    People are conditioned by Windows to treat it as normal that they are using something developed by a hostile entity, but that entity is kinda benevolent and doesn’t do … what it can always do and no one will notice for a few months or years.

    I switched to Linux being 16, so - still sufficiently maximalist to just believe that it shouldn’t be this way at all. (Still I have Chromium installed and sometimes use it, so same situation as everyone.)

    For sane adult people it’s hard to just say no to unhygienic parts of tech, at least in their own mind, because IRL of course you can’t get rid of everything bad.
