And that is the fundamental difference between you and me.
As the thread started, about the google operating system, I am not
forcing anyone to put it on their system, or not put it on their system.
I believe that each person has the freedom to decide whether to put it
on their system.
I have simply said that I would not willingly put it on any system for
which I am responsible, and, why, and that if any person then puts it on
their system, then they must accept the consequences.
It should be each person's choice, as to what they put on their system,
and, what they run on their system, and, with whom they sign up, for
Internet services, as long as none of these, harm other people.
That is my whole point.
You obviously think that people should not have these freedoms, and that
they should be coerced into putting stuff that they don't want, on their
computers, and, signing up with oreganisations with which they do not
want to join.
And, that they should suffer harm, until they submit.
That is the difference between you and me.
