Concerns about Linux future
#1
Hi folks,
I do plenty of reading through various sites on various Linux related topics and something I have noted is this potential cosiness between Microsoft/Google and Linux kernels. There was some banter where Google stated they seek the complete removal of any Linux distribution and lately I have been seeing some indications of possibly Libreoffice charging for their applications. Sounds like MS Office to me. I think that it might be prudent to seriously consider downloading the last stable version of something and make that final. No updates, no upgrades - seal that distro and package system in cement. Even on my Pinephone and I have now eliminated any updates after this last Phosh scenario. Just as US stocks are in free fall so is my trust in digital [on line] systems. 
I think that not updating but continuing to research things is a best way to cover yur butt.
Chief the Cat.
