If your time is free then I can see the attraction of open source. But for many (like businesses) time is not cheap and thus the requirement for better support with paid-for software. Often the hidden costs of Linux can be very high but many people choose to ignore such costs because they don't see them directly.

But that is not to say that all paid-for software is good, or even supported. Just that good software with good support can be well worth the purchase price. And like may things in life it depends upon your usage requirements as to where the cross over points occur.

So Ubuntu has/had spyware!

https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/ubuntu-spyware.html

There is no safe haven. The all important advertising dollar must be given its proper sacrifice.

It is not possible for any single human being to read (let alone understand) the entire source code of Linux. So you have to place trust in others to not do you harm. And now we cannot trust Canonical, or anything it makes or touches, because they are also just chasing those dollars, like everyone else. They will sell your data to others and claim it will "enhance your experience", just like everyone else.

So Canonical got caught. To bad for them. But that doesn't mean everyone else is clean. All it means they haven't yet been caught. Maybe today they are not doing a "bad" thing, but perhaps tomorrow when someone gets an offer from an advertising company too good to refuse ...

I never mentioned Windows. I wonder why you brought it up? I have no knowledge of deliberate Windows backdoors (there are certainly many unintentional ones), but I would be happy to learn about them. Do you have links to sources?

As for AES; once again links/sources please.

Authorities could later grab the computer, perhaps through border interdiction or something the NSA calls “customs opportunities,” and extract the password from this hidden area to unlock the encrypted disk.
