Protecting Our Privacy Online – New York Times

The last time I checked, it was illegal to invade my privacy by tapping my telephone, or for that matter, to jam communication lines. This is exactly what is happening when my Internet communications are monitored, or someone jams an unwanted message or virus into my computer.

Why aren’t these activities treated as crimes? Furthermore, why do we tolerate software on our computers that allows this sort of thing to happen?

The next mega-billionaire will be the person who invents a computer operating system that is immune to these kinds of intrusions and gives control back to the user.

I heartily recommend an operating system that is immune to these kinds of intrusions and gives control back to the user. Enjoy!

(Yeah, I shouldn’t be so snarky. I’m just a little annoyed that there are so many users who would like to know of alternatives to Windows and do not because there’s too little reporting on the subject. Tell your friends! Ubuntu and Linux are great!)

(And it’s funny: Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu, was already a mega-billionaire when he started.)

(So, please! Try Ubuntu! It’s much fun!)
