Just run a BSD distro if you really wish to be secure...
Hear that, might toss net BSD unto the laptop wife is giving me. Possibly dual boot with a Haiku system. Not sure at the moment. Though I'm sure I want try something aside from Debian. Debian is nice and all but it lags a bit to upgrade in general. Then, with NASA using it figure that in part is why.
Nice though down the street today. An old guy actually came up to me as I went into a shop and said "hi how are you going mate" What a good moment. I said "yeah great mate, gonna get hot though this week, you take care" Him, "yeah heard it is, you too". That exchange used to be very very common before covid here in the bush.
Anyone passing another, 7 out of 10 would nod or say hi or g'day. A year on its a welcome exchange and rare.
Times are changing huh!
With so much roadway in WV the state runs a Courtesy Patrol. These folks run in a UTE styled pickup truck, white. You break down they come along and help out best they can.
They help fix flats, carry extra Jerry cans of fuel, oil. They carry phones, cb radio. Will offer a lift to a mechanic's shop, fuel station and back. They even been known to get people to a motel/hotel and a meal.
A lot of these folks are volunteers. They don't get anything aside from being helpful out of it. Overall the courtesy patrol leaves WVians generally more open socially. There's times people pay on someone else's grocery bill for example. People stop one another in stores, on the road, just chat away.
Agree though it has been becoming less and less. Hopefully it needn't be much darker before the coming dawn.
