Snark aside, there are two important things to note about this:
- Ubuntu already has options in the system settings for you to do basically the same gsettings tricks mentioned on that site.
- Trademark law basically forces all trademark holders to be jerks, or lose the trademark.
That said, I don't have the confidence that the privacy settings code can successfully avoid bitrot over the next few years as more and more integration with online services is added. I already scrub through the package lists and do similar scope package uninstalls each time I upgrade.
It's really helpful to have someone like the EFF keeping tabs on this!
