I being schitzo?

    Just use Supermium/R3dfox. We now have updated browsers for legacy operating systems. Baby ducks are super autists who will backport anything to avoid having tro upgrade.

    We literally just ported Windows XP back to the 486, I'm sure we can hack Windows 10 to keep it functioning into the 2040s.

    the longer you wait to experiment with linux the more annoying it will be to switch over if you are forced to.
    you don't have to install it but i would highly recommend at least familiarizing yourself a little bit via live usb, virtual machine, etc
    worse-case you'd know enough to be able to back up a few files if your or a friend's drive(s) died in a pinch.

    Privacy is not just an illusion; it’s a delusion. Things like privacy statements and permission to use cookies are little more than sophisticated propaganda. If you think for a moment the Overlords cannot prepare a dossier on you within minutes that would make your mother faint and your father die of shame, you’re living in fantasy land. You have no idea how much data they store on individuals, and not just credit card purchases: tracking data, telephone conversations, text messages, anything you ever posted on the Internet. It’s a devouring machine. Get in their way, and you will find out how much they know about you. It has been this way for a very long time. This is nothing new. And yes, they really can turn on your cell phone camera and microphone at will without lights, so long as the battery is attached. And VPN? I laugh when I think about VPN. There is no cryptographic protocol used on the Internet, that the Overlords who brought all these technologies out in the first place, cannot decipher. None. The only way to live with this level of privacy evasion is to accept the reality of it. Stop thinking you are ever alone. Out in the middle of nowhere with no electronics on you? Maybe
