I'm going to play a fair / just role in this thread, but first a disclaimer:That brings to mind an important point. How much have *you* donated to Linux Mint?
That's a rhetorical question. I don't think I've ever donated to that project, though I have to many other projects. My point is, maybe if we donated more, they'd have less incentive to 'partner' with someone who's also bringing Google into the fold?
Or not... They might just be happier for the cash and spend it poorly or hoard it while still partnering with Mozilla.
For many people, Google makes their life so easier in order to do their internet activities.
Talking about Mozilla, they are quite transparent on the way they constitute the Foundation and their activities. They publish lots of material on their conduct, public records and their constitution here: https://foundation.mozilla.org/en/who-we-are/public-records/. There are also plenty of material on how they approach monetisation and how they are trying to improve it for the wider community.
