    Advertisers and trackers on Linux

    Apologies if this post is naive or just plain dumb. BUT, here goes. I just installed Linux Mint on my system. I like the way it works; its simplicity, elegance really. I like the command line interface; takes me back to programming in Fortran in 1974! However, my expectations were that Linux...

    Favorite Password Manager
