don't worry, the army of old guys who know Linux will tell them what went wrong
Man I'm glad there are smart people like you around, who know some smart people.
Somebody forgot about shipping and handling.
And Economics 101. If you somehow managed to bring that much iron to the Earth, it would completely change price structures. Iron would become essentially free as a raw material, with only transportation and processing costs. People would develop all kinds of new applications for raw meteoric iron to take advantage of its low price, etc.
Foreign ownership numbers in Toronto are relatively low. A lot of things you're saying are kinda the super simple story version of reality
Nobody who ever died in a car crash would have died in a car crash if we didn't have cars. So cars are a loss?
We're talking about disabling application packages. Not even rooting or unlocking it. There's literally no danger. Worst case, you might have to plug it back in and re-enable something or download an alternative equivalent.
Here, I'll make it easier:
Never actually tried it myself, but it makes a nice GUI with boxes you can un-check.
Is it really too much to ask to dig up the Android SDK and the relevant drivers for USB connection in your OS of choice? Do we complain about needing to get Python or
Hours? I'm talking about minutes here. Not even very many of them.
The practice *I* want to continue is the ability to purchase phones that have removable batteries and card readers that I can repair with no tools other than a screwdriver. The only contemporary phones that still have those features are made by LG. I'm willing to accept five minutes of inconvenience in plugging in my phone and typing a few commands to kill a few apps I object to so that I can continue to get proper hardware, rather than accept a lame device with hardware that I'll NEVER be able to modify.
If you know how to use adb, you can disable all the stuff you want on your Android device. Literally everything is modular, so if you like the dialer on your Asus phone better than the one Samsung gave you, go ahead and switch.
There's no reason to do anything but buy the right fit of hardware. Everything about the software load is adjustable even if you don't feel like dealing with root access.
Even the Pixel has what I'd call annoying bloat, but since it only takes about five minutes to clean all of it up on a device I'll probably use for a few years, this isn't much of an inconvenience.

Thanks. Great advice. You're very helpful, maybe you should seek a career as a Bastard-Operator-From-Hell. I am required to use Windows to run one piece of (bad) software that is only available on Windows.
Whoa whoa whoa.. back up a bit with the gender mud, I'm pretty sure Obama wants to be called he.
Doesn't matter. They'll just be calling us all "cucks" since we don't beat our wives or espouse genocide against people of color.
Windows is my tool. I use it to work. I don't want a damn eBook store or ads on my desktop or a touch interface that I can't touch at my desktop. It's like someone put a f**ing little LCD screen in the head of my hammer that shows me ads while I pound nails.
and let slip the dogs of war!\n\r
What really gets me is how most of the time I insert the USB connector correctly only on the THIRD try. That's proof of hyperdimensional geometry right there...
