The only modern smartphone you can (truly) own. To many in the world, modern smartphones have become the single most significant piece of technology in their lives, a gateway to the world and representing your digital life. This comes at a price however: the tech industry have progressively turned you into the product or entrapped …
rupp, your response echoes the reaction I get most of the times, when I tell people purism is fraudulent.
https://joindiaspora.com/posts/13935134 I had the same argument with unknown error. Until he changed his perception of purism. Unfortunately he deleted his posts. And only let his newest post stay present.
what a reply you posted.
That is because purism has been lying from the beginning. Not one of their hardware products have not been tainted by lies.
complaint I have is the level of tech that a person needs to have to read it is prohibitively high.
You are right. Which make knowledgeable free software people resent purism, because purism takes advantage of the fact that people are ignorant about the matter.
your writing is an “all or none” type
No, it is not. You do not understand this is not about free software. It is about not lying about your product. If seller says his 300g butter packet weighs 500g, he is a lier.
fully free, ethical and open-source operating system
is a similar lie.
was shocked by the revelations
Which shows you are ignorant on the matter. I am warning you about purism. I do not try to stop you from buying an iphone, android phone or librem 5. I provide you pieces of information about the librem 5.
avoid Intel products
There is no difference between amd and intel. No new x86 cpu is able to work if not running non free software. This is about informing people. You cannot do anything against it, if you want to have a x86 computer.
would need to have Purism become a processor manufacturer
This is about purism must stop lying about their products.
nothing we do anywhere is safe
It is irrelevant regarding purism is lying about their hardware products.
don’t see any presentation of evidence that the abuse is happening.
You show, you have not understood what this is about. Maybe intel and amd spy on computer users. Maybe they do not. What we cannot have, is a seller who says
fully free, ethical and open-source operating system if the computer runs software which is not open source software.
Intel is using compromised encryption techniques to send themselves information about my system
Can you elaborate?
taken a copy of the stream they are sending to themselves and decrypted it
One reason to favor free software is, free software makes it easier to verify what a piece of software does.
