Is ProtonVPN worthy ?

It is a relatively new VPN, launched by the team who made the ProtonMail website.

https://protonvpn.com/secure-vpn

https://protonvpn.com/pricing

Their free version is quite attractive but I would know if people have an experience with them ?

Can you trust them with their "no log" policy ? I just want to browse the vanilla internet privately, nothing shady.

No it isn't. Only very few nodes are malicious and if you use https it can't do anything.

I fucking love the old internet and everything about it I was thinking about starting something kind of with the 8chan or 4chan mindset but maybe along the lines of a dedicated IRC server or even a BBS. Personally I'm a free-speech absolutist and honestly I want to start something that's questionably legal. Something that really Freedom right to the very edge.

Linux Users Going Their Own Way

It's time for linux users to go our own way. The whole "GNU"/linux ecosystem - more appropriately called the freedesktop/systemd/gnu/chromium/linux operating system.

* The red hat goons basically own the userspace now. If you want to make changes to your system you can send a patch and it wil get dropped. They essentially have 100% control, linux desktop will conform to their vision alone.

* polkit and dbus.. what do these things even do? Yet you have them on your computer most likely.

* GNU glibc is bloated and full of bugs *that GNU software depends on* and it is pro abortion.

* ls / gives about 50 things. for "historical reasons": Translations, if you try to make it simple like 4 or 5 directories all with a clear and distinct purpose every piece of software in existence would break because it's all badly written.

* every single programming language has its own fucking package manage that fights against all the other package managers. Is this a joke? Why are programmers, supposedly smart people, allowing this to happen?

* You have all this FUCKING GARBAGE that is overcomplicated and nobody likes like: systemd, polkit, dbus, gsettings XML schemas. None of this stuff makes sense, the documentation is unhelpful and the systems themselves violate standard UNIX design ideas - I wouldn't have a problem with that if they had actually improved on things.

* The web browser is about 80% of the linux desktop experience now. And while it's technically free software it's nearly monopolized (firefox is digging its own grave) and it's basically impossible to make changes to. lets be honest here.

* The shell's fucked. Try writing a shell script that correctly processes a list of files that might have spaces on tabs in the names. You can do it if you study but everything takes work when it should be simple. Programming with lists of strings shouldn't be so tricky.

* The core sets of software has so much historical baggage that could be cleared away. Did you know ./configure tests if your system uses EBCDIC instead of ASCII? configure pePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Apparently, TRON is a set of specifications for a Real Time Operating System, but not an implementation. An example implementation is available, but companies are supposed to implement themselves for their own products.

Tron is a pretty schway name, but its just an embed OS specification, not really an alternative to Linux on a Desktop or Server. Its sounds like the example implementation is more like a educational tool (cf. minux)

Open source search engine. Supports Google, Bing, Duckduckgo, Startpage, Archive.is, ThePirateBay and countless others, without giving your info to these websites. You can use a public instance or host it yourself.

>>9379

> saef web browse?

Firefox. Although everyone else will suggest you to use forks and such, they're often not as secure vulnerability wise. Besides, most of the telemetry Mozilla implements can easily be mitigated with a custom user.js file, along with privacy settings.

>start programming?

Start with Python, the slow but easy to learn language. Then move on to C++ when you get familiar with the basics.

Asking here is a horrible idea. You will only get meme tier advice like "learn to program" , "install gentoo", and learn electronics.

You are asking information technology questions. You should probably study information technology, as opposed to programming, or electronics. If you know absolutely nothing CompTIA maintains some entry level IT certifications, or test material and objectives, on information technology , that might be a good place to start. You could consider CompTIA A+, NET+, SEC+. You don't have to take the tests, but could, but you would learn a lot systematically by doing this about computers, computer repair, networking and security.

Hopefully, after reading the SEC+ book, you will realizing why asking unqualified questions like "What is the most secure browser" is non-sense.
