My key point was - - - - someone else forced updates and upgrades on their
Using options offered by the support team the result was that my server
would shut down.
Rather than not upgrading the system was forced down.
There were NO options for otherwise.
I tried to follow a clear out (method of removal) offered by the then lead
tech (Stephane iirc the name).
Still wasn't possible.
The resultant mess taught me that trusting something that a big company
puts out when
its desperately trying to get a market valuation increased and legitimate
is a terrible idea
and should not be done. Also taught me that ubuntu is not truly open source
- - - even if
it purports to be.
So maybe I'm too paranoid about my security and privacy - - - possible.
Except its my
choice to try things and when they bite and hard - - - I feel quite honor
bound in letting
the rest of the world know that that cute benign looking froggy actually is
looking to
swallow (own) me and likely you as well.
