It seems that Linux is actually spying on its users I've been seeing a small amount of data going to sites like:
Typical of Linux humor. :<)>
When I googled these names I found that these, and other sites containing ".canonical.com" are used by Linux developers to gather user information to be used in designing the next version of Linux.
It can be disabled from a terminal, but it looks complicated.
I think I'll just leave it alone.

So true, lol! I bought what can kindly be referred to as a fixer-upper a couple of years ago and my daughter and I are attempting to, well, fix it up.............

I had my house built semi finished. I did all the floors, hung all the doors, built and installed all of the cabinets, did all of the lights and ceiling fans, and built and installed all of the window sills.
Took me years, and I really got sick of working on the house all of the time. Saved money though..
As for the Linux spying issue,.......
I guess I'm naive I didn't supect Linux. I think it's all benign though. Well, I hope it is.
......... I assume anytime I'm outside my house I'm being watched by a camera.
Don't be too sure it's only outside, especially if you have a web cam or smart phone.
"All societies are based on rules to protect pregnant women and young children. All else is surplus age, excrescence, adornment, luxury or folly which can--and must--be dumped in emergency to preserve this prime function. As racial survival is the only universal morality, no other basic is possible. Attempts to formulate a “perfect society” on any foundation other than “women and children first!” is not only witless, it is automatically genocidal. Nevertheless, starry-eyed idealists (all of them male) have tried endlessly--and no doubt will keep on trying."

Might want to assume this inside your home as well these days, that is, if you have any cameras in the home.
