Google's involvement with Android is on a similar level to it's involvement with Linux, it seems strange that you are so opposed to using operating systems in phones that rely on Google's input but you have no compunction about using laptops and desktops :?
that's the FOSS equivalent of saying
"Smoking is always unhealthy, whether you smoke one light cigarette or a whole pack of unfiltered a day".
It's true in a way, but its still MORE unhealthy to smoke a pack than one cigarette.
Living on principles alone is VERY unhealthy.

also, i doubt that google hardcodes phoning home into its contributions to the mainline linux kernel, unlike android.

and as always: do you have anything constructive to contribute, or are you just generally against things?

^ This :mrgreen:

I really do think you should at least consider trying OpenBSD, unlike Linux it has zero commercial involvement and a clear focus.

I'm afraid that it would not be the same as with Mandrakelinux. But anyway. Good luck for the project.
