There’s a lot of answers for that question below and above my comment, each one pointing to multiple factors but for me concerning about privacy it is for saving yourself from the sickness and madness that internet has turned into, it is about seeing things from another perspective. Ads and propaganda are used for spreading influence “Eat it, Watch it, Subscribe to it”, so you’re being influenced any time on web, so that you are having your mind weakened.
Basically concerning about privacy is for freeing yourself, build your mindset, mood, personality and finding stuff that suits your needs. When concerning about privacy you are no longer a marionette. YOU can do things all by yourself.
I am very worried about kids born on this era, if they keep the mindset “I can’t use a PC without Windows, without Youtube, without Android” and all the major platforms, they’ll be lost.
I am very glad for your reply. For sure, i am going to search more about it, download the ISO again and try it through Microsoft’s Tool as ajz said, although time is drowning me up to the neck.
It is very wholesome that people on Lemmy are so receptive, helpful and comprehensible. I’m very grateful that besides english isn’t my native language, you people still reply to it and thanks to ajz today i learned how to use “although” properly
Yeah, earlier when i accessed microsoft.com from a Windows PC there was some kind of “Windows Installer Tool” unfortunately it wasn’t possible for me to finish installing Windows through that tool because time wasn’t at my favor. I am really grateful for you taking time to search that for me. Tomorrow i’m going to try it again through that tool, maybe a bit of charm can change her mind to switch for the GNU/Linux side.
i still use email as an universal communication channel for me, so i don’t to have many messengers at once. if anyone wants to talk with me, i just sent my address to them. ez.
also hosting an email server for myself has being an alternative, but i have no clue how to even start. I’m wide open to suggestions. VERY WIDE OPEN
What makes me feel better isn’t being treated as an edgelord, actually this guy writing this long explanation it’s what makes me feel better, he would have not written it but instead he decided putting effort, feelings and time writing it.
Everyone who commented also has my deep grattitude and a place on my heart but i’m featuring this guy because of his effort and time writing it.
As they say “Time is gold” and he invested his gold on me.
For instance, once i have concluded that “People always say that i don’t owe anything, but my feelings are mine then i have something”
But after that “I have feelings, if they are mine, it’s possible to sell them? How much do they cost? Actually, what is’ selling feelings’? Does it have any physical meaning?”
Stuff like that
I’m grateful for your reply.
I’ve being really doubtful about joining GitHub as it looks very “professional” and i’m still a newbie, but try it won’t hurt me, i guess.
Actually i’m heading into being a dev, i really like this kind of stuff. Being surround by a bunch of servers while coding and hearing “beep boop” from the machines is really enjoying for me.
I have to disagree on some of his points, but agree in some of them.
First: I’ve never used Accessibility options on Linux Distros, so i can’t say for sure if it’s or isn’t good, but if he’s blind and is concerning about that, he’s right.
Second: Clear it for me if i’m wrong, but i guess most Linux Developers are not specialized on porting accessibility on something, they’re developers, this kind of port needs to be made from someone who knows how to properly do it, like a professional in Braille, it’s not fair to fault developers on that. It’s possible to fix this if Linux (open source in general) were most spread among casual people, most of them used to Windows btw. It’s totally comprehensible his concerns, but faulting all FOSS community for that isn’t fair, as they’re always trying to join people on FOSS and Open Source in general. I’d suggest for him to dual boot and try to join people on FOSS community, i’d never stop him for using Windows (I don’t know if accessibility on FreeBSD is fine btw) as he needs to do things by his own, but dual booting with Linux would be really great as he would spread his concerns more widely, as someone who needs these kind of tools.
yeah, most of my costumers have a Whatsapp account (to not say all of them), i’m trying to avoid using Whatsapp for my store and their privacy, but sometimes using it is required to give an “out of the box” feel to them. Most people on my town don’t have any pc, as they’re a bit expensive on my country, even flash drives, that’s why i’m not too concerned about my usb ports for now, as it’s very uncommon around here, but i’ll fix them soon.
Probably email is my main option for now, thank you for your suggestion, really appreciated it.
My passwords are storaged in a book and encrypted through single tags related to my personal life written in japanese .
If I forgive my passwords i just need to guess them. There’s no way someone can hack a book, know my personal life and be able to read japanese simultaneously.
