It (always) bears repeating that the phrase "open source" is defined by the open source definition:

The OSI invented the term "open source" and it has always been defined by the OSD. There are systemmic gaslighting campaigns ongoing to convince you otherwise.

In a TED talk, EFF Cybersecurity Director @evacide describes the horrifying realm of stalkerware, a type of software abusers use to spy on their victims’ devices: "Full access to a person's phone is the next best thing to full access to a person's mind.”

Personal least favorite UI design change in the last 10 years - elements that disappear when *they* decide you don't need them.

Scroll bars, selection highlights, and other similar items fall under this.

And it isn't trivial to turn this back on, it's usually a moderately evil hack (or just not possible, usually).
