I just wiped out Ubuntu from my computer. The red flag was Ubuntu’s depricating of ffmpeg for a minor fork avconv,- Libav . That got me looking at who is bankrolling Ubuntu. The current baker of Ubuntu is Canonical Ltd. Canonical’s current owner, and founder is Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth. Shuttleworth spent US 20-million to fly in outer space. Who is giving him money? For me Ubuntu does not pass the security “sniff test.” Back to OpenBSD for me.
