I need a new laptop which I will be using for both school and personal. I want to install Linux on it and I was wondering what would be a better choice – the Librem 13 (not librerootable but still privacy-focused) or a librerootable thinkpad (can use libreboot but isn’t designed for privacy). I’d like to have some processing power for some on-the-go games but I would like to know which would be a better choice.
The idea being you can ask things like “what are some things I can use in place of the Facebook app” Or “how can I harden windows"And you’ll get responses from people with some level of social awareness who actually offer to help with your situation. You can’t ask anything in this sub without a bunch of neckbeard extremists telling you how you absolutely must run Linux, tails, never use a smartphone, and if you don’t spend every waking moment acting like you’re trying to hide from a federal agency then you shouldn’t even try being private at all.This madness has to stop. Some people don’t want maximum privacy. They just want more privacy, and they don’t want to be chastised every time they come onto this fucking subreddit.
I’m new to the idea of contact management and am interested in better managing my personal relationships (sending birthday cards on time, etc) and also launching my own business. Keeping track of client information and when I last contacted them will be key. I’ve seen numerous CRM database software online like Cloze, but don’t want to hand over all my data. Is there a privacy-minded way to organize and manage contact info? Access Database? An Excel spreadsheet? Some paid software?
What other chat type apps such as Kik are out there that are secure. Ones where you can search for public groups and stuff. I’m not talking about Signal or Wire or anything that replaces personal SMS.Is KIK relatively good?
