Consumers are lazy. Me included. Linux is not there yet ... but a free alternative mostly & some lite reading can do most of what we need. + it's not full of holes. My friend describes the Management Engine driver we install as a miniature Linux. That's a tiny OS hidden within another bloated OS. So there's your backdoor to anything the creators want to stealth inject. You all want security. Stay off the internet. Unplug your SSD's & take them with you.
