Just wait to see what nonsense ensues if Microsoft's purchase of Blizzard Activision is approved.   >:(

What frightens me are all the accompanying cries of 'Who will Sony acquire in order to compete with Microsoft?' instead of 'Hey let's maybe not aggregate every publisher and producer under a select few supercorporations that are going to implement walled gardens and console exclusivity in order to drive sales against the consumer's best interests and eliminate competition which drives predatory monopolistic practices' but that might just be the anticapitalist in me speaking.

I dunno. The only people this move is good for is Microsoft, and given how Windows 11 is going, they're not building products with the best interests of the end-user in mind.

Yes all it does is leave me with the impression that the computer ecosystems of the coming decade will suck ass. Be ready to see windows as adriddled as android and as restrictive as IOS.

non-lineageos / non-AOSP android is, yes.  Advert tech is DEEEEEPLY rooted in.  (those two options though, are very clean.)

Sure, the tech is in there, but is it ad-riddled?
