It's lovely, but it took quite a few gos to get wifi working ;-) For realsies. And the worst part is that I don't know exactly what I did, that made it work. So I can't share it. It's basically Ubuntu without Canonical tracking your every move, selling your data to third and fourth parties.

Something to be said for that!

Is there actual evidence that Canonical does that? I remember an issue involving web tracking, but that setting could be turned off.

I'm currently using Xubuntu 16.04. I avoid Google's search engine, and use Duck Duck Go instead.

Actually, Ubuntu is based on Debian. I regularly use Ubuntu, and did see some concern expressed a year or two back about what was being tracked, but the discussions fizzled out after the Ubuntu One file sharing service was shut down.

Yes. That's the point. But Debian is not for profit.

 

You don't have to pay for Ubuntu either. I've never had to pay a cent for it in the ten years I've been using it. Purchasing stuff from Canonical is optional, as is making a donation when downloading.
