Raspberry Pi OS has turned into spyware for M$:

And yes, they add M$'s repository key to APT's trusted database and add their repo to APT's repo list.
Without asking.
Or informing you via a NEWS file.

So now every time you do "apt[itude] update", M$ will know about it.

This isn't the first time that the #RaspberryPi Foundation changed your sources.list without asking: x0f.org/@FreePietje/1037994382

Fuck that.


@FreePietje Argh. The RPi is such a cool little computing device, but things like that make it unusable for everyone who wants to have at least a little bit of security, and of course for literally the whole industry. Can't install something like the RPi into production lines if shit like this happens.

You can run (pure) #Debian on them and someone mentioned Gentoo works too. Likely Arch does too and likely other distributions as well.


@FreePietje @KopfKrieg I can't fathom why you would ever need a distro that isn't at this point, but any distro that supports arm or arm64 should work.

@BalooUriza @FreePietje You all do realize that I'm talking about industrial applications? I can't just switch distros, I have to use the official one (also because we don't use Raspberry Pis but their industrial version which requires special kernel support).
