Junk for the misguided and gullible.

Perhaps it needs to be revised for the 21'st century to every second.

Never trust advertising, judicially confirmed, everyone knows that advertising lies.
At least in Germany, you can't complain about it.
Except against cream butter or "the power that goes through the knot" :wink:

searx and whoogle?

Everyone must know for themselves what they use, but everyone should know that there are alternatives that do not make money from user data.

Tbh, I like duckduckgo model. They show advertisements, but don't track us.

I respect developer's effort and agree that they should earn but nobody should deal user's data / track users to show personalized advertisements.

I run a Pihole, so ads are a thing of the past, add the built-in (optional) forwarding DNS server and tracking is gone too. :slightly_smiling_face:

All network-wide coverage.

We have to choose one. Because amd doesn't have Integrated GPU.

And in India, amd gpu are very expensive and I don't need dedicated GPU.

So, I chose intel.
(I will be building new pc in july this year)
