Yeah, maybe you're right.

Reading Larry's blog post about this gives me visions of a high-functioning autist or even sociopath who doesn't understand why everyone just doesn't agree with him, god damnit, but if he just writes enough about it, he'll sway people to his point of view. And of course, he has never ever been wrong about anything. Ever. At least not in his own mind.

I've been there myself, I've had friends with the same tendencies, it's rather disturbing.

We almost certain disagree wildly when it comes to politics, and probably other subjects, but that's fine, and I agree with you 100% on this issue. I've done some of the most productive and enjoyable work in my life alongside people with whom I do not share a lot of viewpoints, but it doesn't matter. We were there to do a job, and we worked well together and produced great results, despite our personal differences. Maybe even because of them. And yes, we had some spirited discussions over lunch, but when it was time to work, we worked together.

People's private lives are private. Unless they decide to make it a problem, it's not a problem, and shouldn't get in the way of Getting Shit Done.

The best possibility is to find a version of Linux that does what you want it to, install it, then keep it far away from any and all internet connections. That is the only hope you have that it won't try to update itself, install new versions or discover that external stuff it expected to find has mysteriously been moved or deleted by the notional owner.

He was asking about Linux, not Windows 10.
