After last weeks discussion in the after show about Gnome 40 and some of the interface changes being made, we couldn’t help but compare those changes to one of the most beloved operating system of it’s time. In this episode, we’re going to talk about this OS to find out why so many on the show consider it one of the greatest mobile Operating Systems ever. In addition, we’re going to check out some new goals and updates coming to Tails in 2021. Plus we’ve also got our famous tips, tricks and software picks. All of this and so much more this week on Destination Linux.

I think it would be interesting to see a resurgence in WebOS on a mass scale. I can’t remember why I was so much more pro Android at the time, something I regret now, but seeing some kind of open source competitor is absolutely a dream of mine… and I’m sure a hand full of others.
Interesting that https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ has a faulty SSL certificate. Doesn’t inspire confidence.

A few DLN Forum discussions over VPNs:
As raised by @MichaelTunnell PIA was bought my Kape.
Kape owns CyberGhostVPN and since buying PIA they’ve added their signature unprotected false positive to the top of PIA’s website as well. Below is the result I get using ProtonVPN informing me “You are not protected” and “Your Status: EXPOSED”.
Kape’s no stranger to using false positives to move product, they also own DriverFix which according to malwarebytes was discovered to be pushing false information to sell updating software.
Browsing through kape.com today they’ve reinvented themselves as a…
on their about us with no mention of their other products anymore (that I can find).
Does that make PIA a bad VPN choice? I don’t know. I just don’t trust Kape to take an ethical stand when they need to.
Awesome info @Ulfnic! And thank you!
