Chromebooks foisted on students? Teachers monitoring what children do outside of the classroom via nonfree software? Surveillance of children is common, and it's at your child's school, too. Support

@fsf ChromeOS una distribución privativa de libertad del sistema operativo GNU/Linux tal como Ubuntu GNU/Linux, Mint GNU/Linux, Arch GNU/Linux, Debian GNU/Linux y tantas otras, que distribuyen y dan soporte al software privativo de libertad de los usuarios.

Yo recomiendo distribuciones libres, aquí una lista: Son las decisiones individuales basadas en la ética las que te moverán a rechazar el software privativo.


@Linux_in_a_Bit @fsf don't get me wrong, but they won't give a sh#t about you :/

@gmate8 @fsf
Yeah, but it's worth the minute it took to write that. At least it gets them thinking about it. Google probably almost pays them to use their stuff tho...

@Linux_in_a_Bit @gmate8 @fsf Frankly, google doesn't have to. They offer a suite of tools integrated with each other and tested with each other. Just not having to pay for that convenience is enough for a lot of people.

Never mind that you can get the exact same convenience *and better* with alternatives. That's work to investigate.

@fsf To be honest, I'm more concerned about this overuse of technology in the classroom as a whole. It makes no sense teaching any topic while giving your students that false feeling of confidence that Wikipedia, for example, will be always online and unbiased.

But if this is the way things are now, the focus should be on free soft over nonfree. Some issues aren't addressed fully with a free implementation, though, due to the tech illiteracy of most users. But it's a start, nonetheless.
