    We really need a non-Android Linux flavor for mobile devices. Ubuntu tracks us. So they're out.

    This is why I create a Google account just to download Tapatalk and a few other apps to our tablet. Then I delete the account and stop using it. I don't use sensitive apps like banking or password managers or online shopping on the tablet. I stick to a more secure PC browser for anything I care about.
