I use OpenBSD both as a desktop and server operating system precisely because they will never bend to the likes of government. Cloud and software companies will gladly bend to the will of government. Say what you want about Theo de Raadt but the guy sticks to his principles like glue. After accusations of backdoors surfaced, the OpenBSD project did a comprehensive audit which revealed no secret backdoor and ended up correcting some bugs and other issues. I trust OpenBSD for all of my computing needs.
Minero Digital awoke a sleeping giant. Once that is done, it's wrath is felt. I like how Lee Cheng said, "... Now that they have started the litigation, it would be irresponsible for Newegg to not finish it."
